Calvin's Chinese Bronxville

I noticed this place last Saturday (it was closed of course so I could not try it). I noticed they had Tom Yum Soup on the menu. I picked up their takeout menu and saw that they actually have lamb dishes. This really piqued my interest.

Has anyone ever tried the Thai/Lamb type things? What else, if anything is good there?

  1. Hi, I haven't tried the lamb, but we live down the road and Calvin's quickly became our place for take out. I have never had anything here I didn't like. I usually get the special Bok Choy sauteed with Shrimp or Chicken. Although it's listed as a special, their specials never change interestingly enough!
    I usually keep to the Chinese menu options since we go to Haiku or Wild Ginger if we want something more out of the ordinary. I would love to hear back from you if you try the Tom Yum soup or the lamb!

    1. We have eaten there a couple of times, however, we have not tried the lamb. Like SweetPea914 I like their bok choy dish. I consider them kind of an old fashioned chinese restaurant which are few and far between in our area.

      1. I have tried the Curry Lamb at Calvin's and it is pretty tasty! I would recommend it. Have never had the Tom Yum soup though.

        1. Sadly, Calvin's closed in the spring of 2009. ASIAN WIND is there now, and it's a gem of a restaurant. If you liked Calvin's you'll l ike this place.

          1. Calvin's closed in 2009. It was excellent. There have been 3 restaurants there since and a new one, Dumpling + Noodle will oopen soon.

              Don't want to knock it without looking at the menu, but if it is another "fusion" place, it will probably be gone before it is barely up and running. I knew the last place was suspect when someone posted a picture which showed the giant root vegetable ornaments carved to look like birds (they completely dwarfed the food). Anyway, the new owner should take heed.

                I guess it is the Power of Negative Thinking. We actually liked the new Dumpling place although there were a few caveats. A full review is under the name of the new restaurant. A far far cry from the stupefyingly awful Onn's.
