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

I looked on trip advisor/yelp to find a backup restaurant in the Quincy for my parents 50th Wedding anniversary dinner. Had originally planned on Cathay Pacific but did not like the menu choices, management, or crowd that now is there. The folks at Bistro Chi could not have been more accommodating and helpful on the phone. A party of 22... More

This is a great place for a meal. It's not high on ambiance, but it makes up for it in food and service. The waitstaff is fast and courteous. Just the right amount of attention. Make sure you try the shrimp in garlic sauce as it's fantastic. We have been here twice and both times were great. We will be... More
