Great food, quick and friendly service

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... read 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.

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.

We ordered on-line, and then waited in the restaurant for 60 minutes for an order of three entrées to be completed. Will not be returning. Would not recommend.

The food here is the best Chinese food in Charlottesville. The service isn't the best, but that's what call ahead and pick up is for! Some of the best sesame chicken I've ever eaten was from here. It was crunchy and fresh.
