Best service I'd had in a while
I went to Golden Temple for dinner. The cocktail list was amazing!! The service was impeccable - in addition to the excellent waiter who have us extra bon bons so that everyone could try each flavor, the manager came by to greet us. Dessert was great and so was the appetizer. The only reason that I did not grant five stars overall is that the entree was somewhat anticlimactic. Although it was tasty, it was not as super as the test of the experience led me to expect. Maybe I just chose the wrong meal (Cabernet steak). I would definitely go back to try the appetizer and tiramisu again (with a different entree) and to have another raspberry margarita.

I knew we were going to have a delicious meal from the reviews on Golden Temple but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and hospitality being exceptional as well. Whether you are here for the formal dining room or a more casual meal in the lounge - this place does not disappoint!

Great service at a very classy
Great service at a very classy restaurant. Server was very kind and kept checking up on us nicely. Manager came up to our table to thank us for using OpenTable and participating in Restaurant Week and gave us his card. Would recommend for nice dates, small groups, and college students (especially with parents).

Great Food, Great Value.
Went with my youngest (11) after a game at Fenway. Nice neighborhood and easy access via the T. Seated promptly by courteous host. Not too busy, but we arrived at 5:30 PM. Food was excellent. From appetizers to main courses all food was freshly prepared and tasted superb. Service was quick, but timed well between apps and main course. Waitress was very attentive and very friendly. Highly recommend if you want FRESHLY MADE items.

I have always been a fan of the Golden Temple. My boyfriend and I always go there whenever we get the chance. I just recently celebrated my birthday there with a group of friends that have never been there before and they say that I have ruined Chinese for them because they won't be able to have it from any where else! Prices are fair and the drinks are absolutely wonderful. They even stuff they're crab ran goons full of real crab! By far my favorite restaurant!

Another delicious perfect experience! We are huge fans of this place. Although pricey for Chinese it is very good and well worth it. The service is always good. The manager Eddie came over again (we also met him last time) and said hello. It was a very nice touch. We will definitely be back and recommend to all.

Good food - interesting ambiance
Had dinner here with friends on a Saturday night. Every dish we ordered was well prepared and delicious. The chicken wing appetizer is highly recommended! The waiter was attentive and friendly and the general manager checked in with us as well. The E-room bar/lounge/dance floor provided an interesting and unexpected element to the night. You have to see it for yourself!

Golden Temple Ribs were excellent! Also enjoyed the Beijing Duck, Lobster Cantonese, Golden Cloud Noodles, Brussel Sprouts, Fried Brown Rice. Great Stoli Doli and Golden Temple Mai Tai.
We got complimentary Champagne and a E room beer pilsner wraped in a gift box for Fathers Day.
Great experience for Fathers Day.

Second Visit Even Better Than First
Took whole family for lunch, previously went with my son for dinner. Manager Ed Yue welcomed us most cordially, and made certain we were well taken care of by staff. Server was friendly and efficient. Food arrived very quickly (10 minutes) and was hot, fresh, and delicious. All were filled to the brim, when Mr. Yue came over with "bon bons" for dessert. We still found room for them, and they were FANTASTIC! We love to try different places to eat when in Boston, but when we are in Brookline we will make sure to have lunch or dinner at Golden Temple.

Wonderful dining experience
I have been to Golden Temple several times and it consistently delivers great food and service. GT will continue to be a real choice in the top 10 restaurants for dining.

Wonderful food and fantastic service. Will go regularly.

I just love this restaurant.
I just love this restaurant. The main thing I love is the drink selection. Their food is traditional Chinese, but at a higher quality than what you might find at other restaurants in the area. You simply can't go wrong.

GOOD CHINESE FOOD
The Golden Temple is great place to go with a group of people. The idea is to order family style, where you can try out different dishes and share them. The menu is a little pricey for Chinese but the food is good, not overly salty . It is a nice place to go for Chinese, the ambience is good, a tad too dark though.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently good food and service.
I have been many times, and always enjoy the food and the service. I had the black bean chilean sea bass this time, and thought it was good but not great. I was expecting a whole fish, but instead got filet chunks. There are other things that I like better on their menu. The Bejing Duck, for example, is one of the best that I have ever had. Overall, this is still one of my favorite chinese restaurants. It is always spotless, and the service is excellent.

It was not your tyipcal Chinese Restaurant, you could tell the food was made to order and as a person with allerigies they were able to accommodate my every request! My meal and my friends meals were delicious, and full of flavor! We will definitely be back again.

Great food and drink!!
This s a great late night (9 pm reservation) find. The food was fresh and the servers were attentive to all of our needs. The manager even came by to say hello and make sure we were enjoying our dining experience. This was a nice touch to a fun impromptu dinner reservation. Thank you, Golden Temple!!

Not your average Chinese restaurant
Not your average Chinese restaurant, and both quality (great ingredients and sauces) and price (more expensive than your average Chinese takeout) reflect that. It is worth it in my opinion, but just know that going in. There was a nice seating area outside but it was a bit too cold to try it when we were there.

Eddie was great!
Eddie, the manager, made sure we were well taken care of! The egg rolls were not good and he took off our 2 scorpion bowls. It was amazing food though!

25 Years at the "Temple!"
We raised our kids at Golden Temple. They live all over the U.S. and when back home.... First stop, GOLDEN TEMPLE!!!

Golden Temple was good!
Our party of 4 was seated immediately in a good-sized booth. Drinks and appetizers came within a reasonable period of time and the sampler plate was ample (good thing we were hungry!). The entree plates were quite large and there was plenty of food on your plate--fresh and served at the right temperature. Waiters were attentive with the water and checking in to take away empty plates and seeing if we needed anything else. The menu included Thai food as well as Chinese so I ordered a pad thai noodle dish with chicken, shrimp, mushrooms and broccoli that was very tasty. Golden Temple is located on Beacon Street in Boston and valet parking is available (but cash is asked for before you enter the restaurant). All in all, Golden Temple rocked!

Outstanding Chinese cuisine
Presentation of each of the dishes we ordered was unique and delightful. The food was outstanding, among the best Chinese restaurants we have ever had the pleasure of dining in.

This place deserves all the success that it has.

Hmm Golden temple
Went to golden temple on Friday. It was good. Loves the service an the atmosphere. General Gso was great. However the tofu was a little iffy but it wasn't bad. Drinks were great. Brown rice was different than what I'm used to but nice.
Lettuce wraps was good as well.

Great Dining Experience
The food and service were outstanding. The menu provide a wide variety of choices that should please all taste. The option of half or full size dishes is a great way to allow one to try many different things, yet not waste food. The staff was attentive and responded quickly to all requests. One can be assured of a good dining experience.
