Good chinese in the albany area?

we moved up to the area recently and we're still trying to find some good restaurants. any recommendations on good chinese woud be appreciated. also,one that serves brown rice would be nice. my wife only likes brown rice. one place said they could make it and proceeded to make fried rice from white. DUH!

  1. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have brown rice, but CCK on Central is very good - see the Times Union's review here:
    I've been eating there and at Ocean Palace (the owners' old restaurant) for years and years - surprisingly solid dim sum and a pretty wide range of offerings.

    1. I haven't found good Chinese in the area in 33 years of looking.

      1. i cant say enough about CCK....fell in love with the place. never disappointing and most often surpasses my expectations.....

        gerchak have you been? i'd be curious to know why you might not like CCK....its great chinese food

        1. My SO said CCK is good. I haven't been yet. Not much ethnic food in the area.
