Chinese food in Corpus Christi

amlwood Dec 18, 2006 07:58 PM

Can anyone recommend a Chinese restaurant (sit-down) in Corpus Christi? My husband and I are staying in Port Aransas, and I know there's nothing here on the island. I'm always nervous to try a Chinese place without somebody else telling me it's good first, because if it's bad, it's usually really terrible!

    Sadly I can't offer any recommendations, but I do think you should stay away from the buffet place next to the Asian market on SPID. What they serve is not Chinese.

      By SPID do you mean South Padre Island Drive? If so, then I know the one you mean, and I will avoid it!

        I cant recommend Chinese either, but how about Vietnamese? D Noodlehouse 4701 Ayers has excellent lemon grass chicken over noodles. Their new sister restaurant (cant remember name) on Staples is also great, about a mile west of SPID. I've tried chinese and none stand out. Vietnam restaurant downtown is great but expensive.
