Nice local place - friendly owners. Good service - huge portions, enough for a second meal the next day for sure! Love their steamed vegetables, No msg.

Wonderful food in a very pedestrian setting.
Went to this place after seeing an online review, and it was the best Chinese food I've had in Kansas City. Wonton Soup was super hot and loaded with 4 big wontons, all delish. The veggies in my seafood dish were fresh and cooked just right, the shrimp was tasty and plentiful, and the seasoning was very much to my liking ... no "twang" to it, just rich and flavorful. Quantities were ample, and the price was low.

About the room ... well, it's kind of on a Waffle House level, but cleaner. A few diner table and chairs, with a game show on the TV up in the corner. Let's just say, food this good deserves a better setting. But, hey! The price is right! (yes, that was the game show that was on!)

I'll be back. This is a "new favorite".

While this personal favorite is a nicer version of a hole in the wall, complete with sparce oriental cliche decore and surfaces intended for easy cleaning above ambiance, the exacting quality and warm family atmosphere make this far and away the best restaurant serving chinese cuisine in Johnson County.

Though I'm not one to stray to far from my preferred dishes once I have them in a particular establishment, and a trip to Chen's without getting their signature "Singapore Noodles" is near to unthinkable, I've brought enough people with me to enjoy the food here that I've had at least a sample of most of what can be found on the menu, and still haven't had anything that was not excellent. Even chinese stand-bys that I've come to disdain after years of abuse by other restaurants seem to have a new life breathed into them by the wonderful owner and chefs of Chen's Kitchen.

Whether just passing through or trying to discover something in your own neighborhood, don't pass this one by.
