“Is this a club?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Golden Temple provides a modern environment with a classy feel. The E room bar has late night eating, drinking, and music provided by their house DJ. It goes from restaurant to nightclub before you even know what happened. Their menu has a variety of options, some unique to the restaurant as well as other more traditional dishes. Prices are typically higher than comparable Asian restaurants but its reasonable given the freshness of their ingredients and the restaurant atmosphere. This place is guaranteed to provide you with a fun night.

“Hidden nightclub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

So this place is a chinese restaurant by day, and a night club by night. I went there for the night scene and had a blast! Small but active dance floor. Funky architectural interior- a bit dated- but still fun. Drinks were strong, (which is a good thing in my opinion) but pricey. Scorpion bowl wasnt worth the money to me, too sweet and not enough alcohol, but some other people in our group loved it.

“Golden Temple was great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

The great reviews prompted us to have a meal at Golden Temple--and the people know what they are talking about! Warmly greeted and promptly seated, service was quick and attentive and the meal choices were numerous (offering Chinese and Thai cuisines). The entrees and appetizers are large-portioned so bring an appetite. Drinks are potent so be careful! Eaters beware: valet parking is cash before you go in (and not too much street parking near the restaurant). Golden Temple hit the spot on our visit!

“Chinese dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is the go-to place for Chinese food after every high school graduation, family event or just for dinner in Washington Square. Typical Boston style lobster and shrimp dishes so different from the similar choices in New York. Nowadays, sweet-and-sour can be partnered with hot Szechuan or even Thai-inspired dishes and, like so many suburban Chinese restaurants, a selection of sushi dishes. There may be others with "better" food, but the popularity of Golden Temple is unmatched.
