Chinese Banquet Recommendations

Thanks! The wedding will be all American food so we really want to do chinese food for the rehearsal dinner. I haven't been to East Ocean City in a very long time, but I remember the food being really delicious! I will give them a call. Do you have any recommendations/advice for specific dishes there?

Chinese Banquet Recommendations

I'm chinese and I'm looking for the best authentic(ish - b/c authenticity is pretty much unreachable in the boston area) chinese food I can get in the area. At Szechuan garden, we ordered only szechuan dishes, which is why it was particularly disappointing. I absolutely love lao sichuan (mostly frequenting the framingham outlet) but they really don't have the space to serve 50ish people banquet style. Most of the guests will be Americans with a handful of chinese family (guangdong) visiting from mainland china.

Was the food at China Pearl good? It seems like one of the three go-tos for banquets in the area -- not sure what distinguishes China Pearl from, for example, Hei La Moon, if anything. Thanks for the advice!

Chinese Banquet Recommendations

Yeah I've definitely been recommended this place before. I went in late May with a few people for lunch to check it out and the food was really just terrible. I was super disappointed because it was a frontrunner in my mind for the rehearsal dinner I'm planning. Lots of people have recommended this place online and said the food is solid, but based on my recent experience, I'm just not willing to risk it.

Chinese Banquet Recommendations

I'm trying to plan a rehearsal dinner for approximately 50 ppl. I really want to do a chinese style banquet... in Chinatown or in the burbs is okay. Are there any recommendations for places with stellar food?

Nicer ambiance would be... nice, but I'd rather the food be as good as it can get in the greater Boston area if there's a trade off. I've done a ton of research online already, but reviews/info has been inconsistent and lacking. I would love to hear from people who have had personal dining experiences. Thanks so much for your help!
