I really wanted to like Golden Pond, but my meal, [take-out] Orange Beef, was so overcooked that half of the serving was inedible. "Beef tough as shoe leather" comes to mind as a description. The larger pieces were barely edible and the taste was very good, the quantity was enough for 2, the online ordering was great, and the food was on-time and pick-up was courteous. But if I were eating in, I would have sent the meal back to the kitchen; I wasn't about to drive back. I did not expect prime quality beef from Chinese take-out, but I did expect more. I also had won ton soup, which had lots of won tons and was OK, but on the "strong" side; I prefer delicate won ton soup; that's my choice.
There are enough good things about Golden Pond that I may give them another chance. 1 Star for the entree, 5 Stars for everything else.
