Went in for lunch after passing this establishment several times. Upon entering I was thought it wasn't very promising. The way the place is set up is rather confusing and the waiter did not say anything to us. The food though. OH MY GOD. THE FOOD. Probably the best Chinese food I've ever had. The selections are small and the... More

Really enjoyed the lunch buffet. Fried dumplings, thai, and wonton soup especially good. Alot of predictable things, but very good. Wish there had been shrimp or crab legs, but otherwise well worth the money.

I find the buffet very good. What everyone misses is that they have a large menu . Made to order. Great dishes. So if your not into buffets try the menu. Everything very good.

I have been coming to Mrs. Chen's now for eight years. I was introduced to it by friends from Canada who purchased in Sarasota. For me Mrs. Chen's epitomizes the family restaurant experience. The staff are friendly, efficient and caring. The restaurant is clean and the food selection is sufficiently large enough to satisfy any palate. I love coming to... More

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

Back again this week 12/4/14 and still the best value in Sarasota for your out to eat pleasure. Don't be fooled by the low price you always get your monies worth at Mrs. Chen's. 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
