Great Taste may not look from the outside like an awesome resturant but once you're inside you forget the neighborhood you're in and enjoy the atmosphere. The waiters/waitresses are always dressed in full dressy suits with ties, and the tables have white table clothes and cloth napkins... Not what you would expect from and Chinese I've ever been to.

The Great Taste definitely lives up to its name. The staff is attentive and courteous. The decor is tasteful and the white linen tablecloths are a nice touch. I have been going to this restaurant for over twenty years and it never fails to deliver quality food.

By far the best dining room experience serving Chinese food. The lunch cannot be beat! Dinner menu is extensive but folks may think it expensive when comparing it to other sub-par Chinese places. Upscale feel, good service with exceptional presentation of food. Take-out orders are another thing. Have experienced, for some reason, when calling for take-out the food is not... More

I have been here many times, and went again last night. Great Taste never disappoints! Quality of food, fair prices, excellent service, and a white table cloth atmosphere, make for a one of a kind Chinese dining experience. Shrimp with walnuts and honey sauce, is outstanding, and seafood delight was all the best quality ingredients too.

I usually order the bean curd soup and veggie dumplings. I was very upset after seeing a bug in my bean curd soup today but I was furious about the way it was handled. I walked back up to the counter and there was a look of fear on the young woman at the desk. The manager was quickly called... More

Never disappointed in this place. There was only one other Chinese Restaurant on par with this one in CT and they closed years ago (Debbie Wong's in Middletown...remember that one folks?) and the food and service are always excellent. I used to work in New Britain and would enjoy lunch there quite often. Really miss that cause now I have... More

This is the best Chinese food anywhere. Go for lunch. Fastest service ever. Very professional. Great value. Best rice around. Go once you will always come back.

Sunday brunch is a great deal! A drink and four courses for $13.95. The food is always very good and fresh. Our waitress was excellent, very attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend great taste for traditional Chinese food.

'Upscale Chinese restaurant 'would typically be considered an oxymoron, but not at Great Taste. This place has consistently delivered the best Chinese food I've ever had, great service in a comfortable, retro-classy setting. Crisp white table cloths, plenty of high-back booths to make your dinning experience yours, without the company of too close neighbors. We love it here and we... More

My wife talked me into this and I did not want to go...what a mistake that would have been. By far the best Chinese food I have ever had. The service is awesome too. You won't be disappointed.
