Good Chinese Home Cooking

This is not a Chinese takeout place. It's a nice family sit down restaurant . Prices are a little above average- portions are not big enough for family sharing. Waiters are not warm and friendly. But the food is always fresh and not covered in that thick brown sauce like other places. When you... read more

I am a frequent customer (being that I live so close!) at China Chalet. The food is always fresh and they have a nice menu. It's not your typical take out, pictures of food on the wall kind of place and therefore you'll pay a bit more, but I've never had a bad meal there.

The source... My family owned a piece of Lung Fongs restaurant in New York so I think my qualifications are good. This is a very well decorated Chinese Restaurant with a broad array of choices which will satisfy every taste. ***Most importantly they do not use MSG***

Very good food. Upscale Chinese restaurant. Enjoyed the Lettuce Wraps many times here. Prawns with walnuts and vegetables is excellent.

This is one of the best Chinese meals that I have ever eaten. Most of the items on it's menu are suited to American tastes. I had beef in orange sauce. Unlike most Chinese restaurants the beef was very tender and the sauce was not overly spicy. The hot and sour soup was spicy. The service is excellent and the... More

We had an early dinner here today, but have come here many times in the past with the same results; Excellent Food, Fast & Friendly Service and a Very Large Menu to choose from. We shared the Beef Chow Fun and Chicken with Snow Peas which were both excellent, as usual. The meal also comes with a round vegetable cut... More

Went to China recently and the comparison was very close. Not just your basic Chinese restaurant. Very authentic, original taste, huge selection of choices. Cant say enough of how good the food was. Reasonable priced and the staff was very helpful as well. WILL go back again.

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!
