Super Dragon has been many locals’ favorite Chinese food getaway for years, and they sure live up to the reputation. The generous portion doesn’t bring down the food quality at all. Rather, if you are looking for a place where “everything is just so equally delicious,” Super Dragon is your choice. Plus, they have a ton of specialty Chinese dishes, too, if you’re in a more adventurous mood.

Is it even possible to talk about Chinese food without talking about the famous Szechuan cuisines? We don’t think so. Chengdu Delight has one of the most authentic menus across the Valley. If you love spicy Chinese food, you need to try the real spicy Chinese food here. We know it’s Covid and all, but once everything goes back to normal, we’re so going for the spicy hot pot. Who’s down?

Did you know that noodle alone is a whole culture itself in the Chinese world? China Magic Noodle House is considered one of the best Chinese restaurants in Phoenix because it features authentic handmade noodles. If you think you know about Chinese noodles, double-check your knowledge with their menu. Heads up, however, they’re known for heavy spicing. So make sure you know what you’re heading into!

If you love Dim Sum — small plates of Chinese snacks, street food, and desserts, you will love Great Wall Cuisine. This is one of the best-known Dim Sum restaurants in the valley.

Besides being one of the best Chinese restaurants in Phoenix valley, Shaanxi Garden is also famous for its BBQ menu. They mostly come in skewers, just like how BBQ was done in the streets in China. And in our humble opinions, nothing beats a handful of BBQ skewers after a rough workday. They’re also one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in the valley.
