I was skeptical at first. In my opinion, Chinese food in the mostly Italian North End section of Boston was very questionable. I was pleasantly surprised by Billy Tse's delicious sushi, appetizers, and entrees. I ordered the Vegetarian's Delight and was surprised by the heaping helping of vegetables and rice that arrived on my plate. I think I finished maybe a fifth of what was there. They also let the patrons pick and choose what they want in their meal, so don't be afraid to ask for "no mushrooms" or "not too spicy" here. They always happily complete any request.
My boyfriend has been addicted to Billy Tse ever since we tried it. He orders takeout and sushi from there on an almost weekly basis and loves it!
The service in the restaurant is very good, friendly and efficient. Takeout delivery is usually delivered in the area within 30 minutes by a polite delivery person.
