We discovered Golden Dynasty back when we lived in the dorms at SOSC (now SOU). When you are a student living on a tight budget you learn to stretch food dollars even when you splurge and eat out and Golden Dynasty certainly filled that goal. They serve huge plates full of food, great for sharing when you are in a larger party. Aside from being generous with portions, the food is really tasty. We like their chicken fried rice and mar far chicken. Price-wise, this can be an expensive treat, but if you look at ways to cut costs (drink water instead of soda, share portions with family or friends), if can be affordable.
I'm not sure how many years they have been in business, but I have lived in Ashland for about 15 years now and they were operating when I arrived. This is one of the restaurants we take family to when they visit us.
