The place is small; last time I was there we were the only non-Asians....proof it's good!

I have to second C & T Wok in Morrisville, they are fantastic and have a large following.

We haven't tried the Peking Duck there, but we LOVE their lunch specials. One of my favorite lunch spots locally =)

Peking Garden in N. Raleigh off Six Forks Road is clean and excellent food. No buffet. Owner, Cody, is great! Been dining there since we moved back to NC in 1998. Take friends and family there and never been disappointed.

Imperial Garden in the shopping plaza at Lead Mine and Sawmill has been good every time we've eaten there.

Umm, I don't want to see your review of Greek restaurants then.

There's a place next to Bruegger's Bagels in Cary on Maynard near Kildaire. They changed the sign, but when it originally opened it was this shady looking storefront covered in a white curtain, white christmas lights around a sign that was hand done that said "chinese massage". Now it says something like Yucca Foot Massage or something, but the first thing I thought of was the "rub and tug" lol.

The thing that I find I miss most from Columbia, SC is Miyo's/M. Cafe which did a semi-gourmet take on Chinese cuisine, especially Szechuan. Anybody know of what the closest approximation is here in the Triangle? I love to cook Szechuan and have gotten pretty good at kung pao, but sometimes you want to leave the cooking to somebody else!

Super Wok in Cary, Happy China in Durham, Gourmet Kingdom in Carrboro - I think there are a few more as well but I've only tried these. Really good authentic Szechuan!

Care to elaborate on that? (as in: "how do YOU know?")
