Chinese food in Oxford?

Any recs for good Chinese food in Oxford?

For example, I have heard mixed opinions about Shangai 30s, a restaurant across Christ Church? What about Peninsula? Any other recommendations?

Thanks many.

  1. I've tried Noodle Bar near Gloucester Green. The English think its fantastic, I say its so so, if you like mono sodium glutamate. There's a Malaysian restaurant on St Michael's street called Makan La aka Nosebag. It's pretty authentic. I've had better chicken curries but in Oxford, I would consider it pretty good. The Mee Goreng (Fried Noodles / Vermicelli) is great. Same price as Noodle Bar which is about 5 pounds per dish.
