Small restaurant, big flavor

Small, family owned restaurant with four tables that's big on flavorful food. Ordered take out from here and everything was really good. General Tso's chicken, pork fried rice, beef with broccoli and the egg roll were all fresh and delicious (pics attached). Definitely recommend and will return.

Each time I ordered from them I placed an order for delivery. First off, the delivery was super fast and the food was always fresh!

We tried this place based on a friends tip. We are glad we did. Excellent white meat chicken and the vegetables were very fresh. This place is a nice little hidden gem. I think we will be back!

I had heard great things about this place. Ok first of all their online menu is awful. So we drove there and their paper menus were great. Waited 10-15 min which is not too bad on a weekend. So, pork fried rice was dry, the chicken in the cashew chicken was some of the toughest to date, the lo mein... More

We were looking for an eat-in Asian cuisine and had heard good things about Chef Li. I will say that the food was delicious. However, I wouldnt recommend it for Dining In. The food takes too long, and the atmosphere isnt the greatest. Looks better in the picture above than it really is (sorry.). Show up when they tell you... More

Restaurant is geared more toward take out, with ony 2 or 3 tables inside. I drive past 4 chineese take out places to order from chef Li. Prices and menu are simalar to every other chineese take out, but the quality and freshness is much better here. Pork egg foo yung is one of the best around.

We decided to change up our Take out and try Chef Li. My son said it was the best General Tso he has ever had! Very nice and clean place. The kitchen is not visible as in other restaurants.

Visit Chef Li several times, food is always great. My daughter loves the pot stickers and my wife and daughter always love the chicken with Black Bean Sauce
