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

If you enjoy Chinese food, Japanese or sushi, this place is a must to dine. The wait staff/owners are always welcoming their customers upon entry into the restaurant, and they are attentive and very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoy the crab rangoon, which is made generously and with plenty of cream cheese filling and flavorings. The lo mein is made with... More

Hubby and I had Valentine's dinner here. I ordered the garlic chicken and green beans. Very good and served hot. Hubby got the garlic shrimp. The shrimp were plentiful and cooked perfectly. We ordered a side of pork fried rice, not the best we've had, but good. The fried dumplings are huge, and delicious. I love those darn things! Hubby... More
