Food as always was phenomenal, the restaurant is cute and clean, the waitstaff is super friendly and nice.
Everything was pretty good. The only issue was I had special instructions of no onions and no peppers on anything that I order and the pork fried rice today was full of onions.
Food was good.
the beef in the Mongolian beef was extremely tough and chewy. I could not eat it.
Mr. Chen's food is always hot and fresh.
The ordering process was clear and easy, and the pickup service was excellent -- fast and polite.
Mr Chen is the best Chinese food our family has had ever!! It is amazing!
Mr Chen’s rocks! So does your ordering service!
Perfect as always
Mr. Chen's rocks! The freshest chinese food ever! Quality and taste unsurpassed anywhere!
The service was good and the market was so cool to walk through! The food was good but not as good as I thought it would be -- was a little disappointed but that does not mean the food tasted bad by any means just not the "made by grandma" flavor I was hoping for -- with the exception of the wonton soup that was actually very delicious.
Very fresh and great portions. A great value
This place is good for basic Chinese food - at a good price! Really large portions! We always share!
food was good typical Mr. Chen. Singapore Rice noodle and Curry Shredded Chicken are too much alike to make them fun to share. We ordered medium heat and should have ordered something HOT. We bought dinner to go everything was well packaged and hot when we got home. Go and enjoy nothing bad at Mr Chen
Great food and service
Ordering was easy. The lady at Mr. Chen's even called me immediately to confirm how spicy I wanted my food and any special orders I requested. The food is always great and customer service has been excellent.
Deliciousness in a take away box; What could be better? Great food!
Loved the dumplings and sweet and sour chicken. Not fond of the soup.
As always the food was delicious!! Loved ordering through Beyond Menu. Going to become my "go to" way to order food going forward. Was seamless.
Another amazing meal from Mr. Chen's, I highly recommend the Mongolian Beef.
The food is always great quality for pick-up or dining in.
Food was delicious as always, very fresh and tastes authentic.
After much anticipation, I finally made my first visit to Mr. Chen's Homewood. The restaurant is nice and very clean, and is housed in an amazing Marketplace. The staff was prompt and the service was fine in general; however the food was mediocre at best, and looked a lot better than it tasted. It seemed like they put the right amount of effort into preparing the meal, except for the part where they actually seasoned it, with something other than MSG. The consistency of everything ordered was great, but it was all terribly bland. The eggrolls were cripsy, but bland. The Steamed Dumplings were the best thing we ordered, but again pretty bland especially without the sauce. The Kung Pao Combo came highly recommended, but now I am severely questioning those who recommended it, because I certainly would not. If that is one of the best things on the menu, I'd hate to taste the rest. The Kung Pao Combo was severely lacking in protein, and there was definitely a lot more zucchini than there was meat. Even though I ordered it "mild" it had absolutely no kick whatsoever; I would expect even the "mild" version of Kung Pao anything to have a little bit of kick...it's named "Kung Pao" for a reason, which is why I ordered the mild in the first place. I also had to add a ton of salt and other seasonings to the Kung Pao in order for it to be tolerable. I will probably not be back to the restaurant. Even though I split the meal between two people, we ended up throwing most of the meal away because a)it was so bland, and b) they use a lot of MSG which ended up making me sick. I have an adverse reaction to MSG, so I can tell if they use it in their food... and they definitely do....which is I also why cannot eat food from Hunan Wok across the street either (but I would choose them over Mr. Chen's if I absolutely had to choose between those two). From now on I will stick to The Red Pearl and the Great Wall, who have never disappointed me. I would have given less stars if my review were based only on the food alone.
The lettuce wraps were sweet so we could not eat them. Everything else was really good. Not sure why they put sugar in lettuce wraps.
Any questions please call us.
