I live in Boston, close to Quincy. There are no decent Chinese food places in my area. I happened upon this place, and now I will go nowhere else. Always fresh, always reliable, always delicious. Best in Quincy for sure. I would recommend to anyone, eat in or take out.

Great Chow is not your traditional chinese food restaurant with regards to the interior and decor. Stop by, grab a booth, and relax to traditional (american style) chinese food that won't break the bank and is served quickly.

First of all, I must distinguish between American Chinese food and Chinese Chinese food. American Chinese caters to Caucasian diners used to fried rice, general gau's chicken and the like. Chinese Chinese caters to (duh) Chinese diners. There are many such places in Quincy. I like Fairy Cafe and South Garden particularly. Sometimes, I just feel like American Chinese and... More

I get very skeptical of chinese restaurants so I make sure I ask around from friends first to see if there's a good one. This was definitely good for a chinese restaurant. Very fast service, the food was fresh, and it was clean.

I stopped in to grab some sides to go with my teriyaki chicken I was preparing at home. I ordered the fried rice, dry and greasy, definitely left over from lunch. The spring rolls were soggy and greasy also. The restaurant is really nice inside and in all fairness, I think if you went in and sat down for lunch... More

Best Chinese food in the area. I love that the kitchen is open and this one looks very clean. The food is as good as Chinese gets however, they make their own Duck sauce and it is allot different than every other Chinese Restaurant I have eaten in. The staff is super friendly and they try hard to earn business.... More

The Great Chow Chinese Restaurant is aptly named. There is a huge selection of Oriental cuisine; and our party of seven ordered and shared a very wide sample of the dishes on offer. All of these were delicious, and the servings were of generous proportions. The majority of the dishes were less than $10, with a few more at $12... More

We've been going to this restaurant for many years. The food used to be excellent, probably the best Chinese food in Quincy. But the last three times we went there the food was mediocre at best. We used to love this restaurant but we will not be back.

All their dishes come out great. My favorite is the Orange Beef. Never had a bad meal there. Easy Parking on Beal St. Sweet & Sour Soup is very good. Place is big enough so that you never have to wait long to be seated. Staff is very friendly. If you have never been to Great Chow then you are... More
