Got there in time for lunch price but charged dinner price. The food was awful. Very little variety and was NOT hot. Will not go there again.

The inside was layed out a little strange. The choices you have is very minimal compared to other Chinese eateries in town. The price was more for less choices.

Very casual, seat yourself. There is a buffett all you can eat from salads to desserts. The cook even grilled me a steak for dinner. There is something for everyone. Our server Roy was very attentive. The restaurant and restrooms were clean.

Chen's is located in the Bay City Mall. Chinese buffet at it's best for the area. Always hot, always good service and reasonable prices. Have treated many people to dine there and never one complaint. Give it a try!

I am not a fan of Chinese food, however they do a good job with theirs. A lot of variety, and well seasoned. They are reasonable in their price. Restaurant is clean and they are prompt in their service.

The staff came to our service, took our drink order and welcomed us with smiles! This is a buffet style restaurant. All the food looked fresh, and nice and warm. The food we... More

We like this eatery for its affordable price, the grill that offers nicely marinated steak, the clean setting ( we actually witnessed them doing a pretty thorough job cleaning each of the chairs throughout the restaurant at the end of the evening when the traffic has slowed down), and most of all, the friendly crew that goes out of their...

Most times it's pretty good! It's a good price they don't over charge! You can bring your family and it won't break you! They have something for everyone! I don't really care for there dessert bar not much to pick from!
