    I go by look, accent and rudeness (Which isn't actually rude, just not the fake western style friendliness) of the employees. Of course this doesn't always mean the food on the westernized menu is good, but they usually have a secret menu with the good stuff on it.

    Get over it. Not "Original Chinese", but "American Chinese". Not so much fake as not traditional. I've only eaten in one Chinese restaurant that would, at the customers request, serve "authentic" Chinese dishes. The _Mandarin_ also had a huge Chinese customer base.

    I would argue that if it were so good, there would be a demand for it although a lot of people tend to experience culture shock when I take them to Indian/Thai restaurants and would rather have something they are familiar with because curry is "weird"

    SUGGESTION! List auctual Chinese restarurants by region in the USA. You know where they are in NY..so start there and expand. Most people do not know where these places are hiding. I imagine most Chinese expats don't really want to give away their good places to eat. Time for them to come out of hiding.

    I hate Chinese buffets. I'm always dragged there by friends. It amazes me when I see stake, pasta with tomato sauce, pizza, corn dogs, and their crab ragoon doesn't have any fake crab in it just cream cheese.
    All your tips will definitely help me out to find real Chinese food.

      Maybe Chinese immigrants aren't too concerned with what's authentic or not, they just like tasty food. It's the North American born Asians that complain about food being non-authentic.

    My favorite local eateries are a Chinese restaurant and a Mexican restaurant that have been in the same locations and run by the same families for forty or more years, and a classic southern restaurant that has been run by the same family for more than ninety years.

    I agree with Lane, if they serve Tsingsao beer it usually is a good sign. As for "dishes" to watch out for, he basically listed all of my favorite dishes. Especially crab rangoon, seriously how could anyone not like crab and cheese in a fried pastry shell? ! Now I know what I want for lunch today.

    To know if your eating at an authentic Chinese restaurant, you must know how fast and uncaring the waiters are. The faster and more not giving a damn, the better the restaurant.

    The first forks were invented by the Egyptians. They were pitch forks used for cooking. The Chinese then invented a two prong fork, which was also used for cooking. The Roman Empire went on to invent the table fork, which was used for eating, though this may have been devised from an earlier Greek version.
