Diner Reviews
  • "Everything is fresh, reasonably priced, and spicy."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "We wanted Thai and this was the only sit down place in the area. It was nice and they have a backyard space. Portions were a bit on the tiny side for the size of the bill, but overall decent place."

  • "Went here for lunch with some co-workers for the first time recently, and have kept going back since. The drunken noodles are great, the lamb dumplings with chili oil I had last time were delicious, they have a little backyard for outdoor seating, the servers are friendly and on-the-spot, and .. they have Hitachino beer!"

  • "I desperately needed a place to take a close friend for her birthday that was intimate and had great outdoor seating, and the staff at Chop Shop (even though they initially did not have the space) made accommodations for our small party of three to sit in the outside dining area. They were also quite attentive to the "Birthday girl" and she received one drink on the house and ginger ice cream...yum. I am happy to have a neighborhood gem like Chop Shop on the west side."

  • "Part of the charm of Chop Shop is consistency -- the food is consistently delightful, and the staff are consistently attentive and helpful. This is one of my favorite local restaurants, dining here often because the blend of flavors in the dishes never fails to delight and the team of staff at this establishment are professionals! And - with the summer here - the cozy outdoor space only adds to making dining here always a great experience!"

  • "There were 4 of us so we had a chance to share many different flavors and dishes. Everything was great. The prices were fairly reasonable, but that was couple with small portions. We certainly had enough to eat because we ordered so many things. However, looking at the menu prices is somewhat deceiving because i felt we needed to order way more than we usually did. the up side was the variety we got, and we really did love every dish. Service was terrific. We went early - 7:30 on a saturday, so the place was far from full. It seemed it bit more hopping as we were leaving. Eating outside in back was definitly an nice touch - added to a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Stopped by this small restaurant for a bite before Sleep No More and enjoyed the food. The food was tasty and the portion sizes varied dramatically. If I was in the area again, I might stop by for a bite, but I would not make a special trip here. Shout out to the servers who were all very pleasant and checked in on us frequently (but not too much)!!"

    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "We started with vegetable dumplings. The dough was too thick and chewy, although the filling was good. We also ordered their most popular dish, Drunken Noodles. The dished lacked flavor - the chefs relied only chile flakes and some sugar. The Li Mien were drenched in sauce and again lacked flavor. Although we were told the dish would be authentic, it was not. We did not want to order anything else. Simple dishes are always the hardest to do well. While the open kitchen was packed with cooks and seemed promising when we walked in, there is no flavor development here. None of the dishes tasted of much, and if you have spent any time in Asia the food here will disappoint."

  • "Had a great experience at Chop Shop last night! The restaurant itself is smallish, but makes good use of its space. Nothing felt cramped, just cozy. Me and my three dining companions all had a cocktail off the specialty list and they were all delicious and imaginative and STRONG. Cocktails were all around $12, but for a cheaper option, the Tsingtao beer is just $5. The food was just as good as our drinks. Portions weren't huge, but they filled you up. I had the spicy drunken noodles and they were flavorful and spicy and didn't skimp on either the veggies or the chicken. The pork belly buns were the perfect starter to the meal. Our waiter was cheerful and attentive and funny. All in all, I had a wonderful time and will return."

  • "From the start the food has been inconsistent. there is a waitress with a severe attitude there as well. last night I ordered delivery for the second and very last time ever. I am not sure how old the Murray's chicken was but it certainly was hard and even difficult to cut through!! uneadible and a waste of $25.00. In the trash it went! so bad I could not eat it. Even the rice was hard and clumpy. It was in a curry vegetable stew with minimal vegetables!!! Sadly Chop-Shop is circling the drain and spinning fast!! Never Again!!!! Even the person that answered the phone had an attitude!!"

  • "We had been intending to dine at Chop Shop for months and finally ate there this last week. Our plan is now to dine there weekly. The food is sublime. We are rarely so happy when we leave a restaurant. The quality of ingredients and the execution could not have been better. Each dish had its own exquisite flavor."

  • "We live nearby and go somewhat regally because we love the fresh take on Chinese food. But the space is crowded. While the service is generally nice, we were stunned that we had no reaction -- not even a wan apology -- from a server when we showed he that a piece of sharp plastic was in one of our dishes."

  • "This was the first time we tried this wonderful place. It's casual and lively and young and reasonably priced and friendly and delicious. All of that add up to a super night out."

  • "Chop Shop serves much healthier versions of Chinese dishes than joints in Chinatown."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Spicy sesame noodles are pretty spicy over time! That's good; we wanted some flavor. Cucumbers are a good complement. Crab cake special with vegetables were tasty although not surprising; the vegetables with them were cool and flavorful. Drunken noodles were fine; kind of average (although the shrimp in it was nice and tender). Portion on this dish could have been a bit larger. Coconut creme caramel was rich and delicious -- not surprising but perfectly done. Service genuine, friendly, attentive. I had a little bit of sticker shock when I got the check; it wasn't so much but it seemed a little out of proportion for the modest mea we had. Some items could use more interesting flavoring or elements."

  • "Nice neighborhood find. Very small restaurant with heated and covered outside space. You must try the pork buns and fried rice. I've had both elsewhere but never like this... Enjoy,"

  • "We found this place on Open Table while on holiday in New York. The food was excellent and the cocktails were strong! We had several different servers - three were friendly and helpful but one of the Asian waiters took sassy to the extreme. In the two interactions with us he managed just to not say a single word and just scowled at us! Was at odds with the rest of the staff who were all lovely and really unexpected because service is usually at such a high standard in the US thanks to the tipping culture."

  • "Found Chop Shop via the OpenTable search. Read the reviews and figured we'd try it. We really enjoyed the food here. And the special drinks were outstanding! I had a chili-infused margarita (twice) and it was excellent. The Thai food was really good. Portions are small; this is meant for ordering a lot of plates and sharing. I'd go back in an instant!"
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "as always, food great. service leaves something to be desired, and it's always the same server. if the idea is to be quietly arrogant and somewhat dismissive, then he's succeeding. still, the food keeps us coming back each time. just hoping some turnover in the staff brings an influx of personality to the service."
