This place is comfortable, and really great food. Try the Garlic Eggplant... I can't believe that I actually regularly order a meatless dish...it's just that good. Service is personal and consistently dependable.

The food is just great with what appears a lot of effort goes into making it delicious to eat. The service is just great too and the atmosphere of the setting along with the staff invites you back again.

I am a regular. I have eaten most everything on the menu. The consistency is their strong point. The food is always fresh and hot. They are happy to tweak a dish for you. Service is fast and pleasant. My daughter and I have tried many, many other Chinese places and no matter how fancy or expensive we always end... More

Allen's is our "go to" restaurant for take out Chinese food. Highly recommend the crab dumplings, Orange chicken, sweet & sour chicken, and scallops with vegetables. This is the ONLY place we will order Chinese food. So good!

Very good Chinese, and I'm picky about my Chinese food. I've had chicken fried rice and sweet and sour chicken.

This was my first visit to Allen's, although we have ordered delivery several times prior to this. This is not your average take-out place! We were promptly seated and brought a delicious marinated cucumber salad without asking for it. Our food was hot, tasty, and spiced just how we ordered it. The server was polite and helpful in making our... More
