Highest-rated Chinese restaurants in San Diego, according to Tripadvisor

Chinese food consistently ranks among favorite ethnic foods in the U.S. year after year (often neck and neck with Mexican food as the #1 favorite). That fact is evidenced by the ubiquitousness of Chinese restaurants all across the country; There are more than 40,000 across all 50 states.

Most Chinese food you find in the U.S. is really American-Chinese food, which is largely its own cuisine at this point because of how dishes have been adapted to suit tastes here. In fact, a lot of the most popular Chinese dishes were created in the U.S., including fortune cookies, General Tso’s chicken, and chop suey.

Stacker compiled a list of the highest rated Chinese restaurants in San Diego on Tripadvisor. Keep reading to see how many you’ve tried, and if your local favorite made the list.
