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 Takout Restaurant at the Five Points Mall, at Ritson and Taunton Roads. At the time, the all-you-can-eat concept buffet was an innovation to Oshawa and the Durham Region.

The Buffet grew in popularity and became a favourite in the community. The Golden Gate Buffet Restaurant has received numerous Readers Choice Awards for its excellence. We thank our customers for their loyal support.


Voted BEST in Class Year after Year; Winner in Many Categories

In 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.

Today, the restaurant is family-owned and continues to be managed by Rebecca Fong, with Pearl Lem by her side. As managers, they guide 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 buffet pleasures and takeout foods for another sixty years!
