The food is always very good. The wait staff are polite and friendly and Tammy the bar tender is a doll.

My boyfriend and I live right near this place and get take out all the time. Really good chinese! We've yet to go in and sit yet but we want to! The place looks really nice. Parking lot is usually full so people must like it! I would recommend.

Though the food is a little pricey, it is consistently good. I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered from Chen's. I have eaten at numerous Asian restaurants over the years, and this is definitely a favorite.

We stopped in here on the recommendation of a local area family member, we weren't disappointed! We just beat the rush and were seated immediately. 15 minutes later there was a line out the door! The server was quick to take our order and to bring the food out, but didn't check back until we were almost done with our... More

The food is not as good as one might expect. It's a good place to meet & drink, but the food is rather bland, often with too much salt.

We ended up here by accident as the restaurant we were planning on was closed for renovations. This restaurant is on the smaller side but not crowded in any way but it had a cozy intimate feeling. I think it was the dark walls and ceiling. We ordered the Mango Shrimp and Pork Lo Mein. We both loved the shrimp... More

Terrible service. I sat at the bar, and it took almost 5 minutes before anyone came over to take my drink order. It was a Tuesday afternoon, and there wasn't anyone else seated at the bar while I was there. I ordered a Mai Tai, and it turned out the drink was a pre-made mix (watched while the person took...

Had the chance to do lunch here the other day. It was the first time in my lkife I have had freshly made chinese food. I Ordered the General Gao lunch special and my friend the lettuce wraps. No complaints at all. The General Gao was light and citrus not the usual cloying sticky sweet. We had a side of... More
