We have never had a bad trip to Great Taste but tonight (Christmas) was horrible! The service was especially bad. We didn't have to wait for a table thank goodness because we made a reservation but that didn't matter. We were ignored for the first 20 minutes. Putting our order in was a nightmare trying to get the waiters attention.... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The staff is friendly and very professional. The setting has an oriental touch without being overdone. White table cloths and napkins & fresh flowers on the tables (booths are available as well). I went for lunch (served Mon through Sat, 11-3) and got a great meal. The prices are incredible for all the... More

I'm so tired of the schlocky take out places I decided to go to what I heard was a very good but very expensive Chinese restaurant. I'm glad I did. Unlike the rice boxes I usually go to, this place was very elegant inside, had waiters with black ties and vests, and the service was excellent. Everyone said hello and... More

Very nice restaurant. Food was very good and much faster than I would have thought. Service was excellent. The menu has a ton of choices. Can't wait to go back and try something else.

The only thing I will say about this place is that it truly is, the best Chinese food around. High quality, high end, delicious Chinese food. Never disappoints after going here my entire life. We have grown up on great taste so to speak. I will forever compare any Chinese food to this place and consistently never like anything as... More

Longtime fans. Prices have gone up. Rec. orange chicken chicken (the best) n rice soup, #fresh tasting. Service friendly, quick, ask for PAT- extra personable. Hot hand towels and complimentary fruit as usual. This food is above average, great atmosphere, great parking.

This restaurant is everything you could want in a Chinese Restaurant. Wonderful service and great food. Our non profit meets and eats here regularly, and they do a wonderful job setting up the meeting room, and serving our group. If you have not been there, find it and go soon!

The service and food are always great. I like the Polynesian chicken, sweet and sour chicken, curry chicken and their egg rolls. I always enjoy the dining in experience and quality service.
