What are the decent Chinese places in Staten Island?

I find most neighborhood Chinese joints pretty ordinary to poor. But there are many I haven't been to.

Are there any places where the veggies are crisp, the sauces not heavy, the wok hey noticeable, the flavors enticing?

North or East Shore preferred, but I can't be too picky.

    Empire Schezuan by the Pathmark on Forest is pretty good.

      Do you have access to a car? Grand Sichuan House (86th St & 5h Ave.) in Bay Ridge is terrific.

        I like Island Garden, and go there frequently for lunch. .. on Bay Street, not far from Fort Wadsworth.. really great noodles, btw, and will make things spicey if you request.

          Thanks, I will check it out. I wish there were more.

          There used to be a great place out on Forest Ave. near Decker, I think. It was called Lum Chin. It's long gone.
