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

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
