The Finest Sichuan & Cantonese Cuisine


Authentic & Traditional Chinese Dining

The Butterfly has been the premier location for sit down Chinese dining in West Hartford for nearly 30 years. From the Chinese standards like General Tso’s Chicken to authentic or more creative options like Spicy Dried Shrimp with the Heads; we craft each entrée from freshly delivered meats and vegetables every time you order. So whether you’re a vegetarian, need things gluten-free or just want to see how many chilis you can handle in your food let us know. Lunch, dinner, take-out, or private party see us 365 days a year for any occasion then move to the bar for an after-dinner drink, or check our schedule for karaoke or live entertainment. Hope to see you soon.

Butterfly Restaurant has been my go-to Chinese place ever since I moved to the area seven years ago... I have fallen in love with their fabulous food and wonderful service. If you are lucky enough, there will be someone playing the piano for you!”
