The Chinese seafood here is absolutely delicious. We got the twin lobsters in garlic sauce and we're practically licking the shells. The fried pork in salt and pepper is another favorite. I thought some of the other dishes were a little bland but overall everything was good from what I remember from 10+ years ago. I'm not sure of the... More

All the food was tasty and cheap. They were also served hot and pretty quickly. The place could use some decoration, but overall, awesome!

We enjoyed our Cantonese seafood dinner. Good offerings from the 'wo choy' family menu, so you can always ask a server to read what's offered on the pages written in kanji. Great prices and traditional favorites! We dined with family friends, and this restaurant feels very 'local' for regulars who want a good, no frills meal!

This restaurant specializes in Chinese style seafood, but it has a complete standard Chinese menu as well. My girlfriend ordered the crabs with ginger and scallion, and I ordered the seafood hot pot. We also had an appetizer, and the total came out to about 30 dollars. The crabs were fantastic, and my seafood hot pot was very good.

I used to live in Boston area and eat in this restaurant often. Famous for its twin lobster menu, especially its spicy salt and ginger scallion. I also like the spicy salt squid, pork chop, and garlic peapod. Had a chance to eat there again recently. The restaurant is still the same and the food there still fits my taste... More

I've eaten lunch at Victoria's many times over the last several years, but always expecting (and receiving) no more than run-of-the-mill food, so it was a very pleasant surprise, on a recent visit, to find that the quality of their dishes has really improved a lot. The portions, which were always large, are maybe even bigger,and they are being more... More

We had the twin lobsters done in ginger and scallions The lobster was most tasty cooked this way. To accompany the lobster we had an order of schezhuan... More

We have eaten at Victoria's about once a month...for the past 12 years! Awesome, fresh, authentic Chinese cuisine conveniently located on Commonwealth Avenue not far from Boston University. Any American will absolutely love the Westlake Soup and Salt-and-Pepper Fried Calamari or Shrimp. The beef and Chinese vegetable is incredible. Along with the bubbly hot white fish, the sweet-and-sour pork and... More

Great fresh seafood. real authentic Chinese food. You see mostly chinese families eating there and especially for special occasions. there other dishes besides seafood are delicious as well. It is not a place to dine, it is a place to go and eat.

I have a friend who swears by this place and finally convinced me to go along with her. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share among our group. The food is authentic and pretty cheap for the amount you get. Only problem I had with it was that a lot of it was overly salted.
