Very Good Chinese Take-Out and healthfull, too

Only have had take out or delivery from Mr. Chen's, but the food is very tasty and plentiful. The eggplant with ginger and basil is a real winner as is the Singapore noodles. dumplings and egg rolls are a bit on the small size, with the egg rolls being over fried. Overall food is tasty and fresh.

No atmosphere but good food at a fair price. Small room with booths. Nice location on the neighborhood shopping strip. Efficient service

While staying at the nearby Omni Shoreham hotel, we ordered Egg Drop Soup, Chicken Fried Rice, Mongolian Beef, and General Tso's Chicken, and it was all fantastic. The whole family - especially the kids - loved it. They even loved the snow peas and are asking for us to get them again soon! A definite notch above your typical Chinese... More

My family and I visited this establishment during a recent conference at the Marriott down the street. Prices were ok for the area but def not NYC Chinese take out prices.

Mr. Chens advertises itself as organic but the menu qualifies that it is "organic dependent upon availability." We stopped by for lunch and were the only people in the small walk-down spot the entire time. The portions were small, no substitutions were allowed, (even the most simple, pasta for rice), and the quality was just so-so. I have had better... More

Not a fancy place but it has an excellent selection of menu options and includes a take-away service. The price just $50 for very large... More

The food wasn't the best Chinese I've ever had, but it was tasty, quick and the prices were good (the dinner special includes an entree, spring roll and soup for $11.99).

Ordered delivery to the Omni Shoreham Hotel, where I was staying. Loved the menu options (including my preferred brown rice); vegetarian spring rolls were very tasty; and my made-to-order spicy shrimp and vegetables meal was generous and definitely hit the spot. Particularly loved the fast delivery; I think it was no more than 15 minutes! Would definitely order there, again.

I was in DC with 4 kids with 4 different pallet preferences so I was on the scout for a place to get food for us all. We decided on this little place because of the billboard which was a copy of an article raving about this fantastic little secluded, well-priced, place. I'm not sure what made it "organic"? I...

I have been eating here for 15 years. It's nothing fancy at all, but for basic Chinese food for a reasonable price it's your best bet in upper NW.
