The food at this restaurant is always very good as long as you actually eat at the restaurant. Take out food can often be very spotty not Recommended. We really enjoy the freshness of the food. Waiters do have to be careful to keep hands off tops of glasses that is a bit annoying.

As previous reviewers have noted, there is a significant lack of good Chinese food choices in the area. China Chalet is easily the best choice. I lived in NYC for 8 years so I'm somewhat spoiled when it comes to Chinese takeout. China Chalet would probably rank close to the middle or bottom compared to the places we used to order from in NYC. The standards are all here, Chicken w/ Broccoli was tender and broccoli fresh. Steamed veggie dumplings not mushy and quite tasty. Chicken w. garlic sauce a bit spicy but still very tender and good. I have only 2 issues with this place. First, they do not deliver! Huh? How is that even possible in the suburbs. They used to deliver but over the past year it appears that its takeout only. Next, the prices are on the high side. A side order of bok choy ran over $10 which was ridiculous. Basically 2 chicken entrees, veg fried rice and a side of bok choy will run you $50. That's NYC prices for sure. I would recommend China Chalet but maybe as a once a month "treat" because for $50, it can't be considered "every week" Chinese food.

I am a frequent customer of this restaurant. We always have a group of people share a variety of dishes. The Mar Po Tofu, Cripsy Prawns & Crispy Sea Bass are our favorites. They are authentic Chinese (not Americanized) dishes. The location is convenient.

This is a good place for real Chinese food, spicy food especially.

My favorite Chinese restaurant is NOT in New York, nor is it as far away as China. Luckily, it's right here on Columbia Turnpike in a strip mall in Florham Park, New Jersey--China Chalet. The service is friendly, the food is extraordinary, and the prices more than fair.

We tend to like items such as tripe and tongue in hot pepper sauce for starters, but everything is good or better.

Met a friend for lunch. Lunch special prices were low (9.95 ) but portions were really small. We ordered Beef and Stringbeans, still don,t know "Where's the beef?". Hot n Sour Soup was just ok. The broth in the Wonton Soup was weak. Service was ok, atmosphere needs an update. Big disappointment, was good a few years ago.
