Ah, where to begin. First of all, they put a bowl of peanuts on your table when you first sit down, so be forewarned if you or someone in your party has peanut allergies. Then there's the spring rolls which are so greasy I couldn't get past the first bite. Even my son, who LOVES spring rolls, couldn't get them... More

I have eaten several times at the China Chalet. The food has always been fresh and vibrant. While the Szechuan specialties are perhaps best, the more ordinary Chinese food such as pork dumplings is well executed but if your game, stick with the Szechuan or the unusual at least. If you are adventurous, Ox Tongue & Tripe in Peanut Vinaigrette,... More

The food was awesome. Service was good, and the atmosphere was excellent. You can't go wrong here! Probably some of the best Chinese food in Morris and Sussex county. Some of the dishes are pretty spicy but they can make it mild if you request. Highly recommended!

I have been to China Chalet a few times over the last several years as we have family in the area. Every time the service has been decent (at least attentive even if "abrupt" while smiling) and the food fantastic. I don't understand the complaints of other reviewers. The place is well known so prices have been creeping up but... More

I came with a couple of friends and their children to celebrate the Chinese new year. It has almost been a year since I ate at this restaurant and my previous review was not favorable. And this place disappointed me again. My friends were equally diappointed. In the end, it was a very expensive meal with little value. I can... More

Fast service, fresh ingredients, BYO and huge portions. UK folks are used to different Chinese style however not to say this wasn't good. Great for larger dinners.

Carried out a Fish Fillet with Napa Cabbage/$18.95, and it had no more than three small broken pieces of fish, and the rest was cabbage and spices. It ruined my dinner.

I usually read the reviews before trying out new restaurants. China Chalet is rated very highly, so we decided to try it. We ordered Three Greens and Chef's Special Chicken with Mixed Vegetable. Both were somewhat bland and we needed sauces to spice up our food. We requested and got a side bowl of garlic sauce (which was nice of... More

I bought a take-out of the “Whole Tilapia in Spicy Black Bean Sauce” on my way home. After I got home and opened the box, I realized that it was not tilapia! It was much smaller than an average tilapia and tasted bad! I called the restaurant and was told that they substituted tilapias for other types of fish. “Would... More

We got take-out from here... everything was very good. This is a very typical Chinese restaurant serving all the classics.
