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.

Pros: Food is way overrated, lacks flavor and freshness

Cons: Food is overrated, lacks flavor and freshness

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.

Pros: hmmmmm......

Cons: Bland food, stomach hurts

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.

Pros: Average food, average service

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.

I have only had Chen's for takeout so I cannot comment on the service or atmosphere but the food is always great. Their delivery is prompt and reliable and the menu is large and very diverse. Look for coupons in mailers or on takeout menus.

Went here on a business trip for my work and decided to look around the hot spots in Chicago. Let to know that I didn't end up in such a hot place.
Not only was my food uncooked, it seemed like it was sitting there for a little bit.
How would I know?
I sat there staring at the diner place where they put the food on top so the waiter can get it. If I knew it was mine forsure, I would've walked and picked it up myself.
I polietly asked them to reheat it, and the lady gave me an attitude so I just left.

I did not like this place at all. My food was nasty and cold and the service was terrible. They were very slow and when I complained about my food they complained BACK. I will never go back and I advise everyone to never go there.

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.

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.

Pros: Delivery guys are fast and nice enough

Cons: Food I wouldn't give my dog

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.

Pros: Casino dish

Cons: Parking, park at McDonald's for $10 if you can't find street parking

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!

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.

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!

i've been going to chen's for 10 years. their sushi cannot be beat, nor can their ambience. their prices are perfectly in line. some of the things you may want to try are the white tuna crunch (which is not on the menu) and, for a hot dish, the general tao which is made with either shrimp, chicken or tofu or all 3, and you can get it low-fat. parking on the street is awful (it IS in wrigleyville after all), but there is a reasonable parking lot right next door that discounts for going to chen's.

We had a couple of noodle dishes for takeout a few weeks ago and both were very good, with huge portions. We'll be getting a lot of takeout from Chen's.

A while back i had ordered take-out from Chens and my order was completely wrong. but i ate what they gave me, however, it wasn't what i had ordered. on valentine's day, i decided to spend a romantic evening at home with my bf so i decided to order from Chens again. by the time i got home with my food i found out that they forgot half of my order. Finally last night, i decided to try Chen's again. I ordered the Lemon Chicken. The description sounded delicious, "crispy chicken, tangy, lemon flavor." Not one of those words could have been used to describe my dish. it was absoluetly terrible. the chicken was tough and the outside was soggy and to top it off, the majority of the dish was all cooked fruit (apples, oranges, pineapple....). Nothing on the mention mentioned that the dish. It was absolutely terrible. i don't think i've ever been that disappointed with a restauarant.

I loved this place, especially for a date. it is dimly lit and totally romantic, not to mention the food is great!!! Try the Crispy Duck and the Mongolian Dinner with all three meats--fabulous!!! We were seated right away, it is quiet and a relaxing place, and the waitress was great!! Love it!!

Our first Chinese in Chicago after moving from LA. The atmosphere is great, and our server couldn't have been nicer. We hated the lobster dumplings (tasteless), so he took them off our check. The other dishes were very fresh, but too heavily sauced -- like the food was dumbed down. Too bad -- this place could be wonderful with a lighter touch in the kitchen.

I've tried sushi many times over the years and never liked it. This place offered some great options for you to get your friends hooked on it (like I was). The staff was great, the presentation of food was great. Just beware of Cubs game days though, the drunken crowds that pile into the streets can get annoying while you enjoy your food.

Pros: Inexpensive, great decor, nice break from neighborhood establishments, Great Service, Tuna Crunch Rolls

Cons: Don't dine here when Cubs games let out (open windows make drunks annoying)

Had dinner w/ friends did not have reservations on a Saturday Night but were promptly seated. Everyone in my party had sushi. We were all more then satisfied w/ the portions. The prices were more then reasonable as well. Can't wait to go back.

Great place for a date, business meeting, and to bring the family. High chairs available. Spacious seating with a fireplace next to the bar and comfy chairs to lounge in. Service was excellent and prompt!! Best vegeable roll appetizer I've experienced. Even the washrooms were impressive, adorned with candlescapes, I felt like I was at the spa. I will definately return and recommend this restaurant to others.
