    I used to think that Portland didn't have a decent Chinese deli-restaurant in town until I came here. It's the best bowl of wontons that you can get. The BBQ pork is always most, tender, and savory (perfect when sitting in the broth and combined with egg noodles). Their salted chicken, roast duck, and spare ribs are fantastic. Roasted pork is usually very moist and tasty too. If you're going for some congee, the roast duck and the prawns are my favorite variety. They have killer breakfast specials before 10am, most being $3 or so.

    Can I just brag first that my family and the owners are very good family friends?! I LOVE Good Taste. It's definitely authentic Hong Kong noodle soup food. I would say it's like the chinese version of PHO and does the job RIGHT on those very tired (hungover?) weekend mornings. Pretty much everything is served super hot and deliciously quick, but they are known for the wonton, roast duck and beef noodle soups. I've been going here ever since I can remember, before they even had the 82nd location!

    I've only tried the duck wonton soup so far, and it was great. I think a good bowl of soup should have different flavors with every bite, and this hit the mark. The duck was also super tasty! I will definitely be back to try some of their other dishes.

    Abalone congee for $6.50; really a legit specialty and super tasty. Perfect for the winter weather. Free tea. Clean space. Fresh bbq items available, including pork, chicken, and duck. Large sized wontons with actual pieces of shrimp, not minced. Saw the employees in back making them fresh in front of my eyes! Overall a great establishment for some Cantonese style favorites. Will definitely come back.

    Serves awesome wonton soup in a huge bowl of delectable broth, vegetables, and noodles! What more could you want for $5.50?

    A well named restaurant, it has good taste, and it's a noodle house. Shrimp wonton noodle soup with chili sauce -AWESOME and priced appropriately on the cheap side. Get that every time, and have had many others, all chicken dishes are fresh and well flavored. Their lack of decor is the decor, it's a noodle house, no pomp and circumstance, and not in a "hey this is really a chinese restaurant, we swear to god" kind of way. Yum!! And while you're there save room to go next door to brothers for a kickas crawfish boil and best cornbread ever (call to make sure they have 'em) !

    Would have been 5 stars, but, I've been in a few times and they've been out of their delicious roast pork and duck.... Now, that out of the way, this place makes some fantastic food. I'm sure there are some other great things on the menu, but now I go straight for the roast pork or roast duck wonton noodle soup. The broth is absolutely transcendent, the roasted meats yummy, and the house-made wontons are large, succulent and packed with flavor from the ground pork and shrimp chunks filling the wrappers. Forget the notion of the typical crappy wontons found in most typical, crappy Chinese places, these are satisfying on every level, and come in just the right quantity to make a wonderful meal for only seven bucks. The roasted meats come in other configurations, with rice, with noodles, etc. But I think the wontons here are the thing to go with and can't recommend them highly enough. I know they are house made because when I went in late one night last year, they were filling and wrapping them on one of the empty tables in the dining room. Nice!!!!!

    So over the past some odd years that this establishment has been open, I've come and go once in a while .. But the last time I went to Good Taste (last week) it left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. My friend and I were grabbing a quick bite during our lunch breaks .. We ordered beef fried rice and Singapore noodles that took over FORTY minutes to come out. Not to mention the lady working in the front was rude and also wouldn't give us the proper utensils + soy sauce for our meals to go. + NEGATIVE STARS for sneezing onto a dish and still serving it to customers. (My friend and I witnessed this because we waited so freaking long for our food.) All said and done, I will never been seen at this restaurant ever again.

    Noodle shop w/family meal deals! I'm not a huge fan of wonton soup so i rarely go out of my way to eat at a place that specialize in it. However, i must admit they do have the most succulent duck there! I'm a huge duck eater and will go about anywhere to get some. I normally order their family meal for two and will change my entree and etc for an additional $1. I believe a meal for two is around $25 (or less) and you can get pretty full. I usually get the meal with wonton soup, Chinese broccoli, pepper salted shrimp and roasted duck and roasted pork. The only con about their meal is you have to ask them to warm up your roasted duck/pork because they serve it really cold. I don't know if its typical of Chinese to eat it cold, but my preference is my food gotta be hot so the juice will ooze out of it...so yummy! The service isn't that great, but like most small family owned Chinese restaurants, majority of their wait staff don't speak fluent English so its hard for them to speak to me, unless I'm Chinese. However, they do come by to fill up my water, that's better than most places. Its an inexpensive place to eat if you're looking to get full with simple fare.

    Late Thursday trip to get some traditional chinese food. The beef chow fun was decent, though the beef could have been a little more tender. The wonton soup was really good, with about 12 huge wontons for only $5.50. Nice big pieces of shrimp in each. It was almost closing time, so they were out of their fresh meats like crispy pork and bbq pork, but I've had them before and it's pretty good, almost as good as NYC Chinatown. Overall, excellent traditional Chinese food at very low prices.

    We love this place, it's like a regular restaurant for our family. My 9 yo son likes the Special House fried rice, my 7 yo son like the beef rice noodle, my youngest and my husband loves the noodle. Me?? I love everything, specially wonton soup. And the best thing is, the price is good!!! You've gotta try this place...

    13.00 dollars for two people. SO cheap. The food is "meh" My mom had the wonton, and she said it was good. I had this "spicy meat sauce noodle"- wasnt very spicy nor good. I mean they specialize in wonton/dumpling. So get wonton noodle soup. Dont get congee, it is just water+ msg+ meat pieces.

    I really REALLY wanted to love this. I was absolutely drooling as I read over the menu. I got the Super Bowl A. How could I not: BBQ pork, roast pork, roast duck, won ton noodle soup. Yeah. All of the meat was pretty-good-not-great. But the won tons and broth were both lacking some flavor. This isn't a deal breaker, I still liked the soup. Maybe next time, I'll skip the soup and get the meat on some noodles.

    We've been coming here for awhile and feel the quality of food had been slowly declining ever since they opened up the new vancouver location. Their wontons are not as good as they used to be. I had hoped that they would pick themselves up and out of the funk, but does not like its going to.

    we just went today because i was swayed by the good reviews and i was home sick for Hong Kong. here's what we ordered: Won ton noodles BBQ pork with fried eggs over rice Curry Beef Brisket the wonton noodles were great. not too oily, and the wontons were excellent. great value for $5.5 BBQ pork w/eggs were very good. great taste and a huge portion. i would recommend this simple but tasty dish to anyone. the curry beef brisket looked horrible, BUT it tasted good. however after 1/3 in it was just too oily. worst dish of the bunch, and it brought the score down. all in all it was a good place to eat, service was good, and food came fast. price was great so all in all, it gets 4 stars. i'm not sure if this was normal practice but at the end she all but refused my tips. SO, with the great portion size, good taste, and no need for tips... it was a great experience.

    I honestly believe that both locations, the one in Chinatown and the one here are going down hill. Their roasted ducks aren't good anymore. It tasted like an old age duck. It's very fatty and the meat is tough. The roasted pork was just ok. The won ton soup was tasteless. The won ton is good, but the broth is tasteless. Oh, Good Taste, I miss the old you!

    Used to be great but seems when they changed owners the food is not the same. Still a good place for won ton noodle soup though

  • Kristina L.

    Decent wonton noodle soup: the soup broth is better than the actual wontons though. Also try the roast duck, roast pork, & BBQ pork.. Pepper salted squid isn't the best flavored, but it definitely seems to be the crunchiest & least oily I've had.

    Super bowel A and wonton noodle soup. The crispy pork is good along with the duck in the wonton noodle soup.

  • John S.

    I love this place. The roast pork is so tasty and the skin just crackles. Good Taste has solid service and is very consistant. The other reviews are spot on about the soup, its hard to order anything without the won-tons cuz they are so damn good. Cheap and fast.

    This is a very casual place to get some very good tasting lunch off 82nd. If they were to relocate to a restaurant it would make even better business. Yes, it's restaurant good with a casual diner feel sitting somewhere in between Seinfeld and...wait, I lost myself there. Ahem!! If I were to critique one small iota ( wiki that one with your auto-magic(yes I stole that word too)) it would be the yelper that put up the picture of the larve or maggot that was in her soup. Yes, this place calls for an episode of "dirty dining." Then I will be right back there ordering up some more pepper salted squid or crunchy chow mien or that duck hanging in the window who isn't having a good day....let's see...lost myself again...So until that episode of dirty dining clears it with the health inspector I will be wandering like that guy in "Kung Fu" who likes hotel closets and the last loop on his belt buckle. Yes there are plenty more places in this city deserving of my stars. And I'm going to find them and yelp the s@#% out if them too....

    I had the wonton noodle soup with roast pork at the 82nd Ave location and it was awesome! The decor and wait staff were exactly what you would expect, not great yet not the worse. It's the food that'll keep you coming back to a place like this!! I know I'll be back.

    Clean and spacious, good selection of food. I ordered steamed chicken and bbq pork over rice for lunch. Large portions with plenty of rice and baby bok choy. The ginger and garlic sauce for the steamed chicken was very good, the chicken was nothing to rave about, but the bbq pork was fantastic - succulent and flavorful, not too salty, and not overcooked. I may come back and try other dishes.

    Ok i have to update my review, the first time i went there i had the dumpling soup and yeah it wasn't spectacular but i had the wonton the other day. phenomenal. I also have had other dishes and they were pretty good. so i've got to up it from just an average place to above average. though the service during lunch sucks ass.

    During a search for a coworker's going away lunch I was reminded of this place by it's West Side Sister joint. In the past, this place always fills me up and left me wanting to come back to try something new. Even though I'm not a fan of Chinese noodles, I really liked the food here. Today though, I was fairly disappointed, mainly by the service. We had a huge order for 6 people (about 9 dishes) because we always like taking some home. No matter how polite we were or how much we thanked her for filling the drinks, accommodating more people, or bringing more dishes the hostess always seemed annoyed at us, especially when she reluctantly packed the food for us. When I was paying (and putting down a hefty tip for the fairly quick albeit a little nasty service we received) I couldn't help but compliment her on the food as it really was tasty. She almost scoffed and nearly rolled her eyes at me. I really did want to just scratch out the tip and let it be, but I'm just not like that. I think that's probably the last time I take my friends to that place, as it seems like it's just not a place that appreciates your patronage.

    They have the best wonton soup in the city, period. I've tried a lot of different places and this place gets it right. The broth is flavorful, although a bit salty. The noodle are great. All the different meat options are always packed with flavor. It comes served with the only kind of veggie I want in my wonton soup, bok choy. But what sets it apart is the wonton themselves. They are perfectly cooked balls of pork and shrimp encapsulated in a noodle of appropriate thickness. Get the super bowl A, add in some hot pepper oil and hoisin sauce, and enjoy it. Don't like wonton? Well they have other options I enjoy too. All their noodle dishes are great and they have great special family menu options. All their meats are flavorful and one order gets you a generous amount. Do I have anything bad to say about Good Taste. Well, yes. Far too often they run out of their best meats before dinner time. I can't tell you how many times I've gone craving some duck or roast pork only to have them tell me they're out. And also, the service leaves much to be desired sometimes. But that's just nitpicking and certainly doesn't stop me from enjoying their food.

    Great food! OK service but I am a white guy and they cater more to Asians. Fair pricing! I recommend to any for lunch or dinner. note though that they are not open late.

    When I lived in Portland, I would drive from either Northwest or the Goose Hollow area to eat here or at the many pan-Asian eateries on 82nd/in Southeast. Any dish with the flat egg noodles was so good that it almost made me want to cry after I ate. I took my mom here when she helped me move out the first time, and she loved it. I miss this place a lot, and have never found another place like it since.

    Awesome Chinese Noodle House, The prices are dirt cheap, and the quality tastes like your in HK or Mainland China.

  • Lee C.

    There's one in Hillsboro now and it is very good. Their hot and sour soup is unlike that found anywhere. I have yet to have anything unsatisfactory (but I know enough to stay away from naturally greasy food anyhow). And the service is always excellent. Good Taste Noodle House has, moreover, the respect and attendance of its best competitor, the owner of Stir Crazy in Aloha.

    For those southern californias looking for a "Sam Woo" style substitute this place is a great choice. In no way does it rival the SGV choices but it's about as good (taste and ambiance) as it's going to get in P-town.

    downtown main store is slightly better :)

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
