Best of Boston

1998 Best Chinese Restaurant

Grand Chau Chow

No matter whom we ask, Grand Chau Chow is the first place people mention for authentic Chinese fare. In addition to such adventurous dishes as Fish Head with Ginger and Scallions and Braised Duck Feet with Oyster Sauce, you’ll find excellent examples of such old faves as Crispy Sesame Chicken and Beef with Scallions. All this, plus a cool faux waterfall.
