Got some take out chicken fried rice and an egg roll and the rice was plentiful, hot, and filled with lots and lot of chicken. The egg roll was only OK, so will skip that next visit. Staff was friendly and efficient. Would go back!

Mr. Chen's is a wonderful place to order Chinese the way we used to in Jackson...back in the House of Wong and Golden Dragon days, the pre-buffet days. My favorites are the Eggplant with Pork and the Curry Chicken. Both are outstanding and memorable. And, the curry chicken is cooked with beans sprouts to add an extra crunch. I give... More

First off, this is not a buffet, it is a sit down and order. The cashew chicken was the best I've ever had. It was 100% fresh as they have a fresh market right next door, and the zucchini was cooked to perfection. We ordered the Chinese beer, Tsingtao, and it really hit the spot. I've never enjoyed myself more... More

Mr. Chen's is the real deal with a grocery store to boot. We have been to China several times and eaten in numerous Chinese restaurants in NYC and Philly through the years. Some of the chicken dishes are deep fried chicken, make sure you ask if you want just stir fried chicken. Lots of great dishes. Order a dish per... More

Not your typical Chinese buffet place. Mr. Chens is a sit down and order restaurant with legit Asian dishes. You always see tons on Asians here to eat and if that doesn't tell you anything I don't know what will. The food is delicious, and if you have kids that get squirmy like mine, you can take them out into... More

We ordered two dishes (eggplant with basil & minced pork in a hot pot and a steamed live fish) for the grown ups and enjoyed them. Our 7-year-old son ordered a pork chop noodle soup and almost finished the entire bowl by himself! Oh yes, I highly recommend their bubble tea as well. We will be back.

Once your waitress serves the food, you never see her again. Lunch specials are just okay; wonder if dinners are better. Part of an Asian market; some of the odors get a little too mixed up.

I was introduced to Mr. Chen's a few weeks ago and have gotten take-out three times since. This is "hands down" the best Chinese food in the area! The crab rangoons are AMAZING and every other dish I have had has been tasty, fresh, and just fabulous!

Had the shrimp with vegetables - very good! The shrimp were huge and just right, and the veggies were very good. I also loved the connected store - got some Pandan flavorings for cocktails!
