So I have seen the myriad posts discussing the comparative strengths/weakness of O Mei and the (apparently) dozens of other spots out in suburbs. But what I am having a bit more trouble locating are the discussions of the best Chinese restaurants that are centrally located, which is an important consideration for those of us w/o access to cars. All the great Cantonese restaurants in the world don't mean a thing if I can't get to them on any kind of regular basis!
So I put it to you: are there specific restaurants of note in, for instance, the Spadina/Dundas Chinatown? Or the one on Gerrard? I know about Lai Wah Heen, but am curious what else is out there -- e.g., any great, not overly Westernized take out or delivery operations for a mid-week dinner? (Extra points if close to St Clair & Yonge...) I know these might not be as good as the ones out in the burbs, but presumably there must be better than moo goo gai pan and fried rice in the city proper!
