First off it's bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. Inside the decor is higher end than any Chinese restaurant around. Full bar with stools if you want to stop in for drinks. Plenty of staff and very attentive. Food awesome. Some...More

It's a little hole in the wall. Not big. Not tiny, but it's typical in it's décor. Not to worry. Chen Garden has been around for a very very long time. Justifiably so. The food is second to none. We have been going to this...More
