Chinese in Calgary

Hey everyone, so I'm looking to try some Chinese in Calgary... Authentic, not westernized. Embarassingly I'm a total 'virgin' in this department, and even if I get a restaurant recommendation I'm kind of lost with the 'War-and-Peace' length menus. I've done some digging on this board, and found a few names that seem to be cropping up but I have no idea what to order there, and additionally many of the threads are going on 3 years old now, so a more current take on the situation would be nice.

I understand Delicious Country is a well liked option around here, but are there any stand out dishes there? What do I order as a first-timer?

Also, am I correct in thinking Harbor City and Forbidden City are the dim sum favorites? I have only ever tried the dim sum at the Calgary Farmer's Market, so I don't have much to go on.

Also, any places that are better than those I mentioned?

Thanks in Advance!
