Best local Chinese in town. The women who takes your order is a crazy happy women! Always jokes and laughs while you wait for it to be made! Doesn't deliver but no problem as it's always hot when I get it home :)

Have tried most of the Chinese take always in Braintree and this is by far the best. Usually order by phone and meal usually ready on time. Staff polite and helpful, only negative thing is cash only as they now no longer take credit cards.
