What the community has to say about Cheng Heng Restaurant

Information about this business (1)

The first Cambodian restaurant in the Twin Cities, this is a gem waiting to be discovered. For those who have not yet experienced Cambodian cuisine, you are missing something special. Albums featuring colored photographs of most dishes sit on the tables to make ordering easy. Virtually fat free, the cuisine is tangy, fresh and lean. Start with an appetizer of spring rolls stuffed with shrimp,...

A friend and I came here for lunch. We started with the chive cakes. Wow, super yummy! They make me think of steamed/pan fried chive dumplings I've had at dim sum, but on steroids. Definitely...

Had delicious vegetable and tofu curry in tamarind sauce. Great bubble tea for dessert, too. Try the jackfruit or the taro. They're both awesome. This was my 2nd time back because it is affordable, fresh and great tasting. Cool wood carvings but otherwise plain decoration. Service is not fast but very nice and helpful and worth it for the food...

This has been a favorite for many years. I'm so taken with the #28 stir fried rice noodles, I rarely order anything else. Food is always fresh, and the wait staff friendly. Egg rolls, spring rolls, laab salad everything there is delicious. Always busy but you never feel rushed. Owners are very hands on and are there from open to...

They come with a rice vinegar and srirache...

Everything we ate was delicious. The spring rolls, the rice, the salad - everything! The place is clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is easy to get to from the Green Line. The food is so reasonably priced you can't go wrong!

The Taste of Cambodia

Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't be fooled by the modest appearance of this restaurant-it's known by locals and critics alike for having the best Southeast Asian food around. A photo menu is available to help identify Cambodian dishes such as banh cheo (Asian crepes), larb seur (groud beef salad), and loth chha (rolled noodles). -

What to Drink

Don't miss the young coconut--a whole coconut, with the bottom squared off. The top is cut to make a little lid, a straw is inserted and voila. You'll think you're on the Love Boat.
