Good lunch buffet, but maybe questionable

The buffet itself was delicious, and it is authentically Chinese. All the waitstaff were fluent in Mandarin. I took my family here when they came to visit me. However, within a few hours, we all got diarrhea. So be careful.

Exceeded my expectations for such a small town. I'm from SF Bay Area, so have been pretty spoiled for options.

Large menu selection and all food was very tasty. Place was busy so we figured that was a good sign. Wasn't expecting to find half-decent Chinese food in a tiny town like Ely, but we were pleasantly surprised. Best to come with a group and order multiple entrees because they don't have many combo options.

Drove from Las Vegas to Ely on a whim to go fishing at Cave Lake. Stayed in town at the bristlecone motel and this Chinese restaurant is a 1.5 min walk away. Place was clean enough and waitresses were nice enough. Food was pretty good, we tried the combo fried rice, orange chicken and moo goo gai pan. Prices were... More

Short review: Good buffet food with good meat. Long review: We were going to go to Margaritas as we have enjoyed eating here in the past. As they were closed, we headed for La Fiesta. It looked a little sketchy from the outside. I went to peek in the windows to see if it looked better inside. As I couldn't... More

This restaurant is just up the hill from the Bristlecone Motel, where we were staying. You'll find the food quite acceptable though there is nothing outstanding. The Twin Wok fills the need when one has been driving for several hundred miles and needs something filling and tasty for the night before getting some sleep. We especially appreciated the restaurant because... More
