Happened to be in Somerville last week and figured I'd give them a try. Had both the sesame chicken and the mushi beef. Both were loaded with flavor and very hardy portions. Definitely recommend.

They took the trouble to find us a lovely table. Then, there was the smiling service, efficient and unobtrusive. And the food was superb, by itself 5 stars - a surprisingly ample selection of vegetarian offering. In spite of the construction on Beacon well worth the 2-block March.

This place was described to me as "more authentic than your typical suburban Chinese place." I'm not Chinese, but the food was fresher, tastier, and different than other places. And as other reviewers had noted, there did seem to be a large number of Chinese people dining there. The place is not really big, but they were able to seat... More

I only wish Zoe's had an outpost back home! The menu is full of delicious but different options. You should definitely try the Chines okra with bamboo mushrooms. But everything we ordered tasted great. Much authentic than the typical American Chinese restaurant. All served in a very modern and pleasant room. Excellent service to boot.

Ate dinner at Zoe's after doing grocery shopping at the Star Market across the street. A great way of combining errands with eating out (as well as justifying leaving our car parked in the supermarket parking lot:). We ordered "vegetarian ravioli," sea scallops sautéed in garlic sauce, and frozen bean curd with fresh mushrooms. The "ravioli," aka jiaozi or dumplings,... More

We tried to go to Pho & Rice, but they were closed. Tried this place instead-- the food was pretty good and the atmosphere was clean and bright. We'd go again.

Zoe's is one of our favorites for take out Chinese. The portions sizes are good and the food is always tasty. We like to ask for recommendations but some of our go to dishes include their steamed fish w/vegetables, cumin spicy beef, and wide flat noodles with chicken or shrimp. We've eaten onsite a few times and the service was... More

I like this place. They have excellent soups and food. I am not from China but I see a lot of Chinese people come to the restaurant which makes me think is pretty authentic.

We did take-out (actually, they deliver). Discount for cash. Excellent quality. The eggplant w/ garlic sauce was a little greasy and not enough garlic, but the Lamb w/ scallions was perfect. Dumpling filling more flavorful than most, but the wrappers a little thick.

The take out here is great- best Chinese food in town. Never greasy, always fresh. I've never had a bad dish here.
