Is there better Chinese in Boston than Peach Farm?

When I was a young and sprightly graduate student in the 1990s, Peach Farm was the place to go. In the intervening years, I've returned there from time to time and it was still pretty solid. Are there any other worthwhile contenders that should be considered?

  1. Best little restaurant and Taiwan cafe are favorites of mine. But it depends on what you seek -- fish tank freshies or solid home style goodies (pork chop and rice plate) or other?

        China King, whose owners used to run King Fung Garden, is a personal favorite, especially for its lamb dishes and Shanghai noodles. Vinh Sun does excellent roast meat dishes for short money. Peach Farm remains reliable, as you say. The popularity of Gourmet Dumpling House mystifies me.

        1. re: Jenny Ondioline

          Jenny, while I really like China King, Peach Farm, Taiwan Cafe and Dumpling Cafe, I think it would be very difficult for two people to go to Gourmet Dumpling House, get a Sliced Fish Szechuan Style, a Beef w/ Longhorn Peppers and a mini juicy dumplings (albeit the bigger thicker kind) and not come out of there thinking you had a really great meal.

        2. I'd add the restaurant part of Great Taste Bakery to the list for solid Cantonese food.
