Overall
Chen's - another underwhelming experience in chinese cuisine

I was recommended by a friend to try Chen's on Clark. I was immensely dissappointed in my experience. The flavors at chen's lack depth, and the food is unoriginal and uninspiring. Because there is so much bad chinese food out there, i was hopeful that Chen's would be a welcome departure from the plethora of bad chinese restaurants. I was wrong. Chen's is just another in a long live of substandard chinese restaurants. Yen's, on Clark street, as well, is much much better. I definitely recommend them over Chen's.

Mr. Chen should be ashamed

How is it possible that my fried rice had mushrooms, peas, carrots, and other veggies in it yet had no taste. These veggies must have been frozen since 1995 for there to be absolutley no flavor coming from them when they were cooked with the rice. I have tasted better more flavorful chicken from Mcdonalds than I did from Mr. Chen's restaraunt.

Did I mention that I was sick for 2 days after eating here? The only good thing that came from eating here is that I now have a stock pile of pepto bismol and other stomach remedies in my cabinet that I had to go out and buy.

Mr. Chen.....I would give your restaraunt 0 stars if possible.

Average Chinese, with the understanding that the average in town is not very good

Another typica chinese dive, but one that pretends to offer more, Chen's greatly disappoints. There 's only one decent chinese restaurant in Chicago right now... and that is Shanghai Terrace in the city.... that's the cold hard truth.

Sushi-only review

I am not sure that I have tasted much worse sushi. We ordered relatively common items (california roll, salmon maki, etc.) and none tasted fresh or very good. Not sure about the Chinese menu, but I would never order sushi from Chens again.

pretty good

I ordered delivry and it was delivered very quickly. And actually good I ordered sushi and chicken fried rice. They gave me free egg rolls. That was cool! Very cool! I called a nd complained about lack of sauces they offered to bring more, but I did find more soy under the sushi. And they added cilantro to my hand roll. mmmmm..... More mustards and soy would still be nice. I'm just sayin.
Order form here just tell em you need extra sauces I guess.

Overall
Really, really bad

I've had nothing but bad experiences with the quality of the food delivered from here (I've never been in the restaurant itself). The first time I got sushi, and it tasted like the junk you can get at Jewel, with the small pieces and plastic-like aftertaste. I thought this must have been just a fluke, so I tried it again a few weeks later. Same thing. Not fresh at all. I then thought perhaps sushi simply wasn't their strong suite, so I tried some other dishes. Their pork is so fatty , mushy (!), and bland to the point I question if it is even truly pork, and the chicken in the fried rice seems below fast food quality.

I don't see how anyone can possibly give this place a good review based on the food. My only guess is these people are new to the city and/or these sorts of restaurants in general. This place is flat out terrible. Even Panda Express is better. I gave this place several chances...no more.

Try their Casino Sushi DIsh, it's out of this world

I've been with some friends here a couple times and i love their dishes. Order the Casino, it's not on the menu but you won't regret it. Even their new Fire Fried Sushi, is great. The only thing I didn't like was the Vegetable Tempura, the sauce wasn't that good, but everything else was great. As for martini's, try the GQ, it's yummy.

My favorite place

They have awesome orange chicken but I noticed they tend to get orders wrong sometimes during delivery. So if you have a certain request, make sure to repeat yourself or they'll have to come back for it!

Overall
Healthy Chinese Food

My favorite Chinese restaurant in Chicago. You know that sick feeling you get when you eat too much Chinese food and you feel somewhat greasy? You don't get that here. It's a little pricey but worth it and the ingredients are fresh. The ambiance is nice and romantic too, great for couples or large groups. If you're looking for cheap grubby Chinese food, this place isn't it. I always leave this place with a smile on my face.

Overall
worst chinese food in the city

the worst chinese/asian food I've ever had--disgusting!! the teriaki chicken was inedible and the chicken chow fun was soggy and tasteless. I threw away $30 of food and ended up eating a lean cuisine frozen dinner instead which was much better tasting. I had my order delivered and the delivery man was fast and nice so I can't say anything bad about the service. i will NEVER order from here again!
