We ordered Sweet and Sour Shrimp and after we finished pulling apart all the breading, all we found were tiny pieces of what was supposed to be shrimp but I have my doubts. We filled up on the vegetables and rice. We haven't eaten at Chen's in a long time and we won't be going back again.

Looking for your old favorite standards of Pu Pu Platter, fried rice, lo mein, etc? This is the place to get it. I've gotten take out more than dine in. Take out has incredibly generous portions. I've gone in a few times where its been crowded, mostly with families having weekend lunch together.

Nothing fancy, but food is always good. Always find a local crowd, especially at the bar. Good take out and large portions.

We had been meaning to try this Chinese restaurant, which is in our town but for some reason, we kept overlooking. Everything about Chen's is retro 1960s - chop suey, pineapple chicken, harsh lighting, and lots of grease. My duck was overwhelmed by a cloying, sweet-oily sauce that stayed with me all night long. The other diners seemed to be... More

Service is courteous and genuine. Meal portions are huge and served hot. Limited bar, stick with the drink specials. Family friendly. Unless noted, they will allow substitutions unlike many Chinese restaurants. Typical American Chinese ambiance.

If you like overcooked and slimy veggies in your dish, this is the place to go. Had heard such good things, and ended up disappointed.

I have been patronizing Chens for years and years, but have not been in a while. I stopped in for a take out order of wonton soup and wings. Both were delicious and exactly as I remember from years ago when my family spent summers at Scarborough Beach. The portions are large and the quality spot on.

We tried this place for the first time last week. Be forewarned this place has zero ambiance at best. The bar is tiny with limited selection (no grey goose or crown royal for example). The food was good and the portions huge. I could not finish mine in two meals. We shall return.

Big portions of American style Chinese comort food that you cannot go wrong with. They start you off with crispy wanton noodles and duck sauce for free, in case they forget then remind them. The crab rangoon is the best I know of anywhere (!), as is the good old fashioned sweet and sour chicken. Fried rice is unique and... More

I found this quite by accident. Not very many folks were dining, but I was starved and craving Chinese food. The wonton soup was delicious as were the dry noodles, crispy and not greasy. The fried rice was excellent and the chicken chow mein in a white sauce (minus the soy sauce) was very tasty, made to order and fresh.... More
