Notes: Sister restaurant to Golden Era in the Tenderloin and Golden Lotus in Oakland. Formally called Golden Era 2. Space and menu are smaller. Appetizers, soups, entrees galore. Many dishes have faux meats, but can also find tofu & veggie selections too. Try the Caramelized Chicken or the Teriyaki Salmon. Nearly everything is vegan except for a couple of drinks and the flan. Vegan cake from Black China Bakery available for dessert.

4.5 out of 5 stars I had an excellent lunch here today with my omnivore father. He loved the faux chicken special, and I liked my noodles a lot too. He's ready to go back for more! The manager/host was very friendly; service was a little off today. If you like Golden Era or Golden Lotus you will be happy here too. greg

4.5 out of 5 stars I am never tired of the same entrees, potato curry, "lamb" clay pot, Indian fried rice. I always get large portions. Maybe because they know I bring new customers in all the time. If doing a takeout, they might let you use your own clean containers. They are always friendly towards me. The older waitress is a bit shy, but she's never rude to me. They passed 100% City's Health Inspection. sunny

5 out of 5 stars I could live on the pho and fresh spring rolls. When I lived down the street from this place, I practically did. Everything is excellent here and the service is very friendly. I highly recommend the drum sticks, fried "prawns", Vietnamese crepe (especially when paired with the "chicken" and potato curry) and the chow fun. Pook

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyed dining here. Food was good, served quickly. Friendly service (no communication or language issues, good English). Bonus: even on chilly winter nite, it was pleasantly warm inside with good food. Very similar food to Golden Era. tammy

3 out of 5 stars Food was good but not great. Service was not too great. I'd recommend this place if you're hungry and happen to be in the area, but if you're willing to travel go somewhere else (Herbivore, Cha-Ya, Maggie Mudd for lunch). xbillyx
