Went based on tripadvisor's reviews. We had 5 nights in South Bend, and ended up coming here twice it was so good. Mongolian Beef and Chicken Ginger a must! Highly recommended!

We stopped with our kids on the way home from vacation & so glad we heeded the positive reviews! The owner, Jean, sat down with us to ask about food allergies & preferences, as well as to make some recommendations. The food was some of the best Chinese we've had (including NY Chinatown). Service was great all around. Wish we lived closer!

The owner of the restaurant comes and sits with you and discusses your likes and dislikes before you order. She also tells you all about the food. She helps you to choose what you'd like to eat if you are unsure. She was even so kind as to send a complimentary treat on the house. The food was great. We had three different dishes, plus soups and eggrolls and all were top notch...best Chinese food I've ever had.

Looked forward to our meal at JW Chens when visiting South Bend. It was an okay meal. Not as good as in 2012 when we ate there. It had been 10/10 - now would rate as 7-8/10

Jean is the most hospitable restauranteur that I have encountered in quite a while. When you walk in, she joins you at the table and engages in friendly conversation before she takes your order. She even takes interest in what asian specialties are your favorites and tries to offer you suggestions on how to expand your asian palate. She will even send a complimentary plate of beef or vegetables on the house. The food is very good here and the prices are relatively cheap. Portions are great. I love this place. Whenever, I am in South Bend, I will make my way back to this yummy place!.
