I gave such a low rate due to the attitude of the owner, she has to like you or your service will not be good. But if you can get past that they have the best BBQ Pork and Hot pepper Shrimp in the state. Prices a little high but worth a visit every once in a while.

I used to eat here at least 2-3 times per week in the early '90s because my job took me right past the place at lunch time and the price was right. Hadn't been back until this past December. The place has changed, to say the least. Thankfully, the food is still good - when you can convey what you... More

happened to see a friend's recommendation online, and decided to give it a try. In 24 years living here, I haven't found a Chinese restaurant I've liked. Pleasantly surprised with Chan's. The pepper-salt shrimp is spicy hot, crispy and delicious. We had chicken/broccoli, which was a good choice. Broccoli cooked perfectly. Extensive menu for a small place, somewhat busy on... More

This little hidden gem of a restaurant is in an otherwise nondescript location. We ordered the Chicken with Mixed Vegetables. Vegetables were crisp and not over cooked, fresh, and very tasty. Sauce was clean and light, flavorful and not salty. The chicken was tender. Service was very fast and staff very friendly. The restaurant is casual and clean. They also... More

Food is EXCELLENT (pepper-salted shrimp, mother's chicken, orange chicken, sizzling filet mignon are our favorites), food is hot and served super fast (we've timed them at having food on table within seven minutes of ordering), so we've learned not to order until all of our friends are there. Always welcomed with a smile and a "thank you" for my business.

I have gone here for years. I have always loved the Hot and sour soup and Schezwan chicken, always fresh and not drenched in oil. Best quality food wise. The problem is that the owner lady who is always there has gotten grumpy through the years and has no customer service left in her. The only other person who serves... More

Try their Salt/Pepper Shrimp or their Pot Stickers for a real treat! We eat lunch here as often as we can, for $5.95 you can choose one of a great selection of lunch options. The service is FAST and they are a bit New York City personality style, but we keep coming back!
