Garlic chicken with green beans and scallops and shrimp were terrific. The hot and sour was vegetarian and was perfect. We walked in and ordered and were served for take out within 10 minutes. We live in the neighborhood and will be there regularly.

So authentic and delicious. Dishes you won't find anywhere else. Situated in a small strip of stores. Not flashy but worthy of sophisticated palate.

We went here on the recommendation of friends and we were glad we took their advice. The food was good and they kitchen has specials using lots of veggies. I enjoyed a shrimp special which had nice large shrimp and included a nice mix of fresh vegetables. Another nice thing is that here one has their choice of white rice... More

The first couple of times I came to the restaurant the food really was delicious and the service was decent. Tonight service was terrible and I will not return. The tea pot leaked all over our table; the waitress took our napkins to wipe it up, left it on the table, which look unappetizing and she had an attitude while... More

There are many Chinese/Asian restaurants to choose from in the area but for the price you cannot beat Village Gourmet. Standard Chinese dishes but all done very well. The wait staff is very good and accommodating plus the chef will make minor variations in the dishes to suit personal tastes. We have been there several times and never disappointed.

I only eat Chinese food once or twice a year - and its usually only because i've gotten a craving so bad that I must obey it or eat my arm off. That being said, crappy Chinese food just won't cut it. Today i woke up with one of those cravings and couldn't stop thinking about Chinese food all day.... More

Two days after our less than satisfactory experience at ShunLee West (see review) we had lunch at Village Gourmet. This is in a strip shopping center in an out of they way part of Norwalk. You have to want to go there. Food was very good, service very good, prices reasonable. Have been here often and never disappointed.

I have been going here for years - and it is hands-down the freshest and least "gooey" Chinese food min the area. Consistent, well-priced, a pleasant place to sit or to take out, and nice people who serve. An easy choice!
