The delectable dishes on the extensive menu are prepared with today’s tastes and health concerns in mind. T.S. Ma uses only the freshest ingredients with absolutely no canned vegetables. Every dish is prepared and cooked with cholesterol and trans-fat free Canola oil, resulting in 50 percent less saturated fat intake while still maintaining its delicious and authentic flavor. Chef Thomas Ma opened T. S. Ma and began serving his fresh, healthy and authentic Chinese cuisine in an intimate and inviting setting in Upper Montclair with subdued lighting, soothing earth tones and framed Chinese artifact. Healthy dining is beneficial to everyone, but particularly those who cope with medical conditions. Thomas is well known for customizing his fresh and flavorful cuisine to suit his customer’s dietary needs. The T.S. Ma menu is known for having a wide selection of healthy and tasty dishes, including a wide assortment of Fresh Chinese vegetables. Their dishes are prepared the way you like them… steamed, grilled or plain sautéed with fresh garlic and ginger. With its emphasis on absolutely fresh vegetables, T.S. Ma’s menu is a goldmine for vegetarians. As they constantly strive to improve their menu, Thomas recently made an adjustment to use wheat-free soy sauce, to better serve customers looking for gluten-free options. Authentic is another word that Thomas Ma takes seriously. He recommends some truly authentic Shanghai dishes on his menu. The Shanghai meatballs, which are slow-cooked for four hours in a savory brown sauce and last, but not least, Pork Ribs braised in the chef’s brown sauce, are all time favorite Shanghai style dishes. Don’t leave without trying some of the House specials.

Rare Gem in Montclair

I happened to be working on project near the neighborhood and it is too late to drive back to NY for dinner. I stop by this restaurant and ordered dinner with my coworker. I have my reservation at first and to my surprise, the food is really good, especially their General Tso's Chicken. The portions are generous, the place is clean, and the waiter/waitresses are very courteous. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Incredible experience

Best Chinese food I Ever had. Quality is A+ and very clean setting. You can taste the freshness and they don't use a whole lot of oil. The flavor is powerful without overpowering the decadence. I highly recommend this restaurant as I drive out of my way to get there because it's that good. T.S. Ma comes chad approved.
