We recently ate at Chang Express, and were pleasantly surprised with the dinner. My husband had the Cashew Veggie dinner with chicken with fried rice. I had the Chow Mein with pork and fried rice. Both were very good. The young lady that took our order was very pleasant and accommodating. Our dinners each had a nice portion. I thought... More

Chang Express is a small, family operation. The staff is very friendly and took the time to talk is through some of the menu items. Chang offers the typical Chinese fare, as well as some Thai dishes. The portions are generous and the prices reasonable. The food itself was decent, and better than expected for being in a small town... More

We have been staying in the Elk Rapids marina for years but had never ventured into this restaurant, mostly because we couldn't see into it. They recently remodeled and we could see in so we ventured in for a pleasant surprise. The server was very friendly and efficient. We started with the Crab Ragoon. There were 6 and they were...

We got take out because the interior is not a place that I'd really like to spend any time. The food was good. We got a curry, which had just the right amount of heat. We also got Teriyaki chicken with broccoli, and that was good. The steamed dumplings were good. I would get take out from Chang Express again.... More

Been getting carry out from here for years every time we come up for the summer. Always been a good value and very good food. This summer the prices had gone way up, the portions had gone way down and the food was just painfully average. I hope it was just a fluke!

Food is wonderful for take out, great to take to the local beach for a relaxing and sumptuous dinner. or to take to your home or condo (or boat!). The atmosphere inside is awful, just a few older booths. But for take- out it's the best Asian food in the area (we've lived here for 20 years and have tried... More
