From dope dumplings to innovative contemporary eats, there are so many incredible Chinese restaurants in and around A-Town.
1. Grand China
Whenever someone asks for Chinese restaurant recommendations, many ATLiens would think of suggesting Grand China. This longstanding icon covers all the basics (and beyond) when you think of Chinese cuisine, but they also serve up Japanese, Thai, and other Asian dishes.
2. Big Boss Chinese
Where: Midtown Atlanta
This Midtown gem is a beloved spot for take-out or a sit-down meal of a Chinese feast. The no-nonsense dishes compliment the nostalgic and cozy atmosphere that so many ATLiens adore. Make sure to order those famous egg rolls!
3. Ruby Chows
Where: Old Fourth Ward
We love this vibrant restaurant nestled in the northeast corner of Old Fourth Ward that it featured on our round-up of beloved AAPI-owned restaurants across the A. With funky and fresh décor, you’ll be just as transfixed by your surroundings as you will by their awesome steamed buns!
Where: Decatur & Alpharetta
This Decatur gem is so beloved that they had to open up another location in Alpharetta. Head Chef Wan Hai worked at restaurants in China, Europe, and across the globe before setting up shop in the ATL. Whatever you do, you have to stock up on the dim sum/small plates when ordering here.
5. Orient Express
Hop aboard the orient express for a Asian feast of different, yet equally delicious cuisines. A historic train was converted into this top-notch eatery, not only serving up tempting Chinese dishes, but you can explore other parts of Asia via your taste buds like their sensational sushi, or staple Thai plates.

We’ve been flocking to Brookhaven for decades for the extensive Chinese menu at Chin Chin. Our go-to dishes include the Mongolian Beef, with one of their awesome rice dishes on the side. There’s also a Japanese menu on offer, being beloved by many Atlantans for their sushi.
7. Urban Hai
Where: Midtown Atlanta
If it’s Peking Roasted Duck you’re after, then you’ve got to try out the offering at Urban Hai in Midtown Atlanta. With an unbeatable menu, packed to the brim with authentic Chinese dishes, then make sure to check this hotspot out next time you’re craving Chinese food.
8. Chong Qing Hot Pot
Of course, we couldn’t comply this list without a mention from Atlanta’s Chinatown. Although not a traditional Chinatown like other cities in the states, this food hall is not to be missed if you’re a lover of Chinese cuisine. We’re obsessed with Chong Qing Hot Pot, who serve up a Sichuan-centric menu so you can expect a little bit of spice.
9. Doc Chey’s Noodle House
Where: Grant Park & VA-Highland
Taking influence from a few Asian culinary techniques and flavors, this noodle house is a go-to for many ATLiens. They are committed to serving up affordable, pan-Asian food and they do not disappoint.
