What's all the fuss about Golden Bay Restaurant? Travelling far would mean that the food is really good so I was excited to taste how good it was. The restaurant is situated along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay City and just near SM Mall of Asia.
This Chinese restaurant was huge and reminded me of the resto called President that we used to go to in Binondo or most commonly known as Chinatown when we were just a kid.
The only difference is that Golden Bay glitters like gold while President is more of a classic and traditional resto. Another plus factor of Golden Bay is their mini aquarium which is not really on display only but you can get fresh catch from there and they cook it just the way you want it...poor underwater creatures...tsk tsk
I feel sorry for them but damn! i do love seafoods..LOL
This area of the restaurant is a big hit among the kids but make sure to accompany them because that area can get slippery.
Another thing that caught my eye is this nice display of poultry. You can see ducks, chicken, turkey? (i think im wrong with the last one...)
Now let's go with the food. We had dimsum galore because they had a 50% off promo on all dimsums. That's a great deal right?
We also ordered spicy tofu, an unusual dish with taro, noodles, fried rice, soup and more! No complains about the food cos its really authentic Chinese not like Chowking or any cheap Chinese restos.
Sorry for the pics because my new phone's cam sucks! my nokia's 1.3 mp is clearer than my 3mp phone. oh man!
Of course after a meal would be a nice cup of tea..not the sugary ones or cold ones...authentic herbal chinese tea!
Maybe this is one reason why most Chinese are skinny. I rarely see an obese Chinese unlike in the US. Maybe I should drink herbal tea more to digest the food faster and cleanse my body. Hmmm.
Had a great time at Golden Bay and food was superb! The people there don't also care if kids run around like it was a playground but all that running made me hungry again. LOL
If you are planning to have a wedding reception, family dinner or simply want to experience eating in China cos you dont have enough money to fly there...then make sure to check out Golden Bay restaurant

We returned to Golden Bay Restaurant last Mother's Day 2012 and was lucky to get reservations on the 2nd floor. The place looks grand and spacious unlike the ground level with huge chandeliers on top. The table setup was typical Chinese and being there reminded me of a wedding reception.
We ordered dimsums again and they all tasted great including the wrapped rice
And for dessert...mango with small sago (pearls) and the siopao-like sweet dough with mango surprise inside...which is a great way to end a meal!
Another thing I consider in a restaurant is the restroom and Golden Bay's ladies room is clean, spacious, has soap and toilet paper...perfect!
It is rare for me not to complain in a restaurant and with all the dishes that we ordered, I got nothing bad to say about them because they are really good. Oh yeah, my kid enjoyed riding the elevator since there are 3 floors at the Golden Bay, running around since the restaurant is huge and talking to the fish at the aquarium. Kids, moms and even grandmas enjoyed dining at Golden Bay so Mother's Day was a real success!
