New Chinese restaurant, Clayton, MO

  • 5

A new Chinese restaurant has opened in Clayton called Best Chinese. Would really like to get a take on it from some of you Chowhounds. I'm looking for a good Chinese restaurant nearby. Thanks!

  1. Marymac,
    I have not heard about or seen Best Chinese. Do you know where it is located?

    House of Wong, at 46 North Central (S.E. corner at Maryland), 314-726-6291, is very good.
    It can get a bit crazy at lunch hour, but the food is always freshly cooked and well spiced. There are also Thai items on the menu, as well as a nice vegetarian selection.

    Enjoy, p.j.

      Best Chinese just had its grand opening March 12. It is located at 7923 Forsyth Blvd. I'm really curious about what folks think of it.

        Ah, the space that Rasoi vacated. I will try to check it out later this week.

          That would be great, P.J., thanks!

    2. I actually went there last night thinking that Rasoi was still there. Although I was mistaken, the food was decent. My friend had the pot-stickers which were nicely browned on the bottom, and well flavored. My meal of shrimp and beef with a bunch of vegetables had good flavoring and quality meats, but what surprised me was the time it took after ordering for the food to appear--I don't know if they are still ironing out the kinks, were hesitant about cooking too much, or are focused on cooking things only when they need to be cooked. A large portion of their dishes had shimp if that is any indication of quality. I do know that they pride themselves on using only vegetable oil and no MSG.

      If you are looking for good authentic Chinese (Best Chinese did have a somewhat limited menu with mostly american style Chinese food--as far as I could tell) I would direct you towards Olive where there are a bunch of well reviewed places (though I don't remember their names). Hope that helped.
