We arrived for dinner early in the evening and were seated promptly. Interior is beautifully designed and waiters seat guests thoughtfully separated to allow for privacy - a very nice touch. There were few guests during our visit though so it was peaceful and quiet....More

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.

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.
