Golden Garlic, a Chinese restaurant in San Jose, California,  The restaurant is clean, with friendly staff, and good atmosphere.  On weekends, it gets busy.  The food is good, full of flavor.  Most of the dishes are spicy, so if you are into spicy food, this is a great place, if not, there are still some non-spicy dishes, but the major portion of the menu is out of the questions.

Most people come to Golden Garlic for the Golden Garlic Beef.  Tender seasoned beef cubes with more garlic then you can imagine.  The garlic flavors are not overpowering, and the spices on the beef makes this one of their signature dishes.  Some of the spicy dishes are mouth numbing spicy, and some are sweet spice.  The pork belly with chili oil is a little sweet and spicy and the thinly cut slices makes a great accompaniment to the steamed rice.

Non-Spicy dishes, like the fish ball with tomato sauce comes in a sweet sauce, pork stomach with cilantro, and the sour cabbage soup with fish are good choices as well.  The prices however have been steadily increasing, and the portion size have been getting smaller.  The Golden Garlic Beef plating has even changed to a smaller place and reduced size since the opening of the restaurant, and price has increase.

Expect anywhere from $8.00 to $15.00 a dish.
