Warning! I ate lunch there and was so sick the entire day and night afterwards. Possibly food poisoning. Luckily I did not eat much of my entree as it was so sugary sweet (I had the cashew chicken). Would NOT recommend this restaurant.

I have going here for years off and on and never had a bad moment. Last night girlfriend and I went and the food was horrible. I ordered the Peking Beef which is described as "sliced beef tenderloin in a spicy and pugent sauce". It was sesame SUPER SWEET and sugary....ground beef? Maybe it was fried and crispy? I had 2 bites and couldnt handle it. I asked if this is what it was suppose to taste like and he said yes. I called them today to ask for the manager who wasnt it.....and explained my experience. " The recipe is 39 year old and nobody ever complain but you". Fine. I will never go back and will never recommend it to anyone. I do blame myself for not speaking up but I was on a date and didnt want to be "that guy". Well I learned a lesson and learned where I will never go again.

Absolutely the best Chinese Restaurant for miles. Light, tasty food. Not all the grease and oil - no heavy batter on the meats. I will not eat anywhere else for Chinese food since having eaten at House of Chan.

Some of the best Chinese Food in ATL outside of Buford Hwy. We go 1-2 times a week for 8 years. Lunch specials are great value. We always have leftovers from the dinner portions. Some of our favorites are Tangerine Chicken, Kong Pau Chicken, Egg Foo Yong, Double Cooked Pork, Moo Goo Gai Pan... their Hot & Sour Soup is To Die For! Fresh ingredients are very evident.

I'm from New York and have been searching for about 3 years for great Chinese. I have travelled all over Atlanta in search of it. I went to House of Chan's because of all the positive reviews. I ordered the General Tso's Chicken and it came with fried rice. My boyfriend ordered 10wings and vegetable rice. I can honestly say they have the freshest and lightest tasting chicken i've had in Georgia. But honestly I will say the food isn't as great as everyone says. I will say the Chinese is about as good as you can get in Georgia. The chicken is awesome, But the chicken wings were salty but they were fried well and they tasted great-minus the salt. The rice was very light and tasty but they had NO salt on it. I would recommend this place. All in all the food was great. But I content on believing that the best Chinese comes from China, New York and California. Everything else is second to it. I will surely eat there again. Maybe they had an off night. hope this helps

Pros: Real Chicken

Cons: Either too much salt or not enough

My husband and I no longer eat at House of Chan. This makes me very sad, b/c despite the fact that their egg rolls and crab rangoon were never very good, they had the best sesame chicken and beef/broccoli and we actually loved their free hot tea. We ate there a few times a month, and the small staff there started to recognize us.

The hostess is very nice, I swear. But it slowly escalated from greeting us warmly, to chatting for a moment when she sat us, to stopping by to chat while we were eating, to sitting and talking with us until our food arrived ... until the last time we went, when she pulled a chair up to our booth and talked to us the whole time we were there. We provided one-word answers to her questions, didn't ask any of our own, referred to it as our "date night" ... all to no avail. It was just too awkward, so we stopped going.

Anyway, the entrees are really amazing, so I highly recommend House of Chan ... just don't be too friendly with the staff, I guess.

Pros: Great prices, yummy entrees, kind staff, clean place

Cons: the deep-fried appetizers (egg rolls, crab rangoon) always seemed to be cool in the middle; overbearing hostess

This is quite simply a great Chinese place. Instead of the heavy, greasy chinese that other places serve, the food here tastes fresh and light. Today the special was sesame chicken, and the star is the chicken. The batter and glaze compliment the meat instead of the other way around. My only gripe is that egg rolls or soup do not come as part of the entree.

Best chinese I've had. The quality is first class and the ingredients are always fresh and the sauces flavorful. Try the popular Dragon Horse Chicken or Shrimp. My favorite is the Black Pepper Shrimp.Dinner menu has many specials. Fills up quickly at lunch, go early.Fast service and friendly staff.

Fresh, fresh,fresh! Not your usual Chinese restaurant...
General Tso's Chicken is my favorite! Sweet and spicy with tender chicken.
Nice atmosphere. Not too large so get there early for lunch or you'll have to wait in line that trails outside the door.

The House of Chan isn't your average strip mall Chinese restaurant. It's been family run for over 20 years. The food was good, different than your average fair. I had the egg drop soup, which was slightly less salty than some versions. I also had the fried rice, which was not as greasy as some; it tasted lighter. My only complaint was that the rice did not have many vegetables in it.. My dining companion had the house special of shrimp, beef, and tofu. I enjoyed a few pieces of his tofu, and the soy based sauce was quite good. Service was pleasant and very prompt. The hot tea that is included with the meal is very flavorful. It is a few dollars more than most Chinese restaurants, but the fresh food is worth the price.

I sure do miss House of Chan. Living in Florida now and sure wish I had my Dragon House Chicken. Food is "refreshingly" fresh and excellent quality. Yumm!

My mother used to work just around the corner from The House of Chan back in the 80's. My family and I have been going there ever since. Most of my friends that I bring to Chan's think that all Chinese food is the same. They are greatly mistaken! This is one of the finest restaurants I have ever eaten at. Great service and the food is to die for. The hunan shrimp and lemon chicken are personal favorites, however, the black pepper chicken, mongolian beef, and seaseme chicken are great as well. Give it one try and you will be hooked like I am.

Everything here was way too greasy for my taste...I don't think I'll be coming back. The staff seemed like they definitely paid special attention to regular patrons, but were polite to newcomers as well. The decor is nothing special, but what do you expect on Cobb Parkway? ;-)

We became familiar with the House of Chan when we lived in Smyrna a few years back and dined there at least once a week. After moving to North Carolina, we were unable to find another Chinese restaurant with the quality of food and service that we had grown accustomed to at the HOC. For that reason, whenever we really need a "good Chinese food fix", we drive from our home just outside Greensboro to Smyrna for the HOC. We've yet to be disappointed, even though our friends think were a little nuts!

Being a relative newcomer to Smyrna, I found out about this place from others who'd lived here a long time and tried all the other places. The food is top notch, and the service, though it may be a bit matter-of-fact for some, is always pleasant enough for me. Many servers appear to have been there a long time, since I see the same ones over and over. The black pepper chicken is exceptional!

This cozy family-owned restaurant has been around for 20+ years and has been a long time favorite of ours. We've tried some of the other new ones in the area, but we keep coming back because of the excellent food and good smiling service. This place has been recognized every year in Zagat's since way back before 1997. Some of the delicious dishes you must try include Hunan Seabass, Honey Crystal Shrimp, Pecan Chicken, Tangerine Beef....and their house specialty Kulu Chicken. Try those and I guarentee you'll be back for more.

We started with wonton and hot and sour soups. Standard fare.

For our main dishes we ordered the Hunan eggplant with chicken, veggy fried rice and veggy moo shu. The eggplant dish was very tasty. Just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Everything was as tender as could be. The moo shu and fried rice were disappointing, however. Very underseasoned and lacking in, believe it or not, vegetables. Little depth of flavor.

Other notes: For Cantonese cuisine, the food was remarkably grease free.

I have been going to House of Chan at least 15 or so years now and being a Native down here I have to say that this restaurant is one of the best kept secrets. HOC has consistently top notch food and great service. It is definitely worth the trip to Cobb Parkway.

I almost hate to let this cat out of the bag. This is one of the best chinese restaurants I've ever eaten at. The Chans have run it for years--Mrs. Chan does the cooking and Mr. Chan takes care of the patrons. The food is always very fresh and the dishes are great. The specials depend upon what was freshest at the market and are usually one of the menu highlights. Once you try this, all other chinese food will pale in comparison. They have a pretty loyal following, so make reservations.
