Help: Chinese Delivery in Torrance (405 / 110)!!

My company has decided to have a lunch catered next week, and they want Chinese food. I've had it with them ordering repeated lunches from Panda Express or Hong Kong Express. Any Chowhounder's know of any places near the 405/110 that serve authentic Chinese food?

Please save me from the bland places that pretend that they know what Chinese food is!!
(Hopefully I'm not doomed anymore to seeing large pieces of chicken, with the breading falling off, smothered with a sauce of yellow-colored quasi "lemon-sauce" dripping over it...)

thanks, all!

  1. Sea Empress in Gardena, Western and Redondo Beach Blvd, less than 10 minutes from the 110/405 exchange.
    1636 W Redondo Beach Blvd
    Gardena, CA 90247
    (310) 538-6868

    About as good as you are going to get in this area. Canto restaurant. On a side note, they offer one of the better dim sums outside of SGV.

    There is another Chinese restaurant on Western by 182nd St..
    Little China -
    18026 S Western Ave, Gardena, CA
    Korean style, though the staff speaks mandarin. Probably because of all thhe korean clientelle in the area. They serve kimchi before the meal. They are ok, better than Panda (but what isnt?).

    One more on Western and 182nd, Fu Shing. Ate there twice. Americanized on very unimpressed.

    Sea Empress has banquets, so they are equipped to serve larger portions of food. I would go with them over Litte China.
