    Well, ummmm...not unless you like P.F. Chang's or Pei Wei...

    We've yet to find decent Chinese in the greater Orlando area. There are some wonderful Thai restaurants and Vietnamese restaurants (mostly in downtown Orlando on 50/Colonial in Little Vietnam) but no Chinese.

    Pei Wei has been known to do a decent dan dan noodle...

    yeah, given the lack of decent Chinese restaurants, I think the cheapy (ish) ones at the malls are about as good as any to get a quick fix.

    P F Changs is really good though I must admit I like that.

    Nine dragons is still a waste of time even after all the refurbs :(

    We have a guest in at the moment who has found one that we haven't tried before called ''China Star'' take away and is right next door to the Publix closest to Formosa Gardens in the Orange Lake Town Center. They say its fantastic, huge portions, great value for money and the closest to UK chinese they have ever had - highly recommended. May be worth a try.

    We've tried both Chinese at Champions Gate and they were both very bland.
