My wife and I visited a Taste of China for our first time this weekend, and based upon the rave reviews we saw, we were quite disappointed. My wife had a shrimp & vegetable dinner, and I had the cashew chicken dinner. The cashew chicken tasted good, but there was so little sauce that the entire meal was too dry.... More

I was hoping to find someplace at which I could sit down and enjoy some standard Chinese fare. Taste of China surpassed my expectations. I had eaten at ToC many years ago during the brief time Peter Chang was the chef and wrongly assumed that all the great tastes I had enjoyed had vanished with him. After Chef Chang opened... More

I've been dining out a lot in Charlottesville and I try to keep within a budget. Taste of China popped up as a place to try so I went for dinner. The place is in a strip mall, so it's not exactly the most exciting location but then again, you can't eat location. There were several large groups of Chinese... More

Very popular spot considering how busy it was for lunch crowd. Also well liked by local oriental population. Large serving for 6.99 lunch pricing. Hunan Shrimp was a bit salty but had right amount of heat. Chicken & Cashew was flavorful. Plates where cold so food did not stay hot on plate. We will try a different place next time... More

First off let me say if Chinese people are writing reviews on Google it must be Authentic Chinese! My take. I've been to Toronto Canada where the largest Chinese Asian is in the US nest to California. When in Toronto I quickly relised here in the US we only get a very deluded version of asian food. One most are... More

The two things that stuck out to us were the huge portions (good enough for two meals!) and how great everything tasted! We did takeout and it took 20min for it to be ready, which was perfect because it took that long to drive there! We got a soup, appetizer, and two entrees and it came out in the high... More

A friend and I were visiting Charlottesville. My friend is Chinese and we both live in the NY Metro area. Based on TripAdvisor.com reviews, we decided to try this restaurant for dinner on March 19th. GREAT CHOICE! They serve authentic Chinese dishes! Their food is fantastic! You couldn't find better in New York's Chinatown. Service was fast, friendly and attentive.... More

If you want a delicious Chinese dinner… Order it here! This is the best Chinese food I have ever had the pepper shrimp... Oh so good! The chicken they use is tender, not rubbery like some places. Dumplings, lo mein, general tso...ALL GOOD :) it is kind of pricey, but worth it.

Stopped here on a Saturday for lunch just after 11:00 when they opened. Waitress was attentive. For appetizers we ordered hot and sour soup, pork wonton 'soup' (comes in an order of 8 with broth) . The wontons were amazing, and the soup was pretty good too. For our main courses we ordered beef with broccoli and general tso's chicken.... More
