We must have found the other Twin Wok in a parallel universe because this one did not fit the glowing reviews we read on TA. The place is run down, no AC (or it was broke) so the doors were wide open in the 100 deg. heat. The tables and chairs needed some help, our table looked like an earthquake... More

Oh my, large platters of Shrimp Egg Foo Young and Cashew Chicken arrived with a "barrel" of rice. Spicy dishes are included on the menu, but we passed them this time. A convention in town made the place busy, so service was slow. Each dish Seemed made to order not slapped together.

Chinese in rural Nevada? Sometimes it can be one of the best choices. This definately holds true for dining out in Ely. There are not a lot of choices, but this ended up being a good one.

Quick service and good food. So good that I ate it for dinner, then leftovers for lunch the next day, and then ordered again for dinner the next night.

Most Chinese buffets in America are carbon copies of one another. You won't find any surprises at the Twin Wok --- but that's a good thing. The selection is a bit low, but the quality is excellent, the price is good, and the restaurant is easily accessed.

Twin Wok was a nice find in the small town of Ely. The service was excellent, and the food quality very good. We had the cashew shrimp and orange chicken with fried rice, wantons, and egg rolls. All of the entries were excellent without any MSG.

The staff were certainly quick and it felt that we needed to eat in a hurry. It was the nearest place to eat after a drive from Salt Lake City. The food was edible and did not give me or my wife an upset stomach. That is as much as I can say about the culinary experience.

If you're staying at the Ramada in Ely, this Chinese restaurant is just a short walk away. Friendly staff; quick service. Food is typical Chinese restaurant quality. No complaints.
