Sacramento Chinese for a group
There are three places that are my go to places for downtown/midtown: Fortune House, New Canton, and Mayflower. Nothing sensationaly, but good solid Chinese.
New Canton Restaurant
2523 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818
Fortune House Seafood Restaurant
1211 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818
Mayflower Chinese Cuisine
3022 L St, Sacramento, CA 95816
Can't speak to Mayflower - may have to get over there.
Second Fortune House. Solid Cantonese food.
As to New Canton, I'd have to disagree. Not with the recommendation, but with the "nothing sensational" comment. I've only been there for dim sum in the last 5 years or so, and maybe my (Happy Garden) standards are low, but that's some really good stuff.
