We were here during the 2010 conference and so made our way back again. Very authentic Chinese food.

Pretty average, I did not try their seafood, but from what I ordered, there's nothing too special about the food. It's convenient because it's right next to the hotel I was staying.

This dinner was excellent. I had the chicken with green beans and the house special fried rice. Our service was excellent. The food was excellent and I hope I can return before I leave to return home from this vacation. All of the food served to my party of three looked great and they said it was excellent.

The family dinner was delicious and provided enough food for five meals. Each dish was spiced just right-not bland, but not heat for the sake of obscuring the food, Service was pleasant but dishes appeared in no particular order. We will definitely be back.

The food here is really really good. I ordered the mince meat soup and the spinach and beef. Both were really, really delicious. The soup was piping hot and full of meet and veggies. The beef was very tender - there was plenty of it and the spinach was nice and fresh All in all a great meal

Awesome restaurant to go to if you have a big group for the convention. You can work with the staff and customize the menu depending on the budget. Very tasty and the food comes out quickly. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

We've been eating here about once per year for the past twenty years. Service is always very good, and they have a huge Chinese menu. Unlike some Chinese/Vietnamese restaurants, Bo Town is very spacious. Our favorites are the honey walnut prawns, orange chicken, and green beans

The menu is interesting & they do a good job with food preparation. I've been here a few times and have not been disappointed. It's not fancy & the presentation is very simple. I haven't order anything too exotic so I can't comment of the more unusual dishes. Service is efficient and helpful and the kitchen is busy. Their location... More
