I came for an event called Plant Nite where you are shown how to put together a succulent garden etc (plantnite.com) and drink whilst hanging out with friends and getting your hands dirty. I only had a couple of beers but the waitress (Pam) and the waiter were super great and ready to help with food and drinks. A couple... More

I love coming here for the dollar oyster deals and the great drinks! However, the food sometimes will give you an upset stomach afterwards.

I ate few times in this restaurant, for lunch and dinner, and 1) food was consistently good. Portions are huge 2) service is professional 3) very few people, if any, were in the restaurant This puzzles me: why people don't visit Bistro Chi more? in the huge number of Chinese restaurant that I tried in the Boston area, this is...

Bistro Chi is tucked away off Hancock St in Quincy. At the time there seems to be construction going on but inside the pulse is definitely different. This little gem has really tasty food at good prices and the speciality drinks were awesome. A great place to hang out Friday after work. Great choice of music as well.

Food is amazing and service was great! Two reasons I did not give it a 5 start rating: 1) The use of MSG in their food. If you ask they can and will leave it out of the dishes they prepare (which I had them do). I just wished for public health reason they did not use it AT ALL!... More

We frequent another restaurant owned by this family and hadn't tried this one yet. What a delicious and a little bit different menu. The salt and pepper chicken wings were to die for. We could have eaten a bucket of just those but we also ordered the crag Rangoon. These were delicate and light with just the right amount of... More

This is a great place for a great meal. There are big dishes and the soups are fantastic, specially seafood soup. The benefit is great because the prices are fair

Bistro Chi is actually two very different places under one roof..... One-half the facility (Bistro Chi) is nominally a Chinese restaurant, though the menu choices go well beyond this narrow definition, and the other half the facility (Kama Lounge) is a modernish lounge bar catering more to a late-night crowd and serving an array of interesting tapas. Bistro Chi's food... More

Best Chinese style food I'd had in a while. Visited with a Groupon, knowing ahead of time we would be in the area - about 30 minutes from our home. The place was nearly empty, but it was a Monday @ 8ish. Very clean, nice and modern. Our waitress couldn't have been any nicer. Noticed quite a few people stopping... More
