I have been coming to this restaurant for over three years. And, they continue to serve tasteful dishes. For small party of 8 to 10, the peking duck is fine. Ask the matradee what is fresh catch of the day. Steamed fish in ginger and scallion sauce is good. Ok, be careful of spicy foods that waiter asks, "are you... More

Authentic food with good quality. The owner cares about the food he serves his customer. When I ordered a veggie dish, it tasted and smelled like a veggie dish, unlike that from some other place where the veggie dish had the fishy smell.

I'm an old NYC vet who enjoys the more authentic dishes and especially spicy. China Chalet is far superior to anything in the area, and i've tried them all. More interesting menu choices, good spice and consistent quality.

Long weekends are for family feasts, so we did not mind the 40-minute drive to come to this Chinese Restaurant that was highly recommended by friends. It was located in a bustling shopping plaza, and we liked the fact that there was plenty of parking available. We have now become quite familiar with Sichuan cuisine that goes a little beyond...

Better than many Chinese restaurants, in Taiwan, Hong Kong or even mainland China, where I have been many times.

There's an old Chinese proverb that warns about prejudgments and making decisions based on appearances and China Chalet, located in the Crescent Plaza strip mall in Florham Park, is a perfect example. While the China Chalet's location and exterior design are nondescript, the extensive dinner menu offers thirty plus appetizers, nine soups, nineteen poultry choices, twenty-three beef and pork selections,...
