“Great Chinese Food!!Delivered Fast, Hot, and Fresh!!Very Impressed!”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

We were visiting the Santa Barbara area and staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Carpenteria. We were tired after our long drive and just wanted to get some good food to go besides pizza. We chose Chens based on the great reviews here on TripAdvisor. We were very skeptical as we are Asian. We placed our order and were told it would take about 30 minutes for delivery. To our surprise, there was a knock at our room door about 15 mins later. These guys are good. We ordered Mugu Gai Pan and vegetable Egg Fu Young. Food was delicous and very generous servings. It was just what we needed! The delivery guy was very polite and provided us with plates and eating utencils. Our next visit to Carpenteria will most likely include a stop at Chen's!

“A Place We Go To Almost Once a Week”
Reviewed February 10, 2010

Brian the owner is friendly and always talkative. He has a smile when he greets you and too when you leave. Alot of the staff are his family and they all pride themselves in the food and the service. When offered pizza or Chinn's, my kids always choose Chinn's. We go here for our "comfort " food when we just need to talk and also for the great buffet! My friend in Az always wants me to pack some up & bring it to her when I go to vist. I'm affraid the wonderful smell would drive the other passangers crazy!
They deliver on time, with a smile...and no hidden fees.
Eat here and you WILL come back! Thank you Chinn's Lyn
