If money is no object or you have a nice expense account, Hunan or Hakkasan, locally silk road and for tick the boxes Chinese I would go for Tasty House (great sweet and sour chicken balls) or Hong Kong.

Not exactly on our doorstep but not too far, Sanxia Renjia in Deptford is good.

The dishes come in quite large so probably works better in groups of 3 or 4 to share and try a few, as opposed to solo or couples.

Also +1 for Steamers on Rye Lane, their lunch boxes are great value.

Yep. It's an unassuming pick up only place just down from Kings Hospital but Tasty House is very decent for classic western Chinese dishes. It's always quite busy and hospital workers and many passing cabbies swear by it. Crispy noodles are decent there. And it's called Tasty House - right up there with "Jade Garden" on the classic takeaway names list. What's not to like?

Depends if you're looking for standard UK chinese takeaway options, or the real thing! I'll go with the latter..

Fu House on Dartmouth Road in Forest Hill is worth checking out. Aside from the bog-standard takeaway options, the 'traditional dishes' section of the menu has a decent selection of Szechuan dishes.

Silk Road is pretty good for food from Xinxiang, but has gone downhill a bit. Never been that impressed by the quality Wuli Wuli unfortuantely, despite having a handful of authentic-sounding Szechuan options. Apart from that you're looking at going into town where there are loads of great options.

Not in my experience. Have been going for years and it's still as good as ever.

Not quite local but I do like going to the dragons castle up at E&C

They also do some traditional (non western) dishes if you want a slightly more authentic eating experience

Downside is due to its size, it does feel a bit busy at times and impersonal

I know what you mean, but often local restaurants in Hong Kong tend to be absolutely massive, so in that regard, Dragon Castle and Hong Kong City seem to have a fairly "authentic" sort of vibe.. if that's any consolation.
