“Good and reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Jen Jen's is good and reliable Chinese in the Overland Park area. I see Trip Advisor has them listed as Shawnee Mission, so the city limits must run down the middle of Metcalf because Bo Ling's directly across the street is considered Overland Park. Fine, each city has a top notch Chinese restaurant.
Jen Jen's is smaller than Bo Ling's, and therefore quieter. We were introduced to both by a friend who immigrated from Taiwan. I'm particularly fond of the hot and sour soup; I order it whenever its on a Chinese menu because it is never the same soup in two places, and it always seems to be a good indicator of how great or lacking the food is going to be. All the entrees I've had have been excellent. They do a fair amount of take out orders, so folks in the neighborhood love them too.
Service is always fast and friendly. Next time we are in the area, we'll be back.
I just wish we could find comparably good Chinese in the St Louis suburbs.
