    Chinese Homestyle Cooking

    Is there a better Chinese meal in Ames than the chicken in plum sauce and an order of spicy crab rangoons? I think not.

    I always enjoyed the mystery meat noodle bowls at May House.

    Everything is reasonably priced and the portions are great. The spicy rangoons are the best thing on the menu. I didn't know they had them till the owner told me, now I get an order every time I eat there.

    Wow. I didnt know they had such a thing. Crab Rangoon is from the gods, and I love spicy food.
    My roomie at the time worked at Golden Wok, so we went there a lot. Darn!

    Golden Wok sucks.
    A lot of the Chinese food in Ames isn't that great, so I'm open for suggestions.

    If you dont like the options in Ames, dont ever move to des moines. Id love to have something as good as Cocost\CHC near me here. This thread makes me want to go to ames for some CHC right now.

    Yes! And when we were really hungry, the buffet was always cool.

    I always liked Little Taipei too. On Welch. Im not sure if its even still there.

    I am from Des Moines, and their Chinese food blows Ames's out of the water. Go to Shang Yuen.

    Golden Wok's shrimp eggrolls are the best thing on their menu, everything else is just Americanese.
