Where to get Chinese takeout in Old Greenwich/Stamford/Norwalk?

The Chinese restaurant Pearl East for takeout in Stamford burned down and is still closed. I really liked their Chinese food the best. I don't like Tengda, although I've only had their Japanese dishes, I don't like how their fish is always fishy tasting. Kam Pei I love for Japanese. I tried one of their Chinese dishes and it was really fresh tasting but oddly bland.

Does anyone know when Pearl East will reopen?

  1. I think Panda Garden's food is ten times better than Pearl East's ever was. You just have to get over the fact that it is a dingy, grimy take out joint. PG is cheap and the food is good. They will take requests as well.

      Thanks, I've never heard of Panda Garden but will have to check it out. I forgot there is a Chinese place in OG right off exit 5. went there once when I first moved to the area but don't remember much.

        The place off of exit 5 is Hunan Cafe (in the CVS plaza). I had dim sum there once and was pleased, but my opinion a little weighted as they are the only place in the area that does dim sum at all

    2. Asiana in Greenwich on Putnam has opened a location in Stamford in May, called Asisan Bistro on Highridge Road. Very good food just like Asiana in Greenwich.

      1. Not sure when Pearl East is re-opening, but think I read it was arson, so probably a while. Wild Rice on High Ridge Rd (corner of Cedar Heights) is pretty good as is Asian Bistro (also on High Ridge Rd.)
