I'm not affiliated with them whatsoever, my only interest here is to share an experience that I know many of us long for here in Cary - flavorful, unique eats! Yes we are lucky to have some (but not a ton) great restaurants in the area, but for the most part we are surrounded by chains and bland food, so it's important we support those local restaurants that really nail it, especially those that go out on a limb with their cuisine.

35 in Cary. Amazing. They have 2 menus, an American Chinese menu (spring rolls, general tso, lo mein etc) and a traditional Chinese. The dishes off of the traditional menu are out of this world. I'm bummed I didn't find this place earlier and have been suffering mediocre Asian cuisine. The cumin lamb may be one of the best dishes I've had here in the triangle hands down.

Thought I'd share for folks looking for an interesting diverse flavorful menu. They don't advertise, the menu is nowhere to be found online, they don't even have a website. The building is tough to see from the road. This is a hidden gem in Cary for sure, if someone didn't recommend it to me I would have never found out, passing on the love!

We've been there many times and have had some wonderfully authentic and delicious meals. The problem is that it is not ALWAYS wonderful. We've raved to friends about the place in the past and when the 4 of us dined there, the food was totally forgettable.

We now prefer C & T Wok in Morrisville. Very authentic, also both American and Chinese menus and we've never been disappointed. I work with 2 Chinese physicians who turned me on to this place

This has been my experience too. Been there twice, first time blew me away (and I came on CD and raved about it), second time was Meh. Cumin Lamb was a favorite, as was the Beef Tendon Hot Pot.

Not sure if it's still true, but Tapei 101 used to have a really good cumin Lamb, and Superwok has also served me some good (but again, not consistent) authentic meals. I've heard C&T Wok is good too, and there's a place in Ch Hill that I've been wanting to try, name escapes me. A few places in Durham, but can't remember either.


Twingles, it's on Kildaire Farm, not too far from Maynard. It's in a buidling that looks like a typical office building, with a parking garage around back. You really have to look for it. If you're heading north (toward DT Cary) it will be on the right. I'm sure you can google it, and find on Yelp, or Urban Spoon, or etc.

They do have a website actually where the address is located - it's Google

Now you know I'm not affiliated with them

I have been spoilt by the food at 35...the cheap chinese strip mall joints dont do it for me anymore. The 35 special fish fillet, the chicken hot pot, the yangchow fried rice - amazing!!! Their lunch menu is pretty good as well for a quick meal - $6.95 for the entree, soup and drink.

"35 Chinese in Cary". Title sure fooled me. I was going to argue as I know there are more than 35 chinese in Cary until I read the OP. LOL

I'm curious - how do you know if the food is authentic? Are you Chinese?

CT Wok on Morrisville Carpenter and 54 is where I go for the authentic Szechuan Chinese food. My Chinese friends highly recommended this place, and it didn't disappoint. I didn't realize how different the authentic food is from typical Americanized-chinese food I have eaten elsewhere. The other day, when I was there for a takeout, someone (chinese) behind me in the line mentioned that they drove all the way from Chapel Hill to eat there.

I have never heard of 35 in Cary. Will try it next time.
