A bit pricey and in an upscale atmosphere but the food was enjoyable and it made my son's night out a special treat.

We have been vacationing in Rehoboth Beach for over 20 years, and this is the first time we have tried this restaurant. It definitely won't be the last! We tried this because we read a comment a local chef made that when he is in town, he likes to come here. The food was really delicious, all the dishes had... More

Our family of four dined here this evening. Just great, even for our 11 and 9 yr old. The owner recognizes us from previous years, and let's us know! She even remembers previous food we have ordered. So lovely. The food is so good. We are so picky about Chinese food and this place is THE best you can get... More

We had a long day at the beach and had nothing planned for dinner. Thoughts of going out somewhere on a Friday night with the four-year-old where beyond . . . beyond. Carryout Chinese comes to the rescue, and little did we know what a treat we were in for! EXCELLENT food, ready for pickup right on time. The General... More

We have been dining here for YEARS. We love the upscale feel of this Chinese restaurant. It is almost a fine dining experience, not the typical Chinese take out counter. We also love that the chicken is all white meat & ingredients seem top notch. Prices are not cheap, but quality of our meal has always seemed to outshine the... More

I had the Shredded Pork with Vegetables for $16.95 which the menu said contained shredded pork, onions, green beans, and asparagus. It was terrible! The pork barely tasted like pork and it seemed to be a highly processed item made from poor quality chewy pulverized unidentifiable something. It was not at all what I expected. I thought the pork would... More

Now, the title of this review must be taken with a grain of salt because not only am I of Asian descent, I've also been exposed to amazing Chinese food. The ambiance was lovely. I took my family there for dinner. I should also say that I typically will not go out to each Chinese food on vacation because you... More

Confucius is not your ordinary Chinese restaurant. This is a high-level Asian gourmet adventure. It is located in a plush residential abode, and like other converted-house restaurants in Rehoboth, is high-brow delicious, though pricey. I threw caution to the wind and tried the Ma-Lo Chicken, which prompted the waitress to ask, " Have you had this before? It is quite... More

Definitely not the bastardized version of Chinese food that one is usually subjected to in the US.. Fresh, authentic, tastefully acute and the service is welcoming and attentive.. As written in numerous savvy reviews, the Seafood Hot & Sour soup lived up to those reviews.. Perfect and loaded with seafood, tofu and shrooms.. Highly recommend.. I had the Cumin Beef... More

Didn't feel like waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant so decided to try Confucius and am glad we did. The place is bright and clean, and contemporary in design. From the start, we realized this is not your typical Chinese restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. The entries are more like "Gourmet" Chinese food. We had the... More
