Stopped at the bakery to get a watermelon smoothie, coffee roll, coffee mousse and fruit custard tart. All were delicious and the bakery items come in a beautiful box.

Came here twice in 2 months to have more of their congee and dimsum items. What we ordered was flavorful and really hit the spot. The menu is extensive and you can hardly go wrong with any of their items. Most importantly, portions are generous and the prices are more than affordable. It is a small restaurant so come early...

Food is always keeping its high standards, very tasty and very inexpensive, you can get desserts from the bakery next door, egg tart is my favorite to go with their coffee.

Can't wait to try again, as we were sat family style with 2 others, and whatever they ordered looked fabulous! We had 2 different noodle dishes, 1 with shrimp, 1 with chicken. Took home leftovers and had 2 more meals!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dim sum meal. And we are pretty picky. Satisfied me eating vegetarian and my husband eating pork and shrimp. This is a gem. Enjoy!

Decided to give this a try while walking through Boston's Chinatown one evening. We agreed on sharing 2 starters and 2 mains between us both. First off came the Crab Rangoon & Peking Ravioli. To be honest, I didn't touch the ravioli as my colleague looked like he was having a hard time chewing the small piece he cut! Plus... More

Before you laugh, i am basing my glowing recommendation upon the quality of the food. Its a typical Chinese restaurant so don't expect silver service or trendy decor. I chose the set meal for two and was blown away by the taste. Delicious clams with black bean and chilli and beef with Chinese vegetables cooked to perfection. Even the starter... More

I saw another reviewer rave about the congee and I have to add my endorsement as well. Anywhere else, congee is assumed to be bland and tasteless. But at Great Taste, the congee is flavorful and soothing like a good homemade chicken soup. The staff is friendly and thoughtful but may not seem that way due to their limited command... More

Very helpful waitstaff English seems weak but order came exactly as we expected. Very large portions so be careful not to over order. Very inexpensive. Large number of choices on menu. Food good but not exceptional. Hot & Sour soup very good; spicy as expected.

I enjoy going here for dim sum from time to time since they make it fresh to order. I am only giving 3 stars because, recently I just found out that if you pay by cash, they do not take pennies at all. Also if your check come out to whatever cents ( for example $10.52) they will round up... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences, visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler, and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide range of Asian food available, within easy access of South Station. At night, Chinatown becomes a late night food destination after the bars close.
