The difference in Chinese restaurants can be, and usually is, huge. It was over a year ago that we enjoyed a delicious dinner at this restaurant. Last night our party of 6 were all very pleased with the food quality, portions, atmosphere and service. It was a very pleasant surprise to see that they have maintained this high level since...

Ate here with a group of 14 and the service and food were very good. Even though it was busy we only had to wait a little bit before being seated. Most in our party got the Complete Dinner add on which came with soup, and an egg roll or spring roll or teriyaki beef. We also got some very... More

My family has been coming here since before we moved to New Britain 11 years ago and we've never had a bad experience. Food & service and reliably very good. Enjoy your dinner on a starched white tablecloth, served by waiters in black jackets, in kitschy & colorful décor. From the first bite of your crunchy, piping hot egg roll... More

Hot and Sour soup ok, thick, good flavor, no meat or veggies, just wood ear and seaweed.Sesame chicken ok, salty (and not from soy sauce). Eggrolls obviously from frozen. Fried rice has... More

Was staying in Meriden on business. Checked my phone for Chinese restaurants in the area and Great Taste in New Britain came up first. It was a 20 minute drive but I went. Excellent choice on my part. Everyone from the person who sat me to, and especially the waiter were professional and friendly. The restaurant is very clean, cloth... More

My family has been coming back for years! Tasty fresh food and wonderful service. A must try. It does not look like much on the outside, but it's white cloth tablecloths and large fish tank make it comfortable. Pineapple chunks with our check add something extra!!!

We were 5 older women and some of us had never had Chinese food. The staff was very helpful and explained dishes and were not condescending.
