I had a take out order from Golden Temple. The bill came to $62, which felt high to me. .When I got home I checked out the menu and confirmed that the online menu would have charged me $7+ less than I was charged by the restaurant. When I called the restaurant to complain, they immediately said that there was... More

We were a group of 8 people. We were given a round table that helped a lot. The food (especially the corn and chicken soup) was very good. The service was excellent. The waitresses were thoughtful, brought the wine and food in quick time.

After decades, the quality of Golden Temple's good remains excellent, and it shines through in every dish. They've stayed fresh by keeping all of the old favorites, and adding lots of new ones. AND DON'T FORGET THE HOUSE SPECIAL RIBS (not on the menu) - you'll be the hero of your table!!

Try the Golden Cloud Noodles vegetable dish, the best you will ever have. Our server which I didn't get her name was very attentive.

Golden Temple is my standard by which other Chinese restaurants are judged. The food is fresh, cooked to order and consistently delicious. Enjoyed their Restaurant Week specials.

Had takeout here last week. Great food! Beef was awesome, fried rice and pork spare ribs are among the best in Brookline.

Love their food, we usually do takeout. Fresh ingredients and it isn't too greasy. It also takes more than five minutes to make which always makes me feel like I'm getting fresher food.

Restaurant is located on Beacon street in Brooklyn and looks completely out of place in an otherwise subdued but nice eatery part of Brookline. Don't let the glitzy facade turn you away, this is some of the best Chinese you'll ever have. Don't miss the chow mein and the dumpling soup. Parking on street.

Lovely food. Huge bar and resturant. Even a dance floor if you fancy taking it Into he night. The food was lovely, portions are big so go easy on ordering. Furniture in dining area a little tired but I wouldn't let it out you off.
