We went for a birthday lunch and is was excellent. We have lived in Boston many years and have never been to this restaurant. Do go there if in Boston. It is near the North End.

Want Chinese? Check. Want Thai? Check. Want sushi? Check. Yes, there are even dishes labeled Vietnamese and Singaporean, but truly you are likely to go there for the large selection of Chinese stir-fries and noodle dishes. If you are tired of seafood and/or Italian in...More

Was at Intercontinental Boston and asked if Asian restaurants delivered to hotel. The concierge recommended Billy Tse's. Two nights during our stay we called for delivery and everything was done as requested, and in the time frame promised. We tried spring rolls, egg drop soup...More

We asked the concierge at out hotel (The Intercontinental ) for a good sushi spot within walking distance. He suggested Billy Tse's, noting...it does not look like much, but the fish is spectacular. He was spot on. The restaurant is smallish with little decoration, but...More

It is a small place but lovingly run by the owner. The food is terrific: Peking Duck, Wok Roasted Lobster at a fraction of what you would pay at a fine dining Chinese. This joint was so good I ate there twice and the bill...More

This pan Asian in the North End was recommended by our concierge. The California maki barely had any crab artificial or otherwise and the shrimp tempura was greasy and the vegetables were undercooked. This place is mediocre at best. Very disappointing.

I was very surprised by the poor food after reading positive reviews. Restaurant was clean, service was fine, but food was greasy and bland. Will not return. It was probably our fault for going for Chinese in the North End.

On the edge of the famous north end, Billys is awesome It has to be by far the best chinese food Ive ever had. The quality and freshness of the food is superior and hard to beat.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
