Diversity doesn’t reign supreme here, but who cares? New York’s best Chinese food can be found, in tremendous volume, in the somewhat distant Queens enclave.

Biang!, the first table service outpost from the famed Xi’an Famous Foods makes noodles the main attraction. Szechuan Gourmet takes a traditional style and simply does it to perfection. Yi Yan Halal explores the Muslim cuisine of Northern China to dizzying effect.
