For one bay front stretch of South Brooklyn, China Max is the classic, dependable Chinese takeout place. The menu covers all the usual suspects: pan fried noodles are crispy and soggy in all the right places; copious amounts of both chicken and broccoli swim in a delicate garlic sauce; pepper steak is tender and robust; and scallion pancakes are light and greasy, with just the right proportion of green stuff. The somewhat surprising Japanese offerings also produce some hits, with maki rolls that burst at the seams. This eatery has space, too: With outdoor seating, booths, and large tables for groups—all served by a speedy waitstaff—locals and passersby often have their takeout to stay.
