When you’re dining in Richardson, every bite is an immersion into another world. So we’re breaking down the top fan-favorite Chinese restaurants in Richardson. Get ready for anything but your regular-ole Chinese takeout.

Kicking things off with Jeng Chi. Since opening their doors in 1990, the family-owned restaurant has been #1 on the hearts of foodies across the area. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but the dumplings are a must-try.

Craving dim sum? Kirin Court is the place to be. Indulge in traditional dim sum as servers push carts through the dining room delivering tapas-sized dishes of dumplings, pastries, and rolls.

If it’s your first time to visit First Chinese Restaurant, we promise it won’t be the last. Transport yourself to the streets of Hong Kong with their Cantonese dishes like classic BBQ pork and Peking duck.

First Emperor Chinese is known for their generous portions, rich flavors, and inevitably craving a second serving. The Szechuan and Hunan dishes are top picks of regulars (and it’s no wonder why).

We’re chowing down on everything from Chop Suey and Chow Mein to fresh seafood dishes at Canton Chinese Restaurant. Don’t know what you’re craving? Royal Sichuan has options galore for tastes of all kinds. And for a lunch break that won’t break the bank, Oriental Express is our go-to.

Genroku is how we like to roll. The pan-asian restaurant is part sushi bar, part Chinese restaurant, part Taiwanese grill, and all delicious.

Don’t let the name fool you, because Little Kaiping is a big hit. The family restaurant is named after their hometown, but their Cantonese BBQ will have you coming back so much it’ll basically be your home away from home.

So whether you’re in the mood for a beloved classic or looking for your new all-time favorite, Richardson’s Chinese restaurants are turning up the heat and ready to cook up something just for you.
