Cute Small Intimate Restaurant

by: callisto at Citysearch

Cons: Not good for large groups

I love Korean Temple

by: sasha_nyc at Citysearch

Is this a joke?

by: aknoeb at Citysearch


We ordered from Temple because it's the only Korean place near the lower east side that delivers. The eel bi bim bop doesn't come with any of the usual vegetables that constitute bi bim bop so for $14 dollars I got some greasy rice (tasted…

storebought dumplings

by: butter88 at Citysearch


I've been to many korean restaurants but this will be the first place that serves dumpling that is supermarket bought. They were awful and certainly expensive at $4 during lunch hour. Very deceptive practice and I was not happy.

Pros: service, decor
Cons: cheap food, not 'homemade', cheap ramen

Go for the ambience, not for authenticity.

I live next door to Temple; I've eaten there several times and I walk by it daily. I agree with the reviewer who stated that the people who have given overly positive reviews are probably friends of the owner (a smart move -- these…

Pros: Decent food, Nice alternative, Moderately-priced
Cons: Exagerrated reviews, Limited seating, Small portions
