This place is a great hidden gem! We are VERY picky about Chinese food, and normally only go with actual restaurants, not pickup only joints. However, this place was recommended to us, and we are so happy we gave it a try! Food is great, portions are very generous and very reasonable prices! Fast and friendly staff. We like the... More

We decided to try a different chinese carryout & wish we hadn't. Although it is inexpensive with huge portions we needed a magnifying glass to see the chicken. There are definitely other places in the area that are better.

Fabulous little hole in the wall with fantastic Chinese take out. Quick serivce, great food, with a clientele that is includes a significant Asian population. Don't go here for the ambiance as there is none, but for take-out there is not many places better. You can call in a order and pick it up 15 minutes later. They often have... More

Sorry for those who may think this is great food-keep searching if you are someone who knows what good food is suppose to taste like. The vegetables are fresh and if you like lots of onions as a filler this is for you. I'll pass. Take out. Can order on line for a ridiculous service charge.

A menu for Chen's Kitchen was left at our door (we live fairly close). We have driven by it many times, but never stopped. We were really missing out! We decided to read online reviews from several sites and they were very positive. We agree! The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. The portions are HUGE! The food is very... More

No need for cooking when there are several restaurants 1/2 mile away! On recommendation, I went to Chen's Kitchen for carry out. It made two meals, but I cannot say it was great, rather bland and not my idea of good Chinese. Perhaps I hit on an off day... would probably try them again.

My daughter told me about Chen's Kitchen and the donut shop next door. I certainly have enjoyed each meal we have carried-out. Food is fresh, well prepared, delicious.

That's how I felt when I discovered this place. Chen's is both affordable and tasty. I've had Happy Family and shrimp and veggies - very ample servings (actually I'm stuffed from the serving as I write this!), deliciously prepared and bordering on "cheap" it was such a bargain. You call ahead and pick up 15-20 min in. The almond cookies... More

So glad we found this place! The food is great. It's fresh, tasty and they have all our favorites. The hot and sour soup is excellent. We have eaten here a couple of times and will be returning again soon.

Seriously, this is the best Chinese in Johnson County. The prices are reasonable, the food is amazing, and the people are friendly. The only gripe I have is that as the cost of meat has gone up, the portions of meat in the dishes have dropped.
