I am a regular. I have eaten most everything on the menu. The consistency is their strong point. The food is always fresh and hot. They are happy to tweak a dish for you. Service is fast and pleasant. My daughter and I have tried many, many other Chinese places and no matter how fancy or expensive we always end... More

Allen's is our "go to" restaurant for take out Chinese food. Highly recommend the crab dumplings, Orange chicken, sweet & sour chicken, and scallops with vegetables. This is the ONLY place we will order Chinese food. So good!

This was my first visit to Allen's, although we have ordered delivery several times prior to this. This is not your average take-out place! We were promptly seated and brought a delicious marinated cucumber salad without asking for it. Our food was hot, tasty, and spiced just how we ordered it. The server was polite and helpful in making our... More

My husband and I go there often, The food is always good, service is great (We always ask for Mindy, she's terrific, kind, friendly and attentive), but all the servers are wonderful. The owners are always there, very hands on with their business. It's a great local place and we like supporting our local businesses.

Yes I know its hard to believe - but we can get excellent Chinese food in Powhatan. Veggie spring rolls are awesome - also recommend the lettuce wraps and chicken with broccoli. Limited delivery area. Don't hesitate....give them a try!
