“Probably the best chinese food in Birmingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Ate there last night... had the dumplings (which are always great), and then we had the orange chicken, and the shrimp with vegetables. Not very adventurous choices, there are much more exotic (to the American eye) entries on the menu. Much more authentic than typical Chinese restaurants in America. My husband loved his orange chicken, and although my dish was a tad bland, the shrimp was cooked perfectly, and the vegetables were very fresh.

“Great Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

When we discovered Mr. Chen's, we pretty much lost interest in eating at other Chinese restaurants. The dumplings are one of our favorite things to eat there. Delicious food and great service!

“Authentic Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

I love Mr. Chen's! The servers are all very good and helpful with making great choices. The food is Hot, Fresh, and Authentic, this is not a strip mall Chinese Buffett. The food is plentiful. Get there early because it is always full

“Excellent Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Been here several times with family and friends. Never disappointed. Great selection on menu and fair prices. If you enjoy Chinese food you must come and try.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

People, you haven't had Chinese cooking unless you have been here. For about the same price as a nicer buffet, you can have waiter service, and a huge selection of possibilities. While the menus don't have pictures, the outside area has a few dishes in plain view of the sidewalk. A must-visit! Better than Carnation Buffet in Bessemer :P
