On the search for the best Chinese food and best dumplings in Connecticut brings us to Enchanted Szechuan in Norwalk.

Spring Roll
The interior is unfortunately mushy, detracting significantly from the experience.
Despite this, the shell is near perfect, and the soy sauce dip is a nice touch.


The Rating: Spring Roll

6/10

Dumplings in Chili Oil
The sauce is the star here, offering an earthy, spicy flavor beautifully complemented by a touch of five-spice powder.
While the dumplings have a pleasing wrapper, the pork filling lacks flavor and relies on the chili oil for character.
But that chili oil is so good, you will put it on everything you can.

The Rating: Dumplings in Chili Oil

7.5/10

Dry Pot Chicken
We came for the dumplings, but the dry pot is the best thing by far.

A bright mix of flavors with Szechuan peppercorns, ground spices, and cilantro shining through.

The al dente veggies add an unexpected freshness, though some may find it odd.

The chicken itself is excellent, making this dish a standout.

The Rating: Dry Pot

8/10

Note: The rice served was a bit stale, which was unexpected and detracted from the meal.

Enchanted Szechuan offers a mix of hits and misses, with the Dry Pot Chicken being a memorable highlight. Despite some inconsistencies, it’s a worthy destination for those seeking authentic Szechuan flavors.
