J.P, Roslindale, West Roxbury Chinese Food?

Well, I and my co-workers have just endured another miserable, tasteless, ultra-greasy Chinese food delivery (this time from Imperial Garden in Rozzie Square, horrible and missing half the condiments!) and we're growing increasingly desperate. Are there no good Chinese places around here?!?
Help out a few really hungry, really frantic healthcare workers and give us some hope!

  1. Not much great Chinese out here, but I tend to lean towards Triple Eatery on Cummins Hwy for quick takeout. It's not great but it does the trick. The one on the corner of Corinth and Washington Street (is that Imperial Garden? I think so) ranks as one of my worst Chinese experiences ever - tasteless, bland, etc. I think they cater mainly to the french fries and chicken wings crowd.

    Food Wall in JP tends to get good reviews, but I've never been. If Sichuan Garden in Brookline Village is within range (not sure if they deliver or how late they are open), that's a sure bet for authetic, excellent Sichuan cuisine.

    There is a new place opening soon on South Street in Rozzie probably this week called Hong Kong 888 something or other. When I stopped by today for a menu, they didn't have one yet, but they were prepping some food and it smelled pretty good in there. Don't know if it will be anything special or just more lousy Chinese takeout.

    1. Spring Garden near the Home Depot in West Rox isn't too bad. The folks are very nice. Don't confuse it with the place it used to be--(name, anyone?) It was awful!

      In Putterham Circle, Mandarin Gourmet is good.

      But sadly, nothing is very good in this area!

        Before it was Spring Blossom, it was "Hunan Pagoda".

      2. Top Taste in Roslindale on Belgrade Ave has some really great take out and surprisingly the pad thai is really good as well.

        1. don't know about roslindale or west roxbury, but there's really no good chinese in j.p.. food wall is not bad for what it is--namely, take-out americanized chinese. we've had mixed experience with sichuan garden in brookline--pretty decent eating in, pretty poor takeout, but haven't been often enough to be confident in our assessment.

            Food Wall sucks. I was one of those originally enamored w it, because it's so freakin cheap but honestly you really do get what you pay for there....the ingredients are cheap and though you get a lot, it's really not very good. last time i got a chicken dish it was rubbery, grisly and just generally unappetizing...ugh. won't go back there unless i'm having a craving for greasy chicken fingers some day. that, they do well.

          2. Bamboo in Dedham is very good but they don't deliver.
