“Excellent food, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I went in because it was organic. Does not use peanut oil. Food is very good, price moderate, meaning a bargin for good food in DC. Had lunch (2 of us) and dinner (7 of us). Typical chinese offerings - long menu. Everyone liked it. Will return next time I am at the Marriott.

“Chow Down at Chen's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Mr. Chen's Organic Chinese Restaurant is located in the lower level (basement) of a multi-story building (there is a Baskin Robbins above). The restaurant itself is small with approximately 30 tables. While we were there we noticed a busy take-out business (both walk-in pick-up and delivery) but we were the only 'eat-in' patrons. The menu includes the standard Chinese food items and, although the restaurant name states 'organic', there is a note on the menu that says that the organic vegetables are subject to availability. We had the hot & sour soup ($ 5.38 for the large bowl - slightly expensive for the size of the bowl, $ 2.68 for the small) which we found delicious and not overly salty. The entree Kung Pao Bean Curd ($ 9.98 large) was enough for two to split provided you are not too hungry. White rice can be replaced with brown or up-charged ($ 1.00) to fried rice. Most entrees were $ 9.98 or $ 10.88. No alcohol is served. There are lunch specials (M-F, 11 AM - 3 PM) for $ 6.98 - 8.98.

We would eat here again.

“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We got take-out and went back to our hotel room. The food was just so-so in our opinion. Not bad, but we wouldn't go back.

“Delivery”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I had delivery from Mr. Chens. Check your order before they leave. I ordered Spring Rolls, paid for them, but they were not included with my food.

Food is typically Chinese Carry Out. Nothing extraordinary. I probably was jaded since they forgot part of my order. I was staying at the Marriott Wardman and they did deliver to my room, which was a nice service.
