Authentic Chinese cuisine in Calgary

Before I get into it, I'm not one really super-picky about Chinese food as it may seem; I love my potstickers and beef fried rice noodle too!

I'm speaking more in reference to places that Chinese people have the insider info on; having been in Edmonton for the last 3 years, it's become kind of something I hoped I could find here (I'm originally from Vancouver - love Golden Harbour in Kerrisdale!)

I've been to MBA BBQ and Noodle House in Chinatown, I've been super-impressed with the cleanliness and quality. The BBQ Pork is great, and the gai lan (chinese broccoli) is a generous portion and really tender. Probably my fave place right now, but it's nice to not always go to a place like that!

Calgary Court's decent too, I like HK-style cafes and that one is decent enough. Tried Happy Valley also, but not too impressed - pretty rough around the edges, and their bbq meats weren't as good as MBA's except for the BBQ Duck which was really good and superior to MBA's.

I'm interested in places like Gee Gong on Centre Street in Chinatown which claims "authentic Chinese cuisine" and Happy Hill; I've been to Sun Chiu Kee and Forbidden City which are both pretty decent.

Any other recommendations or hidden treasures? Any word on how Gee Gong is or other places? And most importantly, any decent semi-authentic delivery places in the SW? :) Much appreciated.
