“Excellent Asian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at 5:30 when they open, but it gets busy so make a reservation if you plan dining later. Per the owner everything is made fresh to order and based on the aromas and tastes, he is a man of his word. The crispy scallops in tangerine sauce are to die for and worth going back just for that dish alone. We also had Mongolian lamb, the zen lo mien, fried calamari, Chinese fried rice (also has a Japanease version), and an edamame starter. All first class. For context purposes, I have had Asian food on the West Coast (SF, Seattle, and Vancouver) and the East coast (NYC, and Montreal). The quality holds up.
They offer a grill experience and have a broad range of Chineae and Japanease dishes, including sushi/sashimi. Don't find something on the menu, they will custom create a dish, ie any sauce with any thing they have (meat, seafood, etc). They bill was $120 with tax and tip with no alcohol or desert. They also have a full bar. Nice atmosphere with friendly with attentive staff. Dress casual to business attire. Good for any range eating experience, except an intimate, romantic dinner.
Overall a must and conveniently located close to the major resorts, e.g. Five minute drive from our Ritz Carlton Villa.

“Just like home...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Chinese and Japanese items on the extensive menu. The sushi was fresh. The Chinese appetizers and dishes were good as well. They also have a teppanyaki grill. Just like the place we go for sushi at home in NJ. A good change of pace after all of the "local" restaurants.The owner took care of us and was very accommodating.

“Outstanding for a strip mall in Dorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Came here twice in 5 days at the Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach Reserve. Great Chinese Food and the management is so incredibly accommodating. Loved it. Cold sesame noodles, crispy orange beef -- just like good New York Chinese food.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We came here one night while vacationing in Dorado. We were told at the door we would have to wait awhile if we wanted food cooked on the Teppanyaki grill (there was another group ahead of us). We were happy to wait and had some appetizers and drinks while waiting. The server was knowledgeable about the menu, fast, and attentive. The chef did a great job of cooking our food while also making it a bit of a "show". Everything he prepared was delicious (even the shrimp, and I don't usually like shrimp!) The server did forget to serve our soups and salads before the chef started the grill, so instead we got some fried cheesecake for dessert. I would recommend this place to anyone! You can also get food that is not prepared in front of you on the grill, and the menu has a wide variety of different things, so there is something for everyone. The ChopHouse is located in a nice area that was easy to find. I will definately come back here again if I am in the area!!
