Family friendly kosher chinese restaurant

We have visited many times over many years and it's consistently good food, good service and friendly faces and wait staff. It's available for small private parties too and they go out of their way to be as accommodating as possible. It's good for a quiet business lunch or a family get together... read more

It is always a pleasurable dining experience. we are always warmly greeted and promptly seated. the service staff is attentive, the food is consistently delicious and well presented. I highly recommend best restaurants for delicious take out, a romantic evening, or a small event.

The tone is set when you enter and are personally greeted. I'm amazed at how many people the managers know by name, and how much of family relationships they remember. It's common to be asked about a missing spouse. The food, all Asian and kosher, is quite good. Whether you want beef, chicken, fish, or vegetarian, and whether you want... More

Chosen Island is a five towns staple, very good kosher chinese food (sit-down), served in huge portions. They have been around for many years, right now I think the oldest continuously operating Kosher restaurant in the five towns, which is saying a lot (the Orthodox can be a finicky crowd). My wife and I typically order an appetizer and a... More

Chosen is the ONLY place I order steak. They age their steaks, and it is always done to perfection. Everything in Chosen is always delicious, fresh, service is excellent, and once you are there a few times, they know your name, and treat you like family. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of food, excellent décor and top service.... More

There is a reason why Cho Sen is always busy: great food, good portions, and a reasonable price. I'm not a gourmet. So all I know is that the food is delicious. There is a fixed price dinner of $25 which includes soup, choice of egg roll, etc., main course, and sorbet for desert. Great, and way too much to... More

For a family get-together, everyone ordered a prix fixe dinner at $24.95 each, and it was a very good value: soup, an appetizer, an entree, and dessert. With the weather bad and many people away for vacation, the restaurant was still nearly full, which says something about its popularity.

It has been a few years since we ate at Chosen for lunch. Lunch is a great time, its quiet, uncrowded, and you have weekday budget 'lunch specials' with the same service and ambiance that you would have at dinner. The lunch specials run about $14 & include soup & dessert. there is a nice choice of about a dozen... More

Overall good food. On the expensive side as are most Kosher Chinese restaurants. Usually crowded so go during off-peak hours, if possible to get a table quickly.
