Best Chicago Chinese Restaurants
by Natalie Fisher

Dining at some of Chicago's best Chinese restaurants in Chinatown and Uptown, we tried several specialty dishes. Here are our Chinese Restaurant Reviews:

Evergreen Restaurant- This authentic Chinatown restaurant seems to be always packed with locals who have been dining there for years. At this first stop, we tried the Peking duck and approved it with five gold stars. While waiting for the other Chinese dishes, we could overhear the locals talking about how they have been coming here for years, which must be a good thing.

Evergreen's Menu- Also worth a try is the Sizzling Peking Shrimps that come on a sizzling plate with a spicy sauce and the Triple Delight which is a combination of beef, chicken, and shrimp stir fried with mushrooms.

Furama Restaurant- Furama Chinese restaurant features inexpensive but excellent dim sum. Parking is not an issue as a free parking lot is located next to the restaurant.

Furama's Menu- We ordered Braised Duck with seafood vegetables as well as the Cantonese Roast Duck. If you're in the mood for a crispy delicacy, we recommend the Roast Duck.

Hai Yen Chinese Restaurant- Hai Yen is an uptown restaurant that was recommended to us for the bubble tea. The bottom line is we came for the bubble tea and left filled and happy. This traditional Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine restaurant cooks with fresh herbs and sauces and also gives you the opportunity to do the same with their fondue and grills.

Hai Yen's Chinese Menu - From the Chinese menu, we ordered the Red Snapper and the Fresh Shrimp cooked without its shell in a spicy salt and pepper sauce. As an accompanying dish, the crispy fresh rice noodles with seafood and vegetables were a perfect complement.

Happy Chef Chinese Restaurant- A popular dim sum restaurant is the Happy Chef Chinese restaurant, which is considered to be one of the best dim sum restaurants in Chicago's Chinatown. The tables are covered with the white garbage bags, which added to our dim sum dining experience.

Happy Chef's Menu- In addition to the dim sum, we tried some of Happy Chef's vegetarian dishes such as the Braised Tofu with shitake mushroom and the Braised Black Mushroom and Bok Choy in oyster sauce. Both dishes are very tasty and worth ordering.

Lao Sze Chuan- Lao Sze Chuan is the perfect restaurant if you like authentic Szechuan cuisine. The food is prepared with spices and seasonings imported directly from China.

Lao Sze Chuan's Menu- At this restaurant, we made a bold move and ordered the Chili Rabbit. It was absolutely delicious. The truth is if I didn't know that it was rabbit, I wouldn't have been able to tell.

Moon Palace Restaurant- Moon Palace Chinese restaurant, located in Chinatown, serves traditional Shanghai cuisine and attracts a more youthful crowd. It is known for its friendly customer service, quality food, and relaxed atmosphere.

Moon Palace's Menu- We recommend the Shanghai Style Eel Fish, Chicken Shanghai Style, and the Fried Pork Chop with salt and pepper.
