Food is excellent and the menu offers many many choices (if not familiar with dishes ask for the pictured menu). Not many Chinese restaurants around the area for sit down (white clothed tables), most seem to be only Chinese take out. Also has a nice friendly bar with good service. Look for bartender Diane for top-shelf drinks, beers, wines and... More

Taste of China never disappoints. The special selections are enticing and varied, and are always as good as the description promises. On a recent evening, we enjoyed some pork dumplings with a spicy sauce for a starter, and scallops and shredded duck for our main courses. The service was good, and we weren't at all rushed, allowing us to savor... More

Years ago Taste of China was recommended to me by a family member. I was new to the area and I assumed it's like every other Chinese American restaurant where you pick a letter and number by a menu item and it 20-40 minutes later you are eating out of a square box with splintered chopsticks. If you want that,... More

The ambiance of this restaurant alone is enough to get you out of of PJ-takeout mode! You kinda just KNOW it's going to be good. And then there's the food - explained on a menu that includes classic favorites and chef specials - that does not disappoint. We ordered one classic (Kung Pow Shrimp) and one Special (Clay Pot Meatballs)... More

Taste of China is not your average suburban strip mall Chinese restaurant. This is a high end place (and the prices reflect that)--the menu is unique for the area, the food is fresh and well-prepared, and it is always satisfying to eat here--especially with a large group.

I love Chinese food--in Shanghai and Bejing, in London, in Rome, and all over in the States, Wherever I go, I look for restaurants serving well-prepared authentic Chinese cuisine. They're not easy to find. In my view, one of the best in the West--up there with Shun Lee in Manhattan and Yank Sing in San Francisco--is Taste of China, run... More

This is a solid Chinese food option. Staff is friendly and food is great. I highly recommend the chengdu dumplings: they're spicy and delicious.
