Great Chow in Abington Has Closed

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a popular South Shore restaurant has shut down.

According to a source, Great Chow in Abington is no longer in business, apparently closing its doors over the past weekend, while a Facebook post from the place seems to confirm this. It is not known if they might look to reopen in a new location (our source says that this may be the case), though it does appears that the original Great Chow in Quincy's Wollaston neighborhood remains in operation.

The Abington location of Great Chow (which is also known as Great Chow 18) first opened approximately 10 years ago, offering mostly Chinese and Japanese fare, including sushi and teppenyaki items; the Quincy location has been in business for more than 20 years.

The address for this now-closed Asian restaurant in Abington is: Great Chow, 497 Bedford Street (Route 18), Abington, MA, 02351. The website for the remaining location in Quincy can be found at

[April 3 update: According to a couple of sources (including a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page), a sign out front says that Great Chow is being replaced by an "Italian restaurant and sushi bar."]
