Miami New Times' Description

With its sterile glassed-in views of Biscayne Bay on one side and the kitchen on the other -- and nary a hint of Chinese tchotchkes anywhere -- the setting of this upscale old-timer (opened in 1991) seems more suited to slick rubber chicken fundraising dinners than to ethnic eats. But Chan's is one of Miami's best sources for hard-to-find authentic specialties: real Peking duck (served in two courses: crêpe-wrapped crisp skin and stir-fried meat with veggies); richly flavored Three-cup braised chicken; dynasty squirrel-like fish (Jiangsu-style crisp-skinned fish with spicy sweet-sour sauce, praised by one Qing Dynasty emperor as "the number one dish in the world"); and traditional clay pots, particularly garlicky, ultratender lamb. More inventive are the succulently seasoned yu pan quail with bamboo shoots, served in elegant lettuce cups, and honey walnut shrimp, a giant prawn stuffed with sweet walnuts and sliced like a sushi roll. There's also real sushi, plus standard Chinese choices like General Tso's chicken, but the specialties are the way to go.

    Owner treats his guests and employees terribly which sad to witness. Took our money elsewhere after waiting 2 hours for our food.
