Top two Chinese restaurants in Michigan for me

I'm so happy this place is close to our home. I grew up in New York, where Chinese food seems VERY different compared to here. This place is very close to what I remember as a child. Their string beans are great, too.

You don't come here for the décor. Located near a gas station, Best China is one of the most authentic Chinese food places in the Canton, MI, area. I was first introduced to the place many years ago by Chinese friends. At the time, the owner did not speak any English and the menu was in Chinese with poor English... More

The uninviting dining area is clearly an afterthought. Obviously this place is basically a carry-out restaurant. The room looks like a break room for the employees. A TV was blaring a Chinese language soap opera which the staff enjoyed while they ate. The decor is almost non-existent, the lighting harsh. The few tables have no salt, pepper, soy sauce, or...

If I ever did find the "Best" Chines restaurant I guess I would never go anywhere else. I personally do not think this place is the best. BUT, it is good and I would eat there again. Everyone has their own idea of what the best Chinese food should taste like. Based on how popular this place is, many people... More

I love Chinese food, but too many of the restaurants serve what I would call mess hall "slop." Not Best China. The Crab Wontons are one of my favorites. Portions are a good size. My husband and I split a single Almond Boneless Chicken dinner. We get carryout, but there is a small seating area. Mighty tasty and well prepared... More

We really enjoyed the food. Had the Lo Mein, General Tso's chicken and a noodle dish. All were fresh and tasty. The Generals Chicken had nice chunks of meat and lighter breading (versus some that is fried breading and little meat). Good carry out option for the area. It is located in a very ugly strip mall. Would definitely recommend.

The service for carry out is fine, the food is above average and a tad bit on the pricier side. Every time I've been here, it's swarming with Asian looking diners, winging chopsticks like weapons at their dinners, perhaps they've got to get back to work in a hurry from their lunch break, or else they really like scarfing down...

Ordered vegetable fried rice, and orange chicken. Not the usual glop--but the unusual glop. The orange chicken had strips of orange peel, which was something new to see. The chicken had a gooey breading, and the sauce was a cut above what I usually find at a Chinese restaurant. The best thing about the fried rice was that it was... More

Despite its unassuming appearance and location in a strip mall, Best China serves the most authentic Chinese family-style dishes that I've had so far in Michigan. The people who work here are friendly and they never fail to give good recommendations on what dishes to order when asked. They're also willing to tweak the recipes of their dishes slightly to...

They make the standard Americanized Chinese glop, if you want it. But if that's what you want, go somewhere else. This is where you go for the real deal, real Shanghai area Chinese food. Ask for the Chinese menu -- there are English translations, and if you're not clear, they'll be happy to help you out. The pan-fried noodles are... More
