Tonight we( 4 of us) was at this restaurant for dinner, we arrived around 7pm. We got seated right the way since Monday usually no long lines. Service was great, we ordered 4 dishes from the menu except the one wasn't listed but the regular can ask for it, the Sichun spicy fish bowl which is very popular with the... More

We have been going here for over a year now and love the place. Good food, good selections, reasonable prices. Their dumplings are wonderful, especially the pork and leek. Their spicy dishes tend not to be all that spicy unless you specifically ask regardless of what the menu indicates. Shredded pork with hot chili pepper is very good. They were... More

Been to Mulan a few times and have never been disappointed. The flavors are really good! Some of my favorite dishes are pork with leek, bean curd with green mustard, diced chicken with spicy sauce. I've tried other dishes as well and have enjoyed them as well. So I keep going back to try different thing.

I went there while on a trip to Waltham on a weekend. I heard about from some Chinese students I met in the supermarket across the street. The restaurant was all full and there was a line. So I ordered take out, but still waited quite long. I ordered a rice noodle soup and a wonton soup. The wonton soup... More

We had been going to Mulan regularly since it opened. There are other decent Taiwanese places around, but the menu selection here and the freshness of food beats them all. There are some very authentic dishes, and even the not-so-authetic ones (the ones to appease non Taiwanese/Chinese) are good. Lines can be long, but it is worth it.

The fried tofu is grand. The fried Peking dumplings had the best light dough I've ever had, though I might have appreciated a bit more seasoning (salt and ginger). It's a definite on my return-to list

Renovated, modern, and clean Asian restaurant specializing in authentic Taiwanese cuisine. Every dish is always incredibly delicious. You can order American-style Chinese that is excellent, but this is the real deal. Mostly Chinese people from Taiwan dine here - that says it all. Love it.

The food is OK. We had KungPao shrimp, for the first time in years, and Octopus with dried tofu The Kung Pao shrimp was mostly celery, and the Octopus was mostly tofu. Although there were more shrimps than tofu. The hot and sour soup that came with the lunch is decent Tea is Lipton

On a Friday evening, on a quest for great vegetarian Asian cuisine, I stopped at this location. I approached the counter to retrieve a menu, where I was not greeted, nor acknowledged. As I stand there reviewing the menu, a White couple enters behind me and they are IMMEDIATELY greeted, offered a table, and menus to be seated. It was... More
