I recently had two very bad experiences with Chinese food. I'm not looking even for spectacular or anything terribly special. Just a family style Chinese food restaurant where the food has a moderately good taste. I recently had to throw out the take out as t was that BAD (and I'm cheap and unfortunately for my waistline, not that discriminating).

Please recommend your favorite local Chinese food places . (No chains/PF Chang-like places please and not buffets).

I know that China town is 20 minutes away or so, but is it necessary to go out that far for good Chinese?

Based on your criteria, I'd definitely drive the 20 minutes to Chinatown.

Just ate at Happy Lamp for lunch (based on your recommendation). I have to agree that it is solid choice for Chinese food in the area.

Wow, this really shows the difference in tastes. The place in the plaza where Beldens, was the one I previously mentioned. It was by far the worst Chinese food in my life. My whole family complained and we threw most of it out.

Thank you for the recommendation though.

Hus is good in Meyer Park...good lunch special

Happy Lamp was good the time I tried it but never tried the one on Braeswood by Beldens...

Rice Bowl on West Bellfort and Fondren is real good but you gotta understand the type of place it is before you set foot in it
