    Cantonese food is a speciality at Sunderland's Chinese restaurants

    What kind of things can you expect when you sit down at Chinese restaurants in the Sunderland area? Well, for starters you'll find some of the finest Cantonese chefs around. This means munching on beautifully balanced stir fries with sauces that are bursting with flavour, but never too greasy or calorific. If you're hunting for exotic tastes without the calorie count, places like Paradise Garden are simply perfect. From scallop and squid stir fries to chow mein that doesn't need a hefty dose of chilli sauce to make it palatable, the chefs at these Chinese restaurants in Sunderland know their ingredients down to the very last spring onion.

    Get stuck in to Sichuan cuisine at Chinese restaurants in Sunderland

    However, Cantonese cuisine is far from the only taste of China Sunderland's chefs have to offer. You'll also find some stellar Sichuanese chefs at places like Hei Hei, who can cook up a completely different range of delights. If you're looking for a dose of spice to rival the area's curry houses, Sichuan's cuisine will be right up your street. Stick to chicken curries dotted with red chillies, go for something really offbeat from the Sichuan cookbook like deep-fried frog's legs, or sublime seafood dishes like steamed sea bass cooked with mustard greens.

    Check out Chinese restaurants in Sunderland's neighbours as well

    While central Sunderland has Chinese restaurants you'll adore, don't be limited to the city itself when seeking the finest Sichuan cuisine, or some Cantonese treasures. Tyneside is also a great place to head for an East Asian feast, with even more culinary styles on display. So don't discount places like King Neptune, with its Peking-style cooking and seafood-centred menu. Keep your dining options open with Quandoo instead.
