Pretty much everyone loves Chinese food. It’s cheap, you get a lot of food for your money and it tastes good. Like every city, Baltimore has a lot of fantastic places to go to get the best Chinese food around.

Hunan Wok

2835 Smith Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21209
(410) 486-3267

Hunan Wok is a favorite of our own Adam May. They have excellent crab wontons and good lunch specials and combination plates. Make sure to have a huge appetite; portion sizes are large. Adam loves the Sesame Shrimp and string beans.

Jesse Wong’s Asean Bistro

8775 Centre Park Drive
Columbia, MD 21045
(410) 772-5300

Asean Bistro has an extensive, tasty menu. They have crab rangoons, sesame chicken and crispy beef—all the mainstays. But they also have things like orange duck, crispy fish roll and Kowloon shrimp. It might be hard to decide what to get for dinner, so if you order something for tomorrow’s lunch, we won’t tell.

Paul Chen’s Hong Kong Restaurant

2426 N. Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21218
(410) 235-8745

Paul Chen’s has an incredibly extensive menu—there are over a hundred choices. While we haven’t tried everything on the menu, everything we have tried has been very good. We especially recommend the kung pao lamb.

P.F. Chang’s

600 E. Pratt Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
(410) 649-2750

While it’s a chain restaurant, P.F. Chang’s is usually mentioned as the best Chinese in the area by Baltimore Magazine. With their tasty crab wontons and Mongolian beef, it’s hard to argue with that. Go for happy hour and enjoy cheap appetizers and food to end your day on a great note and leave work behind.

    Maybe its because I’m hungry right now, but that dish pictured in PF Chang’s review looks delicious. Does anybody know what it is?

  • Just Hungry

    Yikes! I didn’t know they were going to post my full name online.

  • Michele Holder

    It actually looks like Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill!

  • Still Hungry

    Bang Bang Shrimp. That sounds tasty and exciting. I’ll have some of that as well.

    I work in Columbia, right around the corner from the Asean Bistro, and my co-workers and I agree that their food is over rated. Much like in the NFL, when the “regulars” make it into the Pro-Bowl, I think the Asean Bistro for some reason has been type casted as the perennial frontrunner in Columbian Chinese Food. That’s just not the case. I stopped going there after my third visit, the first day the General Tso’s was delicious and the next two visits, it was be terrible (overcooked rice and slimy chicken). That seems to be the general consensus among my building; Asean Bistro is overrated and inconsistent. Instead, we now frequent the Hunan Legend in Columbia, better food all around each time.

  • Just Hungry

    Well, I know I’m just hungry, but in my opinion there’s nothing worse than an overcooked, slimy General Tso. But if we’re going outside of the Baltimore metro area I would like to add my favorite, Oriental East, in Silver Springs. Their lamb is always cooked just right, and they actually made me like rice again. I never cared for rice unless it accompanied something that made it tasteless, but I can eat theirs plain. But next time I have their Kung Pao Lamb I might ask the chef to lighten up on the peanuts.

  • Still Hungry

    Or ask for cashews and see if I still get a chock full.

  • Ronnise

    PF Chang’s is the best, have been many times and they never let men and spouse down.

  • tate

    PF Changs is horrible.

  • TANO

    Try litle china in middle river. I travel across the beltway for the food there

  • becky

    I agree about Asian Bistro in Columbia, it is not good. Hunan Garden in Eldersburg however is very good but it is really only carry out you cannot sit in there and eat.

  • Zeph

    I used to like Paul Chen’s, but they got arrogant and RUDE.
    What happened to Uncle Lee’s?
    Orient Express on St. Paul is very good.

  • Lillia

    PF Chang is not even in the same boat with the other chinese restaurants. It’s chinese food modified into american dishes.
