I had been here once or twice around the year 2000 but decided to go back since I was in the area. First, the decor is nice. I think it had been renovated since I had last been there. The interior design is modern and tasteful and the restaurant is spacious and dimly lit, perhaps too much so. Prices are... More

Let me start with my title: I dare to say this is one of the best if not the best chinese restaurants I have eaten at in terms of what they offer on their buffet and how it tastes. The manager of the restaurant greeted in a very courteous way, we were five and he quickly prepared a table for... More

Visiting Boston and wanted to try some Chinese. Service was very fast. Nice quiet restaurant. Great food for a great price. Had the best wonton soup we have ever tried to date. We also tried Dim Sum for the first time and it was delicious!! Would recommend anyone to go there.

We came across this restaurant by chance and it was a fantastic find. Wonderful service and delicious food. We had the sizzling pepper beef and chilli pepper chicken. Great price, amazing service and atmosphere. We will definitely return :)

There actually are not many Chinese restaurants in the Harvard/Porter Sq neighborhood of Cambridge and this is by far the best of the bunch. It is a large room with plenty of room between the tables, so unlike many newer places it's quite quiet. There are few surprises on the menu, but everything is fresh and hot. There is a... More

I was traveling back to Boston for both business and a visit with my family. My mom and I used to go to Changsho all the time when I was a teenager. But I hadn't been in years and since it had been renovated. And since I was paying for my own lunches :-) It looks fantastic and the food... More

Consistently a pleaser, from the muted understated elegance of its decor and its hushed, restful atmosphere to the considerate yet unobtrusive service of the wait staff. Changsho has proven itself to deliver reliably tasty food, worlds removed from the msg-laden glop you'd get in lesser restaurants. Try the spicy eggplant and the spring rolls.... they're delicious! You really can't go... More

Changsho has been our family's favorite fancy Chinese restaurant to go to for over 10 years! When we want a nice treat, that's where we head. It's a little pricey so it's a treat. The ambience makes you feel like you've gone somewhere special, the service is always great, and the food reliably very good to excellent. We've also been... More

We absolutely love Changsho - quality Chinese food every single time. Their pork fried rice is our favorite. Fast for takeout too.

Every year for our holiday celebration weekend my family goes to Changsho. We really enjoy the large round tables that seat large parties (although we didn't get it this year) and the ability to please all types of eaters. We got the appetizer sampler platter (2 of them), fried rice, a couple types of chicken, lo mein, and several vegan/vegetarian... More
