If you want good quality and quantity of food, this is a great place to go! Their Chinese dishes are the classics with some of their own specialties as well. Their Japanese includes very fresh fish and good portions. I've had sashimi, nigiri, and rolls and they do a great job with all of it. The staff hustle about and... More

Another party arrived after us and were promptly seated and waited on while we sat and looked on. A server finally came over and took our drink order but not our food order. She left... More

This has become our absolute, number one, go-to restaurant for Chinese food. I do not think we’ve ever come here and not ordered a BBQ Sparerib appetizer. They are awesome! Meaty and tender, yet crispy outside. Soooo good! I am also partial to the Suen La Chow Show. I often choose this appetizer as my meal. The Szechuan wontons are... More

My boyfriend and I live right near this place and get take out all the time. Really good chinese! We've yet to go in and sit yet but we want to! The place looks really nice. Parking lot is usually full so people must like it! I would recommend.

Though the food is a little pricey, it is consistently good. I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered from Chen's. I have eaten at numerous Asian restaurants over the years, and this is definitely a favorite.

We stopped in here on the recommendation of a local area family member, we weren't disappointed! We just beat the rush and were seated immediately. 15 minutes later there was a line out the door! The server was quick to take our order and to bring the food out, but didn't check back until we were almost done with our... More

The food is not as good as one might expect. It's a good place to meet & drink, but the food is rather bland, often with too much salt.
