The worst Chinese Chinese food you could ever imagine. Compared with gems you could find in Chinatown, this doesn't even rate half a star. Plus, just down the street there's Yenching in Harvard square, the only restaurant outside Chinatown that serves great Chinese Chinese (not American Chinese) food. Avoid this place at all cost!

What a great restaurant!! Went for a Sunday buffet with whole family. Four teens and 3 adults. All the great food you can eat at a very reasonable price. Waiters and owner all extremely personable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The first time I came here was attending a dinner hosted by my professors at the Harvard Medical School to welcome fellows from China. Then I came again two more times with different set of menu. Each visit was very satisfying to my taste bud as an Indonesian who's been disappointed by some Chinese & Thai Restaurants in Cambridge &... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Cambridge. Their lunch buffet spread is very good too. I have been going to this place quite a bit even in the midst of my busy law school schedule. The food is a little on the expensive side but very well worth the price. You should try their spring rolls and the fried rice.... More

We spend a lot of time in China-- we know Chinese food. This is the real deal, some dishes with a twist, but still well within the parameters. not cheap, not absurdly expensive. Very pretty dining area, and very good waitstaff. We'll be back.

With a consistently extensive and tasty menu, this restaurant has earned a loyal clientele in the lively northbound segment of Mass Avenue north in Cambridge. The fish and seafood dishes are particularly elegant and very fresh. It is also a favorite of lunch goers who enjoy the street view from a full bar at any time. Classics like the garlic... More
