Service was fast; food was great. Green beans with garlic sauce, orange chicken, and a combination dish with shrimp, beef, and chicken were fresh, well seasoned, and very tasty.

Our summer travels had us staying an evening in Ely, NV and though the town itself was nothing to write home about our dinner at Twin Wok certainly was. We wanted something different than burgers or Mexican and after reading through the positive reviews about Twin Wok we decided Chinese it was. This unassuming restaurant sits conveniently along Route 50... More

Ate here while staying at La Quinta. It close enough to walk, abbot you have to cross the street which is wide and somewhat busy. But straight enough to see a good way! We ate Hot and Sour Soup and a dish called Happy Family a mix of beef chicken and shrimp with veggies. Our service was a little slow,... More

Read reviews and decided to go. Staying at motel 6 with a parked RV, we had to walk. Short walk. The food was fresh, tasted so good, and portions huge. We decided instead of the combo dinner, to get individual entries and share. Sweet & sour chicken, shrimp with lobster sauce, chicken lo mein, ALL delish, fresh and ended up... More

I went to the Twin Wok with trepidation since I am Chinese-American and very seldom find decent Chinese food outside of Chinese communities. I was extremely pleased that Twin Wok had good "old school" Chinese food with good sauces, great seasoning, and plentiful portions. They were even accommodating enough to pan fry and sear the chow mien noodle - something... More

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. Is it the BEST Chinese food I have ever had? No, not by a long shot. But for American style Chinese food this... More

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.
