Good for a fast lunch, good food, waiters hit and miss.

Most of us had lunch specials - soup and enter for $9. Someone had a scallop entree off the main menu that was $13 and I've never seen so many scallops. Ambience is okay, but one or two grumpy no-speak waiters could spoil your visit.

Okay the food is terrific. I do agree that the waitstaff is not warm and friendly. If any reader knows a Chinese restaurant with better food post it here so others can try it

I went to the China Chalet in Florham Park for lunch this past Saturday. I was turned off they did not have the fried noodles and duck sauce right on the table.

Ordered shrimp chow fun take-out. It was barely edible. Sticky, dry, tasteless, and expensive for a lunch special. The hot & sour soup was the worst I've had. Just dull. Co-workers had the same reaction to their meals. They are, however, very fast in the kitchen.

This venerable Chinese restaurant is an area favorite. The dining areas are attractive, the ambiance pleasant, and the menu has a broad range of choices. The daily lunch specials are reasonably priced, and many area residents enjoy the prompt take-out service. We have several friends who love Chinese food and they report that the take-out from this restaurant is among... More

I've been going to China Chalet for awhile. The food is good, but you really don't get enough, for the money your paying. The atmosphere is authentic. Also, their wonton soup is tasteless. This is my place to go, until something else comes to the area.

This place feels like the most authentic Chinese in the area. It is a large restaurant with plenty of seating and offers a large menu of delicious Chinese specialities. Nice spot for family celebrations and special occasions. We highly recommend this place- enjoy!

Went to China Chalet on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Had to wait a little even with a reservation, but it was well worth it. Service was good. But they balked at taking an AMEX card even though they advertise that they except it. All in all pretty good.

We are lucky enough to live close by to this gem - great menu, courteous and prompt service, and the food is consistently excellent, even when we get take out. We particularly like the cold spicy sesame noodles from the appetizer menu. Great for any group - we've been there for dates and with my toddler. Highly recommend.
