Great Sunday Brunch! – My family and I tried the Sunday Brunch last week and thought it was fantastic. Tons of choices - delicisous Chinese food, steamed buns, dim sum, and sushi too! Great value overall for the quality. We'll be bringing friends back with us next time.
amazing – great food, friendly service, and upscale amibiance. my favorite dishes at changsho are steam vegetable dumplings, hot and sour soup, peking duck, mogolian spicy lamb with pan cakes, shrimp with pine nuts, and no doubt the best general gau's anywhere.
fantastic food, outstanding decor! – I saw Changsho profiled on The Chronicle 2 months ago and decided to give it a try.
My friends and I agreed the food was graet - peking duck and general gau's were really incredible here. The decor is fancy, yet inviting.
Recomend this place for great Chinese outside of Chinatown.
Will defnitely visit again in the future.
They recycle straws. – I had thought Changsho is relatively clean for Chinese restaurants. Then I found they recycle their straws; I had a coke and the waitress asked me if I wanted another. So I answered yes thinking it would be a refill. Anyway, in the second glass of coke was a straw that was not obviously new. The straw had its upper paper-cover on, but when I pulled it off, the straw had drops of diet coke on its outside, which rarely happens if the cover wasn't in fact re-capped.
Anyway, the check claimed the second coke is a separate order. Be careful when they suggest you another soda. And when I argued about the straw, the waitress suspiciously over-reacted. It may sound like only a small thing but my new impression of Changsho is that they run their business quite unlike what they try to look.
seems a good place – accidentally went one evening. though I didnt ate anything, took one beer and one wonton soup. odd combination right ;-)
actually I gave company to one of my friend's because he was hungry. I will go back to this place soon to try.
Fancy, pricey chinese food – If you want chinese food in a fancy atmosphere, this is the place to go. Portions are small, but the ambience is nice, and you will definitely pay for it. Most of the choices are more americanized chinese food - walnut shrimp, etc. This is also good for large banquets.
Find another restaurant... – My colleagues and I ate at the restaurant and things tended to go smoothly until a large party across from us settled their bill. The Changsho staff argued loudly with them over the bill and a scene erupted in the restaurant.
Our party was given the bill before we were even done with dessert. Not five minutes after our dessert was finished, a staff member walked up to our table and picked up the bill only to SLAM it down on our table and tell us to pay it. Not two minutes later the server came back and reminded us to pay again. One person in our party was mid drink when a staff member took it out of her hand. It was clear we were being asked to leave.
Find another restaurant if you want to be treated properly.
good place for sitting in without eating – This place may first impress you with the most elegant environment, like a chinese palace. However, after sitting in and eating the pricy food, you may find it is the atmospere that you are going to pay for not the food itself. If you have never been to China and want to experience the feeling of being in the Forbidden City without paying the air ticket, that's a good place to go. For anything else, try a better place.
Extremely poor... – I enjoy going out and trying new restaurants but would not recommend Changsho. Aside from the difficult parking on the opposite side of the road, the food was extremely overpriced and of poor quality. It wasn't until the bill came did we realize we were charged 7.50 to switch white rice to pork fried rice on the Combo meal. The pad thai was tasteful, but not at all like authentic thai food. The hostess was very bland and did not have much of a personality. I would not recommend this restaurant to family or friends. On the postive note the Peking Raviolis were delicious.
Best in Boston Beautiful Superb Dinner – First off I would like to say that Changso has the best parking spaces in Boston. I cannot tell you of another Chinese restaurant in Boston with clean, free, and easily acessible parking. I found a spot instantly for my minivan, and my family and I were able to actually get out of the car and into the restaurant within 5 minutes (a record). Their food is superb, the Crispy Peppery Shrimp has a tasty crunch and beatiful texture. The dining room is incredibly clean and the service is excellent. THe staff is very courteous and polite. I am so pleased with Changso. I think that I will take my faimly here over and over again. I have never been to a better Chinese restarant in my 3 years living here in Boston.
