Went this past Sunday to celebrate a friend's birthday. Hadn't been here for many years. Saw the the many dishes offered in the buffet and knew that that was what I wanted to do. All of my friends also partook of the buffet. The food was simply wonderful. Not your typical buffet. Had lot's of interesting food options and on... More

I ordered fried brown rice with spinach and chicken fried rice. When I got home we found it to be bland even after we put soy sauce on it. This place used to be better. Never again!

Five of us had brunch here recently and it was very good with food tasting fresh, refilled often, and everything clean and neat. The dining room is lovely, tables are spaced nicely, and decor is on the elegant side. Service was excellent, removing plates, refilling water, answering questions, etc. The shrimp and veggie options were outstanding as were the "summer... More

We came here with friends who recommended it for Peking Duck. We love to eat duck in this style. We've been to a few spots that serve it this way but this place definitely has taken the crown. We did have a few appetizers, one being the avocado shrimp with pine nuts. They come in little spoons so it's just... More

Changsho is one of my favorite restaurants in Cambridge. Eddie still greets customers as he has for years with a smile. The food and wine list still satisfy after more than twenty years. A comfortable and visually-appealing venue for enjoying conversation and good Chinese food.

I dine here frequently but went in June and the restaurant was clean, we were greeted and seated promptly. The service was a little slow, it did take about 20 minutes for our server to come take our order, but the meals were delivered quickly and everything was delicious.

This post is long overdue, and a review that is entirely different than the one I would have written a couple of years ago (2014) when I first visited Changsho. That first experience was not a good one, and I’ve not been back. Fast forward to May 2016. I decide it was time to swallow my little stubborn pride and... More

We got married 15 years ago and had our wedding reception there. The food is always fresh and great. We have never had a bad meal and love to have take out on Saturday nights. Great variety and wonderful menu with no MSG dishes and mouth watering appetizers that you will want again and again. Expensive and worth every penny.... More
