Doc Chey's isn't your typical boring mom-n-pop Chinese restaurant. No, no...Doc Chey's is MUCH better than that (and healthier too!). This is the place where I always bring out-of-town friends. Doc Chey's is pan-Asian, so they serve noodles, stirfries and dim sum inspired by mutliple Asian countries. The oversized noodle bowls are what they do best, but I've grown to adore the dim sum menu too (try the Shanghai dumplings!). Dim Sum is around $4 a plate, and entrees are $6-$8, which is a great deal for the portions and quality. They're starting to use more and more organic items too, which is amazing at these prices. This is the orgianal (and best) location, which opened 10 years ago. They're always winning ""Best of Atlanta"" awards year after year (best pan-asian, best chinese, best cheap eats, etc.), and they have quite the portfolio on their website to prove it. Try one of the green teas from the Tea Bar.
Pros: affordable, healthy, socially responsible, fun, award-winning
