I had a hankering for congee and dim sum on a work day and ambled over to Great Taste on Beach street (close to the Chinatown arch), and was not disappointed. It was my first visit to the restaurant side and ordered the pork congee...More

Stopped at the bakery to get a watermelon smoothie, coffee roll, coffee mousse and fruit custard tart. All were delicious and the bakery items come in a beautiful box.

Came here twice in 2 months to have more of their congee and dimsum items. What we ordered was flavorful and really hit the spot. The menu is extensive and you can hardly go wrong with any of their items. Most importantly, portions are generous...More

Can't wait to try again, as we were sat family style with 2 others, and whatever they ordered looked fabulous! We had 2 different noodle dishes, 1 with shrimp, 1 with chicken. Took home leftovers and had 2 more meals!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dim sum meal. And we are pretty picky. Satisfied me eating vegetarian and my husband eating pork and shrimp. This is a gem. Enjoy!

I saw another reviewer rave about the congee and I have to add my endorsement as well. Anywhere else, congee is assumed to be bland and tasteless. But at Great Taste, the congee is flavorful and soothing like a good homemade chicken soup. The staff...More

Very helpful waitstaff English seems weak but order came exactly as we expected. Very large portions so be careful not to over order. Very inexpensive. Large number of choices on menu. Food good but not exceptional. Hot & Sour soup very good; spicy as expected.
