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.

My fiance, his son and I just ate here for lunch. I have to say I'm fairly disappointed. Our waitress rarely spoke to us. Our appetizer came out after we got our meals. The rice my fiance got was very dry. My chicken was okay but I've certainly had better. The worst part is the prices. For a child's plate... More

Cheng's is my favorite Chinese restaurant in Tyler! The lunch specials are priced really well and the food is great! The hot n sour soup is crazy good! I go out of my way just for the soup, and everything else is a bonus. Service is good & fast.
