Chef's is a small unassuming little restaurant in a strip mall but what it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in service and food quality! Delicious Chinese food cooked to order, and served hot and in generous portions . We often get takeout here.

We stopped here for dinner on a Friday night (about 6:00) after our volunteer work. We wanted to have something quick before a long drive home. It was quick, but the facility was VERY hot and we wanted to eat in. I had the house fried rice and it was very bland. There was lots of good chicken, but the... More

Not only the best Chinese take out but order the donuts! You won't be disappointed. Every meal has been fast and consistently good. No complaints here.

The best Chinese food in the Lexington area. They have a small buffet with all the usuals. It recently went up in price and is now $6.95. Very fast take out.

We often get "take out" from Chin's and always enjoyed this tasty food. The servings are very big and well prepared. Sweet and sour Chicken and their vegetables are a favorite. Often we go to their lunch buffet which is well stocked and well prepared. Chin's is in a shopping strip-nothing fancy but just good food. Give it a try.

Very good "cheap" Chinese as we call it. This is our weekly take out. Crab Stuffed Rangoon, Shrimp in Lobster Sauce, white rice with non-spicy brown sauce. YUM!! We will be trying the lunch buffet.

Chen's is my go-to take out. They are fast and courteous and the place is clean. I have never had an order mix-up or bad food. Reasonable prices as well.

The Food quality and price are always right where they should be. Easy to call in and it is ready in 10-15 minutes every time. The ingredients are fresh and their recipes are good as they should be. No surprises, just classic great cheap Chinese take-out. Look out for the posted hours though as I have often called in frustration... More

Perfect for grabbing takeout after battling the horde at Publix. Food is good and plentiful. Excellent selection for picky eaters. A hidden treat is the chicken on a stick. SImply outstanding.
