    Honestly this was really disappointing. I used to go to Temple all the time before I moved out of the area. My partner and I stopped on our way home from the beach as we used to love this place. Firstly, we weren't offered the specials even though we overheard several tables offered. It was incredibly difficult to get a refill for my partner's drink. They took my partner's plate before asking if he was finished. I was asked dif I wanted dessert while I still had my fork in my hand eating dinner. The filet mignon egg rolls were bland and tasted like dry roast beef and wilted cabbage. The chicken egg drop soup was barely more than lukewarm. He ordered the duck, which was supposed to be half a duck. Wasn't anticipating half a duck would be two drumsticks/thighs. The skin was perfect but the duck was incredibly oily and poorly cooked. I ordered the scallops tangerine. Half of them were cooked well and half had raw batter inside. The restaurant is clearly in need of maintenance. While the aesthetic is beautiful, it's the same decor and paint for approximately 15 years and there's clear gouges in the walls with white chunks showing beneath the dark grey paint. The bathrooms were in poor condition. The restaurant had maybe 6 other tables on a Saturday at 6pm so the quality of service isn't acceptable. It was very slow inside the restaurant for inattentive service, the amount of pressure to finish quickly, and the poor quality of food. We were very excited to return to a restaurant we loved for years and now we won't be returning.

    Second time here, 1st with the new name/ownership. Food was excellent, I had the Chicken with Pineapple, and my spouse had Moo Shu Pork. Both very good and tasty. Hot and Sour soup was nice and spicy, wonton soup, the broth was extra tasty. Also had the shrimp spring rolls, also good. Only thing I dinged them on was service. If i could have done a half of a star less for service, I would have. It was good, the general manager was friendly and helpful. But we never knew of the daily specials, since no one mentioned it. Only knew there were later on when we heard another waiter announcing the specials of the day to another table. Prices are on the high side, but that's the norm now.

    Last night ate at Temple with my VEGAN friend and husband. She has been a Vegetarian/Vegan for 45+ years. She ordered Vegan chicken Imperial. She asked both waiters 3X's if t was the vegan dish. Turn out it was the crispy steak which was so horrible it was motly fat. This is totally UNACCEPTABlLE. Will NEVER go there again. She was in tears. One of their problems is they brought the entress out at different times.

    So happy for Allen - His food is always quality meats and fresh vegetables. We love the lettuce wraps and ribs to start- the pepper beef and April special of fried noodles was excellent. The only thing we weren’t crazy about was the jasmine tea - would have preferred oolong, black or green tea. Will be back soon!

    Our first time here & we enjoyed everything!! The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night but service never suffered & food came out timely. We had the crab & asparagus soup & baby back ribs for starters. So good! Entrees: scallops with garlic sauce, grand marnier shrimp, chicken & broccoli, vegetable lo mein. We had a left overs. All delicious. Nothing greasy/oily which can happen with sauces. We will absolutely return.

    We are a group that enjoys each other’s company and love to eat! The food was very good and there are excellent choices for everyone. The noise level was high - it was Saturday night and there was a large party going on. The hostess was very accommodating with our table request. We always enjoy Temple but I feel the space is getting very tired and could use a refresh decoratively. Value is excellent!

    The service is excellent. Very attentive! The sizzling filet mignon is one of the best in Monmouth county. Cuts with a fork like butter. We also had the tangerine skirt steak which had a little sweet taste like tangerines. Both a must have! We took our son and his fiancé and said we have to go back again. A hidden gem in Red Bank. The new owners have made this place the best Asian in Red Bank plus byob! Linda and Rich Keep up the good work!
