    Many Charlotteans have been coming to Baoding for 20 years; and there's a reason for that level of loyalty. The excellent food, great atmosphere and fair prices have made Baoding a mainstay for a long time. The Moo Shu pork here is simply divine, and every single dish is above average. It's in a mall, but this isn't your typical mall dining experience. There's an upscale, relaxing environment, but the prices are right in line with any other Chinese restaurant.

    Recommended dishes: Spring roll, fried crab stuffed wonton, Szechuan shrimp

    4520 N Tryon St # 40, Charlotte, NC 28213-6933
    704-596-0228

    This is a classic case of "don't let the exterior fool you." Dragon Court is located in a mall that, to be honest, has seen better days. The parking lot is full of potholes and the surrounding can make you think twice. Then why is it on this list of the best in Charlotte? Give it a chance and you'll see. Very generous portions, excellent food and good service make this one of the city's top choices.

    Recommended dishes: Dim Sum cart on the weekends,

    In the building that formerly housed China Saute now sits this gem. One plus here is that the menu is actually fairly compact, so it's not intimidating. The service is impeccable and the staff friendly. The pho (Vietnamese soup) here often gets rave reviews, and there's a tremendous variety cuisines.

    Recommended dishes: moo shu pork, Pho sho
