The food here is consistently FANTASTIC! Service is always dependable, friendly and fast. My favorite dish is the Sesame Chicken, but have not every hand anything I didn't like.

The decor is old. The food was bland. Quantities were plentiful. Two entrees was more than enough for four.

Probably have to go to Chinatown to find better. There are a lot of Chinese buffets but this one is really good. Run by the same people since it opened over twenty years ago. Great atmosphere and great service.

Love the atmosphere in this place and the food is excellent! The staff is very friendly. Reasonable prices. More food than what I could eat in one setting, I did have a doggie take out.

Always enjoy the food at House of Chen. They have a great menu and don't mind customizing any order just for you. Staff is always friends and smiling. Price is good and portions are ample. Great for lunch or dinner! Family, business or solo dining. They have room for all.

Have eaten at House of Chen since 1980. Always was my favorite. Then I started noticing food and service wasn't like it had been. Then I found out the Chens were no longer in charge or owners. Haven't been back. Yuck.

I've been here a few times for lunch during my business travel to Anniston. I always had one of the lunch specials. No complaints, the food was always tasty and the portion size was reasonable for a lunch.

on the way home from a doctor's appointment we stopped by hoping it was a buffet. It wasn't, and we were pleasantly surprised to be seated by, waited on, and fauned over by a really nice older Chinese man Who spoke broken English. The service and ambiance is good and the food ~ especially the enrolls and hot and sour... More

We decided to go here after many years because we moved about 30 miles away. We decided it was worth the drive! Their egg rolls are great and they have not changed since our last visit! So many choices but we all had something different and none of us were disappointed. Their portions are huge so we all walked away... More

OK-I'm spoiled because I am very picky when it comes to Chinese food! House of Chen is the only place I go when I am craving it. Yes, Anniston has several places to eat Chinese, but I just can't bring my self to change over. I have tried them and they just don't come close. The service is amazing! Great... More
