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

This restaurant's Chinese food incredibly inauthentic and terrible. The food is overpriced and bland and as I speak Chinese, I was horrified to overhear a man who seemed to be a manager, yelling in Chinese about a rat problem in the kitchen. Gross! Someone who ate with us got food poisoning and I reported them to the board of public... More

We used Golden Temple for takeout after a half marathon. The food was above average for Chinese takout, with many different and fresh ingredients. We have ordered from there again since and enjoyed all of the food we have ordered.

My family and I went here for dinner on xmas. While we had been there earlier in the fall and enjoyed it , this dinner was terrible. The server had little command of the menu, the table lacked napkins and silverware, no tea was served, they ran out of hot and sour soup at 7 pm, the food was not... More

My husband and I organized what we hoped would be a fun, family lunch at Golden Temple for Christmas Day after reading numerous rave reviews. We got our little kids and grandparents revved up to go out, arrived and were seated promptly. After that were were completely ignored for over 20 minutes...I mean, try as we might, the waitstaff averted... More
