Celia Hu and her daughter-in-law Sharon at the newly re-modeled Golden International Restaurant on the Sterling Highway.
For some twenty three years lovers of Asian cuisine have enjoyed dining at the Golden International Restaurant just a little north of Soldotna on the Sterling Highway. Since 1984 Thomas and Celia Hu have raised their family while offering tantalizing Asian Cuisine Dishes at the Golden International. Last week the Hu’s celebrated a Grand Re-Opening and major make over of their family restaurant, “The people of this community have been so nice to us over the years and we felt it was time to repay them by remodeling our restaurant and making it more comfortable for them while maintaining the same high quality food and menu selections,” said Celia Hu.

The Hu’s also took the opportunity of their re-opening to introduce the newest member of their team; featured Chef to the Hollywood Stars, James Fan from Beverly Hills, California. “We are very fortunate to know James and have him as part of our team. He has lots of cooking experience,” said Hu. Chef Fan says he has been creating Asian cuisine for more than 35 years and that coming to Alaska has been a dream of his, but he is still adjusting to differences between Beverly Hills and Soldotna, “The town is much smaller and not so much traffic. I’m still getting accustomed to the cool weather, but for many years it has been my dream to come to Alaska and catch my own salmon, and now I’m here and it is very exciting for me. My favorite dishes to make are seafood and beef tenderloin dishes,” said Fan.
Golden International executive chef Thomas Hu is very happy with the new more tranquil, comfortable surroundings and is looking forward to making your future dining the ultimate experience. The Golden International will also be offering new Fusion dishes as well as traditional favorites featuring tantalizing Asian cuisine. Asian ingredients in general and Chinese recipes in particular are frequently merged with other cuisines in Fusion dishes. The Golden International restaurant is open seven days a week noon to 3:00pm for lunch and 4:30pm 9:30pm for dinner. For reservations call 262-7862.
