Not only is Confucious the best chinese restaurant in Rehoboth, but it may well be the best chinese restaurant in the whole Delmarva peninsula. This is the second time we've eaten here in the past two years and it remains consistently excellent. It's situated in a lovely townhouse, not at all reminiscent of typical chinese restaurants,. The food is excellent,... More

Considering the sheer number of Chinese restaurants, so few of them (outside of major cities) can be considered upscale. Confucius offers exquisitely prepared traditional and Asian-American meals in an elegant and peaceful atmosphere. The menu is not large, but has something for everyone. I have been going here for years, and have enjoyed nearly everything on the menu. When I... More

Great brunch, food was excellent but $10 for Tea for 2 people in a Chinese restaurant is an absurdity

A look at the menu revealed a lot of Americanized Cantonese dishes. No surprises there, but they were very well constructed, great fresh ingredients and pretty. For the area I can see why it is well regarded. But it wasn't my mothers cooking. All in all an enjoyable evening

Great Food, friendly staff. the 3 course deal on Sundays can't be beat! Nice wine and beer list. Salt and pepper shrimp is a must! Ask for extra spice!

We loved the crispy halibut, the other dishes we ordered were good, but nothing special. The service was slow.

Was there on Christmas Day. Food was outstanding, everything we ordered was flawless. The restaurant is one street over from the Main Street on Rehoboth Beach. I will definitely return.

After I had to almost grab my dishes lest they be scurried away by too-eager staff who multiple times inquired "Are you finished?" I can safely say, I tasted all four of our dishes...salmon scallion pancake starter...didn't expect cold pancake which seemed to be sliced in half and salmon inserted inside...it was OK; next up crispy vegetable noodles, a lo...

Seafood hot and sour soup - excellent. Pork dumplings very good! Our dinners were very good. Lemongrass Shrimp and General Tso. Was looking for different and typical. Both were tasty and freshly prepared! Service was great and friendly. Go. Enjoy!
