On my most recent experience, a take out dinner for 12, the general quality of the meals was outstanding. We tried... read more

Village Gourmet has been our "go to" Chinese since moving to the neighborhood over 12 years ago and was the best in the area, but no more...Quality and flavor have severely slipped over the last few years. From 30+ years of travel to Asia, I know good Chinese cuisine. The broth is flavorless, bland fried rice, limp string beans, no... More

Generous portions of really good food,free glass of wine and free pickled vegetables to start, fair prices and a well thought out menu. What more could a boy ask for???? The service was attentive and the food was well prepared and attractively presented. We would look forward to coming again.

We have eaten at this restaurant on many occasions in the past and the lunch meals have always been very good. In fact some of our relatives have driven from NYC and the Bronx to enjoy good Chinese food. Recently all six of us went to the restaurant for lunch to celebrate our in-laws wedding anniversary and we noticed that... More

Tried this place recently. Loved all the dishes we had. Spicy and delicious. They also offered a glass of free wine with our dinner. The wine was surprisingly good for a freebie. Definitely going back there again soon.

This restaurant has great--really great--Chinese food. Best in Fairfield County. Get there early on weekends or you may have to wait for a table.

This is a follow up review, regarding Village Gourmet, a nice restaurant located in a residential part of town and convenient to a lot of folks who are not especially close to downtown Norwalk where quite a few Chinese restaurants are located. There continue to be some excellent items on the menu, which has undergone some changes. The cold sesame... More

This place in my neighborhood used to be small with a few tables but mostly take out business.Now due to loyal following, they opened a whole roomful of tables. Reservations ARE recommended on Friday nights and some other times on weekends. Loyal customers have decided they enjoy the ambiance and would like to dine in. I have had nothing bad.... More
