I grew up in Boston and my family would often go out for Chinese food for a special occasion. China Harbor reminds me of those restaurants from the 1980's. American Chinese food has evolved quite a bit so the food at China Harbor suffers by...More

What is with the diamond-plate front steps? That seems like a safety hazard to me, they are surprisingly slick in the rain. Surprised health department allows that! If you live through the steps getting in and out, you will have wasted your money unless you...More
