We were there early on a Sunday. No one else was there. Our food was excellent. Couldn't tell if it is always this quiet. It was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. We'll definitely be back.

When in doubt as to what we want to eat we head to Chan's . We love their food. They have great wontons in their wonton soup. I love the shrimp in lobster sauce. If you have had this dish in other chinese restaurants you won't recognize it here. It's actually more of a black bean sauce and it's delicious!... More

I had okay meals there, but I wouldn't recommend it to friends. The owner makes dinner rolls to go with the meals. They're not bad, but not your usual Chinese dinner side.

Best Chinese food ever! Every time! And no - we are not related. I believe everyone who goes into Chan's is considered family though.

I have never in my life had Chinese food this bad! I should've went to McDonalds I would have saved $30 and gotten more flavor. The egg drop soup was flavorless, The crab rangoons tasted like processed American cheese was in the middle. I ordered Mongolian beef and literally I had slices of meat in canned gravy like canned dog... More

We love this place! The food is great, and Bob is a genuinely nice guy. We like getting carry out, so are very satisfied with eating this food. In eight years, we have never eaten at another Chinese place. Thanks Bob!

Chan's has been serving consistently tasty Chinese fare for a long time! The decor is almost comically old school but so what! Most of the biz is take out! Great value and Bob the owner is always cheerful!

When I want real Chinese food, I go here. There are other places in the area, but Chan's in Spring Lake is authentic and tastes wonderful. Friendly service - smiley and efficient. Our children have grown up eating here and it's a family tradition.

Bob has owned Chan's in Spring Lake since the early 1980's. Not a single aspect of the decor has changed since then. In a word, dated. People that love Chan's like that about going there. Nothing appears to change. Based on my experience, most of Chan's business is take-out. All the dishes I've ordered are a bit different than anywhere... More
