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.
Always delicious, always fresh, never outdone! House-special ribs are a MUST. They're conscientious of any dietary restrictions. Always friendly and efficient.
The service was horrible. The waiter said they were getting lots of takeout orders keeping the kitchen busy. There were five of us. One entree was served and we waited at least 20-30 minutes for the second entree. That dish was cold. When the third entree didn’t arrive after another 20-30 minutes we took it to go. I won’t go back to this restaurant again.
Crab Rangoon very good. Pad Thai had no seasoning. Veg lo mein also bland. Spicy green beans were good.
Christmas is great at Golden temple. The food, drinks and relaxed atmosphere are perfect with family and friends.
Quality has gone way down. We were extremely disappointed.
We came for Christmas when we thought the restaurant would be prepared for a big crowd. It was a big mistake. They had a holiday menu which seemed to be their normal menu but with no flexibility to make any changes whatsoever to anything on the menu. The waiters were not helpful when we tried to ask for accommodations for two members of our party who had dietary restrictions. We ordered edamame which came out lukewarm and mushy - they couldn’t make another order that would be any better so they replaced it with a small order of spring rolls.
Not going back again. It used to be a great restaurant. For the past 1-2 years, the service has been consistently bad, the food is never hot when it is brought to the table, and it's not worth the price.
The place was busy but am glad I made the reservation ! Food is 99.99% good . Nice to see familiar faces where they know you as you know them .Had a nice time with family and friends
They overbook so you regularly have to wait, even with a reservation. Service and food have been on the decline lately and don't match up with the high prices. Glory days of Golden Temple are long gone.
Exceeded our expectations. Got us right in on Christmas Eve. Food was prompt and delicious. Drinks were amazing.
