Terrific Chinese in Norwalk

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... read 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

We eat here at least once a week and I have not written a review for this neighborhood gem in years. We recently moved and it is no longer 5 minutes away from our home, but it is worth the extra 10 minutes for their yummy dishes. Always fresh food and always great specials. My whole family will yell VG... More

The food here was wonderful. Portions are huge, leftovers are delish. By far the best friend rice I ever had. A bit pricey compared to others but worth it.

We were immediately impressed that they served real jasmine tea. We shared the steamed dumplings and orange chicken. Both were extremely good, not doused with sauce but still very tasty. I usually dislike spicy food because I often can't taste any flavor along with the heat...not so with this orange chicken! It was hot, but the spices enhanced the flavor... More

Yesterday was our first trip to Village Gourmet - we are both sick and needed some good Wonton Soup - there is basically none in Stamford, so took a chance. OMG are we so grateful we did. The service is excellent, food beyond expectations, bathroom stocked, and very nice ambiance. It was lunch time and I had the Szechuan Peppercorn... More

We used to live in Norwalk and miss the great Chinese food at the Village Gourmet located in a small strip mall in the Cranbury section of Norwalk. We stop here often when traveling through Norwalk and are never disappointed. We had the Eggplant With Chiicken in a spicy sauce and the Sesame Chicken. Your lunch meal comes with a... More

My husband's parents used to live down the street from VG and we ate here often, but since they have passed away, we haven't been here for a couple of years. We made a concerted decision to stop by on New Year's Eve after a morning at the Aquarium. New tables and chairs added to the clean, minimalist/Asian décor, and... More

I have dined here many times and used their take out even more frequently. Over the years, the food has remained very good, although I found it better at certain times than others. On my most recent experience, a take out dinner for 12, the general quality of the meals was outstanding. We tried a variety of their tried and... More
