I only eat Chinese food once or twice a year - and its usually only because i've gotten a craving so bad that I must obey it or eat my arm off. That being said, crappy Chinese food just won't cut it. Today i woke up with one of those cravings and couldn't stop thinking about Chinese food all day.... More

Two days after our less than satisfactory experience at ShunLee West (see review) we had lunch at Village Gourmet. This is in a strip shopping center in an out of they way part of Norwalk. You have to want to go there. Food was very good, service very good, prices reasonable. Have been here often and never disappointed.

I have been going here for years - and it is hands-down the freshest and least "gooey" Chinese food min the area. Consistent, well-priced, a pleasant place to sit or to take out, and nice people who serve. An easy choice!

We order from Village Gourmet every 6 weeks or so and they have never let us down. Maybe a few greasy egg rolls but usually the food is excellent. The Boneless Spare Ribs are delicious. My two favorite dishes are Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce and Sauteed String Beans when I go vegetarian. Moo Shu Pork is my all time... More

We always enjoy lunch at this place. Everything is very good. Service is always attentive. Now, they have opened up a Dumpling and Noodle House called Rin on Main Avenue, but, it is not yet on here. It is every bit as good as this one.

We've tried Chinese restaurants in our area over the years, never coming away particularly impressed. This all changed last night with a great experience at Village Gourmet. Atmosphere: thankfully, no red-tasseled lanterns or hokey Buddhas -- rather, clean and crisp interior with well-spaced tables and a warm welcome. Food: terrific. Quite a few of the predictable regular dishes plus some... More

Very good and fresh Chinese (american chinese food). The food, especially the seafood specials are always very good. They don't serve alcohol however and are located in a strip mall

Thank willgero
