I guess “Chinese food plate lunch” is too literal a translation?

It would be, because the lunch part of plate lunch already implies food.

Looks like it cannot be Chinese lunch plate.

A "plate lunch" is a term used primarily in Hawai'i to refer to food one would order at a cheap eats type of restaurant. So lunch plate is the wrong word order.
