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

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.
