MuLan is an out of the ordinary chinese place in that it serves Taiwanese food. Good food, down to earth place with lots of asians eating there. The food is very much like what i ate in Taiwan on my several trips there. Just different enough to be a satisfying alternative to the many other good place in Cambridge.

If you would like terrible service in the form of any of the following, consider going to this restaurant:
1. Asking us multiple times if we were done when we have two plates that were half full still. (We ordered 3 dishes between 2 of us, certainly not a cheap order by person)
2. Having the bill slammed on us to get us going.
3. When presented with a 10% tip (due to 1 and 2), demanded that we tip at least 15%. At which point I got angry and asked to see where the 15% tip rule was posted and the waitress whimpered off to the corner.

The only reason it did not get a 1-star was because the food is decent for a Chinese restaurant in Kendall Square. (which, in all honesty, isn't saying very much).

My family was served well. Big bowls of lovely vegetables. We had Lo Mein, Bitter Melon and Salty Egg, and it was great. Something new to try. We had Sweet Potato Flour dipped Chicken Strips. WOW.

I went to the Waltham MuLan several times. Their food was pretty good... authentic Chinese food. The dumplings are probably their best dish. It's a good restaurant to go to if you're looking for authentic Chinese in Waltham. However, there are much better places in Chinatown.

Since it was a very busy night when we entered the restaurant, the female manager came to take our order. One of the dishes we ordered was #129, “Chinese Squash with Mountain Nagaimo and Bamboo”. When we saw the dish, it missed one of the most important ingredients. The waitress said the chef must have forgotten it and then broght the dish back to the kitchen to add the ingredient. Soon she brought the same dish back to our table and said they were out of that ingredient. I asked, “How much do you charge for this partial dish?” She went to ask the manager at the counter. The manager gave her a long lecture, but we couldn’t hear it because our table was too far. This waitress came back and said, “You can cancel this dish.” None of them offered any apology. The arrogance was very clear.

By the way, this place’s noise level is unbearable. We’ll not go there again.
