Cincinnati - Strip Center Chinese Yeas and Nays

e
Emm Jul 19, 2010 08:01 AM

After a disappointing experience at my favorite area Chinese-American sit-down restaurant yesterday, I'm interested in searching a little harder for hidden gems in area shopping centers. Peking Garden in Dillonvale is pretty much the gold standard as far as I'm concerned. Although I recently tried the restaurant in the shopping center on Winton Rd. adjacent to the Reagan Highway and thought the food was a pretty good value given the extremely cheap prices. I'd also give a qualified okay to the one in White Oak Shopping Center on Cheviot Rd.

    Shocked that no one has mentioned Uncle Yip's in Reading... YUM. This is what Chinese food is supposed to taste like.

      I like Casual Chinese in Newport, just off 471 at Grand (I think), next to Blockbuster.

        I sound like a broken record, but Sichuan Bistro! http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7005...

        Taste Wok on Kings Mill isn't bad. Not sure if it's still there though (been a few years). There's a fairly new place across the street from Kroger's on Montgomery Rd in Montgomery serving dim sum that's pretty good.

        The Silver Wok on Kenwood Rd. in Blue Ash is our go-to Chinese take out. There are better and there are worse, but there are none that are closer to our house.

          Thanks! I'm in the neighborhood sometimes; any particular dish you recommend?

            I've never had anything bad there, but I guess my favorite has always been the combo lo mien (boring, I know, but tasty). Right round the block is a newish Thai place, Bangkok Terrace (on Hunt Rd.) that we've been frequenting as well. I can't say I'm a Thai food expert, but I've liked what I've had there, as well.

              Not necessarily boring. Sometimes you just want familiar comfort food, which is really why I posed the question. Try the orange beef from Dillonvale if you're over that way.
