A menu for Chen's Kitchen was left at our door (we live fairly close). We have driven by it many times, but never stopped. We were really missing out! We decided to read online reviews from several sites and they were very positive. We agree! The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. The... read more

Sorry for those who may think this is great food-keep searching if you are someone who knows what good food is suppose to taste like. The vegetables are fresh and if you like lots of onions as a filler this is for you. I'll pass. Take out. Can order on line for a ridiculous service charge.

No need for cooking when there are several restaurants 1/2 mile away! On recommendation, I went to Chen's Kitchen for carry out. It made two meals, but I cannot say it was great, rather bland and not my idea of good Chinese. Perhaps I hit on an off day... would probably try them again.

My daughter told me about Chen's Kitchen and the donut shop next door. I certainly have enjoyed each meal we have carried-out. Food is fresh, well prepared, delicious.

That's how I felt when I discovered this place. Chen's is both affordable and tasty. I've had Happy Family and shrimp and veggies - very ample servings (actually I'm stuffed from the serving as I write this!), deliciously prepared and bordering on "cheap" it was such a bargain. You call ahead and pick up 15-20 min in. The almond cookies... More

So glad we found this place! The food is great. It's fresh, tasty and they have all our favorites. The hot and sour soup is excellent. We have eaten here a couple of times and will be returning again soon.

Seriously, this is the best Chinese in Johnson County. The prices are reasonable, the food is amazing, and the people are friendly. The only gripe I have is that as the cost of meat has gone up, the portions of meat in the dishes have dropped.

Not willing to pay $40+ for two entrees at Bo Ling's? This may be the answer. Chen's doesn't deliver and you won't want to eat in the cafteria-esque strip mall location, but if you want good carry-out Chinese food they have what you are looking for. You can feed a family of 5 for $40. Closed on TUESDAYS (random) but... More

this is the best food this side of China- it has a small dining area area but they are very good at carry-out as well. Family favorite- good food, good food, lovely family owners who meet and greet you.

I am almost afraid to write this review, as I want to keep this hidden gem to myself. Chen's is nothing fancy to look at, and as you walk in to order or pick up your call ahead - it's leaves little to imagine, as you peer right into the kitchen. Let's face it, sometimes its about the food quality... More
