Never Disappointed

The food is plentiful and the price is right. You can substitute items on the menu for a substitution charge, but the portions are worth it. Parking is very limited so there will be probably be a need to park in the street. Great food and service! We will keep going back for takeout and dine -in!

We have had take out from Chen's and very much enjoyed it. Since we had a busy Christmas Eve and lots of home cooking, we thought we would go to the restaurant and enjoy eating there. It was very busy, but we got in rather quickly. The food was very good, but we had the worse service ever. After the... More

Never had a dish here that is not good! I am not a sushi-lover so I can't comment on that quality (but have been with other sushi connoisseurs who rave about it) but all dishes we have ever tried are hot, fresh, and just dang yummy! We typically sit at the bar and service is good. Also good at the... More

I went in yesterday and was serves beef fried rice that has been cooked in burnt oil. I sent it back top the kitchen..They basically reheated the same rice in more of the burnt oil. I didn't even eat it...it should have been taken off of the check. I will never eat here again..better off eating some where else. Seems... More

Manchester does not have a good Chinese restaurant. However, we have been to Chen's on 4 occasions and so far so good. The food has been fresh and tasty. The price is average but the portions are not large by any means. We will keep going here until Manchester opens something better.

Have been here a couple of times now, last trip was one of the best. I like greasy Chinese, Chens is a big step up with some of the best Chinese north of NYC. This would be a super place to take a business lunch or a great place to take a date. The food is excellent, I love the... More

This is a favorite of my coworkers and I. Lunch is cheap, tasty, and fast. I love the General Gao's chicken and their lo mien is unique and tasty. Would be better if there was more parking.

Well-prepared sushi--and we've been here many times. They do the standards well. They also do a good job with the house special sushi. Lettuce cup chicken is a great appetizer. The service is brusque but reasonably efficient. Atmosphere is not as good as the food. It's only a few steps up from the high-school cafeteria decor of yore. Bottom line:... More

Our table may have ordered half the menu. Everything was perfect, from the sushi to the calamari and moo goo gai pan. Sushi here is excellent. Seaweed salad too. Try the angry dragon or combo meal. The service was fun, and we enjoyed our waiter immensely.

We stopped by for lunch today. We were greeted right away and given a nice table by the window. The place was very clean and pretty busy for 2pm (a good sign in my mind). Hubby and I ordered the sushi and kiddo had chix fingers and miso.The food was very fresh and really tasty. We also had the crab... More
