Best Takeout Chinese - 2000
Henry's China House
So the décor's not much to look at -- a couple of tables in a plain eatery stuck in a strip mall. But what do you care? You're here for the take-out, which is a good thing, because that's what this place specializes in. Choose your region: classic Cantonese, Mandarin, Szechuan. The woks here spew forth all manner and style of noodle dishes and stir-fry items, from chow fun to savory tofu. In addition the cooks are fast and the staff is efficient, so your order is finished, packed up, and ready to go within minutes of your call. Plus, Henry's caters to any diner, be it in-house or at-home. Special dietary requests? Not a problem. Vegetarian in your midst? Plenty of options. Allergic to MSG? Henry's doesn't use it. All in all, Henry's exceeds typical take-out expectations, because when you get home, your food is hot and savory rather than a soggy mess. And that's a point in your favor.
