The food was rubber and the staff was cold. Come to think of it, so was the soup, the chicken and even the pepper steak. I have eaten at several chinese restaurants. I am no expert but it was not wotuh the price I paid.

We went to Cho-Sen Island with family on a visit to Long Island. We were there for lunch, so we took advantage of the lunch special, which included soup, a decent choice of mains, and sorbet for dessert. You can replace the white rice with fried rice for a dollar extra. A couple of people enjoyed the corn soup; the... More

Great service and excellent food. Everything on the menu is great - albeit a bit pricy. Sesame chicken is sweeter and crispier than General Tso. Will definitely be returning!

Very cheapy food at a very nice fancy restaurant. The restaurant is a little fancy, good service and good atmosphere, but the food is really cheapy. The restaurant is very expansive for cheap Chinese, the food is like fast Chinese food from around the corner but the price is like fancy high quality restaurant

Have been going to this restaurant for several years. Wait staff ,although very stiff, prompt and very quick to bring your food to you. Food tasty but a bit too much sauces on their dishes. Decor standard Chinese restaurant , clean. Recommend if your visiting the neighborhood and need a quick,good meal.

I go here all the time. It's nice enough for the casual dinner out of the house and still affordable enough for the restaurant takeout to eat at home. Their food is good and their portion sizes are pretty big. They have a party room upstairs. Reservations are welcome although if you are a party of 2 its not always... More

I recently dined at Cho-Sen Island and was very pleased with the friendly service and fresh food. The menu selection is not so big but well focused in quality. Reservations are recommended, especially for parties with 5+ people. The restaurant also does catering and takeout.

Mid-scale, you can feel comfortable going alone with a date, or with a family. If you like Chinese cuisine, they do a really good job with it. Try some of the batter-dipped fried items if you don't mind the fat and calories, because those are excellent. The sushi menu is more than passable as well.

We have visited many times over many years and it's consistently good food, good service and friendly faces and wait staff. It's available for small private parties too and they go out of their way to be as accommodating as possible. It's good for a quiet business lunch or a family get together dinner.
