Seventh Decade of Great Chinese Food

The original Golden Gate Restaurant was established in 1954 by George Fong, near the four-corners in downtown Whitby, on Brock Street at Dundas. Through hard work and commitment, George created a legacy that still exists today. His three sons, Danny, Ming (Eddy) and Bill Fong, along with his daughter-in-law, Rebecca Fong, followed George’s footsteps and became the next generation owner-managers. The four of them were life-long dedicated restaurateurs.

In 1989, they established the Golden Gate Buffet and Takeout Restaurant at the Five Points Mall in Oshawa, at Taunton and Ritson Roads. The Restaurant grew in popularity and became a favourite in the community. The Golden Gate has received numerous Readers Choice Awards for its excellence. We thank our customers for their loyal support.

GOLDEN GATE 2017In 2009, Ming (Eddy) Fong was the last brother to finally retire. He worked well into his seventies because of his great passion for the business.

In mid-2017, the lease for Golden Gate was terminated by the landlord for demolition of Five Points Mall, to revert back to an open-air shopping centre, as it was thirty years earlier.

In 2018, the Golden Gate Eatery & Takeout launched with a Quick Casual Dining format at Kingsway Village Shopping Centre, King Street East and Townline Road, with lower prices, while keeping the same signature great taste.

Today the restaurant is family-owned and managed by Pearl Lem, with Rebecca Fong by her side. Bill Lem and Jenny Lin serves as Customer Service Managers. As managers, the team guides all employees to treat customers like they are family. They carry on the vision of what made Golden Gate a great restaurant for six decades.

We look forward to serving you for your dining pleasures and takeout foods for another sixty years!
