I have been going to Chinois for over 10 years. It has always served good food. However I cannot not explain what has happened to quality (or lack thereof) the past two times I have been there. The latest was a few weeks ago. To begin with the rolls were extremely oily. However that was actually the highlight of the meal. We ordered a fish dish specialty and it was terrible - truly bad. The fish had to be a couple of days old and the sauce was waterly without much taste. Chinois has always been known for its sauces but the past two times have been poor. I suspect that they have changed cooks. Nothing else could explain the poor quality of the meal. I think they have lost me as a customer for good but I hope it is just me.

Birthday dinner for my bride, Chinois has always been one of our favorites, great food and service\r\n1-15-09 Service was unexceptable to the point of almost leaving, it took ten minutes to get a order placed and thirty minutes to get food to our table.\r\nThe food that they have always been known for was marginal at best, my wife was the only one to have a drink,Ice tea and was never offered a refill. \r\nOther patrons with other servers came in after us and completed their meals and left before we had our food served.\r\nRestaurant was not very busy, I hope they figure it out, I have never ever left a negative review before. \r\n

We've only been once, but the food was excellent. The walnut shrimp was out of this world.

This is not traditional chinese food, but it is very good.

We paid cash, so no idea how their credit card system worked.

Their General chicken is really really good. For that dish alone, they get a high rating. The other dishes are above average. Their Kung Pao dishes can be really hot. The atmosphere is nice and the service has always been good.

Chinois is a great chinese restaurant. It is not truely ethnic food but is an interesting fusion of asian food with a european twist. I don't live in Sacramento anymore but I really miss Chinois. Parking is really convenient here too!

Pros: Good asian fusion, family friendly atmosphere, easy parking, chocolate covered fortune cookies

Although the food and service were good, the restaurant uses an outdated credit card handling system which places unnecessary risk on the card holder. I would not recommend it until they update their system.

The Scene
After sliding in the long, marbled-gray cushioned booths, you'll notice a pair of bright-red chopsticks popping out of a folded purple napkin. The colors of gold, purple, red and black--along with the swirled designs of…
