Good Quality Chinese Food

I go here all the time. It's nice enough for the casual dinner out of the house and still affordable enough for the restaurant takeout to eat at home. Their food is good and their portion sizes are pretty big. They have a party room upstairs. Reservations are welcome although if you are a party of... read more

I recently dined at Cho-Sen Island and was very pleased with the friendly service and fresh food. The menu selection is not so big but well focused in quality. Reservations are recommended, especially for parties with 5+ people. The restaurant also does catering and takeout.

Mid-scale, you can feel comfortable going alone with a date, or with a family. If you like Chinese cuisine, they do a really good job with it. Try some of the batter-dipped fried items if you don't mind the fat and calories, because those are excellent. The sushi menu is more than passable as well.

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 dinner.

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
