“great selection of food,good prices and good wait staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

Came by this restaurant by reviews on trip advisor with my wife and 7 year old. It was a Thursday night and the place was empty except for one asian family , It was 6:30pm and it was during school recess(recess in LI,NY schools) so I let it slide that there was just one family . The menu was chock full of a multitude of dishes and we tried the Pao Pao platter for 2 and steamed dumplings. My wife and I shared a spicy beef dish and General Taos chicken (my wife loved it ,not overly sweet) with the house fried rice. All were very good .My 7 yr old had the only dessert they offered which was ice cream (strawberry and plenty of them). .I highly recommend this restaurant...very attentive wait staff...btw when we left 7 or 8 tables of patrons were taken

“Excellent food with below average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

The food here is probably among the best in NJ, but the service is sloppy. Not good for large groups, OK for a quick dinner or takeout. BYO.

“Best Chinese Food in Madison/Chatham/Florham Park Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

We frequent China Chalet for the excellent Chinese food. On any given night you will see Chinese families enjoying a dinner out together speaking with the wait staff. You can still order the Americanized food such as sweet and sour chicken, but try the other dishes because they are great!

“Excellent food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

You know if a Chinese restaurant in New Jersey is filled with Chinese customers, it must be good. China Chalet is that place. This is a rather large restaurant, with plenty of seating. I have seen very large parties in the side room. My wife does not generally enjoy Chinese food, because it is too salty. Not here. If you try the Chalet, don't miss their incredibly delicate homemade wanton soup. I haven't tried a dish there that was not excellent and portion size is admirable.

“Much better than the typical storefront Chinese restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

Stopped in the other night for a quick dinner; I left full and satisfied.

The restaurant is spacious and well-lit with attractive decor and an attentive wait staff. The steamed pork bun dumpling appetizer was moist without being mushy, yet bland, and could have benefited from more seasoning. The pork ribs in red wine sauce was indeed sweet and delicious, with the meat literally falling off the bone.

I will definitely make a return visit to see if the service and quality of the cuisine remains consistent.

Alert for those with allergies: the restaurant serves roasted peanuts in a small bowl as a complimentary appetizer.
