It can be argued that Chinese restaurants were some of the first eateries that challenged everyday Americans to begin sampling foreign, unfamiliar cuisines from places outside of Europe.
Today, it is easy to find a local restaurant serving food from India, Nepal, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, the Middle East and Ethiopia, but many of these establishments would likely never have been able to flourish had Americans not first opened their minds and palates to Chinese fare.
So for this week’s Readers’ Choice, we’re asking locals the question: what is the best Chinese restaurant in Evanston?
Vote in the poll below, and then let people know why you prefer a given restaurant by leaving a review in our business directory. By sharing your knowledge of Evanston businesses, future readers will benefit from your wisdom when seeking advice on where to find the best local grub.

Distinguishing Chinese restaurants from Pan-Asian eateries with Chinese influences can be difficult, so if we forgot to include any restaurants on the list, let us know in the comments section and we’ll add them to the list.
