It is very hard these days to find a good and authentic Chinese restaurant in Baltimore. Human Taste has a warm atmosphere and service is very good. They have two menus and we usually ask for the menu reserved to the "knowledgeable" people about Chinese food. The soups are tasty, and we usually enjoy a dish with tofu. However, we always need to ask them to make it less greasy. Be careful! Many of the dishes have a tendency to be too greasy. If you feel adventurous in your food tastes, this is the place to go. And it is cheap!

This place is super authentic. By that, I mean the menu is devoid of the typical chinese restaurant fare ...this place had some more standard items (eggplant, beef, pork, lamb) but also more authentic items (frog, turtle, pig blood). We had lamb stir fry, which was marked for 2 peppers hot but not really spicy, to me. Still it was very good. We ordered this cucumber appetizer that, had this spicy sauce that went with, was fantastic. Overall, everyone had something they enjoyed. The service was really good, as well. They do need to update the menu to take out items they no longer offer and they are on the expensive side but it is worth it.

I took a chance on a new takeout restaurant and I was not disappointed. The shrimp were huge and the sauce was delicious. The steamed broccoli was very fresh and tasty.

Came for lunch with a group. Some of the dishes were really good. The crispy duck was nice and crunchy without being too dry or greasy. Mushrooms and baby bok choy also done very well . Everything was decent but the salt pepper shrimp in shell let down a little by a soggy coating and the steamed flounder was probably not fresh fresh but that frozen fresh fish. It's still miles ahead of your regular Chinese place but needs some fine tuning to hit the highest levels. Menu choice was overwhelmingly authentic.
