They all tasted kinda bad and unhealthy but hey! Its just typical american chinese food. I was eating egg fooyong and i felt something extra hard on my teeth. A... More

Nice building from the outside but not busy during the day at all. My husband walked up to get us a take away and though the wait was very long, the food was pretty good and came in large portions.

My husband and I live fairly close to this establishment, but have never eaten here. He refers to it as Cathay Pathetic, from everything he's heard in the past. His friends were correct. The rice was obviously reheated and the food was just a fried mess. The staff was rude and virtually nonexistent. If you're staying close by, I suggest... More

Let me start by saying that this USED to be one of my top two favorite Chinese places in the Boston area before I moved away last year. I will keep it short by saying that I was excited to introduce this place to my girlfriend when we were back in town recently and were shocked to get takeout in... More

Mr. Finn did call the restaurant on October 6, 2015. He talked to our day manager about dozens of ants crawling inside his takeout package that he... More

Very nice food- uge portions by British standards- hence the apparent (but not actual) high price. One rice and one main was more than enough for two of us!

This place was recommended to me by a co-worker so I stopped here on the commute home and glad I did. The fried rice was some of the best I had; the chicken teriyaki - fresh and the moo goo guy pan was crisp with chunks of chicken breast. I have been back since and have not been disappointed. Only...
