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

I went to Changsho on recommendation of the potstickers from a coworker. Ended up staying for scallion pancakes, crab rangoon and the taiwanese popcorn chicken. All unbelievable. Warm and friendly staff only added to the experience

Not your average Chinese corner joint but not as high-priced as most high-end Chinese establishments, Changsho has lovely modern decor and charming very professional and attentive staff. We were six, including two vegetarians, and we all kept exclaiming over the delicious dishes. Try the stuffed scallion pancakes (a revelation), and the yuzu and lemon shrimp with citrus slices. Absolutely delicious.... More
