Plenty to eat

We ate at Chen's Garden for Sunday lunch. The restaurant staff was friendly and efficient and the portions were generous. The Cashew Chicken was very tasty, but the Mongolian Beef was not to our liking. We will visit again when we are in the area.

Good Chinese food. They have expanded their menu to include some Japanese food including Sushi. I have never tried the Sushi as I'm not a fan. The Chinese is excellent. Generous portions and served piping hot.

What a wonderful place for Chinese food! Not only is it great, but there is usually so much, I get to bring some home for a second meal.

This is a great place to eat Chinese food in our small town. You always get more than you can eat, so you can take home the extra.

Lunches are spectacular for the price, quality and amount of food you get. They have remodeled after the first of the year (2014) and it is much more attractive. The food has also gotten better and we have been frequenting this nice clean place more often lately than we ever did before. We do takeout and eat in...lunch or dinner.... More

Have carried out twice and it was very good. Pork fried rice was great. Shrimp with lobster sauce was excellent. Seemed like fresh shrimp. Comparable to the our regular chinese in Madison WI and maybe better in some areas. Nice clean well run place. Wish they delivered before 8pm.

I love coming to Chen's Garden. The menu holds a wide variety of choices! From Sushi to Thai Food there is something for everyone. The service is always great and the wait staff aims to please. Our crab ragoons were out within five minutes of ordering. Our food came very shortly after. This is some of the best sushi I've... More
