''2012-08-04 15:22:01'' [[nbsp]] This place is really good. In my opinion, the best American style Chinese food in town. They serve your typical options, but they do them better than most. The sauces are rich and flavorful. If you ask for extra spicy, they deliver. The vegetables are fresh and cooked perfectly. Plus their lunch combo is an extremely good value, where nothing is more than $5.75! --["Users/aroach12"]

Golden Sun is a new Chinese restaurant, located where Red Orchid used to be. They have a very large menu with lots of vegetarian options. Feel free to ask for a different level of spiciness or other modifications to your order.

2012-06-08 20:09:31 The new name of the restaurant is Golden Sun. It is under new ownership. I stopped in and got takeout tonight and am so, so happy. They have a meal special that's an entree, plus rice, plus two spring rolls, plus a small cup of soup. (7.95 for veggie, 8.85 for chicken or pork or beef, 9.95 for seafood.) I suspect the small spring rolls were frozen, but they were still tasty. My entree was delicious. The woman who runs the front of the house is a total dear.
They lose a lot of their business over the summer when the DaVinci High kids go on break. Here's hoping others in town discover the good food and good bargains. I'm a neighbor, so I can walk over there any time. I'm hoping other folks will be willing to make the drive across town, because it's worth it.
(I have one of their new menus, but won't be able to scan post it for another couple of weeks due to work stuff. It has, as the manager said, "too many choices!") —AJThompson
* Edited to add: After I called in my order, the front-of-house woman — who's not yet familiar with the huge menu — called me back to ask me if I wanted fresh or fried tofu. She called twice, and she left a voicemail. This place has excellent service. —AJThompson
2012-06-10 09:30:46 I have high hopes for this restaurant. Our initial foray gave us large, tasty portions with fresh ingredients. Flavors were a little different than those we are used to, but were nice. —CovertProfessor
2012-06-12 12:23:01 The food is really delicious, and is in many ways better than the equivalent in Red Orchid. Of course, there is a much larger selection of entrees to choose from, but what makes this restaurant different from Red Orchid is the quality of the food. One of my friends ordered the kung pao vegetables and was extremely happy that they actually "had a kick" as opposed to the vegetarian options Red Orchid provided that did not seem to have much spice, even when asked to be extra spicy. I had a similar experience with the meat dishes. I ordered mango chicken because I was not sure what to really expect and was blown away by the blend of the mango with a thick, flavorful broth and the chicken. It was tangy, sweet, spicy all wrapped up in one, and worked well. I'm really happy about the change, especially since it seems like the same workers who worked at Red Orchid work at Golden Sun now. —SachinSalgaonkar
2012-06-21 15:04:35 They were not open Monday evening. We enjoyed Kalamarakia at the Symposium instead, but will try again. —SueHjerpe
2012-06-30 21:33:34 Got take out the other night: Chow Mein and Honey Walnut Shrimp was good. It is a million times better than the previous Red Orchid restaurant. —Magster
2012-07-09 15:02:56 Tried delivery the other night. I can attest that it's definitely better food than Red Orchid. Their hours seem incorrect, though. I tried calling and eventually went over to find that they were completely closed. Their menu states they're open seven days a week. Seeing as someone else reported they found them closed previously, maybe they're just not open Mondays? —Adalwolf
