I am a sushi lover and my husband is allergic to shellfish. This place is amazing - best restaurant that will have you coming again over and over. We now order the same thing because it tastes so good. Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken, Scallion Pancake and Spring Rolls.

Come here 2 to 3 times a week. Very good food/sushi. Very friendly staff. Felix, Sammy and Tom all work hard to get to know you and give the best experience. Highly recommend.

My wife is Chinese and I have acquired a taste for real Chinese cooking, so many places load up the dishes with salt and sugar for American tastes. The dishes we selected were OK but nothing stood out. It certainly was not as good as North Garden or Chen Yang Li. Nice atmosphere

We have always loved the food at Aloha (its our go to for Chinese) but decided to venture out and try a different place. This place didn't disappoint!

I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. The ambience is light-filled and nicely decorated. Everything here is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Everyone has had the "typical" Chinese dishes, but they are elevated here to the divine. Everything is hot, nothing is greasy, including their light and airy, but generously-stuffed crab Rangoon, the eggrolls and... More

Everything is fresh and simple.. Owners take pride! I've been there so many times and I can not remember one thing I've complained about.. I love the whole menu and in my opinion has the best spicey Tina rolls in town if you like sushi.. Dine in or takeout Chen is Manchester's finest Chinese!

Tried this place as an option to North Garden and it will be my first and last time. Food was poor at best, had hot and sour soup, very bland and not much substance, sweet and sour pork which appeared to be microwaved with the sauce served on the side, and garlic noodles which turned out to be angel hair...

If you want good quality and quantity of food, this is a great place to go! Their Chinese dishes are the classics with some of their own specialties as well. Their Japanese includes very fresh fish and good portions. I've had sashimi, nigiri, and rolls and they do a great job with all of it. The staff hustle about and... More
