I've been going here for years! Delicious cozy family run Kosher Chinese restaurant . Great for take out or dining in. Very friendly staff and great service! Very reasonably priced lunch specials.

As someone who group up in Massachusetts and now lives in Israel, this place is awesome. Israel has nothing compared to this authentic Chinese food. I look forward to their scallion pancakes, Peking (fried) raviolis and spring rolls every time I am in the Boston area. It's not a fancy restaurant but the servers are friendly and the food is...

The main attraction of this restaurant is the $9 lunch special (between 11 and 3, not on Sundays) where you got soup or an egg roll and a dish with chicken/beef and fried/steamed rice. My favorite is egg drop soup, spicy kung pao and fried rice. Their beef is okay. The service is only okay and can lag a bit... More

There is so many restaurants around Coolidge Corner, why would you want to go to Taam China? Well, obviously because you care about kashrut and it is the only kosher Chinese place. Obviously the owners know that they don't have to try making palatable meals at all, just maintain the license and sell bad to mediocre food to people who... More

A solid choice for Kosher Chinese. Large menu, good value for the tasty authentic cuisine. The decor in the restaurant is in need of serious updating.

Went for a big family lunch and left well satisfied. There were lots of options to choose from and we covered a lot of ground! Food was really tasty and the restaurant was comfy with decent, if not exceptional, service. Prices weren't too bad - definitely recommend.

The restaurant is a throwback to a 1950-60 Chinese restaurant. Decor is very dated however food is anything but. Food is good, very fresh and the portions large. Service is excellent and I have yet to have a dish I didn't like. Unlike Kosher Chinese restaurants in NY though, rice is an extra fee but that shouldn't keep you from... More

For the only kosher Chinese food in Boston it's very good. Large selection of soups, appetizers and entrees to choose from.

It is run like a Chinese restaurant. They expect you to be ready to order when you sit down and look to clear dishes the moment you put your fork or chop sticks down, But if you ignore that, ask for tea before you order, order your appetizer and then later your main course, you will wind up with a...
