Fell across this place when staying at the marina nearby. I've never been in a Chinese restaurant where the action takes place in the bar! Very social, with both locals and tourists eating in the dining room, the sushi bar, but mainly the bar bar. Wide variety of food, reasonably priced, and everyone seemed to be enjoying it very much.... More

WOW, I have missed the East Coast Chinese food. This place had great food and an outdoor patio to enjoy the warm evening. Highly reccommend.

We ate here by recommendation of the Rodeway Hotel and we were not disappointed! We checked out the dishes the folks next to use were eating and they recommended we try the Tangerine Shrimp. This is on the menu as Tangerine Beef, but they said we could get it with shrimp. OMG- was it ever good!! We ordered a couple... More

We did not know what to expect, but the kids wanted some Asian food as we walked around the Northend. They really are a Pan-Asian restaurant, as they have dishes common to Chinese, Japanese, and Thai restaurants. All are excellent. Service was good, waiter was attentive and had answers to any questions we had. We were so pleasantly surprised that... More

I've been going to both Billy Tse locations for 15 years or so, although not frequently. It was always great Chinese food. Not any more. An early dinner here on New Year's Eve was horrible. Chicken fingers were 90% fried batter, 10% chicken. General Gao's chicken was like chicken tenders is thick soy sauce. Lo Mein with tiny shrimp and... More

When we walked in only a few tables were occupied, and we doubted about staying or leaving. We decided to stay and give it a try, and it was a great decision. We ordered each a miso soup, which was perfectly prepared, to warms us from the chilly Boston weather. As a main course we ordered the sticky thai noodles... More

Had a very pleasant experience. Good Mai Tais, noodles and sushi. Service was friendly and very good value. Not much for ambiance but will definitely return.

We had the chicken chow mein, which was bland and boring. The crispy and spicy basil chicken was okay, but not good enough to take leftovers home. Won't go back.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
