It depends - if you make it at home, you control the ingredients & can make it very healthy! So start cooking - make it with less oil, use organic low sodium soy sauce & lots of fresh organic veggies!

Great authentic read on Chinese food and restaurants in America by someone that knows what they're talking about, there is a book out by Jennifer 8. <--Yes, that is her name on the cover - Jennifer 8. It has to do with luck.
1) - Always ask at the restaurant if they MSG or as it is also called ACCENT. Order what they don't use it in. This is the stuff that makes your face swell up and gives you intense headaches.
2) - Stick with the veggie dishes and offerings that have light sauces and a minimum of frying.
One day after the lunch hour I stopped at the old David Kwan's in Phoenix, AZ. The help was being fed. They had a huge pan of vegetables with little or no sauce and they really dove into it.
They weren't eating all that Americanized mess that we get to look at on the buffet. It was a whole different dish they were eating and they ate it with gusto.

I just looked up the title of the Jennifer 8 book -- It's the Fortune Cookie Chronicles. Very eye opening written by a woman who grew up on Chinese food and is now a journalist.

Love Chinese food. I would consider most dishes with steamed meats and vegetables healthy.

I had Chinese for lunch yesterday. Jade has a great combo plate -- huge helping of sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour chicken, fried rice and an egg roll. $4.99. I should have taken a pic of the plate. It was so heaping and delicious. I brought home enough for two more lunches or dinners!
Next time I'm going to do a veggie plate. I know they fry in peanut oil but when you kook at what I ate, it was all fried.
So next time I will say, veggie plate, light on the sauces, put those on the side. No frying.

Whether it is healthy or not depends on how it is cooked and which ingredients are used. Some Chinese food is just bad for you, but oh so tasty. Other food is tasty and good for the body. Everything in moderation!

Very tasty Encore. Lol! Next time I think I'll get a steamed veggie plate and bring it home to eat as lettuce wraps.
