I went during non peak hours since I had strict Gluten Free cross contamination procedures to request of them. Lady (owner?) and the cook were VERY accommodating and service focused! This place, even at low peak hours has a steady flow of to-go calls and pickups; but still I was waited on like I was a queen. She ensured extensive... More

The owner is from Thailand and visits her family there often - her knowledge and her culinary expertise are what run this business! This has been my family's favorite Asian food in Lubbock for over 10 years and it's just as good today as the first time we walked in!

Lubbock isn't exactly booming with options for good Chinese food, so I just expected middle of the road quality when I came to Uncle Chien's for lunch yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was, though! The restaurant isn't much to look at, but they really make up for it with service and the food. It is a... More

We were in the mood for Chinese food this evening so we ordered take out from Uncle Chien's. When we got home and divvied up each family members order we found that none of us had received the egg rolls we specifically ordered. My General Tso's Chicken and fried rice was mushy and bland for the most part. We are... More

Call ahead. I'm sure you will be pleased. I had yellow chicken curry. It was spicy but enjoyable. All meals served with rice and spring rolls. Generous portions. Great prices.

It is not a fancy place. There is not enough workforce to take care of all the stuff in time. Old small place but the food is cheap and very tasty in the same time. I used the Groupon once and will be there again because we enjoyed our food.

This is centrally located but off the beaten path. Good service and good food. I love that they serve a ton of veggies. We will be back.
