The food was delicious! My family and I had a few appetizers and shared two entrees. The Garlic Shrimp as amazing and the peppercorn chicken was fried perfectly. Order the banana flambe for an extra special treat.

Our meals were quite good, though our server, Sammy, was not. The restaurant was less than half full, yet we had to ask him multiple times for simple things, and even then he didn't provide. He also misinformed us regarding menu items. It's a shame, because, with a different server, the evening would have been much better. Also, it was quite cold in the (no liquor) bar.

Food was very good. We shared appetizer for two and then each ordered a dish. We could have ordered less food. My only annoyance was the amount of prawns in the prawns and eggplant in garlic sauce dish. Six and not that large among the huge plate of eggplant. My partner had a beef dish and it was mostly beef.

My only complaint would be that the lettuce wraps should have been permafrost. Filling was excellent but putting them together at the table was messy. Everything else was delicious!

Great food, excellent service, like the outdoor seating although it can be noisy with cars going by. However, that didn’t bother me because the food was delicious, portion size was generous, and noise is to be expected if you choose outdoor seating. I will go back.

Service was good. Waitstaff was attentive. Ordered calamari for appetizer and it was excellent and plentiful. Ordered ma po tofu, sesame chicken, and special red curry shrimp. Tofu was great, sesame chicken was all white meat and delicious. Red curry was good but perhaps a little salty.

This restaurant is consistently good. The portions are very large so there's always lunch for the next day if you so desire. The menu is large with great options. We tried the variety appetizer platter for 2 and it was delicious.

This is not your standard Chinese restaurant! While there are a few favorites (Mu Shu Beef or Pork, Hot and Sour Soup), this is Asian inspired food taken to a whole different level. Everything is prepared to order and arrives piping hot. Try the fried tofu appetizer, the prawns in grand Marnier sauce, our the beef tangerine. Portions are very generous, so be prepared to bring some leftovers home. Currently it is BYOB, but a liquor license is pending. Only downside is that the noise level is high, making conversation a little challenging.

We ordered our food mildly spicy, but it all came quite bland. Also one dish had msg that caused me to get a headache. Wish I was warned. We asked our server to bring us spice that did help, but it would have been better if the chef did it. Also lobster fried rice was suppose to have 1 1/2 lb lobster meat in it, but the actual amount was hard to find. Dish cost $37, but we did not get close to what we paid for. We will not return anytime soon.

Service was good but it was a quiet night so it should have been

Food was very good the Chili Shrimp was quite good with a mild heat and sweetness

The pork and eggplant in bail sauce was also very good and the quantity was such that a lucky someone had it for lunch the next day

Already looking forward to our next dinner here

Have tried this restaurant several times now and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, with a very nice variety, and good value. Portions are large. The filet mignon eggrolls are fantastic and the crispy tangerine steak is wonderful. Well certainly frequent here again.

We dined on a Saturday night, no wait to be seated, we had a 8:15 reservation. Started with the pork dumplings which were great. Tried the Thai Basil 3 special and Peking Duck. Both dishes were excellent. Joey our server did a great job. Overall a great experience. Look forward to coming back.

Ordered three dishes, only one was satisfactory. The Black Pepper Steak was amazing, however the Shrimp with Asparagus was terrible. Shrimp was bland, and one piece that my wife had tasted uncooked. The asparagus was good, though. The rice dish we had was also just ok. We told the waitress that the shrimp dish wasn't good, but she really couldn't care less. Quite frankly, $100 bucks for 2 people, with no alcohol, is a little off-putting. I think I would give it another try, but very unimpressed considering I had heard great things.

First time at Temple for my daughters birthday. She had been there once and wanted us to eat there also. The portions were larger than I was led to believe so I over ordered. The staff must have realized this so they asked if we wanted the main course cut back some. Very nice of them to recognize we couldn't possible eat that much. My family (party of 12) was very pleased and commented about the high quality, original flavors and low sodium, compared to other Chinese restaurants.
