  1. The only Chinese restaurant that I go to when I'm on the Cape is the Double Dragon Inn on Rte 6A & Rte 28 in Orleans: 508-255-4100. I love Chinese food and it's near very good in my opinion. You can order their luncheon specials or from the regular menu. I would highly recommend Double Dragon Inn in Orleans MA.

      thanks BK..their reviews on are abysmal. For a frame of reference where do you dine say in Boston or other Cape Cod eateries..thanks..I don't do poo poo platter Chinese if that helps..thanks

      1. re: phelana

        Double Dragan is a poo poo Chinese type of place. Tiki Port in Hyannis is better for that sort of food. Hard to top the Golden Fountain as you know. Asia in Mashpee Commons is good, but not in the area. Dragon Lite on Main St. in Hyannis can be good on occasion for a change of pace.

    2. Worlds away from y'all, but if you are inclined to travel my favorite is Peking Palace in Falmouth. Always fresh food, great service and decent selections. Special orders are honored ,I once dined there with a visiting Chinese language Phd, and was blown away by the food served. None of which was on the menu.
      Ginger lobster, crispy sea bass, steamed Chineese greens and fresh (if not authentic) sushi are some of my favorites.

      1. Give it up AP. Ya best plan a trip to Quincy KM Plaza for ds at China Pearl
        of dindin at South Garden.

          in Boston now..where is KM Plaza?? South Garden? Please!

            Here is a link with info on South Garden: I haven't been there yet, it is fairly new but I have heard great things about it. The Vietmase restaurant a few doors away is very good, we always enjoy it, China Pearl in the same complex is also good and features dim sum. The Kam Man Market is a marvelous experience, a huge place with an endless variety of Asian food items, it smells wonderful and the mish mash of dialects that you hear there is musical. The whole complex is simply wonderful and one of my favorite places to visit. It's an easy exit from Logan to the Cape.

            1. re: taddybelle

              the link does not work..what exit please..I head to Boston Sat. and need a dinner spot on the return please..

              1. re: phelana

                Try this link, phelana, you can google directions and a map from this site as well. Let me know if it doesn't work.

        2. Sorry, when I copied and pasted the link it omitted "-quincy" at the end. This should work:

          1. Phelana, please excuse me, I don't know what I'm doing wrong here as each time I try to give you the link it doesn't include "-quincy" at the end. Directions are complicated. Try the link adding "-quincy " at the end or google it: 217B Quincy Ave, Quincy 02269, 617-328-6628. Hope this helps and sorry for my ineptitude.

              taddybelle's 2/24 post on KamMan Plaza is dead on in my opinion. I'd caution that South Garden, as is the Vietnamese place, is just a square room, no frills. The huge menu is broken into sections for quick focus. if you're a gadget person the discount store to the left of the front door to KM is a hoot. If you're into natural meds the aisle stores are pure joy. The little Vietnamese lunch stall, to the right of the doors to the KM, is good. In KM, don't miss the wonderful bakery just to the right of the front doors to the grocery store. Further down, cooked duck! The fish market at the back wall is fantastic. Great frozen food offerings as well. From morning to 2 p.m. China Pearl serves dim sum. I guess what I'm saying is if it's your first time to the mall, plan to stay a while and bring a cooler. Also, look carefully at aisle 1, fruits and vegetables, they offer a dazzling choice, the Shanghai Bok Choy is so fresh and, if you read pricing closely, fruit bought by the case is a great deal.
