Nice Sunday Brunch Buffet

We got married 15 years ago and had our wedding reception there. The food is always fresh and great. We have never had a bad meal and love to have take out on Saturday nights. Great variety and wonderful menu with no MSG dishes and mouth watering appetizers that you will want again and again. Expensive and worth every penny.... More

A spacious and well designed dining room, perfect for a quiet meeting with friends or colleagues, not the crowded frantic scene of so many Chinese restaurants. This one seems a few cuts above. Wide menu with some unusual dishes, not the typical ones. Lots of seafood and vegetarian options, and a gluten-free listing also. One of the best in the... More

My 11yr old wanted to go to a Chinese buffet after her gymnastics meet. The selection of appetizers and entrees were delicious. We both enjoyed everything we tried, various shrimp dishes and general gau's were my daughters favorites; There are lots of workers keeping the buffet items filled and clearing plates from the tables. Price ($22/person)

Ate here for a large family dinner. Clean and nice decor. Tables not too close together which is nice. Food was above average in taste, portions on the smaller side for Chinese food but everything we had was tasty, hot, and well-prepared. Service was very friendly especially compared to most Asian restaurants. Our waiter even brought back the credit card... More

Had the Sunday brunch buffet. All of the food was very oily and cold. If they could fix these two problems, this would be truly a great place, as the food tasted fresh and there was a nice variety.

I actually got take out rather than visit the restaurant, as it was too hot out to leave the house. The stuff arrived piping hot. We had the boneless spareribs, crab rangoon, sesame beef and basil chicken with eggplant with brown rice. All were delicious. Holding onto the chocolate fortune cookies for a later treat. We will definitely visit this... More

If you're in the mood for some Chinese food and you're in the Porter Square area of Cambridge, you can't go wrong with Changsho. It offers consistent quality, in a very pleasant atmosphere. A favorite with business people who work in the area, Changsho is a good place for a luncheon meeting, since it's spacious, and attractively decorated. I've never... More

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!
