If Mary herself is present, you will be greeted warmly, but if she's not, brace yourself for the least personable service imaginable. Robots could feign more friendliness. The fact that this place is so popular with the MIT crowd tells me that the cafeteria food there must be really awful and their taste buds have withered. To be fair, I have only had vegetarian and shrimp dishes, but because of its location, I have eaten there more than a dozen times and never been impressed. There is much better food to be had in the neighborhood. Walk a few blocks to Mulan or Royal East for Chinese food that really is good.

We used to live in Central Square and loved going to Mary Chung's restaurant. The place was always packed with a lively and local crowd, and the food was fresh, hot and extremely tasty. We went back with an old friend who was visiting for the weekend. The restaurant was virtually empty, the floors and bathrooms were dirty, and the air conditioning was non-existent. General Gau's chicken was mediocre at best. The pan-fried noodles with chicken and vegetables had no taste. Even our favorite pan-fried dumplings had lost their spark. Mary still does not take credit cards, but she still greets customers at the register.

Worst chinese food I have had in years. But the owner greets you and waitress is very nice.

Mary Chung is my favorite chinese restaurant. Her peking ravioli are outstanding. MIT students, faculty and staff could not function without her food. Great and imaginative chinese food at a most reasonable price.Dim Sum on Saturday and Sunday top it all off.
