Golden Wok - San Mateo

We were there over the weekend for Mother's Day after haven't personally been to the restaurant since the 80s. I got to said the food was better than I remember. The prices were very reasonable. For about $100, we got 8 dishes and a complimentary soup. We couldn't finished 5 of the 8 dishes and took them home.

Here are the dishes we got:
Salt & Pepper Tofu
Honey Pepper (black pepper and bell pepper) Beef
Mushroom and Snow Pea stir-fry
Fried quails
Soy Chicken
Sea Cucumber w/ tofu and mustard green
Fried crab (battered and fried)
Generals Chicken

Of all the dishes, the soy chicken was the only disappointment. It was way too salty. Everything else was from good to great. By the way, some of the dishes mentioned above are listed on the Chinese menu only.

One thing to know about Golden Wok is that it doesn't take credit card during lunch. But I assume that is for weekday only when lunch specials are around $4. Since we ordered quite a lot of food, they did not have a problem taking credit card from us during our lunch.

I'm not sure I'll make a special trip from the city just to eat at Golden Wok. But if you're in the area, you can definitely get a good meal there.
