This place is clearly one of the most pleasant place in the region. Anytime I come there I am so pleased. They maintain their very high level service and the topmost level of meals they serve. You definitely will enjoy this this restaurant. Warmly recommended.

What's the joke! This place. They don't have any eat in service only to go. They don't even include the soup and or salad in to go meals which they force you to take. Lost my business.

Service was quick for the place being empty. Staff was friendly and efficient. Food was fresh and delicious. Chicken was very tender and flavorful. A little out of the way though.

So happy to go there on a Monday at 6pm and seeing it EMPTY! I prefer not to be around people, but I should've read the signs differently... thanks Chens for giving all of us food poisoning! Thanks for not cleaning the floors or windows or doors. Really, keep it empty so I can continue to get first class service from the owner/cook smoking a cigarette out front upon arrival! Pretty good noodles though, so two stars...

I am from the east cost and when I moved here 3 years ago I could find any good Chinese food. Until I found Chen's there food is amazing!!!! I drive 46 miles round trip for this food that is how good it is!!! Service is great & fast and I've never had an order that wasn't right and you cannot beat the prices or the portion sizes they are HUGE!!!!! I would love to see a location in Mesa

Ordered the sweet & sour pork and it was bad, no taste, bland , just uneatable . Not a lot of chicken in the almond chicken, but that tasted pretty good. Egg rolls were the best thing we got.

Clean environment with friendly staff.We had a group of 8 which they accommodated well with a large round table.Food was good nothing amazing but all dishes we tried were good.They must filter their water as it was pretty good and thirst quenching which is a rare find in the Phoenix area.

It's just really poor. I've ordered here about 4 times now.. i thought I'd give it a go as I'm really into Asian cuisine. Each of the 4 times I've ordered the same meal which was packed differently, charged different prices and also had complete different flavours, my beef in black bean was bland, very oily and had zero taste of black bean sauce.. second time was very tasty and awesome and the last 2 times were a complete disaster. The customer service was far from pleasant, the restaurant is in a serious need for a renovation and the food is below average. I had mixed feelings about this place and I have serious doubts. I don't recommend this place to anyone, I stupidly wont be going again anytime soon, for anyone wanting some good Chinese I get it! But don't go here.Customer service: 2/10Food: 2/10

Great food! We like getting take out. Dining in is ok, service is ok but not amazing when dining in. Overall we really like the ribs appetizer, chow mein and many of their main dishes are great too. Never disappointed with the food.

BEST chinese food in south Chandler. Their combo fried rice is delicious. So much meat in it, not little pieces, but full shrimp and big slices of beef and chicken. Never had a bad meal here.

Food is great, nice people.. only problem is they say 20 minutes for pick up and they mean 30 minutes. But when you come late they call you and call you.

We ordered take out. We ordered the family dinner for 14.95 a piece. We also ordered 2 sides of barbecue pork. Worst dinner ever. We hardly ate anything. For 70.00 we threw down the holeNever again

Great food. The lady at the desk during lunch is extremely nice and remembers me every time I go there. I usually go during lunch and the lady gives me free soup sometimes.

Review №27

Always great food and plenty of it.Their coconut shrimp is delicious must say. I always order their ribs as their delious as well.For something different we tried their “orange beef” was good and different than the normal.I say go to their reflexology spa right next to frys gas station than go have lunch or dinner.

Review №28

If you like salt this is your place. Not sure why they make the food with so much sodium that it drowns out the taste. It's an insult to customers to do that. We have taste buds.The Sichuan chicken looked good but it was not spicy but boy did they throw a salt shaker in the liquid brown sauce of unknown origin. What a waste of food. And they added a ton of onions. People don't actually like to eat thick chunks of onions, it's just a filler ingredient.The dumplings tasted and felt microwaved. They were soft and chewy. They were also very salty. The pot stickers were supposed to be filled with vegetables and chicken but there were no vegetables and the “chicken” tasted like pork. The dumpling sauce was good.I was expecting the fried rice to be amazing based on the reviews but it was lackluster. It had no flavor, had extremely large slices of chicken and I didn't taste any egg. Lots of bean sprouts, peas and carrots. The rice was mushy. Another disappointing pick.The hot and sour soup was the only good thing we had though it wasn't very spicy the way hot and sour is supposed to be. It's called hot for a reason. They did provide a large portion so kudos for that.The mu shoo chicken itself was okay but not great. The pancakes were too thick and had an odd taste— they were not thin and light the way they should be. The worst part was the plum sauce. It should be sweet but nope, it was salty because everything here is salty apparently. How they can mess up plum sauce is beyond me.They get two stars because they were nice, provided hot mustard on request and the soup was good.To summarize: the food was not worth the drive and the cook uses way too much salt for the food to be edible. Thumbs down from me.

Okay...I eat a LOT of places.Today I had what may be the best orange chicken I have ever had in my life from the Chen's bistro lunch special menu.Great prices on all the lunch specials, everything comes with an eggroll, a Rangoon, a little salad, and a cup of soup.Their carry-out prices are very good as well.Highly recommended.

Don't waste you time or effort going here. I walked in with my family and wasn't even greeted I was pointed at and told to sit where I wanted. Then waited 10 minutes for someone to bring us menus. An older couple walked in and was immediately seated given a menu brought drinks and order taken in less than five minutes. All the time while the waitress was looking at me and my family. I wasn't an elderly family like the rest of their two couples that was there but damn what horrible service and horrible people. If I could shut this place down I would. Btw I have been a chef for 22 years and never have I seen such blatant disregard of a customer.

Good value, good flavors, although I think it would be better if they held back a little on the salt

Review №45

Just ordered General's Chicken & Orange Chicken with fried rice, extra soy sauce & spicy mustard for $24 delivery + tip . We got very poor quality of both (delivered in 15min) vs the quoted 25min. No fried rice, 2 fortune cookies, 2 single packs of soy sauce & no house spicy mustard (as promised). If you want outstandingly better Chinese food (comparatively speaking)... 2 words "Panda Express" and half the cost. What a total waste of time & $$$.

The sizzling rice soup is the best in the area. IMO.

Review №48

Clean large open dining room. Great helpful staff. Lots of affordable options. Chen's is a throwback family restaurant. Family style servings and great sides. You get crunchy strips and sweet and sour at your table. So everyone will find something they like. The hot and sour soup is the best I have had in years. The Egg rolls are cabbage based, with a thicker outside. The Crab puffs are addicting. They have the traditional options as well as some house options. The Honey chicken is to die for. The chicken is tender inside, crunchy outside, with honey drizzle. I suggest the brown rice with this dish. Pairs Great with teriyaki chicken or Genral Tao chicken. Great for couples dining or having a bigger gathering. They have large tables available if you need to host a large group. I suggest the lunch specials til 1pm. or family deal until close. The bathrooms are super clean. And it's easy to find on Riggs and McQueen. Same building as Dunkin Donuts and the Gym. Parking can be tricky during busy gym hours, but if you don't mind walking a bit, there is a lot of parking in the middle of business park. A side note, you will have leftovers and the food reheats very well, which makes this the perfect dinner out on a budget place.

Great food and very friendly, quick service. Our order was carried out, so I can't speak about the waiting staff. We had egg rolls, fried shrimp, Orange Chicken and Honey Sesame Chicken. This is ranks with the best of each of those dishes we've had.
