Went to Lucky Cheng's for my birthday weekend. It started off great, the bartenders and performers were wonderful. The food could have been better but was decent. The low rating comes from the waitress that charged 815 dollars of another tables bill and tried to console us with around of shots. When we ask to speak to the manager to resolve the issue we was given the run around. He finally shows up, but not to US the customers but to speak with the waitress. He never comes over to our table to rectify the issue. We finally get up from the table up and go to him and I am trying to be nice and telling him that as a manager you should have come over to the table to handle the situation since we are the customers. He states that he has 600 other patrons to tend to. I tell him that I will be writing a bad review and he states there are a lot of people that will write great reviews about his place. He proceeds to turn and walk away. What kind of managerial skills is that??!! Very unprofessional and I will never recommend this place or go there again.

Re: qdunkins

I'm not going to defend your complaints again Lucky Cheng's, I wasn't there. However, as someone who has worked for tips I am appalled that you think it's acceptable to not tip a waitress because you didn't like the food.

Been here several times and Lips, but this place is just the most fun. I love the Asian food, we always go for either the $36 or $40 menu, and have great steak, salmon, tuna. Don't usually go for the wok items. The ribs are to die for.

First off let me start out by saying that if you come here, invested in great food and a romantic dinner for two, you are in for quite the disappointment. Although it may be fun to go with one or two friends, the "drag queen experience" is best a with large groups.

I went here last week for one of my best friend's birthdays with a group of 25 people. It didn't look like much from the outside, but once we entered the restaurant, the entire place, from the toilet seats to the bars, raved the unorthodox and lively theme.

We were seated instantly and the food came very quickly, considering the size of our party. The portions and quality of the food were decent, definitely not worth $34 a person, but let's face it, we were not there for the five star gourmet meal.

Shorty after the food came, the show began. The performing drag queens spared no vulgar detail and showed sexual restraint very sparingly as one of them stood on both hands, crotch dangling vigorously into my friend's face during a lap dance!

From the singing and comedy to the straight out exotically hilarious lap dances, the show kept all of us reaching for our cameras, forgetting almost entirely about our plates. Towards the end of the show came the part where the guest of honor from each table was pulled out to join the performers and put on a little show of their own. Unfortunately, the birthday girl from my table was a little too uncomfortable for all that. I would've volunteered but they already had two guys.

I left Lucky Cheng's with a full stomach, a full camera, and memories that definitely won't fade any time soon. 5 STARS!

This place was like hilarious, fun and sexy wrapped up in a ball! I went for my girlfriends 25th birthday last night with all our co-workers and it was amazing. When you walk in its like an asian red and black dimmed setting with red and gold round lamps and nice art work on the walls.The drag queens are all dressed up in their cute outfites smiling and greeting as they pass. When the host took us to our seats everything was set up neatly and there were plenty of seats for our large party. Our waitress was Fast, attentive, and funny.The food was delicious and the drinks were big bowls with flames in the middle of them that they called orgy bowls. They also had an amazing ballon guy who cracks jokes and makes penis and vagina ballons..lol.. my favorite was the massage guy who gave the birthday girl a great massage. He was so cute with his dimples. He charged 20 bucks, which is a little steap, but she said it was worth the money. The show was crazy! The asian lady hosting was a riot and the dancers were dressed in the most exotic outfits. They even had a lapdance contest and gave big bowls of alcohol as prizes to the winner. We all stayed for karaoky because we did'nt want to leave. One of the bartenders gave me a CD for gettting on stage with the massage guy who could SING!!. All and All it was a Great time with a fun and talented staff. Im defenitly going back for my birthday!!!!!

I was a bit nervous going here for a few reasons. 1) we were taking my brother-in-law for his 40th birthday as a surprise and I didn't know how he would react and 2) because i read some pretty bad reviews on here. Well I must say that after a few minutes my brother-in-law had a great time and the place was amazing. The entertainment was great and the food was really good. I'm an extremely picky vegetarian and I enjoyed the food so i do not see what anyone can complain about. I wouldn't think twice about going back there. I also read that some people said that the waiters/waitresses were rude but all of them were nothing but friendly to us. We were handed an envelope at towards the end of the show. An announcement was made that it was for tips for the performers. We gave $10 a person which I thought was well deserved.

went to Lucky Chengs on 7/31/10 to celebrate my B-day..we all enjoyed ourselves..You must have a sense of Humor to talk into this place.if you dont stay home!.and you must be ready to hear language you normally dont hear on a day to day basis, But nothing different then going to a comedy show !.As for the food. If you check there web site before making reservations, you will see there menu and how its broken down, so even if you pick the 32.00 menu we which were a group of 9 had enough to eat, and were able to eat a variety of foods.Our Server was Hawaiian he was fun and friendly, ask if we needed change back at the end ! and brought me a free drink. I guess you have to hope you get a friendly server, we noticed some not so friendly with there customers.WE LUCKED OUT! Only down fall was the Massage guy with the 20.00 charge, didnt find him helpful to the show. I would go back again, Minus the massage..Overall we all had a great time..laughed about it the following day..:)

place is a total rip off. be prepared to spend hundreds of dollars.. all they want is your money. they all come over at different times throughout your dinner and request you give them a cash tip. and dont be fooled by the ghetto massage guy who comes over to your table and says here let me give you a massage and when it over demands it was $20... they never gave water to my table and the waitress/waiter was horrible!!!! my suggestion.. go anywhere else!!!!

We had a Bachelorette party this past Saturday night for my sister @ Lucky Chengs. The weather was really bad and we were coming from Long Island. We called to say we would be a little late because of the storm and the person who answered the phone was very rude to us. he told us we needed to hurry or we would lose our time slot. I explained we were caught in traffic, and were on our way.
When we arrived my sister checked in and the same person who answered the phone was a host . He was extremely rude to my sister who's party it was and rude to me. . After making us wait a considerable ammount of time we were sat. Our waitress Bree was very nice and made sure we had a good time. The show was hilarious and my sister was brought onstage to give a lap dance, the guy was kind of old but it was really funny. the drink we had was a big bowl of liquor and we really enjoyed that. The food was also good, and there was a lot of it. The desert was good too. I loved the chocolate cake! All and all we had a fun night, but I don't think I would come back. When I asked who the host was I was told us the host ,John Mark was the manager. I was shocked. Customers should never be talked to or treated that way. I wanted to make a complaint, but my sister Nancy asked me not to. So would have to say I have very mixed feelings about Lucky Chengs.

I went with a couple of my friends and my sister and her friends and we absolutely loved it. This place is amazing.The show is hilarious, entertaining and all the people there are gorgeous. The good food is a plus too. The startender Ms Chi-chi Mayle is gorgeous, friendly and a reason to return. I would defiantly go back again. Good for birthday parties or any celebrations.

Me and my friend share the same birthday and were turning the big 4-0 ! So we wanted to have a blast with about 20 of our friends ! And this was the perfect place to do it. The place was packed, but our waitress made us feel extra special. We got a lap dance and ordered from the amazing list of specialty drinks ! They made us part of the show, which was hysterical. We topped the evening off with an yummy erotic cake. Thanks to all the girls for a great time. We WILL be coming back soon !!

I went back to Lucky Cheng's a few weeks ago, I hadn't been there in about 3 years. It had changed a lot. There were cool paintings on the walls, very pin-up Burlesque. The show was so funny Our hostess Pauline was cracking the best jokes and had GREAT legs! She did acrobatics during her performance it was amazing. The food was also better than I remember, last time it was just ok, this time was MUCH better. I had the sirloin and my friends had chicken and pork, we all shared our entrees. The drinks were very potent, and had funny names like pink pussy, and Anita's poolboy, and were very tasty. The desert was cute too it came out like a sample platter good size portions of different thing...the chocolate ganache cake was really good!!! Overall it was a great night for my friend Caroll's birthday, only thing it was really loud...Bachelorette parties, and pumping music so it's hard to have a conversation, but other than that we had fun...We also loved our bartender She-She...who had a tiny waist, I was kind of jealous!!! Would definately come back maybe on a less busy night. We went on the weekend which they say is super busy, but I would come back maybe for my birthday in June!

Pros: Best "female" in town

.

I have been going to Cheng's since 2004 and I love everything about it! The food is good, the drinks are great, and the staff is so friendly and kind that they make you feel right at home! No matter how busy the bartender in the front, Lailah, is she still tries to have conversations with her patrons and make them feel welcomed. The waitresses are great too, especially Ruby, who takes pains to make sure you're satisfied with the service and the food.

The shows are entertaining and the atmosphere is just relaxed and fun. Every time someone from out of town visits me, it's the first place I take them. I absolutely love Cheng's!

Cons: None!

Great place to take friends out and WOW them with dinner and a show, plus there's a balloon artist that makes erotic balloon hats, and not to mention the Dragbox (Girls) giving some of the funniest lap dances ever, you can order it through your waitress, and even request to have it Mild, or Spicy...

I think there are more Bachelorettes here then at that Bridal Gown Sale at Filenes Basement every year...

The waitstaff here are GORGEOUS!
You have a hard time believing that they are really men!

I've been here many times and I must say that the food has improved ,although I did hear that they just hired a new chef! If you go with a large group, select the Asian Feast 2 or 3. You get a larger selection of food choices so EVERYONE in your party will find something that agrees with them. Cocktails here are quite tasty and POTENT! You don't taste the alcohol but BOY DO YOU FEEL THE EFFECTS THE NEXT DAY! LOL! Getting a large orgy bowl of pink pussy is a fun way to start the evening and tell your friends the next day that you shared pussy last night with your girlfriends.

Read that Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper were both here recently.

This place has a lot of female clientele versus men so there was a long line to the bathroom. Single guys will have a field day here! LOL!

After the dinner hour karaoke starts.

Overall this place is very fun and entertaining. When in NYC be sure to make a stop here.

Pros: Great Show, Sexy Staff, and Lots of Laughs...

Cons: That I couldn't work here...

Fun place with surprisingly good food and drinks!
The flaming orgy bowl is pretty popular here with the "pink pussy" the most ordered cocktail.

Our stunning waitress Tora is really knowledgeable about the food and helped us with our ordering. Some of us were allergic to peanuts and she made a trip to the kitchen to make sure that the dishes we ordered didn't have nuts. Her joke that "The only nuts in here are the ones working on the floor and your waitress is sure to have two!" cracked us up! She is a sure delight! Gretchen, our cocktail waitress is just as funny..
The show was entertaining and amusing with Japanese Bitch and Tiara singing and dancing in beautiful costumes. A lot of women in this place. Not too many guys but the guys that were here dining were soon brought up on stage to help entertain the ladies.
Note to self: bring some guys here to put into the show! LOL!
Lots of bachelorettes here and birthday parties. Great idea!
Next time I'm going to bring my company here, get my boss on stage, and take pictures so that I can have some leverage to get a raise! LOL!

We didn't stay for karaoke which is after the show since we have to work the next day but perhaps next time...

You really have to check this place out with an open mind. Not really suitable for children, prudes, or the faint at heart. :)
For around $50 per person, a 3 course dinner and a show is really not bad!

Thanks girls for a wonderful evening!

Pros: Very fun place with good food and beautiful "girls"

My friend just turned 21 and had just moved to NYC. So we wanted to take her to the legendary Lucky Cheng's to introduce her to NYC at it's craziest and most fun. All my friends had been there before, but I hadn't been there in close to five or six years. I was happy to find it still had that amazing energy I remembered so distinctly. And the food was better than I remembered. My waitress was super friendly and made our "virgin" guest feel extra special. It took a little while for her to loosen up, but after a few delicious drinks and getting into the really fun show , she was on her chair dancing and cheering. We even made another reservation for her parents who were coming into town next week. This is definitely the place for FUN, FUN, FUN !

We wanted to celebrate my best friends last night of freedom. And another friend said Lucky Cheng's is the best place for a bachelorette party , having been to several at their venue. It was everything she raved about. The atmosphere was circus-like, from the erotic balloon man to the hysterical hostess for the evening, we were totally entertained. Be sure to order an erotic cake and get a lap dance !! Between the potent cocktails and the bartender Annida Greenkard we couldn't stop laughing - or drinking. Our friend cursed us for the hangover the next day, but couldn't thank us enough for a night she will never forget !! Thanks to all the "girls" who made it so much fun !

We came here for a birthday party for a co-worker the other evening. Food was delicious - Asian/American with great ribs, girls terrific and funny/funny/funny!!, show amazing, but the best part was the audience participation. We got our straight friend up in a cross dressing contest and he won. Made a total fool of himself in front of the entire office. Thank god for alcohol. Then we stayed for karaoke until way too late. The following day at work, we laughed to tears, but all complaining about our hangovers.

We went to Lucky Chengs in NYC for my friends Bachelorette Party and it was the biggest waste of money. We got there and from the start the people working there were rude and obnoxious. I didn't know someone could curse so much in a matter of 30 minutes. The place was dirty and we were afraid to even touch anything. We weren't able to order our own meals, we all had to order family style but still pay $32.00 per person. The worst part was that they don't give you enough food for everyone in your party. Then we all got sick from eating their terrible food. The "show" if that's what you'd like to call it was horrible. It lasted all of a half an hour and it was boring and not all at what we expected. At the end of the show we were instructed to give the people a tip because they gave us a show. Umm........I thought that's what the fee for the show was for. The bill came and I gave them the money but was due back some change. Well, apparently they don't believe in giving change at Lucky Chengs so they just never came back and chose to ignore me when I asked about my money. When the show was over we were all left feeling disappointed and hoping we could get back that last hour.
There are so many other places in NYC to celebrate special events. Do yourself a favor and do not go to Lucky Chengs, spend your money somewhere else.

My girlfriends brought me here for my bachelorette party and I can't tell you how much fun we had. The entertainers are fantastic and get the audience to be a part of the fun. The food is overly priced though and definitely not vegetarian friendly. But like the last reviewer said - you're not there for the food. Lots of fun - a great place to celebrate a bachelor/bachelorette party!

I came to celebrate my 30th birthday with a group of friends and had the time of my life. I highly recommend this spot if you want an unforgettable night of the wild kind. The atmosphere was so high energy and glamorous. That and the potent drinks put us in the mood for an outrageous night ahead. The food was good, but the best part was the show. The costumes and performances were amazing. A gorgeous Asian performer named Tiara dazzled. And Paulina (the Princess of power) was hysterical. The Chocolate shoe was a yummy rich dessert that topped off the evening...highly recommend it !

I wasn't expecting to laugh as hard as we did. Had expected it to be cheesy, like Chucky Cheese's for bachlorettes, but my god, the show was hysterical. The food was good, we got the expensive menu and it was delicious., and not bad at $40 per person. Drinks were great, we went with the volcano bowls which ended up being a great deal. Lucky we all made it home alive. My eyes were so red from either the hangover or from laughing, I had to run out for Visine!!! If considering a bachlorette party, OH MY GOD!!!!!!

We went to a Bachelorette Party there and had the best time. The entertainment is fantastic, and the environment leads to a great time. A fun place for large parties and they actually (surprisingly) have pretty decent food for this kind of place. They even provided a fun and risque cake for the bride-to-be. Loads of fun!

Editorial from

A restaurant with a kitschy Asian decor and Asian drag-queen waiters (or do we call them waitresses)? Okay, Lucky Cheng's isn't a restaurant to which you'd take your grandmother (there's a high noise level), but you can have a lot of fun…

 

Wait, you're the expert.
