Princeton to New Brunswick Corridor (Rt 1, Rt 27, Rt 130)

I've recently moved to this area from NYC and I am seeking some good restaurant recommendations. I am aware of a few decent places (see below), but I am in need of some recommendations for:

Cantonese Roast Meat
Dim Sum
Korean other than Woojeon
Sushi (good by global standards, not local - I've been to several ok local places, but none that compare to the better mid-range NYC sushi places)
Authentic Thai (poor, one-dimensional Thai seems to be common in this area)
Doner Kebab
French (Bistro, brasserie, and high-end recos all appreciated)
Mid to high-end Modern American
Mid to high-end authentic Mexican (not interested in Tex-Mex or Cal-Mex)
Authentic S. American (would especially like to find Peruvian & Brazilian places)

Some places that I think are pretty good:

Hong Fu in Highland park for great Xiao Long Bao and decent other chinese food
Szechuan Ace on 27 (it isn't in the same league as Grand Szechuan International or Spicy and Tasty, but at least one can get some ma la food)
Super Star East buffet in nassau park (off 1) for chinese buffet
Woojeon on 1 for Korean
El Oaxaqueno 2 in New Brunswick for authentic cheap Mexican food (tacos, tortas, etc.).
Due Mare in New Brunswick for Italian
Pho99 on Rt 27 for Vietnamese
Desi Food Galaxy on Rt 27 for a variety of cheap indian
Dosa Grill on 27 for S. Indian veg buffet
Hoysala off Easton Ave for S. Indian non veg buffet
Khan Baba on 27 for grilled Halal (Indian? Pakistani?) meats
Blue Point Grill in Princeton for Oysters
Makeda for ok Ethiopean

Any advice is much appreciated.
