    In all fairness, maybe they were short staffed because of the COVID outbreak and the Christmas holiday but service was extremely slow. Some meals came out cold. The room was extremely bright with terrible ambiance. We have been to this restaurant in the past and it was usually very good. I hope this was just an off night.

    Lack luster. Food was mediocre. Had egg drop soup, most basic and tasteless. My husband had sesame chicken, the two pieces of broccoli on the side were stone cold, had to return. My shrimp with vegetables lacked any interesting flavors, and was heavily laden with a cornstarch sauce. Not enough garlic, ginger, fresh herbs of any sort. This food isn’t gourmet. The ambiance isn’t. There’s a bar at the entry with liquor bottles, but they don’t have a liquor license. Help was okay, but really lacking. The hype of this restaurant originally has gone far far down to don’t bother!

    It was crowded and super noisy - we were seated at a wobbly round that was good for 6-8 - while we were a party of 4. Asked the waiter for an ice bucket for the bottle of Prosecco - it never came after asking for it 2x - once upon being seated and another time after opening the bottle. Ordered our usual - excellent as expected. We were there to celebrate a birthday - of the 2 dessert options only one was available. It wasn’t the one we wanted. The bananas flambé / wow was it awful. Asked for coffee that never came either. We ate half the dessert expecting it to get better with every bite but it just didn’t grow on us. Chocolate ice cream pairing was all melted and not not enough- whatever they dipped the banana in to deep fry it was off - chef - please try a new recipe - bananas weren’t ripe - needed some spice / we couldn’t figure it out. No one liked it.

    My wife and I had a great meal at Temple. You can always count of the filet mignon to be cooked perfectly at Temple. For apps we had the pan fried pork dumplings and the crispy creamy spicy shrimps. For dinner, my wife had the Chung King Beef and I had the Sizzling black pepper filet mignon. Everything was delicious!!! Service was great. And we have a doggie bag for lunch tomorrow 😁

    Food here is always excellent. We usually order the black pepper filet mignon which is amazing. Tried the sizzling shrimp and scallops but were disappointed with the quantity of items in that dish so will skip that next time. Everything was well seasoned and very tasty. This is our go to place for Chinese. BYOB an added bonus.

    The food was very good but a little overpriced. The most negative thing has nothing to do with the restaurant but Open Table. I booked outside dining for 6pm. Everything was booked or so I thought. The restaurant informed me when I got there that they do not take reservations through Open Table or directly. They luckily had a table but inside only. Open Table needs to ensure that their affiliations are updated. I really wanted to dine outside.

    Egg rolls were saturated in oil. Extremely greasy. The sesame chicken was dry and had no taste at all. Same for the beef and broccoli. Very disappointed with all the food. Unfortunately, we didn’t enjoy anything.

    Sat outside. Table for two too close to parked cars. Felt awkward and isolated. Hot&Sour soup used red pepper flakes for the heat. That’s not proper and alters the flavor, not in the right way. Dumplings wrappers were too thick and doughy. Shrimp fried rice wasn’t! Just white rice with plenty of Luke warm shrimp. Lastly, the Chicken with Black Bean sauce was good but too sweet. With tip this costs $67. A bit too stiff, but understandable in today’s world.

    Kind of a let down. Was expecting amazing. Got eh. Service was not great until a change of shift. Then we got a very good server named Autumn. The food was not so gourmet. Appetizers were way better than the entrees. Neither of us was impressed.

    From the name you’d expect a different Chinese Experience however what you get once there is a confused bistro that doesn’t resemble much of anything authenticity Chinese. A couple of dishes here and there and many variations of their take on dishes. Small menu. Not my cup of tea.
