Eating in an American Chinese restaurant for anyone who has lived in or even visited China and enjoyed the wonderful food there is always a disappointment. However, one keeps trying to find a place that "does it right" and a Chinese friend had recommended this restaurant so we were optimistic going in. We were especially excited by the endless menu...

Fabulous food - the lunch specials are super - adore the hot and sour soup - the best ever, and the fried pork dumplings are heaven; love the shrimp and peapods dish and so many more. Service is prompt, tea is delicious - can't wait to return!

Greatest selection that I have seen at a Chinese Food restaurant. I have been there 3 times and have not been disappointed yet.. Challenge yourself by trying something new.

Met a friend for lunch - I am extremely pleased with Chen Garden. The scallion pancakes with dipping sauce were one of the best things I have ever eaten. Great Hot & Sour Soup, and fantastic General Tso Chicken. Service was impeccable; the waiter (Joey) was very attentive. Great place - I will return many times

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
