Mary Chung is my go to place if I feel like Chinese food in Central square. They offer variety of food in such a good quality. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Having visited Mary Chung 4 years ago, my friend and I decided to revisit the place on our recent trip to Boston. I don't think I would ever go back. The staff were constantly pushy with regard to the specials and totally humourless throughout. This...More
