Relatively more comfortable than most in town, with a choice of dishes that's different from the most common ones here. We had a few dishes with some high and lows: grilled eggplants were extremely greasy, while hot spicy mushrooms and spinach and peanut salad were very good. Other were somewhere in between. Quite expensive in the end, especially due to... More

Serving high quality, home made Chinese and Asian food. I especially loved the peppered shrimp. Friendly and solicitous service, great value: 4 people ate and drank for 81 euro.

Like I said, I have discovered this "Gem" if you will, as I tried all other Oriental places in Atlantic City...... I was unsatisfied with all the others. I am now on a first name basis with the people managing, wait staff, front desk....... who have this nice little nook. My opinion is "superb" food, very tasty and an enjoyment... More

I have been at Chef J a few times and I never got disappointed. Ask the chef about the mandchu specials. I think they do not use glutamate to keep the food fresh and juicy like many chinese restaurants do. The ingredients and the spices are the key here. First time I tried some fish in a chinese restaurant and... More

Saturday evening is dedicated to Pekin-style duck, crispy skin and meat served with thin pancakes and a light duck broth. Very good, do not hesitate. To be recommended as well the Manchuria dumplings and the shrimps with ginger and leeks. Everything is fresh and tasty, service attentive and quick. Recommended.
