Top Notch Chinese
There are several great choices for Chinese food in Atlanta, but Chopstix is unique in its setting and its service. Almost universally, Atlanta’s best Chinese always carries some apologies with its recommendations, i.e. that service is lacking (or non-existent), or that the atmosphere is a little (or very) run-down. Chopstix, however, provides fast, friendly seating and attentive service in a clean, quiet, eloquent atmosphere, which sets it miles away from its competition.
It’s a crime that it took me that many words before I got to the food, which is very flavorful, generously portioned, and consistent. There is a variety of Chinese cuisine, some familiar American favorites, some very traditional dishes, and some original and innovative creations from Chopstix’s own kitchen. The crawfish egg rolls are an excellent choice as an appetizer, as are the cold peanut noodles. The Mongolian beef is the best that I have had anywhere, by far, and the Chopstix Chicken is a fitting “flagship dish” for the restaurant.
Chopstix is the only Chinese restaurant in Atlanta that I ever elect to dine-in at rather than opt for carry out or delivery, and I have never been anything but completely satisfied with a meal there.
