YOUR PICKS

1) Little Szechuan in Doraville

You say, “Year after year, still the best Chinese food in the area. There may be newer, fancier and prettier Chinese restaurants around, but ‘Little Szechuan’ is still the best.”

2) Golden Buddha in Decatur

3) Tasty China in Marietta

4) Canton Cooks in Sandy Springs

5) Grand China in Buckhead

OUR PICKS

1) Tasty China

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “This gem is one of the best Sichuan restaurants in the area, even though some of my favorites, such as the scallion bubble pancakes, left with the exit of chef Peter Chang years ago. …  It’s still hard to beat its fiery version of dan dan noodles, with spaghetti-like noodles, vegetables and lots of chili oil.” See her complete round-up for more on each of these Chinese treasures.

Golden Buddha is my favorite “American Chinese” restaurant, but for more authentic/adventurous food, Li’l Szech is the winner!

Dynastic Buffet, Canton Highway & Piedmont Road (Cobb County), has such a wide variety of appetizers and entrees, and everything is excellent, especially the fish dishes. And at a low price!

The absolute best one, especially for dim sum, is Oriental Pearl in Chamblee. There’s also one which was recently reviewed in Atlanta magazine which is fantastic, cheap, and unknown called Northern China Eatery on Buford Highway near Shallowford. It’s a different region of Chinese cuisine, but it’s fantastic as well. It’s also super-reasonable.

Chopstix in Chastain Square Shopping Center in Buckhead on Roswell Rd has to be the best chinese restuarant in the area. Great food and superb wait staff!
