We had a lovely lunch here. The lunch specials were inexpensive and not just the usual combo plates you get at many chinese restaurants. Many vegetarian options available, too. I had some handcut noodles with vegetables and tofu. Tasty! The noodles were robust and chewy and delicious. It came with hot and sour soup, quite spicy. My dining partner had the mock duck - not a lunch special - which was a mushroom dish with a pastry shell. Good but filling, was the verdict. It came with white or brown rice. The waiters were attentive, the tea was delicious, and all left happy and fed!

Happened to pass through the alley on the side of this restaurant, got a peak into the kitchen and it was just grose. The stoves were disgusting, I would never eat here again!

This is the best Chinese food in Amherst, maybe the whole Valley. They have tasty versions of all kinds of familiar and unfamiliar foods. Their eggplant hot pot--unbelievably good. They grow their own vegetables and dishes vary imaginatively according to the vegetables they've got.

I have eaten at Am Chi many times over the past decade, and it's impressive that they have remained consistently good. The specials are often interesting, and I always get at least one dish they grow on their farm. Service is usually fast and friendly, but when it's really busy, there can be a bit of waiting.

Am Chi (as the locals know it) serves the freshest Chinese food in the area. Some ingredients are grown on their local farm and you can taste the freshness in the food. If you order chicken, you get chicken...not that mysterious grey meat normally served at other places. The service is really good as well and the inside certainly is more upscale than your typical Chinese restaurant.
