On Sunday, May 31, 2015, my daughter and I had lunch at the Chop Stick Café’s new location at 207 North Kent Street in Winchester, Virginia. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-9:00 PM; Friday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Saturday, 12:00 PM-10:00 PM; Sunday, 12:00 PM-8:00 PM.

The phone number is (540) 450-8691. Carryout is available, along with delivery to Old Town Winchester. The Web site at http://www.chopstickcafe.biz/ includes menu links and an event schedule. Parking is on the street, but there are no meters in this block of Kent Street.

The restaurant occupies two connected buildings; one is a former two-story 1850 residence typical of Old Winchester with a new modern annex added to its south side. The older building has two metal sidewalk tables with chairs next to it. Each building has a door, but only the one on the new building is used as the entrance. There is no vestibule. A receptionist’s station is on your right as you enter, next to padded seats for people who wish to wait.

This room has a trapezoid shape; the back wall is angled and not parallel to the front of the building because of the railroad track immediately behind it. A bar along this wall has eight stools, and a Sushi chef was busy in the back. Seating in this room has a couple of high-rise round tables and chairs, with a long bench along the front wall facing tables with chairs. The wall on your left has glass bricks instead of a window, and a table for six is in front of it. A more formal dining area is in the original building, and is accessed from the entry area through a doorway. This room has a fireplace with a mantel holding Oriental decorations. There are two booths at the front windows, and two tables elsewhere. The restrooms are in the rear, and the Men’s Room has a baby-changing station. I was told that the stairway next to the far wall leads to additional dining and a party room on the second floor.

The menu has eight pages, if you include the front cover with its picture of the joined buildings. The categories are Side Soups, Appetizers, Salads, Burgers and Sandwiches, Curries; Entrée Soups, Noodles, and Rice; Chef’s Specials, Sushi Menu, Maki Sushi, and Fresh Rolls. Also, Combination Rolls, Crispy Rolls, Deluxe Platters, and Kids Menu.

The Curries and Chef’s Specials are served with white jasmine rice; brown rice is $1.00 extra. They both offer a choice of meats; chicken, pork (or substitute tofu); beef or shrimp are $2.00 extra. A separate menu offered later lists Desserts and Beverages.

Overall, the cuisine can be classed as Asian Fusion and includes Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese items. I should note that the restaurant’s Key Lime Pie specialty is still available, although it isn’t listed separately on the dessert menu.

Also, a Lunch Menu is available 11:00 AM-3:00 PM, Monday ’“ Friday. From the Appetizer menu we ordered Shrimp Toast, which was served with a cucumber sauce for dipping.

From the Chef’s Specials we each ordered the Fried Soft Shell Crab. It was served on a bed of spinach with a choice of sauce - Panang, Red or Green Curry, Thai Basil Sauce or Thai Chili Sauce; we chose Panang and requested omitting the spicy additive. An extra crab would have been $7.00 additional. The entrée was served on square white platters, and the optional brown rice was in large bowls. I ordered a pot of Hot Jasmine Tea, which came with two tea bags. It was merely warm, and not hot, so I ordered another pot, which was no warmer than the first. The soft shell crabs were very good, and served with assorted vegetables; the Panang sauce was based on coconut milk.

My daughter ordered Thai Egg Custard for dessert, which was served warm; I had a sample bite, which had a texture somewhat like a soft brownie.

I rate the Chop Stick Café as a keeper. The Chop Stick Café began operations at 202 East Piccadilly Street in January 2010, in the remodeled former premises of the Stonewall Tavern & Grill. That location will now become a EuroAsian grocery.

On Wednesday, March 24, 2010 I had lunch at a new restaurant in Winchester that had recently been reviewed in The Winchester Star as featuring Thai and other oriental dishes. The place is called the Chop Stick Café, and is located at 202 East Piccadilly Street.

For years the Stonewall Tavern & Grill had been at this address, but I never patronized it. It had appeared to be a beer joint with a rundown appearance that discouraged me from venturing inside. The Chopstick Café owner gutted the interior and started over, while keeping and refinishing the original bar.

It opened in January, and appears to be quite modern now with no vestiges of its previous unsavory reputation. The main menu's list of beverages included young coconut juice, something I had not seen before, along with plum wine and sake, and conventional beer and wine.

There were also burgers and sandwiches, noodle dishes, pasta, appetizers, a kid's menu, salads, and soups. A separate sushi menu listed a variety of choices, but I'm not familiar with or interested in this oriental specialty.

The owner told me that his wife and mother-in-law work in the kitchen, and are from Thailand. He is the baker, and his specialty is a key lime pie, which was on special that day. The menu listed Chinese, Japanese, and Korean dishes, as well as a few Thai items. I decided on the Thai beef stew noodle offering.

It came in a large bowl, and had a lot of long, thin, translucent noodles in a nicely seasoned broth. There were thin slices of beef, along with chunks of it. For a while I tried eating the noodles uncut by wrapping them around the ends of my chopsticks. Eventually, I tired of that and cut the noodles for eating with a fork.

For dessert I ordered a slice of the key lime pie. It came with a graham cracker crust, and I liked it. The food is good enough for return visits. I'll probably order one of the salads next time; I saw other people eating them, and they looked appetizing.

Love Love Love the food here. Everything I have tried has been yummy. We don't eat out often but when we do we want a real treat and this is one of our favorites. The fusion concepts are full of flavor. My Husband, Son and I always plan on getting something different and eating family style so we can taste it all and have not yet been disappointed at Chop Stick. — Anonymous Reviewer

We reserved 2 tables ahead of time for a birthday party on Saturday, 1/25/14. When we arrived one of the 2 tables were available and the other soon became available. Once all of our party (8 adults and 1 kid) we placed our orders. Some or our party ordered thai food and most ordered sushi. After about 1 hr 20 minutes, the thai food arrived. This was definitely a long wait time being that there weren't many people in the restaurant. The people that ordered thai start eating while everyone else is waiting for their sushi orders. Around the 2 hr mark we finally start getting some of our sushi orders. Yes, you read that right...2 hours!!! By this time everyone eating their thai was finished eating. It took about 15 more minutes to get the remainder of the sushi orders. Some of the sushi orders were wrong, but we didn't even bother asking them to make them again since we had already wasted 2 hrs. 15 minutes waiting to eat. The sushi itself tasted good, but they don't allow you to give a 0 on here, so they get a 1. I've been to many sushi/thai restaurants in the area and have never had as bad of an experience as at Chop STick Cafe! — Anonymous Reviewer

I LOVE eating at Chop Stick Cafe and do so about once a week. Only a couple of issues are service is SLOW, and takes a really long time for service and even longer to try to pay and get out of there. The tables are always sticky! I wish they'd hire experienced waitstaff that can move the tables quicker!! — Anonymous Reviewer

Love the food. Not a fan of the service. This is because one day I ordered to go and they forgot to place the order. Another time the waiter charged me 83.00 for a chicken panang to go and then had no idea how to take the charge off. I waited for about 20 minutes while he tried to figure it out and then I ended up "having to take it in faith" that the owner would fix it when he came back later in the evening. Advice to everyone... check your bill, sometimes there are suprises. I doubt that I will go back there now, even though their food is great. — Anonymous Reviewer

Amazing. Well worth the visit. Exceptional food and very friendly service. They certainly make you feel like you are part of the family. Ingredients are fresh, portions generous, and prices decent. We did not try the sushi this time around, but am assured by the owner that he's the best in Winchester, so I will have to give it a go next time around. Don't forget the desserts! Made on the premises and are as good as they come. The key lime pie is a slice of heaven in a crust so good that it could qualify as a desert all on its own! Reservations are suggested for weekend dining as it fills up quickly. — Anonymous Reviewer

I LOVE this restaurant! We had a group lunch this afternoon at Chop Stick Cafe and I was amazed at the service considering the size of our party (16). I ordered the Smoked Salmon Roll and Thai Spicy Chicken Salad. The flavor makes my taste-buds pop! Most excellent! — Anonymous Reviewer

Consistently excellent. I have never had a thing there that was even mediocre. The Thai Beef Stew is wonderful and very nice sushi. It has a very welcoming cozy atmosphere and you get a great feeling knowing you're supporting a small family-owned place. Don't miss it. Soooo much better than 97% of Winchester's offerings. — Anonymous Reviewer

Finally made my first trip to Chop Stick Café for lunch on Friday afternoon. I've been eye-balling this place for a long time and with the number of positive reviews, I had high expectations. Chop Stick's did not disappoint! The owner was super friendly and discussed menu options and sold my wife on the lunch special (3 piece shrimp and fish w/rice). Her meal had awesome flavor and a nice crispy crunch on the fish and shrimp. For an appetizer, we ordered the Philadelphia Roll. The 8 pieces were tasty and well portioned. My meal consisted of the Bulgogi BBQ Burger (with bacon). I didn't option for the fried egg; however, it probably would have been great. Nonetheless, this burger is easily hands down the BEST burger I've ever had in Winchester! Super flavor and very large. This establishment is easily the best I've experienced in Winchester when it comes to fresh food, great menu selection and super friendly customer service. There is also a very large selection of beers to choose from should you decide to order from their beverage selection. I highly recommend Chop Stick Café! — Anonymous Reviewer

Just moved to Winchester and still finding all the best local spots, and this is definitely one of them! Best Pad Thai I've found so far and their Raspberry Pie is absolutely amazing! The prices are great as well: Dinner, a beer, and dessert for $20!!! I've only been once, and that's all it took to be convinced that I'll be back!! — Anonymous Reviewer
