We visited the Indiana dunes for an overnight trip and ate dinner at Tao Chen's. The food was soooo good and plentiful. The next day we took the leftovers to the beach and ate them cold. It was still sooo good. When we were ready to return home, I decided to stop at Tao Chen and bring home 2 meals... More

Stopped in that restaurant on our travel for dinner and were not very impressed. Service was lax to say the least, our main course plates came at different times and were not as tasty as could be expected. We had selected a chicken Pad Thai and Mongolian beef (better tasting than the Pad Thai). We Will not return

Average quality food. Good service. There are so many better options in the area though, that it's hard to recommend.

Wow, what a dump. Table was FILTHY! Place was empty ... for a reason. Waitress was ignorant to customer needs. Food was terrible. Prices are way too high. I was sick for 2 days!

My husband's family lived in Hong Kong for decades. When my mother in law came to visit - we took her here - and she was delighted when they made her favorite dish which she thoroughly enjoyed. Always a wonderful dining experience - and the family meal deal is well worth the trip!

The large menu has something for everyone with good soups. While nothing else really stands out, this is good dependable food at fair prices.

My first visit was with a friend for lunch and I liked Tao Chen fine but wanted to try dinner with my husband. We were not disappointed on Saturday night. The decor is rather elegant for a Chinese restaurant. The back wall has a dozen black framed Chinese letters ranged in a line. There is a lovely scroll behind the... More
