I have been going to Golden Palace for years.
A recent look at their menu revealed that they serve SHARK FIN SOUP.
I will not give this restraunt anymore of my business. Harvesting shark fins is a terribly inhumane practice in which the fins are cut off of live sharks and the wiggling body is thrown back into the ocean to die. Please youtube "shark finning" before you visit this restraunt to see if you wish to support a restraunt that contributes to the demand for shark fin meat. I would love to see this restraunt thrive, but I will not support them as long as shark fin soup is on the menu.
One of the best Dim Sum Restaurant in Houston – We love the dim sum here. The Hai Gow and Shu Mai are really good. Chicken feet is awesome and the Banh Cuon Tom are the best. Only drawback is the service.
Not honor in reciept – Bad service, add tip automatically in the receipt more than 15% about 17-18% if you don't pay attention to it. Add too much on your drink watch out....I won't come back anymore...food are average high than the others
Fantastic Food, Terrible Food – Best dim sum in town, but the service can make it one of the worst restaurants in houston. Management really needs to make a change in the way they pay their people bc it shows ias they candidly and obnoxiously ask for tips while not giving the proper service.
Some of the best Dim Sum in Houston! – The dim sum at Golden Palace is excellent! Super authentic and fresh.
Best Dim Sum! – The Dim Sum here is delicious and the variety is great. Come early on the weekends if you don't want to wait too long though! This place gets packed early!
Bad service – The service at this restaurant is unbelievable. We had the rudest waiter. The people pushing the carts do not stop unless you call after them. Refilling water does not happen unless you spill the glass.
The service is the worst thing about the place. To top it off they automatically add 15% gratuity to ALL tables.
Real dim sum – This place is packed every weekend during dim sum, and for good reason. The food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. My husband is on a low-carb diet but he'll bend it anytime for Golden Palace's siu mai and har gow. My kids love the cha siu bao so much that my mother orders extra to take home and re-heat for lunch during the week. Definitely the place to go for Hong Kong-style dim sum. Get there by 10:30 a.m., though, or be prepared to wait for a table to become available.
Service need some major improvement – These people flat out do not believe in customer service. They are more interested in taking your tips than refill you your water. Frontdesk girl is rude when you don't tip. No service, no tips. Period.
