    Arrived around 7 PM on a Friday night to a light and lively restaurant. Seated right away at a spacious and comfortable table. Our waiter was super helpful with the expansive menue-- so many choices and me not all that familiar with Asian cuisine. We ended up getting the Kung ping chicken and Spicy hunan beef. Very happy with the selections. Generous quantities. Next day we enjoyed the leftovers chilling on a sunny bench at the Public Gardens. A big thumbs up for Jimmy Tse's. Great food. Great service and nice-off the-beaten path of Hanover Street (North End). Go there!!

    This is the place where everybody knows are our names, and we run into friends often. I go there because my BF lives nearby, but even friends from other neighborhoods ask that we meet at Billy's. Excellent portions and an extensive menu make it a favorite. The sushi is very good!!! They also are willing to modify dishes to make them healthier, steaming veggies and putting sauces on the side. The bartenders and wait staff are friendly and professional. We get better service here than in some high-end places! We are so glad this place exists.

    Yup - and it's great! Some of the best I've had in Boston. The sushi was excellent and my companion's Chinese was remarkable. Really the best Asian restaurant within walking distance of the Financial District. I'll definitely go back!

    Used to go to Billy Tse's all the time, but hadn't been in awhile since moving out of the city. Was back in town and in the mood for sushi, and Billy'Tse's was as good as ever. Went on a Monday night and everything was fresh & tasty, the service was prompt, and the Maitais were wonderful!. Not a super fancy place, but excellent food & service in a relaxed atmosphere within walking distance of the NE Aquarium and Quincy Market.

  • Always fun at Billy Tse's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/7/2014
    I've been going to the North End location Billy Tse's since they opened and have never been disappointed. We recently introduced our nephew to the restaurant; lucky for us, Billy was in and came to our table to say hello. The boneless spareribs are excellent (when we do takeout, we always get two orders), entrees of Sweet and Sour Duck and Beef Chow Foon were very good; I was not a fan of the Cripsy Aromatic Scrod, but nephen loved it. The mai tais are always good.

    Indicated gluten friendly but only offered one option-steamed vegetables. Didn't have GF soy sauce or other options. Disappointing. A lot of other dining options in Boston. Won't be back.

    As usual the food was excellent. Freshly prepared and not oily. Waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Billy came by to say hello as he often does Norttend is not just for Italian food.

    I love Billy Tse. It's my favorite chinese food restaurant ever. They have such fresh food and their crab rangoons are to die for. I went for my birthday with a group of 8 and they handeled it very well. We all left very very happy.

    The food at Billy Tse's was good, though not spectacular. My major complaint was with the weak and I attentive service. On two occasions, I had to remind my server (who rarely came by our table) that an item I had order had not arrived.

    We were visiting Boston on a family vacation, had been eating a lot of North End Italian, and wanted a change so we found Billy Tse's nearby. It's somewhat hidden in a residential area of the North End, so the patrons are likely locals. The ambiance inside was OK but not special. The menu was very lengthy, and covered not only Chinese staples, but also Thai and Japanese-style dishes. Our Chinese dishes were prepared well, but the Thai dish missed the mark. It seemed to be made by a Chinese chef, in that it used Thai flavorings and spices but it was more Chinese in appearance and style (thickened sauce, etc.). Overall a worthwhile Chinese restaurant, modestly priced, and seemingly the only Chinese/Asian option in this neighborhood.

    Great local restaurant hiding among about a hundred italian places in the North End. Billy Tse himself was present and overseeing things, he's a very pleasant and professional guy. Sushi good! Service attentive. Food overall great, not typical takeout chinese food quality - a cut above. Although we discovered that they do takeout and delivery on this visit, so this became our go-to Chinese/sushi delivery place just like that! We'd bring guests from out of town back to the restaurant, too.

    This night at Billy's was not up to their usual standards. Dishes were cold and over salted. THe service was also weak- with ordered drinks not arriving at all.
