“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We recently moved to Albuquerque and checked out the reviews for Chinese restaurants, which lead us to Chen's. We were not disappointed!
We got there sort of late...8:30pm, and they close at 9...but were warmly welcomed and given a table. We ordered appetizers, which were fabulous...the lady waiting on us showed us how to mix a sauce at the table for the pot stickers. Crab Rangoon was some of the best we've ever had.
We ordered orange chicken and chop suey and both dishes were wonderful...especially the chop suey.
We couldn't have asked for a nicer or more attentive waitress! Love this place!

“Great Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. It's the real deal! Great food; very reasonable prices; casual dinning. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Average Chinese Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Food was average tasting and not very good quality, even though the restaurant was almost empty when I ate here at about 6pm. Prices area a little high given the quality of food served. It's okay if you're in a pinch, but I would try other options if you have time to look around.

“Used to be regulars but not going back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We used to go to Chens about once a month but noticed the taste and quality was slipping. The sauces tasted the same or had no distinctive flavor. I had shrimp with lobster sauce and the sauce was just kind of a tasteless goo. My wife had the curry and it was really bad.

Sorry Chens - Saigon wins!
