This place has been around for many decades in the heart of brookline on beacon street in washington square. The food is so good and very reasonable. At night, they turn this place into a dance clubby type of spot. They have a live DJ and he plays amazing music. All very danceable tunes. He knows how to get the... More

Until last Saturday, I haven't been to Golden Temple in over 20 years. After Saturday's meal - I asked myself why not?. It was excellent! Food was fresh, very tasty and very reasonable. Service was prompt and food was hot. Great meal.

One of the best Chinese restaurants I have dined at!!!! The food is pure & fresh and goes beyond perfection.....The only drawback I ever have is parking although they do offer valet parking for $10.00

After many years the restaurant still serves very good appetizers, ribs and wings, and egg roll. Now has gotten pricy with it new items but still, tasty and worth an occasional binge.

So all the other brookline and Newton Cantonese restaurants have closed and Golden Temple is the only one left from the 60s. I grew up just up the street and west to Driscoll school. Heck I even went to school with one of the brothers. The best spare ribs in brookline and Newton far none. Lobstah sauce is the best... More

My boyfriend and I got delivery from here on Father's Day. When the food arrived we were disappointed to see how little food there was. I'm not sure if this was a one time thing because it was Father's day and they gave us a glass with the order, but regardless we paid about $50 for a side of rice,... More

My family and I have been customers of Golden Temple since 1960. It started out as a very small family owned Chinese restaurant with good food and good prices. It now has taken over the space of a number of stores and still provides good food , good prices and a friendly atmosphere.

I love this restaurant when I have groups of friends visiting OR for solo take-out. I have been an ardent fan for at least 30+ years. I am always reticent to try another Chinese restaurant for fear that it will NOT measure up to The Golden Temple. THANKS FOR BEING NOT ONLY IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT ENROUTE FROM THE BUS... More

After going here for years, our relationship is over. The food is absolutely horrible. I thought the last two times were aberrations. But after last week, we are OUT! I ordered the Orange Beef and it was so over cooked it could not be chewed. Some pieces were crackling like charred plastic when I attempted to eat it. Sent the... More
