We love Chen Garden. We order or dine in this place at least once a month sometimes twice or thrice. The food is consistently good, it could get loud in the restaurant that's when we order in, huge selection for meat lovers and some nice options for vegetarians. We love the minced chicken with scallion pancakes, sweet corn soup, paper... More

The evening dinner atmosphere is better than most Chinese restaurants. It's darker, with comfortable seats and booths. Dishes are also large, so three will easily feed five people, thus making it attractive economically. However, the food is totally unimpressive, really almost like factory-made taste, so that was a huge disappointment. Our Pad Thai noodles with Shrimp was just a soggy... More

We love, loved, loved this restaurant! In a day and age where Chinese food is synonymous with take out, Chen Garden takes us back to a place and time when Chinese food was served tableside in a family style manner. Meals like this should be shared around a table with friends, family, and good conversation (not out of a take-out... More

We go often to Chen Garden. The service is always good and food tasty even if a tad greasy. The Lo Mein, Ginger Hunan Beef were tasty. The service is good and the family that runs it is very conscientious and helpful.

The entrance to this restaurant is through a door in a simple store front. There is no front window, just two pillars of ascending Chinese dragons. Once inside you encounter the hostess station and the bar. Facing away from the hostess the tables recede into the darkness. When we arrived, all the tables were full and the bar as well.... More

Without question, Chen Garden goes the extra mile in providing quality Chinese food and service in a relaxing atmosphere.The meals are plentiful and reasonably priced. The servers are always willing to accommodate any requests for adjustments (extra or fewer items within a dish). Remarkably, the restaurant may be packed, but they find room for you and provide constant attention -... More

Consistently great food. Very busy dining on weekends, even for takeout, so plan ahead! All of the food, to the best of my knowledge, is made without MSG.

We really liked this resturant Started with wonton /eggdrop soup very good Ordered pork chop piking, shrimp in lobster sauce, Sesame chicken and vegetables in its sauce. All the dishes were delicious. Good idea to make reservations in advance.

A friend introduced me to this wonderful Chinese restaurant a few days ago. We went for lunch. I was delighted to find out that the staff were familiar with the gluten free diet, and were able to steer me away from dishes they could not prepare GF. Much of the menu is clearly marked for GF, and there is plenty... More
