Good oriental food

This restaurant if hit on a good day will be the best you have ever had. If you pick a bad day you will hate you went. Not always consistant. However if you are lucky enough for good day you would not be disappointed. The food is excellent at those times. However if you hit them on a bad... read more

This place doesn't get enough credits! I eat here all the time and they definitely have the best Chinese food and the Japanese food that they do offer are excellent also. Not to mention, the price for the quality of the food is definitely unbeatable! Forget the other reviews, I think everyone should give this place a try to know... More

We moved to Vilas NC about five months ago and recently tried this restaurant. The food was good with light batter and delicious soup, egg foo young, lo mein and egg rolls. Yesterday my husband ordered the sweet and sour soup with side of rice. I got the egg drop soup with shrimp tempera. When my husband tasted the rice... More

We were so excited when they opened and Taste Grille was awesome....it appears those that opened it have left Boone and the quality went with them. The place is physically dirty...just look on e floor and windows from outside. The last time we ate there the good wad bad. The good staff don't stay...won't be going back, which is a... More

MUCH better than Makotos in terms of chicken hibachi. It's not the BEST I've ever had, but it's the best in Boone I think! We always get to-go orders, so I'm not sure what dining inside is like.

Despite being located in a strip mall, this place is a step above your average strip-mall Chinese restaurant. We went on a Saturday night and they were busy. The locals like this place, which should tell you all you need to know if you're from out of town. The service was a bit slow, but they were filled to capacity... More

...I can't think of anyway I would suggest they improve. The food is plentiful, usually very good. We have never had anything but courteous, prompt service. The bill doesn't surpise except to be less than I would have thought. The menu is almost identical to the Hunam down the hill which for years was easily the best Chinese in the... More

Enjoyed our visit on a Sunday for lunch. I had the chicken hibachi, husband ate shrimp/scallops combo - both very good. Salad & ginger dressing, as well as shrimp sauce, were delicious! Couple with us said their Chinese dishes were also tasty. Will definitely go back. Service was a little slow, but waiter was friendly, apologized for wait. Great food,... More

This place is by far the best Asian restaurant I have ever ate at. The food is so delicious with the difference being the fresh non-greasy quality food. Sanitation score is 94. The staff always makes it a great memorable experience. Portions are big enough for two meals. Taste Grill is a must try!

This is a decent Chinese food spot with some good sushi options as well. Lunch special has a lot of choices with large portions and a low price. Service is pretty bad which I don't understand why because they always seem to be overstaffed with servers sitting at the bar on the phone or just relaxing. Compared to China Buffet... More
