Golden Gate Chinese Restaurant

This family-owned restaurant has been serving delicious Chinese cuisine in Mesa for nearly 30 years. The decor and ambiance are inviting. In the center of the restaurant is a fish tank and water feature that customers use as a wishing well and toss coins in. Once seated, a pot of hot oolong tea is served and you are treated to complimentary wonton chips. Their crab angels, hot and sour soup, and Mongolian Beef are winners. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and is a great option for a sit-down meal.

This is a great place for grabbing a quick takeout. If you’re eating in, you’ll find some chili oil on the table that makes a great complement to many of their dishes. Asian Cafe Express specializes in Hong Kong-style cuisine. The menu is huge and it may take a while to pick a dish. Try some of the Hong Kong style drinks like the Hong Kong Style Coffee with Milk Tea.

Dim Sum Cafe

If you’re looking for the best dim sum in Mesa, stop in at the Dim Sum Cafe. The dim sum is ordered from the menu and not from strolling carts.
