Chinese in Scottsdale
Hi ... I'm a SF bay area hound, in phx for about 3 wks .... I need a break from the great mexican and surprisingly Italian food down here -- looking for a good chinese lunch spot in the Scottsdale area ... anything works ... mandarin, szechwan, hakka, hunan ... whatever. Any recs? Much appreciated ...
1/2 Chinese, born & raised in Scottsdale & the whole family feels that if you're looking for good Chinese, you're best off driving a bit down toward Mesa/Chandler. We like Tao Garden & Best Hong Kong for dinner. China King & C-Fu can be good too. We go to those two for dim sum.
For Chinese food, we're always heading down the 101 & turning east.
I do want to try Nee House though. And in a different location, we often did Jade Palace for work lunches. Wouldn't go there over the others if time wasn't an issue though.
ccl1111, You will love Nee House, it is on par w/ Best Hong Kong and Tao Garden. The table next to us the other evening had ordered the whole roast duck...it looked as good as what I have had @ Best Hong Kong! I agree w/ you about Jade Palace...while it is very good 'Americanized Chinese Food'...better is to be found in the Valley and worth the trip.
Very cool. We will have to check it out. We're in what is now termed South Scottsdale so it will still be a trek but that is the one new thing my 75 year old, China born, restaurant-for-his-whole-life pop will still go try. He actually worked with the owner from Tao Garden at the original Trader Vic's about 30 years ago. : )
Our favorite is the Shanghai Club in the Pima Crossing which is located to the west of Route 101 at Shea as well as George and Sons which is located in another strip mall on the southwest corner of Frank Lloyd Wright and Via Linda.

Shanghai Palace on Thomas Road used to have a separate Chinese menu that was quite good. Anything else you order is at your own risk.
