Best Chinese in Jackson!

I was introduced to Mr. Chen's a few weeks ago and have gotten take-out three times since. This is "hands down" the best Chinese food in the area! The crab rangoons are AMAZING and every other dish I have had has been tasty, fresh, and just fabulous!

Mr. Chen's in Three Haikus Steaming, fresh chicken heaped over bed of white rice I am completed. Fast, friendly wait staff Always smiling and checking on my tea status. Value beyond hope Ignore the fish market scent And you will be moved.

We ordered two dishes (eggplant with basil & minced pork in a hot pot and a steamed live fish) for the grown ups and enjoyed them. Our 7-year-old son ordered a pork chop noodle soup and almost finished the entire bowl by himself! Oh yes, I highly recommend their bubble tea as well. We will be back.

Once your waitress serves the food, you never see her again. Lunch specials are just okay; wonder if dinners are better. Part of an Asian market; some of the odors get a little too mixed up.

Had the shrimp with vegetables - very good! The shrimp were huge and just right, and the veggies were very good. I also loved the connected store - got some Pandan flavorings for cocktails!

If you are looking for the best Chinese food around look no further than Mr. Chens. This place has quickly become our go to spot for Chinese food. Located in the front of a Chinese grocery store all of their offerings are extremely fresh. From Duck, Sizzling Beef, Sweet Pea Leaves, to one of our favorite dishes Pineapple Shrimp a... More

took food out, so maybe I didn't get the full experience. But my vegetables were a over cooked and the flavors seem to be lacking.

Right up there in my top 2 for Chinese in the area. The restaurant is located in an Asian market. When you enter the restaurant is located to the left. If you go straight, grab a grocery cart because you will be in the market. Service was great, and food arrived quickly. I was not disappointed, and would recommend.

We make a point to stop here when traveling through Jackson. The store front is deceiving, but that is the case with a lot of great places. Do not expect Americanized food....you will be disappointed. You will get excellent food at an excellent price.
