Good "bad" Chinese delivery, Old Town/Lincoln Park

I come before you a broken woman in search of decent Cashew Chicken. My standards are not high - I'm looking for chicken, cashews, brown sauce, maybe broccoli, celery, water chestnuts...hopefully not zucchini or a white sauce. I've been living on the East Coast and am new to Chicago, but man, I don't know if my expectations are too high, or if Chicago's Chinese food is different from any other part of the US, or if I haven't found the right restaurant. Have tried Lee's Chop Suey, Dee's Mandarin, and Yummy Yummy. All were varying degrees of acceptable, but nothing quite hit the spot. Suggestions? Advice? Am I out of luck?
