I have visited Chinese Restaurants throughout Nevada. My main go-to is Pork Fried Rice. IMO, the best Pork Fried Rice in Nevada is Chef Cheng's. Nothing fancy but the flavor & the way it is prepared cannot be beat. The type of cooking oil they...More

This is not the nicest decoration plan you'll ever see- old, used, drab, a bit thread bare. HOWEVER, the food and service is very good.Standard Chinese/ American fare, but done well. Had orange beef and fried rice- all excellent. The soups were also very good....More

Authentic, wonderfully prepared Chinese cuisine! We had hot & sour soup, minced chicken lettuce cups, honey walnut prawns, eggplant, bok choy with black mushrooms, and were delighted with everything. The huge quantities served were a surprise, so we enjoyed the leftovers for lunch in the...More
