Every year we come to Calais for shopping and dinner out at Chen Family Garden. The food and portions are excellent and the kids are cute. We love this place and find it a superior place to eat if you enjoy really good Chinese food...More

We have eaten here a few times when visiting the area. The restaurant itself is small and very dated but the service is quick and friendly and we enjoyed everything that we tried (mostly selections from the combo menu). We shared everything and there was...More

We politely asked if we might have the egg rolls that come with our order placed in a separate container or bag so that they might not spend the hour it takes to get them home bathing in the grease from the other menu items....More

-Quality, quantity, and service.....fantastic. The "facilities" (at least the men's) is exceptionally clean....not something this locale was known for in the past. You went through the door to eat a great meal, not to analyze the décor :>)
