The staff were friendly but the food, take out, was not very fresh or hot. I was disappointed because many people have said good things about this restaurant

Omg so good. I mean really good! Most dishes are fantastic but not everything on the menu is outstanding, stick with the traditional dishes. Fast delivery and fast service in the restaurant. Newer location is very nice, not that old style Chinese.

We love Chen. The food is always very good and fresh. We usually get delivery but have eaten at the restaurant several times. Prices are very far for the amount of food and quality. Delivery is always very fast and the delivery people are always very friendly.

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.

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.
