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.

Last September, a group of friends devoted to the celebration of Boston style lobster sauce, met in Plymouth, MA for the 5th annual Lobster Sauce Festival. After tasting lobster sauces from 4 area restaurants, The Golden Temple in Brookline,MA came out the winner as it has for three out of the four years preceding it. Once again the Golden Temple...

Visited with friends. This food quality was excellent, however our waiter was pretty awful. The first appetiser came 5 minutes before the other. Drinks took forever to come. The bill came before any offer of deserts, coffee etc. Won't return which is a shame as the food quality was great.

Golden Temple is a large restaurant offering good food at reasonable prices. The drink menu is long and varied, and the service is quick and friendly. This is a reliable option.

I go to Cheesecake for lunch every Friday. Love the Art Deco atmosphere. Menu is extensive ith a great variety of comfort foods as well as offerings for the health enthusiast. Staff is always attentive and congenial. I will continue to go there every week!
