I have been to maybe 150 Vietnamese/Thai places and this has GOT TO BE the top 3. Everything was fresh as hell and the rice noodles we freshly cooked and not stuck in a huge ball in the bottom of the bowl like every other place. Top 3 out of 150. Price was awesome as well. F**king go here. You won't regret it because you'll return the next time you're around.
Great place to eat. Staff was really friendly. We had the pho and sticky rice. The mango passion fruit lemonade was so good.
No need to go to CA anymore! The chicken/lamb over rice is just as good. I've tried all the other ones here in la and Saigon Beach Restaurant is the only one that comes within range. Order online and get a discount off your order. The only caveat is that it's only served 7-9 but it's worth the limited time frame. Take heed to the spice level of the red sauce though it is quite literally fire.
Awesome people and restaurant! The food is packaged so that you can take it to the beach. Reasonably priced and the pork belly sliders melt in your mouth. Would definitely come back again!
Awesome staff,great food; you can take the food to go to the beach! The pork belly sliders melt in your mouth and the flavor is delicious. Will come back again!

This place is awesome. The customer service is great and it's family-run; so there is a strong connection among the employees that provides a welcoming atmosphere. The food selection ranges from Vietnamese to popular Chinese dishes, along with a few Korean style plates as well. I often recommend this place to friends and I recommend it to whoever reads this review as well.
This place is quite fantastic. Well priced good food and large dishes make for a must have Irvine experience.
Fast and friendly service. Very flavorful pho. Had combination and it was full of delicious meats. Vietnamese ice coffee was also very good. I have gotten it at several similar restaurants but this was hands down the best I have had - very good strong tasting coffee.
Really good Thai food finally found a great place that's open most of the day . I don't know how I didn't find this place earlier.
We love the spring rolls & vege fried rice.

The food is strictly Chinese American, not "real Chinese", IMHO. But, it's good as far as Chinese American food goes. The dishes have their own distinct taste and flavor (as opposed to all tasting vaguely the same), and are well seasoned. There were some Asian diners there, so that's not a bad sign, albeit they were with non-Asian companions.
We read the reviews and decided to try it... we are not from here, so we had no idea. Everything we ordered was amazing! The best Chinese food we have EVER HAD! The food was excellent, the service was excellent, everyone was incredibly friendly, we even got a hug from the super sweet lady at the front desk!!! We are a family of five and ordered 5 dishes to share, we ended up having to take a lot home, the portions are very generous. We will definitely come back here when we are in the area again!
Have been going here for 10 years . Love eating here. This is the only "Authentic" Chinese cooking. I grew up eating in ChinaTown . N.Y.C. Eating at Golden Dragon is always a family loved experience.
Honey Walnut Shrimp is to die for!! Family Fried Bean Curd is awesome!! And while you're at it, have a Mai Tai. 3 generations of our family have been going here. And Kee is the cutest and sweetest lady!! This place is still around because of her!!
Everything is fantastic. One of the best Chinese restaurants I've ever eaten at. Been eating here for 35 years - never disappointed.

Absolutely love this place! Was so excited when I found out they opened a place closer to me. The food and service is always great but not so much the long waits. My family and I are always planning times to go early or reserve so we don't have this problem.
The food here is amazing! Although the wait was quite long, the food and the staff made up for it. I would recommend this place if you are willing to enjoy quality food with a wonderful atmosphere and caring staff. Will definitely come back time after time!...
Awesome food and great service. There's always a wait during regular lunch/dinner time, but with this location being in the mall, you can check in first, go shopping and they'll text you when your table is ready. Be prepared to still wait another 10 minutes or so after that. But food here is worth the wait!!
1 1/2 hour to wait to be seated. dumplings were delicious. the staff were on their toes, working hard, serving many people. great customer service. i didnt like the waiting ,it was way too long. prices is bit high. but went home very full&less money. everyone in my party was very happy. the order to go, was very impressive, also. very detailed.
The flavour profiles of the food here is exceptional. Their Noodles in spicy sauce is something to definitely try. Of course it is known for its legendary Dumplings. Chris/Christopher was very friendly, attentive, and had the greatest recommendation. Amazing ambience.

This place gives you so much food for what you are paying and has fantastic food. Really liked the eggplant dish and eggrolls.
Wow, this was incredible food. I stopped by in a pinch because everything else was closed and was blown away by the food. It's a little strip mall joint, but has to be the best shrimp fried rice I've ever had.
Literally mom and pop spot. Everything ive ever tried here is really good.
hubby and i were in the mood for chinese food and wanted something a little better than panda express. we ended up at beijing wok & grill in fountain valley. we ordered the boiled pork and shrimp dumplings, broccoli with beef and shanghai noodles. the dumplings were amazing! they come six to an order, but i think we're gonna have to order two next time. LOL the broccoli with beef was very good as well. the broccoli was nicely cooked, which is really important to the dish (no limp broccoli!). the shanghai noodles were VERY good. i love a thinner, crispier noodle. these did not disappoint. so glad we found this place!
Very friendly, great food sweet service😉
