“Good food yes, but GREAT service.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Had not visited this restaurant for over a year, so I was apprehensive about deciding to go there with company.
Had a visit from my sister-in-law and her husband and wanted to take them out for lunch.

They have just moved back from Florida and craved good a good Chinese meal. I was very pleased with the choice I made. The food was very good and the service was superb.
We had a luncheon Pu Pu platter as appetizers for the 4 of us. Our choices were 2 for the number 5 lunch specials of Teriyaki steak and 2 for the number 6 of Boneless spare ribs - with a side order of fried rice with pork. For drinks we had sodas and on ice tea with lemon. Everything was excellent.
We had a very good meal with so much food we all took home the leftovers.

Best Chinese food I have ever had, although I have not been to China, or visited much of Boston's Chinatown. Food is never cold or "re-heated". They have a unique sweet and sour sauce that reminds me of apple sauce. This place never gets old for me. They lso have a teppanyaki grill and sushi.

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

6 of had lunch and food was not very tasty. We asked for bread or rolls to go with our meal and they said that they do not serve bread. When we received our check an 18% gratuity was added which was fine but then when our final bill came there was a line for a TIP. If I had not read the initial bill I would have left another 20%. Very deceiving -- Asside from all of this both male and female restrooms had a horrible odor which prevented anyone in our party to use the facilities.
Much different from the Great Chow located in Quincy.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

The food was great. Big place with a great selection of Asian food. We went to see a band, they stunk, but we stayed for the food.

“Quality chinese food”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

The restaurant itself is attractive, it has a waterfall when you come in and a fireplace in the side dining room. We usually asked to be seated in that room, the dining room behind the bar does not have as much character. The food is good quality, we particulary love the lettuce wraps, beef mushroom, and lemon chicken. The down side is that the food does not come out all at the same time. It comes 1 or 2 dishes at a time. At times this can be very inconvenient. They also do not serve a pot of hot tea as most chinese restaurants do or have condiments on the table. You have to ask for everything. They will provide it, but you always have to ask. They also do not give rolls and butter. The martinis are delicious. They do have an extensive drink menu and it fun to try. Overall a good experience.
