I get very skeptical of chinese restaurants so I make sure I ask around from friends first to see if there's a good one. This was definitely good for a chinese restaurant. Very fast service, the food was fresh, and it was clean.

I stopped in to grab some sides to go with my teriyaki chicken I was preparing at home. I ordered the fried rice, dry and greasy, definitely left over from lunch. The spring rolls were soggy and greasy also. The restaurant is really nice inside and in all fairness, I think if you went in and sat down for lunch... More

Best Chinese food in the area. I love that the kitchen is open and this one looks very clean. The food is as good as Chinese gets however, they make their own Duck sauce and it is allot different than every other Chinese Restaurant I have eaten in. The staff is super friendly and they try hard to earn business.... More

The Great Chow Chinese Restaurant is aptly named. There is a huge selection of Oriental cuisine; and our party of seven ordered and shared a very wide sample of the dishes on offer. All of these were delicious, and the servings were of generous proportions. The majority of the dishes were less than $10, with a few more at $12... More

We've been going to this restaurant for many years. The food used to be excellent, probably the best Chinese food in Quincy. But the last three times we went there the food was mediocre at best. We used to love this restaurant but we will not be back.

All their dishes come out great. My favorite is the Orange Beef. Never had a bad meal there. Easy Parking on Beal St. Sweet & Sour Soup is very good. Place is big enough so that you never have to wait long to be seated. Staff is very friendly. If you have never been to Great Chow then you are... More

Great place for groups as we recently had a family dinner there. Drinks were good and the portions large. Convenient location in Wollaston.

If the two Adams presidents and their respective wives had frequented the Great Chow restaurant, they might still be tripping the light fantastic instead of lying entombed and mouldering in the dismal crypt of the Church of the Presidents. Learn the lesson they didn't and get yourself to the great chow eatery. Forget the looks of its somewhat gloomy interior.... More

We've been coming to Great Chow for 12 years. This restaurant used to prepare very good food and very good service. Since the renovation a couple of years ago, the food quality has declined and the people at the register (we usually do takeout) are very unfriendly and unappreciative of our business. How about saying "THANK YOU"?. Tonight, we had... More
