Huge portions! Great service!

I've eaten at Chen's both times I visited Long Beach. The prices were reasonable. A combination plate, which includes soup, and egg roll, and crab rangoon, is under $11. You can get less expensive entrees without the combo. The waiter was good about keeping our water glasses full and empty plates... read more

I love Chen's for their delivery and delicious Hot & Sour Soup. I reviewed this place before but unfortunately, I can no longer recommend it. The physical restaurant location is just too dirty and the carpet is in serious need of cleaning. To top it off, they were recently cited and closed for cockroaches! If they clean this place up...

This was my first visit to Chen's. We were in the mood for delicious Asian flavors. We were not familiar with the menu, so we decided to go with the family dinners which include appetizers and entrees. The appetizers were ok: two ribs, two spring rolls, flattened deep-fried shrimp all on a plate. Our first entrée, shrimp with lobster sauce... More

I liked the family dinners. They give you a large serving. They also have the best wonton soup I've ever tasted.

OMGosh. What a lunch. My husband told me about this place, and I don't know why we didn't go sooner. We went for lunch, got there a little after 11, and the place was getting busy already. I ordered the one entree lunch for 6.25 and ended up with a nice cup of hot and sour soup (it could have... More

I have being eating at Chens since 1998. The only time I stopped going there was when, 7 years ago, the restaurant had some issues with Public Health Regulations. Still, after a couple of months, I came back. There is not any other Chinese Restaurant like Chens. The food is great, nice portions, fast service and the ambiance is the... More

I've been eating at Chen's for years, and each time, I'm blown away at the quality of the food, and the incredibly low prices they charge. This is great quality, classic Cantonese food, served in huge portions, in a classic Chinese restaurant atmosphere, with quick, no nonsense service. The lunch combos, available during the week, are especially satisfying. EAT HERE!

" Convenience is everything " ... but see now how close can seem to be so far away. With my living and business stationed in the same parking lot, HQ Broadway finds ways to deliver fast and furiously more tasty morsels and much better Egg Fu Young elsewhere. Always forgot the chopsticks and give you a fork ! Some of... More

We live in the Tacoma area but have a place in Ocean Park, Wa. where we spend at least a third of our time. We eat at Chen's every week when we are there. The vegetarian chow mien or fried rice are excellent & you always have leftovers.

The best Chinese take-out I've found in Long Beach. A little greasy, typical California American Chinese. The veggie sizzling soup is good and comes with crispy little rice-like add ins. Cream cheese wontons and garlic veggies are good as well.
