Never had a bad experience there & love their food. If the service was ever off, I would still go for the food.

There was so much bashing - whether deserved or not - on the first Golden Styx thread, that I wanted to start a more positive thread on this wonderful restaurant.

We showed up without much warning needing a table for 10 last week. The food was truly incredible and the wait staff so efficient and considerate that I was floored since I had read such negative things previously.

So, COME AND GET IT!

I've been in several times (always for take-out, haven't been able to have a sit-down meal there yet), and I have not once experienced the service issues that others have documented. Maybe I'm lucky, I don't know -- but both the food and service has been good there for me.

I took my son and his fiance there last weekend and we loved the food and the waitress was awesome. She was the only one waitressing that night and worked her butt off. I have to be honest, the service was slow but when she was at our table she gave us her undivided attention. She also cut up jokes with my son's fiance and she had us cracking up!! The food was great too. WE will definetly go back there and hopefully, we'll have the same waitress.

That's nice that you want to have a 'positive only' thread, but this is a forum to discuss the merits of a restaurant...both good and bad.

I have been to Golden Stix several times. No visit was without problems. I get take out only. I usually order a good 20+ minutes in advance. So far, I've had to wait at least a few minutes every time I arrive. A couple times it was over 15 minutes. The folks are pleasant enough, if not a little frayed at times.

The food, well, as I've always said, fresh veggies, but overall lacks flavor. Fairly bland. Some of the meat dishes had meats I could not identify. Extra chewy. Most times a chicken dish was ordered it was primarily thigh meat. Soups and appetizers are the usual fare found at 90% of the chinese places in town. At least tasted that way.

Overall, I think they're the best option up here, but not all that great. At times I thought the take out from Safeway was better. No kidding.

:exactly: I couldn't have said it better myself - some reviews will be good and others.............not so good.

I agree and my experiences have been the same only I've had to wait 45 minutes for a take out order AFTER I got there........not once but twice. Sounds as though things haven't improved much.

I may try it again, but doubtful.

Now that is an opinion that I can definitely disagree with. I guess to each their own -- but I certainly rate Stix' takeout way higher than Safeway's! And also definitely higher than the other Chinese restaurants in the Conifer to Bailey corridor. (I'll grant you, that is probably damning with faint praise!)

I'm not saying that's a good thing. But I was surprised. Take the taste test for yourself. You may find some of the Safeway offerings (when fresh) as good or better. Some not. Ok. Many are not.

We have had nothing but good luck with Golden Stix. Whether we did sit down or take out. The service has always been friendly and efficient and the take out has never taken more that 15 min and usually less. And we have never called ahead, just walked in.
