Susan B. asks:
I am craving good, quality Chinese food and I have no idea where to go in Boston/Allston/Brookline. Any suggestions?
Sichuan Garden in Brookline Village (on Washington next to gym).
Shanghai Gate in Allston (Harvard/Comm Ave next to Dunkin Donuts).
But just stay away from Lucky Wah on Beacon St. Unless you plan on sleeping or pooping for the next 12 hours, I'd stay away.
Brianne Hill says Golden Temple in Washington Square, Brookline.
Bschwartz suggests Shanghai Gate in Allston.
James Whitters is partial to Dragon Star in Coolidge Corner.
Michael Ferraro recommends New Hong Kong in Oak Square - except for the pad thai.
Beatriz Roman recommends Mandarin Gourmet in South Brookline.
is actually in Washington Square in Brookline (I lived behind it).
But I agree that if you like American style greasy Chinese Food, Dragon Star is the place to go. Fantastic Lobster sauce and shrimp lunch special.
