I don't want to have to wait for a table...

It began as a small, mostly take-out restaurant. The place has expanded and has a thriving eat-in business. The service is great, the food is beautifully presented, and the prices can't be beat. So far, I've never had to wait for a table.

Keep the secret please.

If you want authentic, fresh, interesting asian, don't hesitate. There's no lbar so either they give you a glass of pretty ok wine, or you bring your own. Much better than typical chinese and a lovely diningroom. Always crowded because it's always good.

I was so excited when the Village Gourmet opened a second restaurant oin Stamford, Ct. The restaurant's decor is very pretty. Do not sit near the door when it is cold. They try to have a barrier from the outdoors, but it can still be cold. The food is the best Chinese around. The chicken, prawn with walnuts is delicious. Even dessert was lucious! Good value for wonderful food.

My family has been coming here for years, even before the restaurant expanded, and the food was always consistently good with attentive, friendly service as well. Not any more, I'm sad to say. We keep wanting it to be as reliable as it was before, but now we can
only count on being disappointed. Tonight my daughter found a fly in her soup, and when we sent it back they replaced it without apology. The spare ribs were fatty, and the fried pork dumplings were mediocre at best. Not sure what's up with the service lately, but it seems the only way to get a server's attention is to flag someone down. No water until we asked, no spoon for our daughter's soup, and no one took our order until we said our son hadn't eaten all day and was starving. They're just not paying attention and it really shows. We tried getting takeout from here but the food is even worse, as if they're passing off the worst if it to people who can't send it back. So sad.... This used to be the best Chinese food in the area. Now we're looking for a new place.

Seems like Norwalk has a Chinese restaurant on ever corner. Village Gourmet is one of the best. It is not like the mass produced food like other. The General Tsao;s chicken is all white meat. Other restaurants use grisly dark meat. Village Gourmet is a bit out of the way, but worth the extra mile. A bit more expensive than others, but the quality makes it worth it.
