From the outside, Cheng's Kitchen doesn’t look like much; crammed in between a dry cleaning shop and a pizza parlor, this North Providence dining destination could be any other hole in the wall. There’s only one table on the inside, but it’s rarely occupied — and for good reason: Cheng's is take-out only.
Regulars report that the General Tso’s chicken might just be some of the best you’ll ever have, fried to crisp perfection and topped with a sauce equal parts sweet and spicy. The sweet and sour chicken is also top of the line. Most entrees come with a free eggroll, and this ubiquitous treat is said to be very well done here. The steamed dumplings are also held in high regard. Portion sizes are reportedly quite large, and prices are very low.
