New to the area, need suggestions for good Chinese Restaurants from Modesto to Stockton. Any Chinese cuisine is fine.
Thanks in advance

    All in Stockton:

    Both China Palace (West Lane @ March Lane) and Dynasty Seafood (Benjamin Holt Drive @ Pacific Ave) in Stockton are good for dinner and dim sum. At Dynasty, ask if they have anything special off the menu - last Sunday, we had a steamed rock cod that was awe-inspiring.

    Avoid Dave Wong's and On Lock Sam (both highly rated by the local paper), unless you like very Americanized gloppy Chinese food. They are both capable of doing very good Chinese food (for a local Chinese civic group, for instance), but they don't have to for most of their clientele, so they don't.

    King's House (El Dorado Street @ Market Street, across from the police station) is also quite good in a divey kinda way.

    Chef Chu's (Thornton Road just north of Davis Road) is also good, altho it's been a couple of years since we've been there.
