Excellent meals and service!!

My family and I have been to Mulan restaurant many times. Very authentic Taiwanese/Chinese food as well as great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended! We ordered Kung Pao Chicken(spicy) and Spicy bubbling fish filets, as well as fried tofu. Very excellent!! Love this place.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, I headed to Mulan expecting an intriguing meal. Didn't happen--it's closed for renovation with no indication when it will reopen.

Mulan has the best Chinese food in Boston area. There are lots of great food to choose from. Try them all. The down side is the restaurant is always very very busy, and it does not take reservation! Parking is on street :(

My husband and I treated a recently retired couple to dinner here. We know Mulan in Cambridge (closed for repairs after a fire) and thought this would be a good substitute as well as more convenient for our friends. Since this was a farewell banquet of sorts, we ordered a goodly amount. Appetizers: dumplings, scallion pancake, half a smoked duck,... More

If you want some fresh, delicious and inexpensive food, you should give Mulan a try. It provides authentic Chinese food, and the price is about half of a typical American restaurant.

We had dinner here for the first time recently. It was some of the best (if not the best) Chinese food I've had since my last trip to Hong Kong! Meals were reasonably priced, portions were generous, service was efficient. I highly recommend eating at Mulan!

This restaurant is a revelation. We have some excellent Chinese-American restaurants in Waltham and the surrounding area, but Mulan is knock-out Taiwanese fare (traditional Chinese-American dishes are available, too). The portions are generous -- order a large soup and make sure you bring 5-6 friends, because that's how many can be served. The hot and sour soup was definitely spicier... More

If you are trying to get a taste of Taiwanese food when you are in Boston, Mulan is the place to go. The service is fast and the price is also reasonable. Our family usually go here twice a month. There are good mix of spicy and non-spicy for whole family. Definitely give a try when you are in the... More

We have eaten at Mulan many, many times. It isn't luxurious, the cooking isn't delicate, the presentations aren't elegant, but the food is really good, and authentically Chinese (Taiwanese). (At least the front several pages of the menu is; the Chinese-American dishes are available in the rear of the menu, but suggest they be ignored). Strongly recommend West Lake Beef... More

I can only believe that a Chinese restaurant is good when it is filled with Chinese people having fun. That is the case with Mulan. It is very important to order from the Chinese side of the menu, however. Otherwise, you might as well be eating at Kowloon.
