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

They start you up... More

Visited for Chinese New Year. In addition to the regular menu, they had a special four course menu for the week (through 2/25/15). Dinner includes glass of wine or champagne. The ribeye off the special menu was fabulous! The entire meal was great but the ribeye was especially good.

I enjoyed dining at Great Taste Restaurant with family and friends. I enjoyed a their soup, lemon chicken and unlimited hot tea. This business is family owned and the service is phenomenal. If you have an opportunity to enjoy French cuisine..Great Taste is not to be missed.
