Best Chinese in Tokyo?

Dustin_E | Aug 24, 2010 11:35 AM

I'm planning a return trip to Tokyo, and would love to eat at a few of their 'best' chinese restaurants. Price isn't too much of a concern.

I am hoping to find restaurants that showcase interesting, unique and/or historically authentic aspects of chinese cuisine, rather than just serving very expensive "sashimi" courses with some chinese flavoring in a place with nice service/decor. The focus of this trip is sushi, ramen, and non-ramen chinese (in that order) so i'd like my chinese meals to not focus on on raw fish or traditional ramen.

I've really only had one tokyo chinese meal - a 6 course meal for 4000 Yen pp at the top of the Takashimaya in shinjuku. On my last trip I was really hoping to try Ryuan, but didn't get a chance to. I suspect i'd more likely find what i'm looking for at a small place like ryuan than larger places in hotels or shopping centers, but i'm not entirely sure.

If you have any sense of how these top places in tokyo compare to top places in hong kong / shanghai / beijing / taipei, that would be very helpful too.

Any input would be very much appreciated!! Thank You!
