I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. The ambience is light-filled and nicely decorated. Everything here is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Everyone has had the "typical" Chinese dishes, but they are elevated here to the divine. Everything is hot, nothing is greasy, including their light and airy, but generously-stuffed crab Rangoon, the eggrolls and... More

Everything is fresh and simple.. Owners take pride! I've been there so many times and I can not remember one thing I've complained about.. I love the whole menu and in my opinion has the best spicey Tina rolls in town if you like sushi.. Dine in or takeout Chen is Manchester's finest Chinese!

Tried this place as an option to North Garden and it will be my first and last time. Food was poor at best, had hot and sour soup, very bland and not much substance, sweet and sour pork which appeared to be microwaved with the sauce served on the side, and garlic noodles which turned out to be angel hair...

If you want good quality and quantity of food, this is a great place to go! Their Chinese dishes are the classics with some of their own specialties as well. Their Japanese includes very fresh fish and good portions. I've had sashimi, nigiri, and rolls and they do a great job with all of it. The staff hustle about and... More

My husband and I went here for lunch on a Thursday. We were promptly seated and given menus.....and waited and waited and waited for service. Another party arrived after us and were promptly seated and waited on while we sat and looked on. A server finally came over and took our drink order but not our food order. She left... More

This has become our absolute, number one, go-to restaurant for Chinese food. I do not think we’ve ever come here and not ordered a BBQ Sparerib appetizer. They are awesome! Meaty and tender, yet crispy outside. Soooo good! I am also partial to the Suen La Chow Show. I often choose this appetizer as my meal. The Szechuan wontons are... More

Waiter was attentive in a very busy time. We ordered the crab Rangoon and egg roll to start . Crab Rangoon were some of the best we have... More

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.
