We stopped here last night for dinner basically because it was the only place open in town...lucky us! After traveling all day from MA we were starving and the food did not disappoint. I got the Happy Family and though everything on the plate was delicious I couldn't finish. My sister got the beef and broccoli and again though delicious... More

Not much taste. Service was polite and quick. Odd set up with tv over a few tables (everyone watching tv over our heads) the food the was not very thought out. Soups were ok but main courses were flat without much thought. Hunan chicken had lots of fresh Vegas but not much taste. I added soy sauce to get some... More

Great food and pleasant service. B1g1 sushi roll is tantalizing too! Sushi is always fresh and made at the time of order, the owner pretty much had my order already memorized to a science

I thought I would try it but not impressed. Chinese food is Chinese food. The pad thai did not impress me and they charged me extra for siracha. I even had to ask for napkins, silverware and chop stick. I always wondered how they stay in business as parking lot is never full and I'm still asking that same question.

The wife and I had dinner at Chen's tonight. We wanted some variety, and we were hungry for Asian food. We were seated right way and the waitress was at our table immediately. My wife ordered mango shrimp and I had hungry family. The food was delivered to our table quickly and was piping hot. The servings were generous and... More

I cannot understand why some reviewers refer to this place as the best Chinese food in Carlisle, PA. I ate here during a quiet time of the day, and was one of only two people eating there. Despite this, the waitress was surly and impatient, slapped down a menu in the worst corner of the front, and made it clear... More

While visiting Carlisle, PA., I wanted to taste some Asian cuisine. I had been passing Chen's Asian Restaurant for the last three days and decided to stop in. I found the staff very nice and helpful and their menu offered lots of entrees. I ordered General Tso's Chicken and it was very delicious. Much better than the take-out I often... More

By far, Chen's is the best in Carlisle. This said, Carlisle does not have many choices for Chinese. The kids love it, we tolerate it.
