Chinese in Rockland or Bergen

I haven't been to a Chinese restaurant since China Echo in New City closed down years ago. Can anyone recommend a Chinese restaurant where the food can be just a routine menu or upscale, but most importantly the atmosphere is either sort of romantic or tiki-ish or sort of polynesian. I guess I'm just looking for somewhere not too bland looking. Thank you!

  1. Food is definitely ordinary, but your criteria sound like you would actually enjoy a PFChangs, I think they are both in Rockland and Bergen. Formula food, but high tech digs.

      Can't speak for Bergen, but there's no PF Chang's in Rockland. A local option might be Jade Village, in Chestnut Ridge. It's in an old house, with half the place Japanese and half Chinese. Food is okay but not rave-worthy, but the setting on the Chinese side is much more elegant than any other Chinese restaurant I've seen around Rockland.

        Only eat in Chinese in Rockland I'd really recommend is Fortune Garden in Nanuet. However, may not be the atmosphere your looking for

          I haven't been there in awhile, but I too like Fortune Garden. They have very good sesame chicken. You're right I don't think it has the atmosphere the op is seeking. They have a nice fish tank if that counts towards something! In Bergen Co. there is the Peking Duck House in Norwood, I haven't been there in years, but it has more of the atmoshpere you are looking for, I just can't comment on the food. For all I know the place is gone. Also, there's a place on Kindercamack Rd. in Hillsdale, I can't recall the name, but it too has the atmosphere you are seeking. I've only been there once, it's been there for ages, the food was ok, not wonderful.

          I've been to Jade Village and enjoyed it very much. I would also recommend Golden Mushroom on 9W in Upper Nyack, right before the intersection with Christian Herald.

      2. I found Peking Duck House online & it looks perfect. Thank you all very much. I'll put them all on my list & see where I wind up!

          I've been to Peking Duck House and I believe it is exactly what you're looking for. Of course if you go have the Peking Duck they do a little show right at the table.
