My son and I went here after a long day of hiking. The menu is large, the portions are good size. My son ordered the shrimp with egg noodles. It didn't have much flavor and was heavy on the noodles. I had the sizzling seafood which was ok. Service was good and everyone was very friendly. Filled the hunger but was unremarkable.

I hadn't gone here for a while and decided to try it again. The sweet and sour chicken was cooked in a tempura and you had to pour the sweet and sour sauce on top. No flavor. The asparagus chicken was ok. Too much $$ for what you get and the fortune cookies were stale.

The co-owners, Tim & Jay do a very good job of making you feel welcome. The servers are accommodating & always try their best.

Food is good, although nothing stands out or is special.

Most of the time I go for their lunch buffet, which again, is quite decent, but not outstanding. Very good value for the price.

Food is average in quality, service decent, and prices reasonable. Parking is plentiful. Not a lot to say, but OK for lunch or dinner.

Uncle Chen's has good lunch specials and a lunch buffet. Always fresh and hot. Staff is nice and service is fast. Convenient to others stores in the area. Right off El Camino Real on 41st Ave., across from Mollie Stone's.
