Billy Tse's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Seriously ice was quick and welcoming. Steak tataki could've been cut into smaller pieces so they were easier to chew and swallow. Very tasty though. The MaPo Tofu had good flavor, but even though I'd asked for extra spicy, it ended up being less spicy than even the tataki seasoning. If it was spicier, it would've been top notch. Next time I'll make sure they throw in a bucketload of spice!
I picked this restaurant out of Yelp (it had good ratings) and it was a reasonable drive from our hotel. We were going out with vegetarian friends who wanted to eat Chinese and the menu offered an ideal mix. We enjoyed our dinner in a quiet surrounding. The food was good, not too greasy with great flavor. The servers were courteous and service was good. Overall, we had a good mea and a good time.
We visited before we were going to a Bruins game. It was a very good choice. Convenient, yet enough off the beaten path that it was very relaxed. Service was very friendly and the noodles and sushi were both very good. The value was great. We will definitely return.
Billy Tse's is gratefully located in the North End along the harbor. It brings much needed culinary diversity to the neighborhood. They have some creative rolls and unique takes on many Chinese dishes. There is a basic beer list, a few extravagant cocktails, and a good sake menu. We recommend starting with some sushi rolls then splitting a few main dishes (large portions) for dinner. Enjoy!
When we entered the restaurant, the host refused to sit us despite out presentation of an open table reservation (which they later said they had). He tried to suggest that they did not take reservations for parties of 2 during the holiday week. He tried to sit us on bar stools in the bar area, even though there were plenty of tables in the restaurant that he said were "reserved", but apparently not for us!
Not to be picky, or nit-picky, but there are so many other better choices for Asian food than Billy Tse's. We wanted to try this place to have something out of the ordinary in the North End, and while the menu is vast and relatively affordable, the food was just ho-hum, lacking distinct flavor. The plus was that I figured out I could vastly improve the flavor of my fried rice/scallop dish by adding in the sauce liquid from the appetizer. The one positive was that Billy himself came to greet us mid-meal, and I imagine this place was pretty great at one time, but he's probably overseeing bigger and better culinary projects, and the food has this suffered in his namesake restaurant.
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.
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.
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.
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.
