We always eat here whenever in Jackson. The food is authentic American Chinese and the dishes are fairly priced. The service is always excellent. The place is clean. What else is there to say?

Browsing through the attached Grocery Store gave us an opportunity to transition into a great meal.This was a very pleasant visit and a reminder that we need to do this more often. My Wife and I decided to split an order... More

It's hard to find a decent Chinese restaurant in the area Mr. Chen's has stood the test of time. If you can stand the smell of the grocer it will be fine. The prices are inexpensive and its menu is that of a normal Chinese restaurant. Give a try, I don't think you can go too wrong

Service was okay, and maybe I don't know good Chinese... it was alright, not spectacular. Inexpensive, lunch with drink was 8.99 with tax. So there's that. Flavor was okay, if not a little bland. As for me, I think there are buffets that taste every bit as good or better.

Some of the best Chinese in town. Very fresh!! Small restaurant with ducks hanging around. My office has also used them for catering meetings and guests are always pleased

This is by far the best and most authentic Chinese restaurant in Jackson and surrounding area. We have lived in Jackson for almost 20 years and been hoping for a decent Chinese restaurant. The food is fresh, service is average but the quality is consistent. We don't cook with a lot of salt, so we have to request for less... More

I was craving stir fry while I was out running errands so I decided to stop in and grab some lunch. Immediately my attention was drawn to the Marketplace. Crates and crates of fresh produce. Japanese eggplants for 79 cents a pound. Baby bok Choy, Oyster mushrooms, shiitake, enokie, King Oyster Mushrooms, Cilantro, Bean sprouts, Bamboo Shoots, Many vegetables that... More

Don't let the exterior fool you, this place is legit. Walk inside and you'll see a Chinese market and next to it the restaurant. The waitstaff was super sweet and the food was great! Generous amounts of food too!

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!
