A word from Myers + Chang
Myers + Chang is a funky indie diner setting offering Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers's very personal interpretation of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese specialties. At Myers + Chang, we focus on sourcing fresh, beautiful, local-when-possible ingredients, using lighter sauces, and giving you either fun and innovative takes on classic dishes, or creating new dishes that stay true to the flavors of the region.



We are inspired by Taiwanese soul food and Southeast Asian street food, all done with a great deal of care. It is a personal, sometimes loose interpretation, to be sure, but our criteria are simple: everything we make must be fresh, delicious, and addictive. We are passionate about sharing our love of this food with you.

Diner Reviews
  • "Its a great place where you get rounds of food and drinks for hours (if you want) and share it all family style. NO pressure to leave or finish up to clear the table for others. We were there for 3 hours and feasted. Drinks are delicious too, though they seem a bit weak to me. Amazing for groups."

  • "It was just "ok". Food took a long time, service very slow. Eggplant was bland in flavor. Chicken and scallion pancake dish was dry. Waffle would have been better..."

  • "As always, Myers + Chang hit it out of the park with their wonderful lunch. The Thai Iced tea was delicious, my chicken with bok choy and noodles was plentiful and tasty, and they even had a printed vegetarian menu to offer my friend! Wonderful, warm, friendly place, with a great vibe."

  • "Delicious but a little pricey. Everything was really good. The prices were a little ridiculous though."

  • "So we love Myers and Chang. It is ALWAYS fabulous food. We have eaten here many times and never had any issues so this must have been a "one-off". We had several dishes (tofu/pork dish is phenomenal and broccoli bites are to die for) and several drinks (wine...husband had a great IPA Innocence). Our service was terrible for some reason. She forgot about us (I think). It took way to long to get our drinks and then she never came back. We were sitting there with all of our food with no drinks...not even water. I finally had to ask another server about our drinks...that is when things turned ugly. Our server then became very rude...she would just plop things down in front of us without saying a word. Great food but terrible service."

  • "Our family is a big fan of Joanne Chang's cookbooks and Flour so we just had to come and we were not disappointed. The staff was welcoming and very pleasant. Out server was attentive and very helpful with ordering and the food.... delicious!! We will be back."

  • "Service was excellent and very friendly, food was overall delicious - special highlights were the braised beef bao and the shrimp dumplings with the kimchee mayo yumyum."

  • "Myers and Chang has never disappointed. One of the best restaurants in Boston. They keep the menu fresh, we always find something new and fun to eat (with amazing flavor) every time we visit. Thanks for your consistency!"

  • "Great experience here - many of the dishes were top notch. Octopus, salmon tartare, pork belly buns were terrific. Joanne Chang herself came to our table to wish us happy anniversary and gave us dessert - just a great experience all around"

  • "Myers + Chang had been on my list of restaurants to try out ever since it was opened, but it took a while for me to get there. But the wait - and the trip - was well worth it. We ordered the braised pork belly buns (excellent, great balance of flavors), pork and chive dumplings (very good, well fried but could use a bit more seasoning), and the rainbow trout with coconut rice (nuanced flavors, tomato jam isn't all together necessary). The service was great, and we even got a chance to see the owners pop in and bustle around the restaurant."

  • "The food was just fantastic - excellent starters, mains, and food, and the drinks were great too. The place was rather loud, which can prove difficult, but it was a Friday night, so we were prepared to deal with it. Overall, great place! We definitely want to go back again!"

  • "Best dumplings we have ever had, also don't miss the fried rice, very spicy....leave room for dessert, lemon mousse is amazing, can't wait to go back"

  • " The bartender was amazing. She was so friendly and although busy she took time to explain the menu and give us her recommendations of what not to miss. At her suggestion we started with a carafe of summer sangria. It was perfectly balanced and a fresh way to start the night. My dinner companions moved on to the bloodlust margaritas. They were amazing, full of flavor and perfectly complemented by a sriracha salt rim. We were served some complimentary asian pickles to whet our appetites and before long were seated at a table for four alongside the open kitchen. We decided to eat family style. We tried the lemony shrimp and pork and chive dumplings,Szechwan Shrimp, crispy whole fish and Indonesian rice. Everything was wonderful."

  • "The food was creative and delicious. The only dish (out of four mains and two desserts) that we didn't enjoy was the Lemony Prawn Dumplings. The prawns had a "dirty water" tinge to their flavor that completely detracted from anything good about the dish; wish we'd have chosen the Pork and Chive Dumplings instead. The Pork Belly Bao and Stuffed Trout were both amazing. The creative non-alcoholic drinks were so tempting that we didn't order anything with liquor, and we didn't miss it! The atmosphere was unique (in a great way!) and the service fantastic. I'd highly recommend this restaurant for anyone willing to try something new."

  • "went here with people from atlanta and their two small children.....staff could not have been friendlier, food was extraordinary one dish after another....make sure to get tea smoked ribs and pan fried dumplings! each dish was different, creative and delicious, whether it was rice or noodle dishes.....i highly recommend this place"

  • "The ambiance was very nice, the waitstaff and the cooks were extremely friendly and accommodating, and the food was unique and delicious. Overall a great experience! I like their open kitchen, so you can watch them tossing food in their big woks, grilling things, etc... The cooks were very nice about talking to me or explaining something if I asked any questions about what they were doing. I also got a free carrot and farro salad as a "gift", but that was the only dish that I didn't think tasted very good. The octopus and green papaya slaw were great! Only donwside was my waitress. Very friendly, but I don't know if she was trying or if she cared very much. She gave me the wrong check at the end, and I had to get up to ask her for my own."

  • "Found most of the food delicious. That's why will try again. Very early reservation on Sunday. But took a while to get water, etc. It appeared that most staff were in a meeting. Ordered several items and were advised that they came out as they were done. Wasn't an issue until the final two items - and appetizer and an entree - which arrived nearly 30 minutes after everything else. And the stuffed calamari (appetizer delivered 30 minutes after everything else) was almost like eating shoe leather. We finally gave up and just ate the stuffing. When I mentioned it to the waitress, she did ask if I wanted something else, but after such a long wait, we said no. Didn't want to wait another 30 minutes. If she had removed it from my check ..."

  • "The service was extraordinary--my sister has allergies which she did not mention right at the start of ordering and they bent over backwards to make sure nothing had peanuts in it. Everyone was so friendly and fun and super attentive. The food is fantastic...every small dish we had was better than the last--each with a unique flavor and texture and taste. Really fun laid back atmosphere while having 5 star service and food--my idea of a perfect meal."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "From the moment you enter until the time you leave, this is a restaurant with a gracious, helpful staff serving delicious, cooked-to-order food that is willingly modified to meet personal dietary requirements. Take a moment to introduce yourself to chief/owner Joanne Chang or executive chief Karen Akunowicz; the conversation will enhance your dining experience. Recommendations are: hot and sour soup; pan-seared scallops; wok-charred curried duck; and dumplings."

  • "On a beautiful evening, on the tiny patio, with a kid's baseball game behind us in the park, we had a fine meal and service to match. The staff is charming and attentive, the octopus and corn and carrots with miso were super, and four of us with quite different tastes enjoyed everything we ordered, including the delicious summer sangria."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "There's no wonder it is so tough to get a reservation here! Although they lack a proper liquor license (so the drinking is not why one comes here), the food more than makes up for it. Inventive, flavorful Asian-inspired cuisine, some traditional, some not-so-much, all worth tasting, and served with impeccable care and attention. This is a perfect place for friends and family alike, though not really a great atmosphere (or food) for children. You'll leave feeling satisfied and eager to return. My favorite dishes are the dumplings, Dan-Dan Noodles, and Korean BBQ Sloppy Joe--YUM."

  • "Eclectic Asian fare meant to share tapas/appetizer-style...enjoyed the squid with stuffed lamb tremendously. We also recommend the udon noodles and the trout. Enjoyable time."

  • "We have to go back! It was 2 of us- we had started with 3 small plates- tea smoked pork ribs, hakka eggplant & kevin’s “old school” egg roll. We still wanted to try several other plates but were too full to go on. However, I still had room in the dessert section of my belly to try the coconut cream pie- oh my! Everything was delicious! The tea-smoked ribs were a little too smokey for our taste- but some people will love that. We want to return soon for the chicken and waffles!"

  • "I've been to Myers & Chang several times, the food is always phenomenal, and the drinks are delicious. Everything is fresh and tastes so good. My only complaint is on how long it takes to get your drink order. Every time I have been there, I have noticed how slow the waitstaff is in bringing your drink order. This most recent time our first round of drinks came out slow, some were soda drinks, others had alcohol in them, but when we ordered a second round of a few of the drinks, we had to ask twice for them. That shouldn't happen. We were seated right next to the bar, we were there for lunch, the restaurant was not crowded. I will definitely go back to Myers & Chang again, but I would love it if they could fix that issue."

  • "While the ribs and dan dan noodles were packed with flavor , the eggplant, and dumplings were lacking in our opinion."

  • "Myers and Chang has excellent food with unusual and extremely tasty combinations of various Asian foods. I have travelled extensively in Asia/SE Asia and the food here is really top notch. Definitely get a reservation ahead of time and go -- you will be very glad you did."

  • "We went here for the first time on Friday to try it out. The food was ok, though no better than other restaurants in the neighborhood with better ambience. The service was slow and the place was simply too small for our liking. It was very noisy and with the open kitchen, we found ourselves smelling many different types of food that didn't necessarily mix well. Additionally, their very limited cocktail list included a too sour Mai Tai and their limited bartender staff seemed to run out of Sangria (how does that happen by 8pm on a Friday?)"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We went for a special occasion and I left feeling like I had shouted the entire time. While the ambience was okay with a cute cross between diner and restaurant, the volume of the patrons and music made it hard to be heard. We loved our food and were surprised by how fast it arrived and yet how infrequently our waitress attended to us. It took 15 minutes to get her to get us the check. Given the difficulty for getting a reservation (1 mo in advance) and parking issues in that area we'll probably do take-out if we were to order again."

  • "The food was as beautiful to look at as it was to eat. Tigers tears....so good. Carrot and farro salad divine! Desserts decadent yet light and palate refreshing (especially vanilla bean ice cream with grapefruit granita). On a Saturday evening it was lively but we never felt rushed like so many other restaurants that are frantic to turn the table. A fun, delicious and relaxed experience. Highly recommended."

  • "I was taking a few coworkers out for dinner and we decided to try here. The night before the staff confirmed the reservations but had the wrong time and told me I was wrong. When they double checked I wad correct and barely received an apology for it. Food was very good but service was just oak and it was really hard to hear. Wouldn't rush back. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Very disappointing. Food was definitely subpar and not worth the expensive price. Service was slow and incompetent. Being a huge fan of flour, I thought this place would have decent chinese food, but in fact, it's worse than most chinese places in Boston. Probably on par with Mary Chung's in Central."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The food had really interesting combinations, and the service was so great, our waiter was very helpful and we loved his positive attitude and general sense that he loved to work there. The cocktails were excellent as well! I will definitely be back!"
