I recently ordered Chinese take out from Best Taste. The order was ready quickly and the owner was very kind. He even honored a coupon that had expired for a spring roll and dumplings. I will definitely go back next time for quick Chinese (authentic...or American) food.More

We first heard about Best Taste from a neighbor of ours who is a native of Beijing and is attending Law School at IU. He and several other Chinese friends of his highly recommend this restaurant so we visited it with our son and DIL....It is relatively small and kind of a "hole in the wall" which we took as a promising start. We each ordered a different dish and none of them disappointed. The Congee which my son ordered was a special favorite as was the Hot and Sour soup but all the dishes were well received. The restaurant staff was very friendly and attentive. Best Taste is highly recommended.More

Unfortunately, I think this once very authentic restaurant "toned it down" for American tastes. It is still good but much more similar to other area chinese cuisine in town now.

A bunch of my friends got together on the fly tonight to eat dinner at Best Taste, a very cool Chinese restaurant in Bloomington. As always, the food was very tasty and there was plenty of it, as it is served in very large portions,...enough to feed twice as many people as was ordering it. Always leftovers to take home from here!More

I stopped here for lunch one afternoon, and only had like $7 or $8 on me. That should have been plenty for lunch, but pretty much the only thing I could get was an order of fried rice. The rice was not great. It was...very heavy on the soy sauce and lacking in any other flavor. The beef an okay quality. The interior is not fancy, but it reminded me of some Chinese restaurants in Chicago. I didn't mind it. The service was friendly, but a little clunky. I think because it is new. I talked to them about possibly offering some lower priced/smaller portion options for lunch because in Bloomington, it is not reasonable to have to pay more than $10 for a basic lunch. They listened and said they will consider it. Time will tell. I might give it one more shot to see if it was a fluke, but if the next visit is off, I won't be back.More

A hidden gem near Waldron Arts Center. Staff is welcoming and friendly, cooking is head and shoulders above the norm. Large selection of creative combinations to choose from. We've never been disappointed (though I admit I haven't quite gotten up the courage to try the...few more exotic dishes.) I am thoroughly addicted to their garlic eggplant.More

I've visited this place several times with people who were born and raised in China, and they told me this was one of the only places they've found in the States that actually serves authentic Chinese food. They offer a wide range food. Most of...it would not seem too unusual to Americans, but they do have some exotic dishes like marinated jellyfish and fried lamb testicles. I highly recommend this place to anyone seeking something better than Panda Express.More

Any Chinese place deserves one try. It may surprise you and offer something new, different or better. This one was delicious. It is not very convenient for me but I hope to get back.

Wonderful meal - spicy chicken and chili peppers, red oil chili beef, pork with green onions.. They do not hold back on the heat, but it is not overbearing, and it is delicious. A terrific addition to Bloomington's Asian food scene, and especially convenient -...right next to the 4th street parking garage.More
