    Its tricky here in Australia there are plenty of good Chinese places but they all word the dishes the same way E.g. Chicken and Cashew, Pork and Black Bean and it doesn't leave much to the imagination but I guess they've just worded dishes this way because having the name in Chinese would maybe be too confusing or hard to pronounce. I've eaten my share from a few places that have been from terrible to very good even if I'm not all together sure are authentic. I'm lucky to have found one near where I live that have gold plate awards and every weekend is jam packed with Chinese and other asians for the Dim Sum, so there's a sure sign it must be authentic.

    Authenticity is just a term.
    Every cuisine has developed according to the availability of ingredients in a particular geographical region. So basically authenticity in this regard is difficult... In most cases dishes that need fresh ingredients wont be as good or unavailable. So don't go for authenticity of any particular cuisine but rather go and try out what you like and compare if you ever have the opportunity to visit the country that cuisine belongs to.

    Please don't be offended. I don't care if it's authentic. The only Chinese restaurant we have for 100 miles is a buffet. I'm still going to eat there, and I still like the food. Thank you for the information. In the area where i live we really don't have much of a choice.

    most OBVIOUS signs it's not a real chinese restaraunt

    starting with what SHOULD be in a chinese restaraunt but isn't there

    -no chopsticks
    -no chinese people whatsoever
    -no tea is served
    -no chinese/bilangual menus

    as for what SHOULDN'T be in a chinese restaraunt

    -metal chopsticks (these are usually korean chopsticks)
    -"おてもと" or "いらっしゃいませ" written on disposable chopsticks, these are japanese disposable chopsticks
    -wayyyy too many side dishes (this is usually a trait in korean cuisine)
    -non-chinese food (this one should be obvious)
    -stray dogs (no stray dog would DARE go near a chinese restaraunt.)

    A large city with a lot of Chinese who have immigrated into during the past 30 years or so is a good bet...like Vancouver, Canada and its suburbs. The Westernized "Chinese" food dishes were invented by early Chinese immigrants who had to use the ingredients available. Back in the 1950s, a popular musical called "Flower Drum Song" had a song called "Chop Suey" -- the characters from China who arrived in San Francisco called it an American dish.

    Actually there's a study that claims room temperature, neither hot or cold drinks, exit the body faster. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1433604/
    "Warm and cold drinks appeared to empty from the stomach more slowly than the control drink. The initial rate of gastric emptying of the cold drink was significantly slower than the control drink (p less than 0.05) and the difference in emptying rates between cold and control drinks were significantly correlated with the differences in intragastric temperatures (p less than 0.01). The difference in the initial emptying rates between warm and control drinks were not statistically significant."

    Of course now there's some fashionable new scare going around, claiming that hot drinks cause cancer.

    As long it taste almost like Asian food then I'm good not unless someone knows a place where illegal immigrant from the legit country making their legit food then tell me. Seriously, I'm not making fun or anything because there's this Chinese buffet, the workers were illegal people but they're dishes were good until they got caught. Now the buffet is over run with workers who aren't as good as the legit people. It's just a buffet but the greatness of the buffet went downhill without those wonderful people.

    My first job was working in the back of a chinese restaurant run by three generations of a cantonese family (the grandparents didn't do much, understandably). I always worked on buffet night, and none of the family members ever ate from the buffet. They always had their dinner afterwards, and you could certainly tell what they ate was authentic 'cause sometimes it was stuff like chicken feet or duck.
    I've always been curious as to why they never put real chinese food on the menu, 'cause although I think I'd refrain from eating chicken feet, there's so many amazing dishes out there and yet they're serving up chop suey.

    I actually found an authentic Chinese buffet outside Toronto. While it was almost entirely dim sum, it was all very good and not covered in any mystery sweet sauce. In fact, the sauces were probably the most varied assortment of condiments I'd seen anywhere, Asian restaurant or otherwise. The dishes were switched out around every 30 minutes at dinner time and served on the buffet line out of bamboo steamers. It was awesome and fun and delicious.

    I live in a town of about 33 thousand and there are literally no authentic Chinese restaurants. I've actually heard shefs at SUSHI restaurants speaking mandarin and Cantonese, but literally none of the Chinese restaurants are authentic, all have Americanized food. All have all of the warning signs. I wish I could experience the real stuff sometimes, even when I lived in a big city which is literally a melting pot they were hard to find. I just deal with the Americanized Chinese around here because my parents and others like it, and it does taste good sometimes. Literally when I eat with other people I know around here they don't know or just don't want to try using chopsticks either. I seriously prefer chopsticks and authentic Chinese over anything else.
