We had the chef speciality - hunan chicken and house pad tai and Phoenix soup. It was so so. The pad Tai tasted more Chinese than Thai and the soup was too diluted for a creamy soup. Service is good and the restaurant is located in a quaint area but food is less than satisfactory

Thank Sheana C
Management response:

Sheana, I'm sorry to hear the food wasn't to your satisfaction, and I only wish we'd known at the time so we could have done something to make things right for you. I hope you'll give us the chance to show you a better time in the future. Best, Alan, Owner More

Add another good eating spot in Norton Commons. Excellent, courteous and fast service. Hot and Sour soup passed the Asian food litmus test with just enough spicy kick. The schezuan (sp?) green beans were cooked just right - seemed extra fresh and still had some crunchy snap to them. Next time I'll ask for them to be made more spicy... More

The meal was outstanding, the restaurant was clean and peaceful. The service was great and the prices were reasonable and the menu was large. Very enjoyable.

Had been here many times but a year or so ago we had a terrible meal, and bad service. We avoided the restaurant since; however, went back Christmas Day at the invite of friends, and am happy to report the food was wonderful...again. 7 of us all had different dishes, and each was very good. Coming back was a pleasant... More

This is a great Chinese spot located in the Stepfordesque community of Norton Commons. Although they've dramatically raised their prices this year, the food is still cheaper and better tasting than PF Changs. Seriously, the hot & sour soup is fantastic. I usually go for the Spicy Beef or Kung Pao chicken with a side of their spring rolls. I... More

Management response:

I'm really glad you think we're that good! Thank you for the compliments and for leaving us some feedback on areas we might be able to improve. I'm sorry if the portion sizes seem to be decreasing, though, and I'll look into that, because as far as I know that shouldn't be happening. Thank you again! Best, Alan, Owner More

There must be better dishes than what we had because the restaurant was full. Nice ambience and non-traditional decor which is nice. The best thing by far we had were the egg rolls. They were filled full and we're still nice and crispy. However, we had 3 not so great dishes. The General Tso's chicken had bad cuts of meat... More

This is great Chinese food. We've been Tea Station regulars for years. Very few restaurants can execute such an expansive menu so well so consistently. I've eaten Chinese food all over the United States including in some of the largest China-towns in the country. I always come home with respect for Tea Station. They've recently added sushi, which is some... More

This is not by any means the fast food Chinese that everyone is used to. This is real Chinese food that fresh made and taste way better than the fast food Chinese places could even think of cooking. The service was a little slow, but the quality of the food made up for it

This place is very small. It has a full bar, an extensive sushi menu (which we don't utilize) and a nice American Chinese menu. I'm not sure if there is a "secret" Chinese menu, but if so, they don't offer it to everyone. We had some pan fried dumplings, which were very good, and served with a good (if slightly... More

Very disappointed in the quality of the food. Had the bourbon chicken too spicy, rice had no taste. We have been wanting to try this restaurant heard it was good, guess they were having a off night.
