We had a large party and a few people did not show up. Waiter was annoyed with us and treated us poorly. Food was typical americanized Chinese crap food. Nothing was especially tasty and I ordered mine extra spicy and was bland as could be. Great for Nursing Home Food

My husband and I have been here a number of times since we live close by. The people are nice and the service is good. This past weekend we stopped by and I was a little disappointed. My husband ordered the General Tso's chicken ($15) and I ordered the chicken lo mein ($10). When I received my meal it basically... More

As soon as you enter you know you are not in a common Chinese shop. It has luxurious paintings and art. The staff is conscientious and personable -- regulars include professionals and society clientele ! Delicious !

Freshest Ingredients and wonderful waitstaff make Great Taste a memorable dining experience. In an era of stripped down, strip-mall Chinese food experiences with dubious quality, the Great Taste crew is there to remind you what fine dining should be like, with art-filled walls and crisp clean table linens to enhance an excellent selection of menu items from the simple and...

This is an amazing place. Well appointed. Great service. I have eaten here before but feel compelled to comment. The food is the best I've had in Connecticut for Chinese cuisine. I had the lunch special very tasty tangerine beef. Lots of crunchy vegetables perfectly cooked and seasoned just right. Five Stars all day long !!

Great Taste has been a favorite Chinese restaurant for many years. The atmosphere is comfortable with plenty of booths and tables and the service is very good. Everything I have had from the extensive menu has been delicious and I have never been disappointed. It is on the pricey side but worth every penny.

Thank Karen R
