Visiting from out of town and staying on the Queen Mary we found this restaurant. Ken our waiter was fabulous. Food was great portions and we enjoyed the family style won ton soup. Great place for a big group to eat.

If you're expecting PF Chang or Pickup Stix, this is not the place for you. Service is sub par which is typical of real Asian restaurants. If you go to an Asian restaurant and the waiter is nice, beware! Take PF Chang for example. This not real Chinese food. PF stands for Peter Fleming. Recognize the steak house? Yes it's... More

Called for takeout at 4:10. Asked for it to be ready at 5PM. Got there at 4:50 pm. Food sitting in window. Felt warm and was plentiful. Everything (shrimp, rice, veggies so very soggy. No flavor on anything. Black mushroom tasted funny & actually spit it out. I would not return.

Vegetarians rejoice! Start with the mu shu and stay for the orange tofu, bean curd with green beans, and order everything else to eat tomorrow. Everything here is good - lo mein, chow mein, spring rolls, wonton soup. Chen's is a place I starve myself for in advance. Best Chinese in the USA, and I eat Chinese food constantly!

I had no where to really go, so stopped in here. It looks like a typical Chinese food place, the staff are friendly, but the portions are just too big. I ended up having to throw away most of it.

This place has really good food, but the stay and environment are on the low side. But you can't have high hopes when you go for authentic Chinese food.

I've eaten at Chen's both times I visited Long Beach. The prices were reasonable. A combination plate, which includes soup, and egg roll, and crab rangoon, is under $11. You can get less expensive entrees without the combo. The waiter was good about keeping our water glasses full and empty plates cleared. The dining area is clean and is able... More

I love Chen's for their delivery and delicious Hot & Sour Soup. I reviewed this place before but unfortunately, I can no longer recommend it. The physical restaurant location is just too dirty and the carpet is in serious need of cleaning. To top it off, they were recently cited and closed for cockroaches! If they clean this place up...

This was my first visit to Chen's. We were in the mood for delicious Asian flavors. We were not familiar with the menu, so we decided to go with the family dinners which include appetizers and entrees. The appetizers were ok: two ribs, two spring rolls, flattened deep-fried shrimp all on a plate. Our first entrée, shrimp with lobster sauce... More

I liked the family dinners. They give you a large serving. They also have the best wonton soup I've ever tasted.
