I was feeling hungry so I thought I'll take a walk across from my hotel. Found this place lots of people ordering takeaway so I looked at the menu, I wanted to eat in tonight. So I ordered the half BBQ duck. It was great...More

We got the sweet and sour pork as well as the shrimp with lobster sauce. Portions are generous. Prices seem fair. Typical atmosphere of most the smaller eateries in Chinatown....not the most appealing, bathrooms a little rundown but, hey, as long as the food is...More

Been there twice. Love it. Good taste, good amount. Typical southern China local food. The youtiao is not the best - and you should try ones from northern China.

BBQ King House is reputed to be one of the two best restaurants for Peking Duck in Chicago, and the reputation is well earned. The duck skin is crisp and flavorful, with sweet steamed buns, hoisin sauce and scallions. The "basic" duck dinner ($33.00) comes...More

We asked for a recommendation from the locals and they gave us this place. We are from Los Angeles and New York City - so we thought we had a pretty descent gauge of what was good. I can say that this was exceptionally authentic...More

I love char siu and roasted duck, eat them in Hong Kong, NYC, Singapore anywhere's that good and I find this place is average at best. The meat doesn't have that heavenly roasted flavor, missing the honey sauce and after few days the BBQ is...More

Peking Duck for 4 was incredible. The duck was delicious, well prepared and fresh. The rest of the accompaniments were just as good. A meal for 4 for 33 bucks in Chicago is a steal and one of the better meals I've had in Chicago...More

I eat Chinese from time to time but it's always the American version with the same 25 lunch specials. This time, on a visit to Chicago, I decided to try this well-regarded restaurant and I'm really glad that I did. First good sign was that...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
