Was it like being in Hong Kong? No, but Jen Jen delivered solid cuisine with reliability and excellent service. They do get a bit busy at times, and the venue is small and spartan. All in all, worth a stop if you're in the area.

When I say authentic I'm not saying Panda Express authentic. This place is the real deal when it comes to real Chinese food. The place is pretty old and kind of trashy. Not a pretty place. As soon as you walk in, there's a nasty...lobster tank by the door that the water for some reason is always dirty. They recently changed owners and the food has declined a little. But still really good. The food is served as a community plate. If you order an entre it comes out on a plate and they give you bowls for rice and you share. The price is very good. A family of 5 can all get really full for around $40. The food is prepared fresh to order and is always excellent. This is a family favorite for sure. Don't come here looking for Panda Express kind of food. It is real Chinese food.More

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.More
