We've been coming to Great Chow for 12 years. This restaurant used to prepare very good food and very good service. Since the renovation a couple of years ago, the food quality has declined and the people at the register (we usually do takeout) are very unfriendly and unappreciative of our business. How about saying "THANK YOU"?. Tonight, we had... More

I just got delivery from Great Chow, which, admittedly, I do not normally do. I do eat Chinese Food from several other restaurants in Quincy, but they do not deliver so I gave this place another try (after having an unsatisfactory pick up some time ago). Well to put it simply, the Tid Bit Sampler, which had half orders of... More

Our server greater the table, " Hi, I am very busy! What do you want to drink? Boy we were surprised as there were only five tables in this restaurant that... More

A really neat and clean look invites you in. The immediate friendly greeting and continued attention from servers and staff impress you. The food is the best part. There is the usual menu but the different ways you can order, the quantity you receive and the quality make this one really fine stop. Give it a try. You'll find that... More

High quality Chinese food that is good when delivered but even better at the restaurant. The service is friendly. Large dining room that seems not to be crowded on most weeknights.
