This has become our favorite asian place in Appleton. The calamari appetizer is amazing! The soup is great, as are the rangoons. My kids have gotten a number of chicken dishes (orange, sesame, and peanut butter), and I have had several shrimp and tofu entrees. Each time we go there, the food gets better!

A perfect meal. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My hot and sour soup was the best I've had. Spouse enjoyed her egg drop soup. She had General Tsao chicken, and I had the shrimp hot dish lunch, both excellent. With the added room divider, the atmosphere is better than ever. Best Chinese restaurant in the Valley.

Going to Confucius on X-mas has long been a tradition for my family. What a recent disappointment, noting that the business has a new owner. I do not mind spending nearly $100.00 on a meal for three, but when in the past all the food was excellent and now only one appetizer was nearly "excellent," Confucius will not be our... More

Just returned from the new Confucius restaurant. We ordered Coconut Shrimp. It couldn't have been better! Our main course was the Coconut Shrimp which was excellent. The Won Ton soup, egg roll, salad and rangoons were so good!

I've been a fan of Confusius for a long time. They have re-opened under new ownership. The decor has been upgraded, and the menu has new entrees. Some of the old favorites are there too. The flavors are a bit different from the old Confusius, but not in a bad way. I especially like the hot Hunan flavors, and I've... More

This restaurant just reopened with a new chef, and a slightly remodeled interior. The interior changes have improved the ambiance by adding color, booths, and a visual divider to break up the large dining area. My son loved the egg drop soup, and the crab rangoons were terrific! My son had sesame chicken, it was very good, as was my... More

Charlie has been single handedly responsible for bringing good Chinese food to Appleton. He said he was retiring... I don't know if they are still open.

This is a classy restaurant with excellent food and drinks. We particularly love their sweet/sour soup. They present the food in a most attractive way with excellent service.
