Pleasant Neghborhood Chinese Restaurant

Chen's is a local, upscale Chinese dining experience. They have a competently prepared menu of typical dishes, served with a friendly flare. When I stay at the nearby Hyatt hotel, I frequently return to dine at Chen's.

Horrible food!!! The fried rice was cold with white rice chunks in it. It tasted like white rice with soy sauce poured on it...cold. Had general Tao chicken which was a chef specialty was cold and soggy with watery sauce. First and last time visiting here.

They have the rudest little Asian delivery man ever. He also rounds up on order cost. He gets very upset if you don't give him a tip because he is VERY RUDE. The food is pretty good/average in taste and affordable.

We ordered delivery from this restaurant, we had General Tso's Chicken and the Triple Delight. We tipped the container over to pour the chicken into a serving dish and it all came out in one huge clump! Not appetizing. The flavors weren't great compared to other places we've eaten. The Triple Delight was ok, it needed a lot of soy... More

It was the other restaurant across the parking lot from my hotel. Decent meal, not the best Chinese I've ever had but certainly good. The steamed pork dumplings were really tasty. The crispy beef with sesame entree was okay but nothing special. Very good, friendly service. I don't know if I'd go out of my way to eat here, but... More

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant in this area. It is a tastefully decorated space with tablecloths and cloth napkins but not very fussy. Your order comes quickly and everything is tasty with a wide variety of flavors. It is also right off of I295, exit 15 toward Chester, right at the first light making it easy off, easy on... More

Food is consistently good, and hot and service is fast whether eat-in or take out. The price is a little more but the quantity is more than enough.
