“Great vegetarian option at the beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were staying in nearby Lewes around Labor Day and went to Rehoboth in search of a vegetarian dinner -- not that easy to find in a beach town. There were a few vegetarian items on the menu, but the waiter said they could make us something off the menu. We had a noodle dish from the menu and General Tso's tofu, off the menu. The tofu dish was especially delicious! The server was very friendly and the service was prompt but not rushed. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant for a change from the ususal beach food.

“Chinese at the beach?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Our yearly visits to Rehoboth include partaking in an overdose of seafood. So why would we ever consider going to a Chinese restaurant when seafood restaurants abound? Take one rainy night; combine it with the necessity to walk to a nearby restaurant; finish it off with a superlative recommendation from our hotel staff, The result is our discovery of Confucius Chinese. What a lucky series of events for us. The gourmet combinations that the expert chef prepares result in probably the best Chinese food we have ever eaten. As many previous posters stated the thin skin pork dumplings with cilantro are outstanding. We also loved the chicken ginger soup and walnut shrimp and scallops. Here was the seafood we always crave, at Confucius, our new favorite Rehoboth restaurant.

“A Hidden Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I recently had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, DE. What a pleasure! Shawn and his wife, Danielle came from China and established this wonderful restaurant here for our enjoyment. Actually, it's his second restaurant in Delaware, as he sold his first. Shawn and Danielle are a wonderful couple and make it a point to stop by everyone's table to make sure the food is to the customers liking. We had a wide assortment of fish (calamari, shrimp, scallops) prepared in wonderfully different ways. The chicken and beef were beyond compare. If you have a taste for spicy, this is what they are noted for. This is NOT your typical "hole in the wall" Chinese buffet. This is gourmet cuisine at it's finest. I can't begin to say enough about the food, the service and the attentiveness of Shawn and Danielle. This was a first time stop for me, but it is now on my list of "must visit again" restaurants.

“Elegant chinese restaurant in Rehoboth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

After stumbling across this restaurant 2 years ago, we now make a point to visit every year. This is definitely NOT you typical 'chinatown' fare. The food is fresh, the menu is inventive, and the ambiance is quiet and subdued. The thin skin pork dumplings with cilantro are superb, and the mango shrimp is fantastic. When we first stood outside reading the menu it seemed a bit pricey for chinese food, but a couple leaving said 'just go in, the food is fantastic' and I couldn't agree more.

“Can't Go Back to Takeout Now!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We had a delicious celebratory dinner and are stuffed! The Thin-Skin Pork Dumplings were out of this world! Didn't even need dippy sauce, either. The Salt & Pepper Calamari was delish, but the peppers way too hot for my taste. General Tso's Chicken is bangin without the sauce...coating was not too thick, not too thin so basically perfect. And _real_ chicken--not mystery tidbits entombed in some crazy batter. Mu Shu Pork was good. Hunan Beef was best ever. Go mid-week off-season is the perfect time to go. Service was very good. Can't wait to go back! And yes the floor, walls & funky-angled ceiling amplify sound so it's quite loud even when it's not rascious. A bit pricey but worth making a regular pilgrimage.
