“Good value and best Chinese in area”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This small restaurant is always packed and this has become one of our traditional eating places during our annual trip to nearby Beaver Creek. We went back last week and Henry's remains a great choice. The food is a bit "Americanized" (or should that be "Coloradoized"?) but has enough chops to appeal to most people who enjoy Chinese food. Equally important, Henry remains an affordable dining option among many overpriced restaurants in the area. Our favorite dishes here include the hot and sour soup, fried dumplings, General Tso chicken, and Henry's special eggplant.

For those out of towners, note that the restaurant is located in a large (byte cute) strip mall so you may need to drive around the mall a little bit to find it. The restaurant is located on a corner street sort of in the middle of the mall. Also, Henry's does not accept reservations, so plan accordingly. They seem to do a brisk take out business so that is another option.

“My new favorite place for lunch and take-out”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is now the best chinese restaurant in Avon/Edwards by far. Lunch menu is an amazing amount of food for a reasonable price. Quality is always very high and service is always top-notch. My favorite is the spicy basil chicken and I love their hot and sour soup. Good job!

“An easy place for lunch.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Chinese food can be ubiquitous, but Henry's is different. The food tastes fresh and well prepared. Service was friendly and quick. Lunch ran about $7. Try the Green Curry and Pad Tai.

“underwhelmed”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Why can't they get brown rice? Is that so hard? And mushrooms? What Chinese place doesn't use mushrooms? It's average at best-very saucy and they never can make it spicy even though I always ask for it that way. All tastes the same.

“Best Chineese Food in the Vail Valley”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Now we are talking! Great for lunch or dinner. Solid take out. A nice, clean, store front restaurant without the tacky Chineese lanterns. You won't be served Chineese tea and a kumquat dessert, but the food is fresh and consistently good. Try the Mango Tango, and the spicey basil chicken. The dumplings are a great starter. This is Vail's Chinatown.
