I had to make a trip to the Oriental grocery store in Jackson to buy some ingredients for a meal. Since I was in the area during the lunch hour I decided to have lunch at Mr. Chen's. I love Asian food and I'd read many good reviews, and while I lived in Jackson for several years prior to moving... More

If you can get past the smell of live/dead fish and the sketchy-ness of entering through an oriental market then you'll like Mr. Chen's. I was told that this was how authentic Chinese food was suppose to taste and I do believe it was truly authentic. I liked it but didn't love it. The atmosphere was a step below average... More

We have been going here since they opened. Great and authentic Chinese food. We have traveled to China multiple times and this is as close as we have found. You have to try the mini steamed buns.

Went here for lunch and it was a bit strange walking in because the restaurant is inside a traditional chinese grocery store. A little bit hesitant I went ahead and ordered lunch. The food was very reasonably priced and there portions were very ample. Co-workers loved the place too so I will definitely be heading back.

I've been a long time fan of Mr. Chen's but I think I visit the grocery side more than the restaurant side! So many unique and interesting items in the grocery store - the only place I've been able to find baby bok choy. They are quick and the food is good. The portions are pretty big too. This is...

I ordered takeout from Mr. Chen's and was thoroughly disappointed. The food was lacking flavor and it was very soggy almost like it was sitting out all day and then served. The wonton soup had way too much cilantro and green onions. Also, the wonton in the soup was mush. The beef and broccoli and veggie delight both and a... More

Visited for the first time this week. Roasted duck plate was fantastic, juicy and tender. The Kung pao chicken was my favorite. Only mild complaint is they didn't allow noodle substitution, even for additional fee, instead of rice. That was quickly forgotten when tasting the quality of the food. Hands down, recommend this place all day long.

We always eat here whenever in Jackson. The food is authentic American Chinese and the dishes are fairly priced. The service is always excellent. The place is clean. What else is there to say?

We have not been to Mr. Chen's since retirement, not being in that area quite as much as before. Browsing through the attached Grocery Store gave us an opportunity to transition into a great meal.This was a very pleasant visit and a reminder that we need to do this more often. My Wife and I decided to split an order... More
