I recently visited my Mom in Groton CT with my partner. It was my Mom's birthday and I asked her what she would like for dinner. She wanted Asian. So I went on line to research all the spots to get Asian food in Groton CT. I knew of The Chinese Kitchen, since I grew up in the area, but... More

You gotta go here if fresh and delicious are what you crave. The fried dishes are not greasy, but crisp. Everything is hot and portions are generous.

Ricebox if quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The owner Jimmy is so friendly and he offers a great menu. The food is not fried in heavy oil but it is still so tasty. I usually get either the beef with peppers and onions or beef with broccoli. The beef is decent beef, not the cheap... More

A new restaurant at the site of the former Oriental Palace. Interior is opened up and very bright. We've only had takeout, but went back a second time within two weeks. Chicken with vegetables, orange beef, general' chicken, vegetable lo mein, steamed dumplings, and egg rolls -- all great. Saving the jalapeno crab rangoon for when kids are home from... More
