I've never had an issue at Chi-Am. I've ordered several items and have always liked my food. Is it the top of the charts? No, it's pretty average in taste, but it's never been bad either. The atmosphere of restaurant is pretty blah, usually dark and not always the cleanest. I certainly wouldn't bring someone there you are trying to... More

I had the Governor's Chicken (med) which came with pork fried rice, pork egg roll and egg drop soup. The soup and dinner were delivered promtly and everything was tasty and hot when it came to the table. The waitress was attentive and friendly.

The quality has really dropped since the place changed hands. The food is not as good, there have been claims about the issues of poor health practices in the kitchen, so in general, many people have stopped going there, including myself and several friends.

The food here is of excellent quality with fresh ingredients. The governor's chicken and the pork fried rice are my favorites. The atmosphere of the restaurant is sadly lacking. I get the feeling the kitchen is clean, but the restaurant used to be a gas station years ago, and it hasn't really moved up in dining quality since then. They... More

The food wasn't bad but when I had to go to the restroom I couldn't even eat anything else - we left immediately. It was caked on dirty with poop all over the bottom of the toilet. The only thing in the entire bathroom that was clean was the toilet seat. I figure if the bathroom is nasty then the... More
