Golden Palace is fairly new and reFRESHing Vietnamese and Chinese restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and especially CLEAN. The menu hits some of the main popular food items traditionally found in Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants. The springs rolls are spectacular (fresh vegetables, large fresh shrimp and thick sweet peanut sauce). The traditional Vietnamese soup, Pho, is very aromatic and light tasting with freshly sliced beef. I have eaten Vietnamese in Paris-France, Orlando, Gainesville, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Florida, Houston, Austin, Boston, Manhattan, Washington D.C. and would highly recommend Golden Palace. As an individual with a diverse heritage of being half Vietnamese and raised on both southern American cuisine and Vietnamese cuisine, I eat Vietnamese food whenever I get the chance in new cities. I have also worked at 2 Vietnamese restaurants during college. With an experienced perspective and palette, I can enthusiastically recommend Golden Palace under the current ownership. They have a comfortable atmosphere with friendly owners offering progressive amenities such as wi-fi access and widescreen flat panel entertainment and a new menu item, Boba Tea.\r
I have also eaten at the only other Vietnamese restaurant in Pensacola several times only because there were no other options at the time, and always have been disappointed. The food there is bland and watered down in flavor and in substance (especially the peanut sauce).\r
As for the other review. No comment necessary. Ignorance speaks for itself.\r
