Been to Chicago many times. However, it was our first time to Chinatown. Walked up and saw this place on the main walk. Went in and fell in love. The food was tops. And I've been to our Chinatowns in LA, San Fran and NYC....More

While visiting family in Chicago, we went to Chinatown. They had been to Emperors Choice before and it did not disappoint. From the appetizers, the wonton soup and the very large entree dishes, the food was delicious. The restaurant was very clean, the staff very...More

We went for dinner at 5pm. Service was great. All tables were filled when we left. Our waitress was happy to take our photo and try to convince my youngest (pickiest) daughter to try something new. Four adults shared beef with broccoli, vegetable fried rice,...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
