Chen Garden: Located in Karns, Tennessee

Restaurant Reviewed: Chen Garden, 7658 Oak Ridge Highway, Knoxville (Karns), TN 37931

Family Friendly: Yes

Recommended to Others: Yes

Why? Great food, excellent service, reasonable prices


One of the first restaurant themes we sought out after moving to Tennessee two years ago was a good Chinese food restaurant. Chen Garden has consistently exceeded our expectations, and now despite several other Chinese restaurants being closer to us, we always return to Chen Garden when we are in the mood for Chinese food.

We have tried many of the dishes offered, including: Shrimp Lo Mein, General Tso's Chicken, Moo Goo Gai Pan, Sweet and Sour Pork, Beef with Mushrooms, Chicken with Broccoli, Pepper Steak, Kung Pao Shrimp, Kung Pao Chicken and egg rolls. Everything we have eaten from this restaurant has been absolutely delicious. It is perfectly seasoned and the meats have been tender and juicy. In addition, they use deveined shrimp, which as any shrimp connoisseur recognizes, makes for a much better dinner experience.

The staff are friendly and efficient. They greet each customer as soon as they enter the restaurant, and even held the door for me when I was leaving with our last order. We often order quite a bit of food and even when they are busy the food comes out fast, hot and the orders are filled accurately.

Finally, the prices are very reasonable for the portions offered. It is no more expensive than fast food "value" meals, yet is probably healthier than most burger restaurant meals. I would highly recommend Chen Garden to anyone in the Greater Knoxville area that is looking for great Chinese food at reasonable prices served by an excellent staff.
