We had dinner there this week. Enjoyed chatting with the waitstaff they always greet us with a smile. My hubby enjoys the chicken teriyaki, green pepper steak & sliced grilled sirloin steak on the buffet and I always have my 2 bowls of egg drop soup. I absolutely love the flash fried cod. It's so good and they never run... More

I have been going to Mrs Chen's since 1995. Why have I never written a review of it. Maybe to keep people away so as it won't be so crowed? We now eat there once a week and love it. The owners are such special people. Most of the wait staff has been here for years. The restaurant sits about... More

Excellent...for a buffet so fresh never over cooked from sitting. Dinner has ribs shrimp crawdads and other higher end items. Just a few dollars more. Everything was very good. Pleasantly surprised.

Friendly staff, hot, well prepared sauces and spices. The best Hot and Sour soup I've had ever, and I've had a lot. Just tried their fried... More

Wow, what a jumble of reviews, some hate it and some love it. The couple we went with picked the place so we had no choice. The restaurant wasn't overly fancy but looked well cared for, neat and clean. Staff was very friendly. Really nice selection on the buffet and everything looked freshly done. Food was being replenished during the... More

The best Chinese/Asian food I've ever eaten. The preparation, taste & freshness was all that I hoped for. The portions are, of course, quite generous, and when you get carry-out, it serves easily for two meals. But, when you have a craving and it lives up to your expectations, that is a very satisfying experience. Hats-off to the shop lady... More
