Sun - Thu 5:00PM - 5:30PM
Parking: valet for$11. There are metered parking available but there are 5 busy restaurants competing for the same parking spots. Best bet is to valet on a weekend.
Food: we enjoyed all the dishes we ordered.
Service: very good, especially since the restaurant was fully booked on this Saturday evening at 8 pm.
Overall: we would return again. Good idea to make a reservation. We were there on a Saturday evening and they were completely booked. Additionally, the bar side was packed.
The service was not what I remember, I have been going to this restaurant since I was 6 or 7 so over 30 years.. The staff seem to busy to pay attention to their tables, had to wait for staff once seated. After ordering and receiving food, staff did not come back to see if everything was ok. Then had to wait for table to be cleared and get the check. Ultimately staff seem to be covering more than what they can handle.
It was a fun place to celebrate my sons birthday. Great drinks and food. It was a bit pricey. Looking forward to returning to celebrate again soon.
Without a doubt, the Golden Temple is the best restaurant on the planet . By every measure , you can't beat this place. And I'm not just talking Chinese food , which is their specialty and which they prepare to perfection. I'm talking of culinary delights beyond the wildest dreams I've dined there many times over the years, and they keep outdoing themselves. The Golden Temple always exceeds expectations!
Basically, the food was bland. It tasted like they forgot to season it. Also, on a Friday night prime time the restaurant was only about 20% full. I went because of the reviews, which in my experience have been reliable. Not this time.
This time disappointing. I have been coming her for a couple of years and always had fantastic food. A late lunch this week and the sweet and sour chicken was so tough and dry not worth eating. Fried Rice a little dry. I will go back again because 1 out of 100 is not bad. Still think they have some of the best food in town and worth a visit.
A great gem for good Chinese, our server was hilarious good guys night out, and about around the town. Will return thank you!
Great meal. Last minute decision and great choice.
A great place with good food and good service. The food always comes out hot! We love the place.
Always consistently the best food, drink, atmosphere and service!
Golden Temple is the best Chinese food around. The food is fresh, healthy and they are always coming out with great new dishes.
Try the margaritas!!!
Excellent food and good service..
Highly recommend !!
Alcoholic Drinks are very pricey though..
Parking is tight and you'll most likely have to valet, if you don't know the area or willing to walk.
Make sure the Sox game isn't getting out as you're heading in or you'll be in traffic..
In conclusion the food really is excellent!!!
Was able to sit outside on sidewalk with my dog and husband.
Mai Tais (the Golden Temple Mai Tais) are the best.
Great Peking duck and egg rolls.
My husband loves this place, the kind of Chinese food he grew up with but they do have more inventive entrees and appetizers
Thought we would try a different Chinese restaurant for my son's 10th birthday. The Golden Temple was close by with reasonable ratings. However, I found the value/price ratio to be a bit low. Higher than usual price for weirdly sweet hot & sour soup ($6) , pot stickers (6 little dumplings for $7), although the orders of brown and white rice were quite large. I didn't notice any great quality here. Overall, an average, if slightly higher priced restaurant.
Always excellent as usual. One of our favorites places to go. Parking can be a problem.
Hadn't been to Golden Temple in a good while but really enjoyed the food and beverages, the blue Hawaiian was one outstanding drink loved it lots. Our server was attentive and same with the others around they were ready to help when needed. Loved the scallion pancakes, Brussels sprouts with chicken too.
Great food, our server was fantastic. DJ was a great bonus and actually played great music for some fun dancing to top off the night.
I was totally disappointed in the Golden Temple. I have wonderful memories of going there when I lived in the area. It has been many years since my last visit and I was looking forward to finally get back here to eat their wonderful food. What a let down. The wait staff was slow and not very knowledgeable about the food. The food itself was the worst I've had in years. All the dishes were cold and so salty one could barely consume the food. The only reason I did not leave was because my dearest friends were visiting from Florida and had been looking forward to going there. The only good thing I can say about The Golden Temple is they didn't rush us out. But then, there was hardly any diners in the dining room which was very telling. I will never go back there again.
This restaurant is always good. Going early on a Friday is the perfect time to enjoy
Great food great service
They did a really nice Mother's Day Dinner! They had a single red rose on the table for every Mom, nice touch! They even sent each guest home with a separate free dessert!
We had never been here before and thought we would have a fairly quiet Chinese dinner. The main dining room seemed very nice but we were seated in the bar/party area. There were two large parties one of which was an actual party (balloons, cake, etc ). The music was pretty loud as well. There were only two waiters for the whole room. Not the quiet dinner we expected. We were entertaining my daughter's friends and wanted to be able to talk easily. Moral to the story, make sure you are seated in the main dining room. It would probably have been a much different experience.
Part of our ribs came out so burnt you couldn't eat them - by the time our server came - and by the time the new ribs were delivered - we were finished -- so sad because I usually love the ribs
I have been going to this restaurant for as long as I can remember. The food is always great!
The interior is bizarre. Lots of exaggerated architectural elements. Seating is not comfortable because the booths are too narrow. No place for your knees and feet. I wouldn't go here to impress a date. It is more of a kitschy night out at an old-school Chinese restaurant. The food was better than average.
Amazing as always. Never a disappointment Golden Temple
Too busy on a Saturday night bad service and food too salty. Have been there before for lunch and had better food
When large party in house service is not good
The mai tai's were better than the food
I love Golden Temple! Amazing Staff, Bartenders, Servers, etc. Fabulous food and amazing drinks. I feel like Golden Temple is my home away from home.
Fabulous food. Great place for a celebration!! The wait staff are friendly and attentive, as well as accommodating. Try the pickled vegetables and roasted Brussels sprouts for a great way to balance out the sweet or spicy dishes.
Food is fabulous and the staff is great! This is our go to Chinese food restaurant!
Went with a party of 14. Food was great and service was prompt.
We have been going to Golden Table for 30 years and the most amazing point is that the high quality of their food has never changed.
Great variety- you have to try the Golden Temple ribs - they are great.
Very expensive for Chinese food. Food tasted great but was a small portion which isn't typical for Chinese American restaurants
The food is always great. I have been eating at Golden Temple for decades.
I have been going to Golden Temple for years; love it! From the waitstaff to the bartenders to the cooks, always awesome!❤
always great as usual. We have been going for many years and will continue to do so
Staff weren't very friendly. Not busy as it was a Wednesday but definitely felt that it was a functional order the food, put it on the table, no friendliness, done and dusted way of dealing with customers. We thought the food was just ok but the roasted Brussels were not roasted. Felt like they were part boiled and then turned in a wok for a few seconds. Not very good.
Great valentine day experience
