Golden Key Chinese Restaurant: Norristown Chinese Cuisine

August 23, 2016 2:35 pm

It can be really hard to judge a Chinese restaurant from the outside – some of the least impressive visually are the ones that knock out the most delicious and authentic meals. Norristown’s Golden Key is a perfect example – it doesn’t look like much, nestled in a small space in Norristown, but the food is exceptional. The restaurant has been in business since 1989, winning the praise of generations of residents. The menu is full of the traditional offerings, with some favorites being the sesame chicken, which is a perfect combination of sweet and savory, as well as the tender pepper beef. Egg rolls are also quite good, fried to toothsome deliciousness. It’s also possible to just make a meal out of appetizers, with the scallion pancakes and wonton soup very popular. Prices are incredibly reasonable, especially for the lunch specials.
