Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine is served in a modern and elegant room with wood paneling and high-backed chairs. Excellent renditions of old favorites, such as crab rangoon and a pu pu platter, are the mainstay of the menu. Chicken in garlic sauce and fried calimari are good bets, as are the fresh fish entrees, available in both Szechuan and Cantonese styles. Be sure to check the white boards for daily specials. The restaurant has a full service bar.
I love this place, and it has parking! Excellent vegetarian items on the menu, generous portions, great service. The buffet items are on the greasy side, so I recommend sticking with the menu. We particularly enjoy the 1/2 bottles of wine.
I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about. I've been to Chang Sho several times. I recommend their buffet, which offers almost too many choices and includes desserts (petit fours, etc.). This is a step up from your average Chinese restaurant, so it's just a tad pricier. The food is yummy. Of course a la carte is always available
This restaurant is local to my home so my family has been a few times, it seems as though EVERY time there has been at least one problem with our order. Tonight we ordered rice and asked that it not have beansprouts in it, when we picked up the order, we asked about it again and they confirmed, when we got home and found the beansprouts they were not willing to work with us to fix our dinner. Reasonaly expensive, and service is quite dissapointing. They even hung up the phone on me when I called with the complaints. We've also had trouble with them shortchanging us with extras such as rolls and sauces.
Unfortunately, with the exception of bean curd and steamed vegetables, all the food contains MSG. For people, like myself, with a NO tolerance for this flavor enhancer, is makes this restaurant a place not to eat.
A group of friends and I went here based on others' recommendations. We found that the staff was rude and the food, though decent, was overpriced. What's more, I walked one of my friends home afterwards because she was feeling sick (she threw up as soon as she got home), and I came back to find my car had been towed from the restaurant parking lot. They tow as soon as the place closes. Adding the $90 from the meal, we were out $200 for a poor dining experience... Definitely not worth it....
I have been going to Changsho every Friday night for ten years.Outside of Boston is not known for great Chinese food but Changsho is one of the exceptions along with the Great Wall. Try the Pineapple Shrimp. It's also a favorite of Harvard folks so if you aren't into metaphysical discussions best to go to their Sunday brunch rather than during the week.
