Planned to meet friends here and were shocked to discover the place closed with a note on the door saying their had been a problem in the kitchen. Saw the 11:00 news and it turns out the Health Dept, shut them down to a rodent infestation. Gross. So maybe the chicken I was ordering wasn't really chicken???

This restaurant has been closed down by the board of health for "a few days" due to issues with rodents. Not good.

It's a little hole in the wall. Not big. Not tiny, but it's typical in it's décor. Not to worry. Chen Garden has been around for a very very long time. Justifiably so. The food is second to none. We have been going to this restaurant for many many years and have tried most of the dishes. The fried dumplings... More

Eating in an American Chinese restaurant for anyone who has lived in or even visited China and enjoyed the wonderful food there is always a disappointment. However, one keeps trying to find a place that "does it right" and a Chinese friend had recommended this restaurant so we were optimistic going in. We were especially excited by the endless menu...

Fabulous food - the lunch specials are super - adore the hot and sour soup - the best ever, and the fried pork dumplings are heaven; love the shrimp and peapods dish and so many more. Service is prompt, tea is delicious - can't wait to return!

Greatest selection that I have seen at a Chinese Food restaurant. I have been there 3 times and have not been disappointed yet.. Challenge yourself by trying something new.

Met a friend for lunch - I am extremely pleased with Chen Garden. The scallion pancakes with dipping sauce were one of the best things I have ever eaten. Great Hot & Sour Soup, and fantastic General Tso Chicken. Service was impeccable; the waiter (Joey) was very attentive. Great place - I will return many times

I can honestly say that this was the best Chinese food I have ever had in the United States. I have visited China multiple times on business and the food here is just as good as that I ate in China. We were in Rochester visiting friends who are Chinese and they took us here. I am so very glad!!... More

Met family here for a Sunday dinner. Everyone was happy with their meals. I love their extra spicy chicken dishes and was not disappointed. Service was efficient even on a very crowded evening. As we left, there was a waiting line nearly out to the door.
