Butterfly just closed, which is too bad, because Richard Lau, head chef,is probably the best around. I think he is moving on to the Panda Garden in Williamsburg

I was staying at a local hotel recently. The weather was terrible, making me not want to go out for dinner. I asked the front desk for the names of some restaurants that deliver, and they gave me Butterfly's menu. While the Butterfly menu items looked good -- some pretty regular Chinese dishes, as well as Japanese and what looked... More

We were up in the Northampton/Hadley area for the day and decided to try the "Dim Sum" offering which was recently reviewed in the newspaper. Unfortunately, the Dim Sum here is not like the Dim Sum in New York where they push the little carts of food around. You have to order selections from a menu. The portions are rather... More

We have eaten here regularly since they opened. I am really surprised that there are any negative reviews, especially on service. We look forward to the fantastic soups and authentic szechuan dishes every time we dine here. Make sure to ask for the yellow Szechuan menu to enjoy some great spicy eats. The sushi and the specialty lunches are also... More

I visited this restaurant today for the first time with my husband, we were actually the only customers there, the atmosphere was ok, but the wait service was horrible, I don't only look for good food I also liken it when the wait service is very attentive and welcomes you with a smile and asks how everything is so far...

The only thing worth saying positive, is that the prices are reasonable, other then that, I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. The veggies were half dead in the beef and broccoli; squishy and decaying and the silverware and water glasses were questionable. In fact, when asked to replace the water glass, the server merely just emptied the glass at... More

It is probably unfair to judge a restaurant by one meal, and an inexpensive luncheon one at that. Still. it is human nature. It will be a long time before we go back. Not that the food was awful, it was just the same old thing I have seen on countless cookie cutter menus from dozens of forlorn looking Chinese... More

I keep going only because of the great veggie food. Wait people are rude, service is awful and cleanliness is ever declining. Order take out and avoid the people and atmosphere.

Went once. Terrible atmosphere, matched only by the food. Wouldn't go back. Beats me why it's still in business.

My partner and I have eaten inside this restuarant and enjoyed it thoroughly. When we were in there the last time we noticed that they do free delivery and decided we wanted food from them. We live outside of town and had no problem ordering more than $20 because it was out of town. The delivery man came and we... More
