You say, “I love Little Szechuan. I keep hoping for something closer or a place that delivers that is awesome, but Little Szechuan is the best” and “Consistently good food, lots of locals eat there. Nice staff.”

OUR PICKS
1. Tasty China
Peripatetic chef Peter Chang may have left Atlanta (again), but Tasty China keeps cranking out those dishes we associate with Chang. And you know what? Fabulous, that’s what. That dry-fried eggplant with hot and numbing spices and tufts of cilantro has never been better — the surface all tingle and crunch, the inside like vegetal custard. I may have no dish in Atlanta that I love to inhale quite like Tasty China’s dan dan noodles with ground pork; they pop with peanut and scallion and thrum with hot pepper oil.”

My favorite Chinese restaurant is Hong Kong Harbour on Cheshire Bridge. Love the food, dim sum and late hours. Plus it is a favorite of many Bravo TV Top Chefs!

For authentic Taiwanese cuisine, you can’t beat Cafe 101 on Buford highway.

I adore the Orient Express in the Vinings. Not only is the food always hot and fresh but the service is great too. Great date night place, its so cool to be dining in an actual train car.

I have preliminary two criteria: (1) Is the table pre-set with chopsticks and no forks? (2) Are there actual Chinese people from the neighborhood eating there?

DEFINITELY NOT GOLDEN BUDDHA in DECATUR – they must have changed owners. Last time I ate at Golden Buddha, I thought I was eating at a mall kiosk.

Little Szechuan buford highway in Doraville. Excellent food but they have not updated the place since the Carter Admin.

Hands down: Bobo China off 29 in Lawrenceville. Normally few if any Anglos eat there (but two separate menus are available; get the non-Americanized one). It’s an almost all Chinese clientele. Best Szechuan/Chinese food available in the metro area by far.

I recognize the pic above as the hot and numbing beef at Peter Cheng’s/Tasty China I & II. That gets my top vote. Also love Canton Cooks in Sandy Springs.

Hong Kong Buffet on Cone St in downtown Atlanta. There really is no question and no debate. This restaurant sets the standard for oustanding Chinese food in the region.

Hsu’s located downtown on Peachtree Center Avenue is by far the best. The food and service is exquisite and the bar is fully stocked with the finest adult beverages.

Tasty China I&II is the best. For” newcomer” looking for a good chinese restaurant in west cobb, try Hong Kong Express on Cobb Pkwy near Mars Hill Rd or House of Lu on Dallas hwy in Paulding co.both good though not like Tasty China.
