Delicious and Great Portions!

The two things that stuck out to us were the huge portions (good enough for two meals!) and how great everything tasted! We did takeout and it took 20min for it to be ready, which was perfect because it took that long to drive there! We got a soup, appetizer, and two entrees and it came out in the... read more

A friend and I were visiting Charlottesville. My friend is Chinese and we both live in the NY Metro area. Based on TripAdvisor.com reviews, we decided to try this restaurant for dinner on March 19th. GREAT CHOICE! They serve authentic Chinese dishes! Their food is fantastic! You couldn't find better in New York's Chinatown. Service was fast, friendly and attentive.... More

If you want a delicious Chinese dinner… Order it here! This is the best Chinese food I have ever had the pepper shrimp... Oh so good! The chicken they use is tender, not rubbery like some places. Dumplings, lo mein, general tso...ALL GOOD :) it is kind of pricey, but worth it.

Stopped here on a Saturday for lunch just after 11:00 when they opened. Waitress was attentive. For appetizers we ordered hot and sour soup, pork wonton 'soup' (comes in an order of 8 with broth) . The wontons were amazing, and the soup was pretty good too. For our main courses we ordered beef with broccoli and general tso's chicken.... More

This restaurant looks like a typical run of the mill Chinese restaurant..and the name is so ordinary. But appearances can be decieving. It is splendidly excellent Chinese food. The place used to be owned by the renowned chef, Peter Chiang. Of Peter Chiang's restaurants in Richmond and Fredericksburg. The menu at taste of China hasn't changed since he sold it.... More

I came back home this summer and spent a week with my brother and a Chinese friend who lived in Charlottesville invited me to have lunch with her at Taste of China. Wow, was I impressed. The staff was so nice and my friend spoke Chinese and I spoke English and everything was understood and I could not believe how... More

Taste of China is a family friendly restaurant with great food. It's not the typical fare you expect in a strip mall Chinese restaurant. Try the Bubble Pancake as an appetizer. It's a giant, light as air concoction that is perfect with the house sauces. The dry fried eggplant is amazingf. It's light and crispy without a hint of oil.... More

I am always pleased with my order at Taste of China. The lunch specials are the most amazing deal with a soup, egg roll, entrée, rice and low mein, and a dessert for a price comparable to lesser lunch deals. Authentic and healthy with no MSG added.

I hadn't been to the restaurant in over a year, but went there with my son on the even of my departure for SC. We ordered a Szechwanese dish and a Hunanese dish, the latter which I haven't had since my years in Taiwan and Honk Kong. I was absolutely delighted with it. It consists of pork and pickled, dry...

May be the most authentic Chinese foods in C'ville. Food is more Sichuan style, which is spicy. Don't expect too much service. For Chinese people who live in C'ville, this is probably the best choice for a taste of China.
