We were traveling from Yellowstone to Tahoe and spend one night at Elko, Nevada. After checked the TripAdvisor for local Restaurant, we decided to visit Chef Cheng's for dinner, we ordered the Chicken with Black Bean Sauce and Seafood Hot Pot and both of the dishes were delicious. Presentation and portion were very good. Service are excellent as well. We... More

I was a little disappointed by the staff, trying to rush things, and then they forgot to bring the soup before the main dish. The presentation was poor, the taste was alright and it was served hot. I think it would have been better served with the rice on the hot platter and your entree poured over the rice, rather... More

This place was a surprising find. Good Chinese food, good service and great prices in a small town. Staff was friendly, portions were large and meal was tasty. Seating was dated.

I love eating here when I travel to Elko for business. The food is tasty and the portions are large. I made the mistake of trying another Chinese restaurant in the area and I won't do that again.

The dish I ordered, lo mein, was delicious to my standards. I'm Asian, born and raised in S.F. so I've had the best Chinese food outside of China I suspect. This dish at Chef Cheng's in Elko is better than I can find anywhere in Reno. I was just driving thru on my way to Salt Lake City or I'd... More

Have eaten at Chef Cheng's many times but tonight we had an order to go. While waiting we were asked if we wanted something to drink and they brought us some of the fried noodles with sweet and sour sauce to have while we waited. They were so kind - the food we took home was GREAT and we will... More

I've eaten Chinese just about everywhere I have visited when traveling. Chef Cheng's is worth writing a review about unlike some I would just as soon forget. I had the War Won Ton soup and Szechuan Chicken. I had the best War Won Tpon Soup ever in Sacramento, California, and frankly, Chef Cheng's was the equal. The Szechuan Chicken was... More

While passing through Elko Nevada and spending the night we wanted to find a place where the locals eat. We had the crab rangoon which was 8 prepared and was very fresh compared to other places we ate at. We had egg drop soup. Walnut shrimp which was OMG better than any place we ate. Christy flavorful outer coating with... More
