The sweet and sour chicken or shrimp are fantastic! The egg drop soup is good as well. The fried rice is very good and everything is pretty reasonably priced for a more upper level restaurant.

Great restaurant and food. Nice ambiance and huge menu. My wife order something a little too spicy for her taste and the waiter exchanged with no problem. Nice full bar. Good location not far from the mall.

We had a great experience with both service and quality of food. General Tso's tofu was tasty as was kids lo mein. Perfect Match also delicious. Waitress said would be introducing a vegan menu in the spring.

Finally, we experienced a very good Chinese meal after a few disappointments elsewhere. Cheng's China Bistro offered a large selection on both their lunch and dinner menus. The flavorful hot and sour soup arrived shorty after placing our orders. Our main courses were delivered hot from the kitchen and were very well prepared and beautifully presented on the plate.

We had dinner here on a Friday night when all of the surrounding restaurants had a wait and this place was empty. Never a good sign. The décor was nice, the service was great and the place looked clean. We had fried dumplings which were very good. Our entrees were just OK and lacked flavor and had no heat even... More

My experience was very upsetting, i was seated for ten minutes without being ask to order. In the meantime the waiters were asking everyone else if they were OK. I quickly realized i am not the kind of customers they want in their restaurant, i went to the manager and her only response was oh they forgot. Is this a... More

Went for lunch today... Our server was a young man who was having a lot of trouble understanding English. Two tables that were near us were having the same issue we were having. He got 3 of our orders wrong (out of 4). He ran around exasperated the entire time we were there. He created a stressful experience. When we... More

This is one of the few Chinese restaurants inTyler that is not a buffet. You can actually order one dish and a alcoholic beverage. The food is good but nothing special. At least you don't have to worry about people coughing on your food. Waitstaff tries hard and are friendly.
