Do Not Bother dining at Arnos on 51 Main St, 56 Union, or the Tavern on Natucket- Huge Waste of Money. We read a newspaper review and went to 56 Union where we were extremely disappointed with the the food. Don't order the crab ragoons they raved about how great they were in the article and it turns out that they were cold and fishy tasting. The $30.00 steak at Arnos was overcooked and the crab cake was really fishy/gamey tasting-Didn't taste right, Yuck! I was sick after. The Tavern is good for a drink but the food is sub-par/the french fries were good. The lobster bisque had small remenant mushy lobster meat at the bottom. I thought Nantucket was soppose to have outstanding Restaurants but we were really disappointed!Just want to give a heads up to whomever will be going there so they know where not to dine.
This place had the most flavorful local chinese food I have had in the area, with huge healthy portions and at a great price.
We tried the seafood noodles, prawn balls and fried yellow fish special and everything was delicious.
Our order appeared very soon (we know because we were very hungry and counting the minutes!) and service was good too.
The noodles especially wad the best I've ever had.
I can't wait to go back. Highly recommended.
I like some other reviewers have been lured by the fact that you can buy 4 dishes including a lobster dish for $40. The dishes taste great and you can't beat the price. If you need to take out food, you better call 40-60 minuts ahead, it's always easier for us that way, and you don't have to worry about parking. If you love lobsters, you should try this restaurant.
This is THE place I go when in Chinatown because a Chinese friend brought me there many years ago and said it was the best. (He's an excellent cook and knows his Chinese food, so I went with his recommendation.) I've never been let down. This place rocks!
So they use to have three lobsters for 10 dollars last year, now they have it two lobsters for 10dollars. What's up with that? Well, you can't beat their price for lobster, but I hope next year it's not going to be 1 lobster for 10 dollars. The food is decent and it's a little bit more consistant in ingrediants and portion size than East Ocean in Boston. I think they are less obvious in their cook switch than East Ocean. The service isn't as good as East Ocean. You normally have to wait like an hour before you get the food. So say you call in and you don't have to go pick up the food until 1 later and add some time also there waiting. So probably 1.5hrs total before you get the food. The place is extremely small and very dirty looking. The oil is every where. East Ocean is better at hiding it's dirtiness. I feel if you eat to eat in, probably East Ocean is better. Both restaurants are good for take out. Better eat it at home! We haven't encounter any mistakes yet on our take out. We eat there because of the lobster! Give it a try! Also, if you are up late, they actually stay open until 3am. Which is very hard to find in Boston. Most of the restaurants are already closed by 11pm.
This is your basic hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. It has tanks with prawns, fish, lobsters and crabs, and serves AMAZING food cheap. It's a little hard to order the good stuff if you don't have anyone that speaks Chinese in your party, but you should get the fried flounder and the fried noodle-beef-Chinese broccoli dishes.
We ate there last night -- three of us, with lobster, flounder, spare ribs, beef & veggies and THREE heaping plates of the beef noodle dish and it came out to be $65. Can't beat it!
