Golden Temple is an old style American-Chinese restaurant. The menu is extensive, the food is good and reasonably priced, and the drinks are strong. At least on our most recent visit, service was bad: slow, unhelpful, surly and incompetent, in the sense that our order...More

The food is fine but do not go if you enjoy authentic chinese food. Golden temple is a place for Americanized Chinese food made for American tastes. it has a beautiful atmosphere and a full bar. Good service as well

Surprisingly big place, in a city with a majority of smaller, local restaurants. Vast dining and drink menus. Service was polite and attentive. Nice neighborhood surprise. Will definitely add as a go to spot for Chinese dining
