Fodor's Review

Unassuming and budget-friendly, Little Village is so popular with locals that it expanded to the space next door. The extensive pan-China menu is filled with crowd pleasers such as shredded beef, spinach with garlic, Shanghai noodles, honey-walnut shrimp, orange chicken, dried green beans. Reservations are accepted for parties of five or more. Two hours of free parking are available in the parking lot immediately to the right of the restaurant (if you can nab a space).

Fantastic Little Gem

Great find in an unlikely location. We ordered a lot of items and they were all spectacular.

Great value

Food was very good. Great value. Very large menu. Service was attentive but it was Thanksgiving, so not vey crowded. Many locals, and takeout was popular.

You've Gotta Try It!

Head to China town before the dinner rush. The food is fantastic, the service is excellent but it does get crowded. By far one of the best meals we had on the island.

After waiting about half an hour for a table for two on a Friday night, we ordered three signature dishes: the lettuce cup chicken ($8.95), the sizzling black bass ($18)and the minute chicken pan fried noodles ($8.95). The lettuce cups were good, but not great, with maybe some chopped pecans mixed in with the minced chicken and water chestnuts in a ginger tinged blend. The sizzling and steaming presentation of the bass made us the center of attention

for about 60 seconds, but unfortunately the sizzle was the best part of the dish. The fish itself was mediocre, bland and oily. While the dark black bean sauce looked promising it was equally flavorless. We also ordered the minute chicken with cake noodles ($1.75 extra), but the sauce turned out to be bland brown gravy, not the red bead curd sauce that the menu promised. While waiting for our table we noticed that the majority of people there seemed to be fellow tourists -- never a good sign in Chinatown. Next time we'll try someplace with fewer awards on the wall but better food.
