I went into this Mongolian restaurant almost by accident. The system of "harvesting" vegetables and meet yourself (raw), and having the cook frying the food in front of you, was different than what I was experienced with from other restaurants. The food tasted good, and was a good experience. The setting is rather simple (at least at Niini time I... More

We were here for the Mongolian barbecue, which is of course a do-it-yourself combination in which you pile high your raw meats, raw veggies and sauces in a bowl and hand it to the chef at the big flat wok/grill who cooks it up in a jiffy and hands it back (in a fresh bowl). It is flavored exactly as... More

Most of the restaurants were closed on Christmas Day so decided on Chinese food. They have Mongolian barbecue on the ground floor and Chinese upstairs, we decided on Chinese. It is lucky we made reservations as the place was extremely busy. The service was slow and lackluster but the food was excellent. The General Tsos chicken and roast Duck were... More

We were dinning at Tony Chengs on Dec 31 2016 when a fire broke out in the kitchen. No one was told to leave and the room was filling with smoke as people got up to leave. The staff stopped people at the door to pay, while the smoke was getting worse and no one from the upstairs were coming... More

A popular place for tourists, not likey the locals. Its very pricey and you stand around waiting alot if a large family gets to the chow line ahead of you. You pick your own ingredients from the buffet bar adding shave portions of frozen eef, pork, lamb or chikn at the end and hand the bowl to a cook who... More

We went to the Mongolian Restaurant on the ground floor for Christmas dinner. The line was short at the grill. The cooks helped with the sauces when asked. Service was good. food was a bit salty. My daughter said that I probably did not sauce the food correctly. I think that the sauces had too much salt! Her food was... More

I have been eating at Tony Cheng's for decades. I go there for the crispy fried beef, my favorite dish at my favorite restaurant. It never disappoints. wish I lived closer so I could visit more often. And the beer was cold and plentiful, the service wonderful.

I had seen this place in past visits, but visited for the first time recently. I was disappointed. There isn't a menu or a price displayed for food. You fill up a bowl of ingredients and a cook prepares the food on a hot grill. My concern came as I saw run-of-the-mill options for food. Then when I asked the... More
