Cheelin saved us one night after we struck out trying to get into 3 restaurants that night. It had a menu small enough to not intimidate you but large enough to offer great variety. Alot of seafood and eggplant dishes which I liked (too bad my family doesn't). Portions were large and the food was very good. It wasn't spectacular (versus my past personal dining experience) but I would definitely return to sample more of the menu. We had Chicken Moo Shoo, the "Saturday noodles" and S&S chicken (which was thinly battered pieces of real chicken, not those hideous industrial balls).
My favourite part of the night was our waitress. She was very friendly but she made some assumptions about us that I found amusing and made me chuckle (she was NOT being offensive). Since we are an Chinese/WASP couple with two young kids and I don't speak any Chinese she offered advice that I felt she sincerely meant to be helpful. They offered us cutlery rather than chopsticks and were surprised we preferred the medium size rice serving (the small one would have only fed me alone). Hey I'm Asian. I love rice! She also explained how to eat the Moo Shoo (the use of the wraps and the sauce & filling). The wraps were very large compared to what most places offer but like all Chinese restaurants you have to pay for extra ones. These details are included because I think they are funny and added to my enjoyment of the meal. Some might have been offended but this was not at all the intention of this young lady.
