Chen's has fresh, well-prepared choices on the extensive buffet. The Hot and Sour Soup is wonderful and there are several shrimp choices. You can tell there are real cooks here. There is even a dessert table, sample-sized so you can try a couple. We were...More

Chen's serves the average Chinese foods you would expect in this plain but clean restaurant. It's somewhat a throwback to the menus of Chinese restaurants of a few decades ago but that's no problem if such bland food suits you. The egg rolls are forgettable....More

Good food, but buffet is taken down right at 7:30 so keep that in mind they do not keep refilling with fresh food if towards closing time. Service is so so, there was a new waitress this time and she was much better.

This is the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food was cold and tasteless. The hot and sour soup was watered down and cold. The "buffet" had sat for hours and was no doubt leftovers from the day before. It was TERRIBLE.
