Would appreciate any suggestions for great Chinese or Thai food in the Birmingham Area.

    The best authentic Chinese in BHM is the Red Pearl out on West Valley (Sichuan) followed by Mr. Chen's in Hoover (more Taiwanese). Red Pearl also has a nice market and they are expanding. The S&P calamari and double spicy chicken is excellent at the RP. Skip the xiao long bao at both - straight from the freezer.

    Thai - nothing that great here and Surin is just ehh.

    For Viet, I like Saigon Noodle House out on 280 in the Target shopping center better than Pho Que Huoung on Greensprings. Good bahni mi, spring rolls, and vermicelli.
