All-you-can-eat Chinese with 6-7 vegan dishes

Golden Palace is an all you can eat buffet, about $7 during dinner-time and $6 at lunch. Students are given a 10% discount with ID. The food is the same throughout the day.

Vegans will find Sesame Tofu as a good main dish, along with Vegetable Lo Mein, Garlic String Beans, Sweet and Sour Mushrooms, and General Tso's potatoes for sides.

They also have some fruit and Chinese "Donuts" - which are allegedly vegan - for desert.

If you don't have time to sit down, you can get a to-go container and get food to go for $6 a pound.

They also have a menu you can order off of, mainly for take-out, with the usual Chinese fast-food fare.

My husband and I LOVE this place! I have never been disappointed by the food or the services. The sesame tofu and the general tso's potatoes are my favorite things on the buffet.

Expect to get that post-Chinese-buffet-guilt feeling after eating here. You know, that "I didn't just force-feed myself seven plates of THAT, did I?" feeling.

The food here is about as good as you could ask for. When the Sesame Tofu is fresh and hot, it is quite good. Sometimes, there will be just a half-scoop of very old, crusty tofu left and the owners will walk by, stir it, but for some reason choose NOT to refill the pan. Eventually I started getting bold and asking them to please bring out more tofu, and they didn't seem too offended. Also, if you eat there enough, as I did one year as a poor college student living kitchenless in a dorm, they'll start to recognize your face and start cooking tofu as soon as you walk in the door.

The fried mushrooms are supposedly vegan, as are the chinese donuts. You decide if you want to believe them.

For the price, this place a decent deal, since it's all you can eat - I would usually eat enough tofu alone to justify the $7. That said, I haven't eaten there in at least 12 months, and I think my digestive tract is thankful for that.

Golden Palace is on Forbes Ave, near the intersection with Meyran. It is next to a SuperCuts and the Upstage/Club Laga.

Any bus that goes down 5th or Forbes through Oakland can drop you off within 2 blocks - from Downtown, all the 61 busses will drop you off across the street.

Any of the 61s or 71s, plus the 54C, 67A, 67J, 67F, 500, and 501 are some of the busses that can take you to the corner of Forbes and Meyran or 5th and Meyran.
