Where can I find Authentic Chinese (HK Style) in Broward?

Hi. I used to live in Flushing, NY. I've been to several restaurants there that had great food and modern decor (they call them cafes). However, I haven't been able to find any chinese cafes in Broward. Somebody posted a comment that Silver Pond was the best and had upscale decor. I don't know where they got that idea. I went there and the place looked run down and old. The food was acceptable but not great. Can somebody point me in the right direction? I'm looking for modern chinese cuisine and decor. Thanks.

    You'll have to drive up to Boca Raton, but i think Gary Woo's is the type of place you're looking for. Reminds me of some of my favorite Chinese places in Manhattan (Moma Buddha, etc.). Not high end, but not the typical Chinese dive you find in S. Florida. http://www.garywooasianbistro.com/

        Hong Kong City Barbeque has very good food but, alas, you will find the same problem with the decor. It is located north of SP on 441 just north of commercial on the west side of the street. My suggestion . . . forget the decor and give SP another try. I've always had decent luck with the food. Service and decor are another issue.

          thanks for the suggestion, but I went to HK City Barbecue and it was horrible. Too much MSG in the food. Even MSG in the vegetables.

            Thanks for the warning! I get sick from MSG, and restaurateurs are notorious for lying about it!
