Golden Temple ripoff

Although this is probably "chowhound blasphemy", I have to admit, as I did grow up on "americanized chinese food", I still love the occasional barbequed spare ribs, shrimp with lobster sauce, etc. Having said that, last night I went with a group of 10 to Golden Temple in Brookline. Although the food was certainly edible, it was average. What was truly astounding was that we got mostly appetizers (3 Golden temple ribs, fried shrimp, salt and pepper shrimp, salt and pepper calamari), we also got steamed chicken with broccoli, 2 orders of shrimp egg foo yung and 1 order of spicy green beans and everyone got a cocktail...the total bill with tip was $400! I don't think I will ever go back here, it is way overpriced and very average...I only went because a high school reunion committee wanted to meet there. Sorry for the rant but just in case someone else was thinking of going there...DON'T!
