Went to this restaurant at about 5:45p on a Friday with a reservation. The place was pretty well filled. We were quickly seated. Service was either very good or somewhat rushed; I think it was the latter. Food OKay. Hot and Sour soup only fair. Felt we were being pushed to finish and leave. Very noisy place. Tables so packed... More

Invited for the first time, I was greatly impressed by the decore and fine paintings and art. The propietors greeted and welcomed us graciously. The menu was a bit higher that your typical oriental diner, but I found the quality higher as well. Beyond all, the table servers were extra attentive and very personalble and professional, especially Miss Happy !

We really like this restaurant for lunch. They serve on table clothes with cloth napkins and their fried noodles are fresh and tasty. The wait staff are dressed formally and the amount of food always requires us to come out with a doggy bag. The only problem I have is their soups. The wontons are much too thick and doughy....

First experience was our last ! We thought we'd treat ourselves to a PooPoo platter. WHAT A MISTAKE ! Shrimp toast was not prepared properly, too thick breading.Ribs had barely any meat on them. Egg rolls tough and chewy. chicken fingers overly battered. A chicken / vegetable stir fry was so dry it didn't moisten rice.Our waiter was a picklepuss.... More

Great Taste is the only place to get Chinese food. We went elsewhere in the past, but nothing else comes close.

My husband and I have been going to this Chinese restaurant for over 25 years and the food is always great. A little pricey, but it's worth it. It's conveniently accessible from major highways near New Britain, with ample secure parking. The place is classy, clean, service is prompt, and the staff very courteous and friendly. They start you up... More

Great Taste in New Britain, CT is, by far, the best Chinese food restaurant in the Greater Hartford area. Stopped in around noon on a Saturday and the place was already busy. We were seated next to a family with kids who were jumping around so we asked if we could move - not sure if that upset our waiter... More
