Probably the Best Chinese in Jackson

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... read more

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.

It was amazing to find great authentic Chinese food in MS. We visited the store for grocery but the crispy duck was a heart throb. Never had I tasted such a succulent duck dish before. Must try.

I had lunch at Mr. Chen's today, April 29, 2015. The restaurant was located inside an oriental grocery store. The restaurant, unlike most Chinese restaurants, doesn't have a buffet, one orders off of the menu. The menu was very extensive, and the dishes are different from the typical Chinese place. The menu crosses the whole spectrum from beef, pork, chicken,... More

Wow! This is the real deal. Mr. Chen's is inside a real Chinese supermarket. The staff are real as is the menu. The only negative is the rustic atmosphere, but this would be true to a Chinatown! Try the exotic menu items. Definitely not your neighborhood take away!

I went based on wonderful reviews; however, was really turned off by the smell. The food was a little above average, but not good enough that I would go back. It might be ok as a takeout joint, but to visit a restaurant within an Asian market is a far stretch from anything that I would ever want to do... More

Mr. Chen's has an extensive menu, with some standard Americanized Chinese dishes, but plenty of authentic Chinese dishes as well. It's geared more toward northern Chinese tastes, but that's not a bad thing. Everything we've had has been good and fresh. And if you need Asian groceries – from noodles, frozen food, sauces, spices, vegetables – as well as seafood... More

When we learned that Mr. Chen's had opened a locations in Jackson, we found an excuse to travel there having enjoyed the Mr. Chen's in Little Rock. Being attached to a Chinese grocery means all of the ingredients at Mr. Chen's are fresh. We enjoyed the Mongolian chicken, the combination fried rice, cashew chicken and other well prepared dishes.

On the way home from our New Orleans visit, our destination for the day was Jackson, Mississippi, where we arrived about one in the afternoon. We each got a lunch special at Mr. Chen’s Authentic Chinese Cooking Emporium. (Actually I added the word “emporium” to the name of the place.) Currently the best rated Chinese restaurant in town, it is... More

I enjoy both the restaurant and the market. Fresh food, authentic and good. Fresh seafood choices in the market and good prices.
