This is the go-to place for Chinese food after every high school graduation, family event or just for dinner in Washington Square. Typical Boston style lobster and shrimp dishes so different from the similar choices in New York. Nowadays, sweet-and-sour can be partnered with hot Szechuan or even Thai-inspired dishes and, like so many suburban Chinese restaurants, a selection of sushi dishes. There may be others with "better" food, but the popularity of Golden Temple is unmatched.

A wonderful wait staff serving exceptional Chinese food. Extensive menu serving nice portions that are flavored well. The bar is well staffed and the pours are above average for even a newbie. You may go to other Chinese restaurants which may be good and less expensive, but you will always say that Golden Temple is better.

As a friend of mine once said lets go to the Temple for a religious experience.

I have eaten there many times over the past 25+ years and my visit this week was the first in several years. When I entered I received the same warm greeting by the host as I had come to expect over the years. The décor, while somewhat dated is still most unusual and interesting.

The food was as always beautifully prepared and delicious. We had an old favorite the Golden Temple Ribs which are huge, meaty and worth the price. The dishes we chose all came fresh, hot and tasty.

Over the years I have come to expect consistently good food, prepared with the freshest ingredients and served by a well trained staff. We were definitely not disappointed.

The bar area was also bust and the drinks are great.

If you want great Chinese food that will always meet your expectations, this is the place to go. The prices are slightly higher than many neighborhood restaurants, but the food and the experience are worth it.

The food is good but not outstanding at their prices. I dislike the idea of valet parking at a neighborhood restaurant. Save your time, money and appetite and try one of the Asian restaurants
on Harvard Street or Brighton Avenue.
