Last review noted China House had new owners. They seem to have established themselves really well and when I went last week to pick up an order they were jammed. Shrimp dumplings are really great as are lo mein dishes. Mixed vegetables, spicy pork, shrimp and the regulars are well done. We are pleased to have a solid Chinese restaurant... More

The staff at Rice are very friendly and the chefs are competent at turning out lovely dishes but the food lack flavor. It was great to be able to look right into the kitchen while you waited but I wanted more in terms of tastes.

The great chef has left. New owners so stay tuned. I only ordered dumplings and egg rolls and they were ok. Dumpling skins a little thick. The new owners seemed very pleasant

The new owners of this restaurant used to own the Magic Wok. The chef is excellent and worked with Ken Hom. The quality of food and preparation here is the best around for authentic Chinese and Malaysian food. Try dumplings, noodle dishes and seafood. We are fortunate to have them back in Middlebury and they deserve to do well.

Rice is the new China House Name. It must have switched owner. But since they have started there have as far as I've seen. thousands of problems so far. The first two times I ordered here to see if the new owners would be better or not. I was wrong. First time I order she takes only half my order... More
