“When in Central Square, Mary is a great option”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Feel like Chinese food in Central Square; Mary's is it ...

Remember: CASH ONLY and closed on Tuesday.

Food is very inexpensive. You have good vegetarian options if you so desire.

Here's what I've ordered and liked...

Appetizers:
Vegetarian Spring Rolls
Fried Eggplant


Schezuan Spicy chicken
Sweet Orange chicken
Mongolian Chicken
Baby bok choy
Tofu in curry sauce
Spicy chengdu tofu
Ma po tofu (without pork, you can ask for that and they'll do it)
Singapore Noodles
Chow Fun noodles

Hot tea is unlimited.

Service is very prompt, cheerful and very functional. You may have to point to items on the menu (unless you can speak chinese).

Mary Chung is a wonderful experience all around.

I hear they do a nice Dimsum brunch; never been.

“Excellent food, very relaxing atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Went over the weekend so that we could order Dim Sum. Bill ran $45 for four people. How can you beat that? We had seven small dishes which all were excellent. Service was super. Timing of plates was great. Definitely go again.

“Delicious Szechuan Food Never Disappoints”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Love their spicy peanut dun dun noodles with or without shredded chicken--Like the suan la chow show dumpling soup, this is consistently delicious. Despite consistently flavorful dishes on their standard menu, Mary's specials are made with what is most fresh and thus very good, too. Cash only. Closed on Tuesdays,

“Good value for money”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

They had dim sum but we went for the standard menu. We picked a couple of things but the waitress said others were better. She was right - the Sesame Chicken was very good and the noodles were improved by the hot sauce she brought. The hot and sour soup was tasty and the price was right - $20 for a nice lunch for two.The waitress congratulated us for finishing our plates. Just like mom might have done! Worth a visit if your hanging out in Cambridge. They don't take credit cards so bring cash...
