Best Chinese Restaurants in Greater Cleveland, according to Tripadvisor

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Chinese food is timeless, and arguably the best food to order when you want to experience a true depth of flavor.

While Northeast Ohio may not be home to the expansive Chinese cuisine scenes of other cities in the United States, there are still plenty of options for those of us needing to satisfy a craving for Peking duck, General Tso’s chicken or Mongolian beef.

While these staples can be found in just about any Chinese restaurant menu, there are plenty more delicious options to tempt your palate than the usual American-Chinese fare.

We checked with our partner Stacker, which compiled a list of the 17 best Chinese restaurants in Greater Cleveland to give you new options than your usual go-to.
