Full Kee Review

Many locals swear by this standout from the slew of mediocre Chinese joints in the area. The style-free interior can be off-putting to some—reminiscent of the fluorescent-lit dives of Manhattan's Chinatown—but the cuisine is better than anything within the city limits. Addictive shrimp or scallops in garlic sauce cry out for a carry-out to enjoy again later, as do the wide assortment of Cantonese-style roasted meats. Tried-and-true dishes include the dumplings, crispy duck, eggplant with garlic sauce, and garlicky sautéed leek flower.
