Chen isn't the most authentic Chinese restaurant you can find here, in fact it's very Americanized Chinese. I have to admit out of all of the Chinese restaurants in Jackson, my family and I usually come here because it's convenient after we grocery shop. Their...More

The food here is as authentic than most restaurants. However, because it's located in a market, the smell is unusual. As a result I get my food to go. The customer service could be better. Definitely add this as an option for good Chinese food.

Much of my family has spent years in Asia, so we know it can be difficult to find good, authentic Chinese food. Mr. Chen's is probably one of the best Chinese restaurants in the southeast USA. I don't say that lightly, and I think that...More

Food was good. Had mango chicken and crab rangoon. Tasted really good but was pretty sweet. You have to walk thru the grocery store to get into the restaurant. But staff is friendly and food is freash and tasty.

If you can get past the smell of live/dead fish and the sketchy-ness of entering through an oriental market then you'll like Mr. Chen's. I was told that this was how authentic Chinese food was suppose to taste and I do believe it was truly...More

We have been going here since they opened. Great and authentic Chinese food. We have traveled to China multiple times and this is as close as we have found. You have to try the mini steamed buns.

Went here for lunch and it was a bit strange walking in because the restaurant is inside a traditional chinese grocery store. A little bit hesitant I went ahead and ordered lunch. The food was very reasonably priced and there portions were very ample. Co-workers...More
