For the last five months, my husband and I have been trying a new restaurant every month. Chinois Asian Bistro has an amazingly eclectic Asian Menu, so we thought we'd eat there tonight. Well, this is the first restaurant we've tried that we may give a second, third, or fourth chance, to try something else on their menu! We started... More

We ordered take out for lunch while staying in the area. We had the Hong Kong BBQ pork egg noodles and it was excellent. I was surprised at the quality of the food. Also came with a fresh salad which was very good.

This is one of my go to restaurants that we frequent on a weekly basis. We have not had a bad dish there. The Rocket Shrimp, the Barbecued Noodles With Pork and all of the soups are my favorites but you can't go wrong with whatever you pick. The menu represents more then Thai food but Thai food predominates. My... More

The location is ideal, and the patio space is perfect during the summer. The food goes without saying is creatively delicious and the service is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Best Asian cuisine in town!

The food here is amazing - there is something for everyone! We had the crab cakes and spring rolls as appetizers and both were delicious. For dinner, we had the butterfish and the garlic butter prawns. They were the best prawns I've ever had - done to perfection! My husband thought the butterfish was excellent. Carlos was our waiter and... More

Good service, food we thought was good, but not really special. However, a lot of others seem to find Chinois a cut above the crowd. Probably should try it out for yourself.

We went to Chinois because we had just returned from Malaysia and wanted Penang char kuay teow again. There were four of us, all of whom have travelled extensively in Asia. We mostly ordered off the "noodle kings" section of the menu: Penang CKT, Cambodian glass noodles, spicy Taiwanese short rib soup, and spicy combination coconut fried rice, We also... More

I was heading to another local restaurant when I stopped at Chinois. The staff were friendly and I was seated immediately. I ordered the wor wonton soup and lamb skewers. I can say without hesitation, the wor wonton soup was the best I ever had. The lamb skewers, basted with a teriyaki marinade and served with a hot pepper jelly,... More

When you order lunch here you get a house salad along with it, and the dressing is wonderful. Fresh food, great choices. I like the house cocktails made with sake instead of harder liquors. Fried wontons make a great appetizer, followed by a big bowl of noodles, and lunch is made!
