Good eat-in Chinese restaurant (not buffet) in Brampton?

Can anyone recommend a Chinese restaurant in Brampton which is eat-in but not a buffet?

    Asian Garden is a smallish restaurant whose feel echoes Spadina Chinatown restos.. You can always order by asking what's fresh that day-which vegetable, live fish, etc., they can recommend. Although they rock the plastic table-cloth covers and strip mall vibe, they're charming in a way, though a bit dingy.
    Kingsley is a banquet-style dining room with cart service dim-sum, live seafood tanks, etc., and a more extended menu. The clientele at Kingsley seems to draw from the chinese and non-chinese groups alike. It's an overall nicer "experience" (the only place my large, extended family will drag us in the city, for which I've developed an almost visceral aversion, mind you). I'd give Kingsley a try if you're set on eating Chinese in Brampton (and not driving to Missisagua or Markham/Richmond Hill.)

      For a pleasant change, my family has decided to head to Grand Chinese Cuisine, located in the Doubletree Hilton Hotel at 655 Dixon Road. This is a bit of a jog away (technically on the edges of Malton/Etobicoke), but for fine dining Chinese, this is one of the best, and not too far to lure my folks from Brampton! Will report back!

        Not sure what the OP's definition of "good Chinese" is but Kingsley is good authentic Cantonese cooking.

        Any suggestions from Mississauga would work for me also.

          Correct me if I'm wrong since I don't live in Brampton (only visit) but I think there are only two Chinese restaurants, Asian Garden (24 Kennedy Rd. N.) and Kingsley (50 Kennedy Rd. S.). For quality & variety (mind you, no Richmond Hill/Markham resto), I would go with Kingsley while Asian Garden is cheaper and okay (not great).

            If you don't mind mixing it up a bit, try China Garden at Hurontario and Ray Lawson BLVD. Great Hakka style Chinese food.
