We checked out the new chinese restaurant in Middlebury last week - next to the A&W. They just opened a week or two ago, so I guess they're still working out the kinks. The ambiance in the building is a bit lacking... they have some nice artwork and murals on the walls, and cloth napkins, but only paper take-out menus even when you eat in, and it was very hot without much in the way of air conditioning. It seems like a good place for a big group, though, they had a lot of big tables, and it was pretty full when we were there. Unfortunately there was no hostess, so the line of people waiting had to manage themselves. The waitstaff seemed kind of confused, and multiple times they brought the wrong dish to our table and then stood around trying to figure out what to do.

We ordered a pu-pu platter, pork mu-shi, lemon chicken and happy family (mixed seafood and vegetables). The food had good flavor, and was generous portions - with 4 of us eating, we still had plenty of leftovers. I probably wouldn't bother with the dining room in the future, but I'd go back for take-out.
