Spring Rolls. Mongolian Beef. Sweet and Sour Chicken.

The mere thought of real quality Asian food is enough to send joy to my taste buds. So I've been dialing it up in search of the best Chinese that Cedar Rapids has to offer.

If you're craving the best Chinese food take out, you must check out these favorite places of mine. I have declared them the BEST in Chinese Food that Cedar Rapids has to offer!

Ting's Red Lantern - located at 540 Boyson Rd NE, this is a hands down favorite of many. With a 3.9 (out of 5) score, Zomato.com declares Ting's a champion. From the simple things like sweet and sour soup to more elaborate dishes, Ting's has a lot of fans, including me.

Meanwhile, Trip Advisor fans crowns Sushi House at 2665 Edgewood Parkway SW the best in town. I agree, they have incredible sushi. Fresh and delicious with lots of options. The dragon roll is very tasty, and I'd also suggest you try the vegetarian choices.

The Silver Dragon at 3305 1st Ave, SE is a winner, according to Yelp reviewers. I ordered take out appetizers and was impressed with their quality and the restaurant's service. I thought their egg rolls and crab rangoons were excellent. I'll be back for more!

East China at 2317 Mount Vernon Rd SE is my second "go-to" take out place lately (as it is nearby both work and home) and I just love the cozy vibe and the friendly staff of family there. I love their shrimp fried rice and the chicken Lo Mein.

Finally I adore Phong Lan Vietnamese restaurant for a delicious Asian food experience in a quaint little setting at 216 8th St SE. The spring rolls were fresh and light, the pho and beef dishes were delicate and delicious.
