Salty but Satisfying

I have a friend who swears by this place and finally convinced me to go along with her. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share among our group. The food is authentic and pretty cheap for the amount you get. Only problem I had with it was that a lot of it was overly salted.

We came here to meetup with family in Boston (we're Chinese). The atmosphere is definitely that of a traditional Chinese restaurant - super casual, slightly rundown - the dishes were quite authentic and tasty so no complaints here. Apparently, my Chinese relatives only visit this place when they go out for dinner.

Students at BU recommend this restaurant because it is close by, and has reasonable prices. The food is okay, just like your neighborhood local Chinese take-out. The servers were not very attentive.

When our family went to eat at this place, it was amazing! Everything is very authentic and affordable for the quantity that they offer. The service is very good too. We will definitely be going back for more!

Heads up on a new Mexican Restaurant in San Miguel. Yesterday my wife and I had the pleasure of having lunch at San Miguel’s newest restaurant. It is Victoria’s and is located at 35 Ancho San Antonio. It is open for breakfast at 9:00 and stays open for comida until 6:00 or 7:00 (yet to be decided). It specializes in... More

This Chinese restaurant is on Commonwealth Avenue in the midst of Boston University. There is a full Cantonese Chinese menu rivaling that of restaurants in Chinatown, including more exotic dishes. The prices are quite reasonable, the portion sizes ample, and the flavors quite good. Service is fast (once you get the waiter's attention). On weekends and evenings, there are lots... More

The Victoria Seafood Restaurant is a neighborhood joint usually frequented by students as I was told. An old friend of mine took us there for lunch during my port day in Boston. We ordered a steamed black grouper, twin lobsters in ginger and green onions and sautéed baby bokchoy. What impressed me most was the exceptional freshness of both the... More

My wife and I used to eat at Victoria regularly 30 years ago. We moved away and lost touch. I returned with a friend and was surprised and delighted to find it looked the same and the food was just as good. The scallops were deep sea and delicious, done just right. The vegetables and sauce were very good and... More

This is our go-to Chinese restaurant when we don't want to deal with Chinatown parking and just in general when we want good Chinese food. Must order dishes for large parties are: Beef Chow Foon (dry fried), Salty spicy squid, Salty spicy pork, Peapod stems stir-fried with garlic, Seafood with crispy noodles, Eggplant with minced pork, and a big bowl...

Great Cantonese style food. Good place to go for genuine Chinese food... not just the fried chicken wings, crab rangoons, and lo-mein of American-Chinese restaurants. Comparable to some of the best that Boston Chinatown has to offer, without the crowds and lack of parking. Great deals on the food too... all relatively inexpensive. Can't expect too much in terms of... More
