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

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.
