Most big-group dinner spots in Anaheim are either dime-a-dozen steakhouse chains or weird hotel restaurants where Snow White shows up for a family photo right when you start eating. Ma’s Chinese Islamic is neither of those. Come to this family-run Halal restaurant in north Anaheim any day of the week and you’ll find large family gatherings, locals on lunch breaks, and every other person who passed by craving very good Chinese food. Ma’s menu is gigantic, with everything from kung pao chicken to dim sum, but we recommend focusing on the house specialty short ribs, any of the cold meats, and a massive plate of scallion bread.
