I can honestly say that this was the best Chinese food I have ever had in the United States. I have visited China multiple times on business and the food here is just as good as that I ate in China. We were in Rochester visiting friends who are Chinese and they took us here. I am so very glad!!... More

Met family here for a Sunday dinner. Everyone was happy with their meals. I love their extra spicy chicken dishes and was not disappointed. Service was efficient even on a very crowded evening. As we left, there was a waiting line nearly out to the door.

I actually came here because the restaurant I chose first, was closed for repairs! Chen Garden looks really small from the outside. It is located in a small strip mall on Monroe Avenue. But once you get inside, it is really nice! They have a full bar where you can sit, and then there is a nice sit-down restaurant farther... More

Good service and food quality. The selections were so numerous with options for tofu, chicken, pork, beef, veggie and seafood. Brown, white and fried rice available as well. Full bar, comfortable seating arrangements as well. Well managed restaurant with trained staff, ready to serve. I will go back.

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
