Had a great night at Mr Chans last night for my Wife's 65th birthday.
Food and service were excellent as always.
The best Chinese restaurant in the north.
Having dined at Chans for over 20 years I would say the experience I get everytime is 2nd to none the food is always fresh and taste's fantastic, Charlie and Loi are always very welcoming hosts and go out of their way to help with any needs you have, I do advise that you book your tables especially for the weekend as is does get busy,I look foward to each time I eat out with the wife even more so when its chans.
Have visited this restaurant on many occasions, and have always been impressed with the quality of the food. There is a nice ambiance, the owner(who is almost always in attendance) and his staff are very attentive and friendly.We are particularly impressed with the way they deal with the special dietary requirements for two of our usual party who are stricken with multiple food allergies. A visit here is always an enjoyable experience.
Well, was looking for a different Chinese and found this one after looking at this site and reading the reviews. " fabulous food.......quality was amazing.........better than I had before.......little jewel that nobody knows about.....the best chinese that I have ever been to" , so packed the missus and kids into the car and headed down there. Looked at the picture of the outside of the place but didnt let it put me off. WHAT A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT. It is a low class chinese with low class food. There are far more superior chinese restaurants in St Helens. Think these reports have been left by people who dont travel any further than the bottom of their street. For the quality of the food the prices are a joke. It cost us over £150 and all everyone was looking forward to was getting a Mcflurry on the way home. Soft drinks warm and flat and come from a large bottle, but charged at very large prices. Food was extremely bland and to rate it as the best ever really is an insult to the other restaurants in St helens. I have had far better quality from many a takeaway. We eat out as a family at least once a week so my advice to anyone who hasnt been to Mr Chans before is dont bother.

Fabulous food, served in a warm and friendly environment. Highly recommended to all Chinese food lovers.
My husband and I visited Chans for the first time on sat 7th may 2011 not knowing what to expect. We were seated in the long area and given menus and it wasn't long before Charlie Chan greeted us personally. He was so friendly and likeable we felt very welcome. We were taken to our table where our starters were waiting for us which was lovely. We found the food portions weren't huge but the quality was amazing. The siu mai starter was so meaty and fresh - better than I had had before. I chose the deep fried crispy shredded beef as a main and was pleasantly surprised when out came tender thick pieces of beef in a very light tempura batter - not at all greasy. My husband loved his special chow mien too. All in all a lovely evening with excellent food and we will be going back soon.
would never recommend this place at all. Not expensive, but the food was greasy and the place quite shady in my opinion.
My husband and I love this restaurant it is like a quite little jewel that nobody knows about. The food is fab Charlie and his staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. You never feel rushed you are able to sit and relax and enjoy the food, company & atmosphere. We enjoy it so much we have recommended it too friends and family. We are having my nieces sweet 16th birthday there tomorrow nightx
the service was excellent. food superb. very clean will be highly recommending to friends and family. we have booked again for an important function my mothers 90th birthday. was recommended to us by friends am i grateful.
I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that Mr Chan's is by far the best Chinese restaurant I have ever been to - Charlie is absolutely lovely and is a terrific host and ,makes you feel very very welcome!! Great night out in a superb atmosphere.
No hesitation in recommending it to anyone!!
