Westchester, near New Rochelle, excellent Chinese Take-out?

Looking to make a large party with great Chinese Take-out. Not very familiar with the areas. Family in New Rochelle. Please advise of terrific food!

  1. There's no "great" Chinese anywhere near there. Go north to White Plains, and order Cantonese from Aberdeen, Sichuan from Imperial Wok, or fusiony/noodly at Noodle+.

      thanks - I will look into these recs - I am looking for more traditional Chinese take-out - wishing to recreate a Chinese buffet at home for a party for about 30+ people.

    2. I think the best traditional take out near New Rochelle is Chop Stix on Garth Road in Eastchester/Scarsdale.

        We like Chop Stix and also Seven Woks in the Golden Horseshoe. Keep meaning to try Jade Spoon, but always forget.

          Jade Spoon started by Audrey and her husband, who were part of the original ownership of Chop Stix. I liked them both, but have moved on to Bao in White Plains and SEA on Garth.

            We were very regular customer at Bao for the first 2 years that we lived in the area (my husband literally would go pick up take out for us almost every Sunday night). Then the portions started becoming skimpy and when my husband questioned them on it, the person (owner? manager?) called him a liar...and used the word liar. Needless to say, that was the last time we ate there.

            1. re: valerie

              Totally agree about the rudeness, which is why, when I order food for delivery from Bao, I now do so online. Could not take being put on hold constantly while trying to order. Wound up aggravated instead of hungry!
              Have not noticed difference in portion size over time, but I only order vegetarian, so maybe those dishes have not been downsized.

      2. Jade Spoon on Weaver St. All fresh, though slightly fusion-y.

            Is Jade Spoon in the Golden Horseshoe mall?

        1. I happen to think that Red Ruby on North Ave NewRo (near Iona -- a door or two down from Dunkin Donuts) is as good as I've found in the area for take out. I love their big shrimp!! Wherever you end up, you'd probably want to sample a few dishes first....

          1. Any one know of East Haven in Yonkers?

              Do you mean East Harbour by any chance? If so it was very good at one time, last time I was there it had changed hands and it was horrible. That was over a year + ago.

                yes - I don't know how I made that mistake - East Harbor - Zagats gave it a favorable rating - but I value my CH peeps more!
