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

A spacious and well designed dining room, perfect for a quiet meeting with friends or colleagues, not the crowded frantic scene of so many Chinese restaurants. This one seems a few cuts above. Wide menu with some unusual dishes, not the typical ones. Lots of seafood and vegetarian options, and a gluten-free listing also. One of the best in the... More

My 11yr old wanted to go to a Chinese buffet after her gymnastics meet. The selection of appetizers and entrees were delicious. We both enjoyed everything we tried, various shrimp dishes and general gau's were my daughters favorites; There are lots of workers keeping the buffet items filled and clearing plates from the tables. Price ($22/person)

Ate here for a large family dinner. Clean and nice decor. Tables not too close together which is nice. Food was above average in taste, portions on the smaller side for Chinese food but everything we had was tasty, hot, and well-prepared. Service was very friendly especially compared to most Asian restaurants. Our waiter even brought back the credit card... More

Had the Sunday brunch buffet. All of the food was very oily and cold. If they could fix these two problems, this would be truly a great place, as the food tasted fresh and there was a nice variety.
