I have only been for lunch, but the amount of the food, the quality of the food, and the price of the food make this my first choice when I am in the mood for Chinese food in Allen. The selection on the lunch menu is quite varied, and the food tastes fresh and delicious. They have the best egg... More

I have eaten in and had take out several times in the passed few month's since discovering Zen Chou in Allen. Temperature in building is a little warm for Texas, but it is clean and the people are super friendly. I have tried a few different items but my favorite is the Teriyaki Chicken bowl.

We usually do carry out but this time, my wife and I were the only ones eating; and we had 1 hour before an appointment - so we decided to eat there. She had the pan fried noodles and I had the Kung Pao Chicken. But we have had several other dishes on several different visits. We go there since... More

Ordered two different dinners, Kung Pao Chicken and Beef and Broccoli. Portions were plentiful. Food was very good, served fast and great flavor. Wait staff was very attentive. Would definitely go back.

Our family discovered this restaurant in the summer of 2014, and we decided right then and there that it was the best. No more hunting for great Asian food in Allen - this is it. We normally eat there. Music is nice, place - including restrooms - is clean. Wait staff usually slower than it should be but their delivery... More

This is just a small, unassuming Asian restaurant tucked away in a strip mall off Greenville Avenue. However, the food is generally quite good and the prices are very reasonable...plus the wait staff is extremely attentive.

This local Chinese food restaurant has high quality ingredients. Everything that we have tried here has been excellent! We really enjoy it so much that we eat here a couple of times a month. We believe it is the best Chinese food restaurant around in this area.
