“Best Chinese in Jackson - and a grocery store, too”

Mr. Chen's Authentic Chinese Cooking
Ranked #23 of 388 Restaurants in Jackson
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Mr. Chen's has an extensive menu, with some standard Americanized Chinese dishes, but plenty of authentic Chinese dishes as well. It's geared more toward northern Chinese tastes, but that's not a bad thing. Everything we've had has been good and fresh.

And if you need Asian groceries – from noodles, frozen food, sauces, spices, vegetables – as well as seafood and meat, this is the place.

Nothing to fancy to look at, but it gets the job done consistently.

When we learned that Mr. Chen's had opened a locations in Jackson, we found an excuse to travel there having enjoyed the Mr. Chen's in Little Rock. Being attached to a Chinese grocery means all of the ingredients at Mr. Chen's are fresh. We enjoyed the Mongolian chicken, the combination fried rice, cashew chicken and other well prepared dishes. The soups were served hot and were delicious. The servers were authentic and it took a couple of tries to have them understand our order, but they were friendly and helpful. Just finding a Chinese restaurant that is not a buffet is a treat these days. Mr. Chen's serves great food in a sensible, but not opulent, location.

On the way home from our New Orleans visit, our destination for the day was Jackson, Mississippi, where we arrived about one in the afternoon. We each got a lunch special at Mr. Chen’s Authentic Chinese Cooking Emporium. (Actually I added the word “emporium” to the name of the place.) Currently the best rated Chinese restaurant in town, it is actually in the corner of a Chinese grocery store. Shortly after entering the grocery store, you take a left to find the restaurant seating area.

Very good food - we were pleased with Joan’s orange chicken and my pepper beef. I had asked them to add some spice to my dish and they did a decent job of handling that request.

And very reasonable: Twenty-one bucks including tax and gratuity.

I enjoy both the restaurant and the market. Fresh food, authentic and good. Fresh seafood choices in the market and good prices.
