I love the food, but the service is poor. The staff has no customer service skills and nor do they care too. Today we were told by a Waiter not to come back because we did not leave a tip. We asked that our food be cooked in a certain way, and we sent it back to be cooked correctly.... More

We were traveling on Christmas and this was one of the few places open. It was really good. We arrived at 9 and were seated right away. The restaurant was still pretty busy. They have a varied menu and many vegetarian options. We ordered 4 different veggie dishes (for 4 of us) and couldn't finish! They were delicious! If we... More

I recommend the crispy beef for anyone who likes a little heat. I've tried every soup they offer and they are all delicious. The decor leaves something to be desired; not a place to go for formal occasions. The only dish I have had that wasn't 100% was the crispy duck. Love the warm sake.

By pure dumb luck, I discovered Taste of China several years ago while attending a conference in Charlottesville, and I make a point of dining here whenever I’m in town. I am never disappointed. Tucked inside a large strip mall (Albemarle Square), Taste of China serves up a wonderful mix of authentic Sichuan dishes, along with the Chinese-American standards that... More

Found this place on Tripadvisor on a recent stopover in Charlottesville. My girls had soup, steamed dumplings and spring rolls which they really enjoyed. My husband and I started with the dumpling with red oil and they were very good. More Chinese than "American Chinese". When then shared the crispy beef in chef special sauce. It was tasty and had...

We were so excited to try this restaurant the evening of July 1 after reading the many favorable reviews on TA. I called to place a carryout order for General Tso's Chicken. I tried to ask for white rice and was cut off by the rude, demanding employee on the phone who blasted me for not specifying chicken. I was... More

We have been here twice now and really liked the food. However, this last time our entrees (crispy shrimp and spicy crispy duck) were so salty, it almost detracted from the dishes. The first time, the dishes were salty but tolerable. I would still recommend the cilantro fish rolls for an appetizer and the dried fried eggplant, roasted fish (which... More

My mother told me that when ever you see a group of people from the country of the restaurant dining there you know it's a good sign! Turns out she was right! This place is a diamond in the rough in our area as there are not many other good Chinese restaurants around. They are very generic. The only other... More

We heard about Taste of China and paid a visit . Over all, I believe they could do much better, because the food was average and the service was just ok. It may be because the actual chef was no more there!

Taste of China is one of our favorite places to go in Charlottesville. It is in a strip mall which made us a little cautious the first time, but we were very pleasently surprised as to the quality of food and service that we received. We try something different each time we come in and are always extremely happy. The... More
