    Re: Chinese food near DL - Recommendations?

    Pacific Wharf's Chinesse food wasn't bad. I didn't eat the sushi there (it was California rolls), because I didn't trust that, but I remember it was good. Don't remember what was on the menu, though...

      PF Changs is now open at Garden Walk. It opened on Monday. Nice choice that is within walking distance from the park.

        Yen Ching restaurant in Orange gets my vote for authentic Chinese. It's not too far from DLR, and if you're going with a group, they have "family style" options with 4+ courses.

          May be a bit of a drive... Tustin Market Place Chin Chin's! Best ever! They have one in Las Vegas at the NY NY. Very good! Right down the 5 south exit Tustin Market Place.

          Or more local, P.F. Changs!

              OMG Chin Chins is Hollywood is GREAT!!
              Too far to deliver to Disneyland though
              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                It's abound eight miles away, but we tried this place recently and really liked it: *Googles address*

                Golden Dragon Restaurant‎
                2023 Harbor Blvd # A, Costa Mesa, CA
                (949) 642-7162‎
                http://www.cmgoldendragon.com/

                This place is closer, but also pretty good, though I haven't been there in a few years.

                Grand China Anaheim‎
                575 W Chapman Ave (at Harbor), Anaheim, CA

                  Try the orange chicken at Cheesecake factory (at lunch it's only like $7)! I was seriously surprised at how amazing it was!! It is perfectly little crisply coated white meat pillows with the most perfectly coated sweet sauce!

                  P.F. Changs is way over priced!! But if you go... get the mongolian beef (with noodles, not rice) that's pretty dang good!!
                  I'm addicted and I don't care!!! :yea:

                    Indeed. Corporate food rarely is equivalent to real authentic cuisine.

                      I went to my favorite chinese place in OC again sunday night and had a great meal, and enough for a superb microwave leftover meal the next evening.

                      In my opinion, it's the best thing if you're unable to go to Monterey Park or Rowland Heights. Order the Kung Pao Chicken... it's a plate full of chicken, not like the other places where you get tiny bits of chicken and tons of other things.

                      And as Trekkie Dad said, there's no pork. I would actually advise against Sweet & Sour Chicken here though. it's very standard and not as good as everything else.

                        PF Changs is overpriced, but is defintely more authentic than what I remember of Chin Chin (isn't that the place known for its salad). PF Chang does better on the appetizers than the entrees and does a great hot and sour soup. If you do go to PF Chang, make a meal from the appetizers and save some money.

                          That definitely is true. Chin Chin is just awful.

                            I'm married to a lady from Hong Kong (who's family is super picky about Chinese food) and here's my acquired (over the years) two cents...

                            * PF Changs' is over-priced, but some items are good/delicious, but it *isn't* authentic Chinese!
                            * Most American-Chinese restaurants aren't authentic either (they might be good though!)
                            * We tend to go to Westminster area when we're down in LA for "authentic."
                            * There're several "Ma's Restaurant" which is islamic/western chinese here in the Bay Area as well... maybe a small chain? They are all similar but slightly different. Their scallion pancake is quite good.

                              Do they have any of those Buddhas in the restaurant? Or does the the places have a "sharia" look & feel?

                                It's definitely more islamic in its theming.

                                  The closest restaurants are in the shopping center on the northwest corner of Euclid Street and Crescent (1.5 mi north on the I-5 freeway from Disneyland, right turn onto Euclid, left turn on Crescent, right turn into the shopping center).

                                  The Ten Ten Seafood Restaurant there underwent a change in management, refurbished the place, and I noticed some improvements in the menu and service there. It's not a huge restaurant but it offers much of what you would expect from a full service Chinese Restaurant. The Dim Sum offerings may be missing a few items of what you may expect from the larger restaurants in Rowland Heights or Monterey Park/Alhambra.

                                    PF Changs - might be pricier, but I think it's 'safe' - and I mention that because I got food poisoning from a Chinese take out place near my house........

                                        I wish Orange County would have the same posting of Health Inspection grades that Los Angeles County and many others do. I'd see a "C" grade posted in a window and I can go on the internet and see a list of their violations, which lets me know that, no, I don't think I want to go there. So I'm looking right now at the last inspection report of a Chinese restaurant that I used to go to, and they only got a 66/100, with violations including improper holding of pre-heated foods (major violation), improper handwashing (major), cockroaches (major), food storage, improperly cleaned, impure food, not maintained clean, no hot water, etc etc... nope, didn't sound like what's for dinner, so I knew to avoid it. They closed a few months after that inspection, but that was three months that, because I checked first, I knew not to go there anymore.

                                        But in Orange County, all you know walking in is, well, it's not currently shut down. Total crapshoot, and no incentive for the restaurants to try to do better, hence more random bouts of food poisoning.

                                        But the O.C. Register put up their own database of Orange County inspection scores which you can find here:

                                        (Under "Latest Violations" at the bottom)

                                        and avoid any of these:
