Being in the semiconductor equipment business for more than fifteen years, I've had my share of delightful business lunches and dinners here in the Bay Area. However, the one I enjoyed a week and a half ago at Golden Sun Palace in Milpitas was easily the best of the bunch.
Although it certainly helped to have been hosted by a native of Hong Kong, I felt like one could have picked anything swimming in their tanks and wouldn't miss.
We ate their specialty seafood dishes, which included crab, rock cod ("hong long" or "red dragon") and lobster.
The crab and lobster were both sweet and cooked to perfection. I left the restaurant almost sad because I knew it would be a while before my busy personal life would allow me another chance at such a feast.
I especially appreciated how the staff at Golden Sun Palace went out of their way to make the meal easy and enjoyable. They constantly refreshed our plates, taking shells away. Also, in the photo below you'll notice how the crab legs are cracked in such a way one can easily use a utensil to push out the meat, eliminating the need for wrestling with a crab cracker.
I was told that Golden Sun Palace has been terrific for at least the past five or six years. They changed ownership about six months ago, but the food remains outstanding. We ate here on a Thursday and the restaurant was only about half full. So, if you have the time for it, come here on a weeknight and enjoy a seafood feast that's top of the line. They'll fit you in!
