Taste of China

December 2nd, 2008


Now that Green Tea is gone we’re at a loss for where to go for “Chinese” take out.  We had not gone to Taste of China (in the Trolley Sq. topical ivermectin compounding from tablets Plaza) so we decided to check it out and hope for a new favorite.
It’s a little place that does have some seats but seems to be more geared for take out. ivermectin pour on pregnant pigs
Tonight we got Kung Pao Three delights, Chicken Moo Shi, Chicken wings and Szechuan Green Beans (lost the pic of the beans)
Kung Pao Three Delight:

Chicken Moo Shi:

Chicken Wings:

Everything was okay, not the best but not the worst.  I know it’s not a stunning review but it would be nice to have a place that made they standard dishes that somehow really stood out. ivermectin itraconazole   I will say the woman working the phone and pick up counter was really pleasant though.  Also, we didn’t get any soup my a friend of mine says their hot and sour soup is great.

  1. go to Chef Orient on Rt 9. Taste of China is not very good.

  2. I would say the food here is average at best. I’ll stick with the Lotus Flower which is my favorite place for Chinese in the Ham.

  3. I suggest Sichuan Gourmet for take-out, or Lotus Flower for the buffet.

  4. Call me crazy, but I love Taste of China. Then again, I’m one of those people who eats Chinese food only about twice per year, so what do I know? I love the egg drop soup, and everything else I’ve ever ordered here, and the workers are very nice. So I give it two thumbs up.

  5. I haven’t eaten much Chinese food in the Framingham area lately (moving back there this month) but I suggest driving a few minutes to Cherry Blossom in Ashland. I used to eat there once a week back in the day!

  6. In my opinion this is the worst Chinese food in Framingham. I used to live in the Sovereign Apartments right behind the plaza so I would walk there, and the first time I got it and it was below average but figured I’d give them another chance. I did, and it was the same. But since I lived so close, I gave it a third chance and ordered the most expensive item on the menu, figuring that might be their best effort. All I’ll say is, by far the worst Peking Duck I ever had. Stick with Imperial China or Han Dynasty, or even as mentioned above Cherry Blossom, or Sabrina’s in Ashland is also good. Heck, that place in downtown Framingham is also a bang for your buck, a lot of food that tastes pretty good for a cheap price. I think the name is the Joy Luck Club.

  7. Its ok, I like some of the dishes, they do good orange beef and use good veggies. The lady that runs the place is AWESOME but the heavier younger lady (daughter perhaps?) needs a little work on her people skills.

    I would definitely recommend as competent for takeout if its too much of a pain to get to Lotus Flower.

  8. EO Noodle is the best chinese food in Framingham. It is thai but more chinese. Everything is fresh and not the same kind of cookie cutter food everyone else has.

  9. If you are looking for the best chinese takeout in Framingham, the only choice is Sabrina Wong in the old Nobscot Plaza. Huge portions, dirt cheap and awesome taste

  10. Samba Rte 9 has limited Chinese menu but VERY good, great Pad Thai and excellent Sushi with several cooked Maki roll options for those anti-raw fish folks. I must also mention Imperial China which has very good Chinese, the best egg rolls and you must try the ‘house’ Mai Tai….

  11. Not actually in Framingham but right over the Ashland line on 126 is Fusion, our favorite for Chinese and Asian food.

  12. The best Chinese buffet around now (especially for the price/value) is actually Marlborough Super Buffet, on Rte 20, not far over the Sudbury line. (I know that’s not Framingham, but for folks in the north end of Framingham, it’s a heck of a lot closer than Ashland…). It’s in a plaza that’s mostly vacant — the anchor store is a Staples and I think there’s a nail salon, but most of the storefronts in that plaza have been vacant for a while, though I don’t know why.

    They have a really interesting selection of food (a couple of times ago, they even had whole crawfish – and this was at lunch!) and by far the best dessert buffet station I’ve ever had at an Asian restaurant (lots of different types of fresh fruit, including some more expensive ones than you’d normally see). The cold station (where the desserts are) also have good-sized chilled shrimp! They also have a small sushi station in the back, but not worth going there just for that. It’s not *quite* as big and extravagant as Pacific Buffet was (no made-to-order food station), but their prices are also a lot lower (especially by today’s standards) — I think it’s $8.95 for lunch (and there are often coupons in the Clipper “magazine”). I’ve only ever been there for lunch, so I can’t comment on what might be different at dinner…

  13. I think Imperial China has some great Chinese food, they also have a sushi bar for added diversity. Lotus Flower is also good, at least they have a great buffet.

  14. Another vote for Sichuan Gourmet! Best Hot and Sour soup. Another favorite is 3 Gorges next to the Ace Hardware on Water St. They deliver, too! The two times I’ve been to Imperial China were both sever disappointments. Cold and flavorless food (unless you count MSG being the main seasoning ‘flavor’). Another friend made the same comment.

  15. Love your website

    Gosh it’s been so long since I have been there
    Back in 78
    Things have to change- I guess
    I worked at store 24 and was constantly late – due to
    The train
    Lived on Arlington and always ran into the train!
