I've never been disappointed here. The food is consistently good. My only complaints are as follows.....Their egg rolls aren't good and so are the noodles that come free with any order. They shouldn't have to charge you for a small bag of their homemade noodles. These two items should be improved.

This is a very busy place, oh and the only one in town. The menu is standard, fresh ingredients, and served up hot. The owners are hard working and friendly. They recently moved just a few spaces up from their original spot. It's a cash or check only so don't take out a credit card. Always Chefnfly.

At one time I thought the food was good - what happened? The last two times the food left much to be desired. Lacks flavor, bland, and left us with a very strange after taste. Sorry but I won't return....

We were in Litchfield on business and needed a fast meal. A local suggested China Rainbow. The menu is large and contains all the usual Chinese meal items that you expect to find. We chose chicken Lo Mein, wonton soup and Oolong teal. Although China Rainbow is mainly for take out, there are four tables. Our meal was served quickly,... More

When I was in town for 3 weeks on business, I often stopped in. I was really pleased with most of the food. Then this year, when I returned I tried it twice and it was a bit greasy. I ordered the vegetable steamed dumpling, scallion pancake, and vegetable spring rolls. I could not eat the dumplings or the pancake.... More

Im used to NY Chinese food and this just doesnt compare. Very salty with lack of flavor. Had chicken and broccoli and had to add every seasoning but salt to get some flavor out of the food. The lo mein was very bland and left a waxy texture on your tongue.

Just plain terrible. Tough, chewy chicken, doughy wontons, nothing healthy here. You would be better off driving to one of the joints in Torrington or Watertown. Otherwise you will be left feeling sick.

Mostly good takeout. Check your order before leaving though. Fairly cheap and seems fresh. They have home made sauces like mustard if you ask for them when you pick up its a nice touch.
