Chang An- Concord, MA

I've never eaten at Chang An and would welcome reviews. I can't get a group to come to Chinatown in Boston and this place is the compromise. The person who recommened Chang An is not experienced in Chinese cuisine,but he lives in Concord and seems to like it.

  1. It's decent, mostly Americanized Chinese food. I'd say that it is one of your better options in the Bedford/Concord/Acton area, but don't expect Chinatown-quality authentic Chinese food there.

    1. I think nearby Ginger Court on 2Rt A in Acton is better than Chang An. You might want to consider Asiana Bistro on Rt 4 in Bedford. It is pan Asian. I have only eaten there a few times because it is new and I no longer live in Bedford. The first time was a Chinese banquet arranged by a Chinese colleague which I thought was very good. The second time was with a friend who wanted red curry chicken which we really enjoyed and I asked them to make a vegetable pan fired noodles which were also very tasty.

        Ginger Court may be a tad better but they both are lousy restaurants. Better to head to Sichuan Gourmet in Billerica or Bamboo in Bedford or Westford (Americanized but better than average).

      2. Nothing special, it used to be a lot better. The owner is a jerk, too.

        1. Always thought it was ordinary American-Chinese with high prices.

          Bamboo in Burlington gets good marks for Am-Chinese. They are near 62 and the road to Sun Microsystems.

          Different but tasty is New Jang Su Korean BBQ in Burlington on Cambridge St.

            I second the recommendation on New Jang Su Korean BBQ. And soon H-Mart will open and give us more options!

          2. Chang An is really pretty lousy and EXTREMELY bland. I second the suggestion to go to Sichuan Gourmet in Billerica. I also love Chilli Garden in Medford. Me, I am finally trying Fuloon this weekend!

            Of course if your friend thinks chinese food is Chang An you might consider going out for burgers instead!

              Chili Garden is pretty good. There is also the Korean BBQ restaurant next to it that I hear is good but haven't tried yet. It's on the TO-DO list...
