Chinese New Year falls on February 19 this year; celebrations and feasts traditionally last for two weeks (at least in China), making February the perfect month to sample your way through the city's best noodle houses, wok kitchens and dim sum eateries. Although two of our favorites, Chef Liu's Authentic Chinese Cuisine and East Asia Garden, closed in 2014, Denver still has plenty of great options for crisp-skinned duck, tender dumplings and tongue-buzzing Szechuan specialties.
Keep reading for the ten best Chinese restaurants in the Denver metro area, in alphabetical order. And since Chef Liu's, last year's best Chinese restaurant in Westword's Best of Denver 2014, is no longer with us, the category is wide open for a new winner. Cast your vote for your favorite in our 2015 Readers' Poll.
