Overall, we had an excellent meal. I know that the restaurant had been there forever, but this was our first time. With so many new restaurants in the area, we just hadn't stopped into Golden Temple. Now wish we had done so earlier! The vegetable tempura was excellent (crisp and not greasy). The chicken wings were also good.
Lunch was good but not as well seasoned as usual. Still one of my favorites
Get a drink from their cocktail menu. All are great. And the chicken wings are delicious. The chicken fingers are great too
The Beijing duck was excellent, but the usually excellent General Gao's chicken was a overdone and dry. I mentioned this to the waiter and he immediately removed from our bill without my having to ask. As always, the Stoli Doli's were excellent.
Food came to quick and cold, And did not bring all the food at the same time. It’s a bit pricey for the value of the food. The only good things was nice and quiet. I personally won’t go there again.
This is, and has always been the best Chinese food on the planet. The quality is always top shelf and consistently fabulous. You won’t find better!
The food was delicious. It was my friend's birthday, and I mentioned it briefly when I arrived, and they brought a fantastic cake with a candle in it. Stoli Doli cocktail also perfect.
They advertise a gluten-free menu. They DO NOT have a gluten-free menu. I’m not sure anyone knows what gluten is or thinks about allergy sensitivity, cross-contamination, etc. Do not eat there if you have any food sensitivities, it is dangerous and they lied about their expertise here.
Having been here last 15 years ago, the place has gone way downhill. It’s decrepit and poorly maintained. The waitstaff is slow and difficult to communicate with. The menu is long and confusing. They need to shut the place and update their menu, decor, and everything else about their business if they want to continue to serve food to people. It’s not working.
The second star is solely because they took one of the dishes that no one touched because it was not what we were expecting off our bill without my asking.
The appetizers all came out hot and fresh. However, I was a bit disappointed that I wanted Meat Wor Bar and it was not on the menu. The bartender ordered it for me but put it under Seafood Wor Bar, which was double the price. The dish was not fresh and had way to much brown sauce usually the dish is very light and delicious. Other than that everything else was great.
I always love this place. Since we started booking through open table we have come to love this restaurant. One hiccup this tome. We had later reservations and when we go there no one came to the desk for a good 5 minutes. We went into the bar because there were seats available. We decided to eat there. Bartender was fantastic and more than accommodating. His nAme was Andy he made the night worth sitting at the bar. Service and food fantastic
10:15PM Late Night Dinner, a good choice but this night was not the usual for Golden Temple.
We have been coming here for years but never have dined after 9PM.
Returning to town, hungry , we headed to Golden Temple. The DJ side bar was hopping and sound blasting, fortunately the dining side was far enough away to have a meal in a quieter space.
Although I made a reservation , I stood at the host/hostess desk upon entering for 10 min without anyone attending to me. I paced back and forth in view of the staff who was in an isolated area preparing greens no one asked if they could help. Finally My husband joined me after parking the car, and we sat down at a near empty dining area.only one another booth was
More time to wait for a waiter....friendly waiter arrived, with a smile.
Wrong order received but happily exchanged
Vegetable Golden Cloud arrived with chicken, but we didn’t bother saying anything .
Great bone-in ribs, as always
We don’t know why the attention was off, why the order was not perfect but we can stilll say that this is a go to dining experience late night or regular hours. We stay committed as regular patrons.
Took my mother for Mother's Day as we have done several times in the past. Three times we ordered and were minutes later told the dishes weren't available. What we finally ordered was brought at different times so we couldn't begin eating together and so subpar and we didn't even eat most of it. Our waitress, while lovely and polite seemed out of her element and we had to repeatedly request things. Overall a terrible experience and complaint fest that got in the way of us just enjoying time with each other.
We were there for Mother's Day and had a very nice time. They staff gave all of the mothers a rose, which was a very sweet touch.
The consensus within out group was that the chicken fingers were absolutely delightful!!
I felt very rushed. Its like once we had our food, the servers boxed it and gave us the check. Not very nice
The food was fresh, brought to the table hot and haven't had better chinese food anywhere. Love this place overtime I come. The service is excellent. If you choose to visit the bar area, the bartenders are superb. Have to go A must Visit.
Absolutely fantastic tasting food and great price!
Decent food, but the server was rather stilted. He greeted us at the table with "What do you want to drink?" No "hello, how are you" or anything like that. While he did provide basic service, he was not friendly at all.
AMAZING service and food :D !!!
I enjoyed my visit here on Tuesday evening. Had a drink at the bar before sitting down for supper. Place was quite on Tuesday night. Service was good and food was tasty. Drinks are good but pricey.
Always enjoy going to Golden Temple. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff is always friendly and warm. One of the best spots in my neighborhood by far.
Great food and nice staff.
This place has been consistently good for years. Very accommodating to special requests and always fresh delicious food. They are my fave place for crab Rangoon but I have to say it seems to have a little less crab than the usual. Could be it was just this time. Hopefully that’s the case.
I’d recommend them no problem.
I’ve been coming here for many many years and it’s always been a favorite of mine for any occasion. I had a going away party here with about 50 people and great fun, food, drinks and dancing was had by everyone! It’s a great place to come during a holiday or snowstorm!
Food was cold
Good food. Shared with 6 others
I found the food not well prepared. The sauces were goopy and not well stirred into the food. The food came so quickly, it almost seemed not well cooked.
Golden Temple is a longtime favorite, but I think the quality has declined.
Always a blast going to Golden Temple with a group of friends. The service is always superb and quick; the food is always delicious; and the drinks are always strong (looking at you scorpion bowls)! Friday night DJ dancing at Golden Temple has been one of my favorite memories of living in Boston
Food was excellent and they surprised us with a delicious cake for my birthday!!!
I had wonderful service it was excellent the interior of the resturant is absolutely beautiful it's very cozy.
Food was not great and the drinks were overpriced.
We began with an order of egg rolls. They were hot with a crispy outside. Inside was veggies and pork. “He” had house special lo mein and thoroughly enjoyed it. The leftovers were still delicious a day and a half later. “She” ordered chicken chow foon but got beef. That could have been an issue for other people. In this case, it was not. It was delicious.
Two inedible dishes out three. Black bean sauce out of a vat. Tofu had bizarre texture. A disaster and we resolved never to come back.
Golden Temple always delivers on food quality and freshness. We got Golden Temple fried rice, Golden Temple Ribs and salt and pepper calamari. All were excellent, but prices are high. For 3 dishes and 2 drinks we paid $80 and left still feeling hungry. Also have to pay to park on street at meter or valet park. Good for a treat.
Went there for New Years Eve dinner. There was no mention of a “Special Menu” when they called to confirm the reservation but they made sure to tell me that there was a per person minimum. All the items on the menu (except for the appetizers) were not your typical run of the mill, simple items that most people like. And they were totally unwilling to accommodate and special requests and were extremely rude about it. So if you have any food allergies or dislikes, oh well. Not good for a restaurant if you ask me! Of course they jack the prices way up because it was New Years and give you smaller portions. To make matters worse our food arrived cold. We will not be going back.
This was the eighth New Years in a row we have come to this restaurant. It has always been one of our favorites and we looked forward to our one time a year there and this year was a terrible experience! Our service was slow and not attentive. The dishes on the table were all scratched up and looked dirty. We were sitting at the table for ten minutes before she even came over to ask us if we wanted a drink. They have always had a half menu on New Years but this year they took of the beef and broccoli. We had food on the table before the drinks were served and when the drinks finally got there, our friend had to remind the server that she ordered tea. I ordered a peachy heaven and it was delivered in a filthy glass and had things floating in it with sentiments at the bottom of the glass. The drink they brought to replace it was a completely different drink than I ordered but I didn’t want to wait another ten minutes for yet another drink so I didn’t say anything. The food was delivered cold but over cooked and it was all a mess. Did not taste or look fresh at all.
All in all, we have come to expect a lot out of this restaurant and this time we were totally let down. They stopped giving out their champagne glasses out a couple of years ago and since then it has just gone down hill for us. It’s sad to say but I think it’s time to find a new place to celebrate the New Years.
Consistent in terms of food.
Service could be better.
We have been on New Years Eve in the past. This year noticeably absent were the festive decorations, (silver and gold balloons and streamers throughout ) and wait staff!!!. We were seated on time, then waited and waited for a server. Ordered drinks and appetizers at the same time. They came together! and ordered main dishes. Items we wished to order we were told "we are out of it" at 6PM.
No buspersons, no runners. A scant number of servers were clearing tables, delivering food and cashing out.
After a long time determined to be 45 min based on the party across from us who has not even been greeted in 45 min. I had to get up, go to the hostess desk and ask for the check.!!!
Turns out the club soda with a splash of cranberry and lime was $6.75. Only cranberry juice...no lime, no club soda....NO TIP! We generally tip 20%.
The food was good but not up to usual standard. Terrible service!!!
We chose this for our New Year’s celebration. On the website the pictures were pretty and the menu sounded appetizing. The restaurant delivered on both and more. The staff was attentive and the noise level was great even though the restaurant was very busy. The food was fabulous. We look forward to coming back here soon.
Food was excellent especially the Golden Temple Ribs and the Steak Kew was cooked to perfection. Best Stoli Doli. Wish I lived closer as I would eat here every week.
Food was mediocre and not flavorful. Service was decent.
