What is the Best Chinese Restaurant in Providence to Celebrate New Year's?

creamy Feb 10, 2008 05:46 PM

Friends and I want to celebrate Chinese New Year's. We hunger for perfect noodles, sauteed bok choi, crackling roasted duck, shrimp with mushrooms in oyster sauce and to quench thirst with a hot pot of black tea (or a cold Tsing Tao). Hey, we'll settle for freshly steamed dim sum. I think the date just past or is upon us. Any suggestions?

    Hi creamy.After reading your post,I had a hard time coming up with an answer until I read in another post from a woman who suggested Quan's Kitchen in North Attleboro.I had to agree with her.They have a nice lounge and the food is always good.They advertise on T.V. all the time in the Providence market.Their website is quanskitchen.com.They are on Route 1.I am sure there are other places out there.I just can't think of one.

      I enjoy Quan's but recognize that it is Chinese -American food not authentic Chinese. For more authentic flair, I would recommend Lucky Garden in North Providence.

      Just noticed this post after posting about Iron Wok in Seekonk, which is a great little Chinese restaurant w/ some authentic dishes in Seekonk. They had some standard New Year's dishes on the specials board yesterday, like dumplings and lion's head meatball and what I assume was whole fish.

          I'll try Quan's Kitchen, Lucky Garden and Iron Wok. I have tried the place on Atwells and it is good. My gut tells me Iron Wok might be the best for the New Year's meal. Thanks to all!
