Enjoyed Lunch

We were craving Asian food and saw this restaurant as we drove by. We really enjoyed our lunches - they came with a spring roll and fried rice and the portions were big enough to take home for another meal. The food was hot and prepared to order, and service was good. We will definitely be back.

Maybe I was expecting something better? What I like about a Chinese restaurant in addition to the food, of course, is the ethnic journey you take going there, the smell of fried egg rolls, the Chinese servers, the complimentary hot tea. Well this restaurant was missing it all, in addition to the food being so-so, I will not return.

We were disappointed in the egg foo young. The gravy was like brown american gravy. Very disappointing.

Chens serves up some good dishes. The service is usually good too. We have been there for their lunch specials and find the food freshly made and a good value. I like that the service staff pays attention to the youngster's needs. The facilities and restaurant is clean.

Skip the store front Chinese food and come here. It doesn't cost any more. In fact it probably cost less and it definitely tastes better. It is clean, tastes fresh, the atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly.

Our family eats Chinese food at least once a week. We moved to the area six months ago and have been searching for great Chinese food ever since. At last we've found it! Highly recommend Chen's. Fresh produce and made on demand sauces and entrees. Try the appetizer sampler. Yum!!!

I have been wanting to try this place. The building looks nice and the menu has a great selection. I ordered salad with ginger dressing. Not your typical dressing but good flavor, the lettuce and tomatoes tasted old and soggy. I could only eat a few bites. I anxiously awaited my entree, General Tao chicken with fried rice.

This is my favorite Chinese Restaurant in Crystal Lake. I love that they will give us half steamed and half fried pot stickers. They also offer brown rice as well as white rice. The food is always consistantly good. The plum wine is also very nice. Really like the new decor!
