Great tasting grub – I've heard people say that this may not be authentic blah blah blah. I've eaten at a lot of Pan-Asian restaurants and Doc Chey's is tasty. They flavor their food extremely well, and portions and prices are excellent especially given their Virginia-Highlands locale. Try it for yourself!
Fast Food Thai – It's exactly what you expect, fast food Fazoli version of Asian noodles. We got the spicy basil noodles and it was spicy, but flavorless. The Thai Basil rolls were pretty good though. Wouldn't come back here, but is a good way to get kids or picky eaters introduced to Asian cuisine because it's pretty bland and Americanized.
I'm addicted to Doc Chey's Chicken Massaman! – I have been going to Doc Chey's for years and I absolutely love, love, LOVE the Chicken Massaman! I also love all their tasty appetizers - especially the edamame and shrimp rolls. I always experience GREAT service and the food quality is excellent. I wish that they would open one in the Brookhaven area, but my waist line would probably suffer because I would eat there all the time!
I’m not sure how we got to this place, but I'm glad we did. I had a very great dining experience at Doc Chey's. The food was excellently prepared and the quality of the food also reflects the type of service they provided. Everything was awesome.
A place I couldn't live without – Dear Doc Chey's Pad Thai with Chicken,
I love you. I love you so much. I don't know what I'd do without you. Whenever I am in the mood for Americanized Asian food, which happens quite often, I must have you. You are so good. And I'm sure you're friends are good too, like Japanese Teriyaki Udon or Spicy Szechuan stir-fry. In fact, everytime I come to see you I look at the menu, and I think to myself, "Self, maybe you should try something different this time." But then Self is all like "Screw that. I'll have the pad thai." Self always wins. So I just wanted to let you know that you are delicious and I don't know what I'd do without you.
less than stellar – I went to lunch yesterday (10-6-08) because of the reviews here. This is mediocre food(at best)...not a place for 5 stars...I am not talking about fine dining 5 stars....I am talking about what they do, their specialty is just alright. I had the special Kung Pao...no real flavor except HOT! Kung Pao is a really flavorful dish so I was surprised. I added soy sauce to make it taste like something. My friend had Red Thai curry....I tasted it. It was alright, nothing to write home about. They were very very skimpy with their portions...tons of noodles and rice but not lots of other stuff. We are talking about vegetables here. Not a high food cost and merely a smattering of them. and then to add $1 for chicken and I had maybe 1-1.5 oz is ridiculous. They are making a lot of money on these $10 lunches that fill people up with cheap starch. I think the reason everything has a hot pepper next to it on the menu is so that they can burn out your taste buds so you don't realize you are getting nothing for your lunch dollar. I won't be back.
Yummy! The BEST! – Great food. Their noodle bowls are *huge* and very tasty. I usually end up either splitting a bowl or making multiple meals out of the left-overs! Their lettuce wrap appetizers are absolutely amazing. I?d get those for my whole meal if the rest of their food wasn?t better! They?ve also got some sort of teriyaki seared green beans that we get quite often which are great as well! I?ve been getting the Chey?s Imperial salad which is very yummy, however, I?ve tried their other salads and wasn?t as impressed. I?ve never had a problem with service there, and I really like their patio. Indoor seating may not be ideal for those who are iffy about sitting near strangers ? they?ve got long picnic style tables, so while you won?t be knocking elbows with your new neighbor, you may be sitting closer to them than you would at a restaurant with completely separate tables. I?ve tried a bit of their sake and haven?t ever been too impressed ? go else where for the sake, but stick here for some great food!
Award-winning, Best Noodles, Affordable – Doc Chey's isn't your typical boring mom-n-pop Chinese restaurant. No, no...Doc Chey's is MUCH better than that (and healthier too!). This is the place where I always bring out-of-town friends. Doc Chey's is pan-Asian, so they serve noodles, stirfries and dim sum inspired by mutliple Asian countries. The oversized noodle bowls are what they do best, but I've grown to adore the dim sum menu too (try the Shanghai dumplings!). Dim Sum is around $4 a plate, and entrees are $6-$8, which is a great deal for the portions and quality. They're starting to use more and more organic items too, which is amazing at these prices. This is the orgianal (and best) location, which opened 10 years ago. They're always winning "Best of Atlanta" awards year after year (best pan-asian, best chinese, best cheap eats, etc.), and they have quite the portfolio on their website to prove it. Try one of the green teas from the Tea Bar.
Not Good – Food was typically American-pleasing fare. Very unauthentic Asian food. I would rather get served by an insect ridden Chinese restaurant hole in the wall. At least there they wouldn't pretend to be making something authentic.
I used to love this restaurant – Used to be, this is one of my favorite restaurants. They keep changing their recipes, but not always for the better. They only have deep fried tofu, not good. They do not grill chicken for their dishes anymore, instead the chicken has coating= more fat. Too bad. I hope they change back. Why change when things are good the way it is??? All together, still goood place to eat, but great anymore. :- (
Adequate – Food was satisfactory, but don't waste your money on the teas. I ordered a veggie noodle dish which was low on veggies but very generous with the noodles. The entrees overall appeared to be served in large portions.
