The previous review has got to be a joke because this place is awful. Skip it entirely. The food is bland and boring, especially the Buns. Its not even worth writing a full review on, its just awful. What a huge let down, we so wanted this place to be good.
Stopped by for a light tasting and the Mongolian BBQ Bunz was amazing. One of the best I have ever had, including those in China. I also enjoyed the dumplings
HORRIBLE!!!!!! Customer Service. The Location on 1195 Fairburn Road EVEN WORST!!!!
Don't BE Surprised if your FOOD is SPOILED and whatever you do, do not mention it, if you do don't be surprised at HOW they Treat You.
I have been visiting New Paradise for years, albeit infrequently (my mistake). Having read more than one reviewer about the Salt and Pepper Calamari, I decided to try it. I ordered egg drop soup for starters since I like to see the simple things done well and it's appetizing flavor was not to much and not too little. I added a beer to my order just to complement the good start. My rice pot, and green bean vegetable entree came next (followed shortly by my calamari), so stay flexible on the serving schedule details. The beans were tender, full-bodied, sweet, vividly colorful and abundant, so I helped myself to a few; delicious. The calamari arrived, and looked like a serving for three. I tried my first piece, taking care to wind in bits of the sauteed onion, chili pepper, and green pepper that accompanied, but did not crowd the generous calamari serving. The calamari itself was light, singularly flavorful with perfect balance (no invasive seasoning) and one of the finest dishes I have ever eaten. Some culinary magic resides in the salt (remember the name, Salt & Pepper Calamari, which did make me curious); I have never tasted anything that actually makes salt assume such a delicious quality, a delightful interplay of salt and tempered sweetness. The calamari meat was tender, flavorful, and every bit as appealing as any less adventurous (for some) meat choices. At first reminiscent of tempura, the light breading, extra moisture and engaging flavor of this dish moved it to a higher order. The waiter and manager visited frequently, making sure everything was OK, so obviously the service "evolves" depending on customer response. I loved my meal and thoroughly relaxed in the unpretentious ambiance of New Paradise. I will return soon to explore other menu choices, and highly recommend this fine Chinese restaurant to others.
Good food with lots of flavor, but can be a little greasy. I mean greasy with chili oil like Sichuan food is supposed to be.
This place is great!
Leek Pie - Tasty noodles, leeks, and scallions in a fried pie.
Shanghai Soup Dumplings - Steamed dumplings full of liquified pork fat.
Manchurian Pork Pancake is delicious too, but a tad greasy if that turns you off.
Had dinner for three adults with beer and leftovers for $35.
Ah man, did I want to remember your name when I got to the place that you recommended in CL - Canton Cooks. I invited people based on that. I actually had respect for CL. And following your review, I suggested we go to this place. Here is a question: Are you from Atlanta? I don't think so.
In terms of rating Chinese restaurants, do you feel yourself qualified on the following:
- Is this American Chinese or Authentic? Because your review says it is both, which it is not.
- Does the "four" person booth they have space for accommodate 4 people? NO
- Do all of the waitstaff SCREAM across the dining room? YES
- Does the waitress throw herself unasked across the table to grab napkins from the wall? YES
- Do you even know what Chinese food is? I'm thinking you are from New York.
Here's just an extra. If I had wanted to feel like I was in South Florida, I would not have escaped from there a year and a half ago.
My wife and I eat at Ming's regularly. Absolutely love it. Best roast duck, bbq pork and soy sauce chicken in town. Slight mark down for some inconsistencies, especially depending on the time of day you are there.
Great authentic Chinese food. I really enjoyed the roasted bbq pork and duck. This place has also a really good stir fried beef with flat noodles dish. I would recommend anyone to eat here.
I love this place. I come here regularly with family and grew up eatting this type of food. I think the atmosphere may need a little help. I would recommend anyone to come and taste the delectable selections on the menu. The people are nice and take out is easy to order.
The name does not represent the place. There is no "Delight" in the food served. I have been there in many occasions. Once the dim sum was old and tasted it was heated up by a microwave. Another visit with family, they brought out a cooked fish that tasted expired. I would not recommend coming here.
The outside of the parking lot does this place no justice! I was taken here by some friends also and when I walked it, it was simply gorgeous. I never imagined that the kitchen was open and you could see them cooking your meal. The food was fabulous. Of course Americanized Chinese food, but nonetheless very saucy and yummy. I would recommend bringing my American friends here for dinner or lunch.
I agree with Max's review. I visited last night to use my Scoutmob, and it was fantastic.
I don't know what happened when I tried this restaurant, but the entire experience made me question the sanity of all those who have hyped this place. I love duck and often try nightly specials because as a worker in the service industry for over 13 years I know these specials offer the chef a chance to "flex" the culinary muscles and shine. It just didn't come together for my girlfriend and I. I want to give it another chance, but the food was so off point the first time that I am reluctant.
Please...MSG is yummy and found in nature. You are just weak minded.
Great food! Good service! Any other food that says it's from China is like eating at Mickey-D's...
They use tons of MSG! Halfway through dinner I turned red and couldn't finish. I thought that in this century I wouldn't have to ask anymore, "do you cook with MSG?"
Awesome food, friendly folks, authentic chinese cuisine dishes with a twist. I ate there by myelf and with group up to 15 people. everyone rave how good and fresh the food it.
Great place. Good sushi too. Try the viagra roll, so good it gave me wood.
This place is nasty and the service is horrid. Watch out cause you will get yelled out by the owner's son!!
