I visited Lucky Cheng’s a few weeks ago after it was recommended to me by my friend’s sister. Let me start off with the good. The staff is great and so kind. I loved my server and the additional staff (coat check, balloon guy and bartender). Also, the show is entertaining and the performers are true artists. Now onto the not so good: the food. I ordered the Vietnamese Salad which had no taste to it and the BBQ chicken entrée tastes like a reject piece from Boston Market. Furthermore, the restaurant charges extra for most items, so the $36 you pay only gets you so much food. Second, the show is not great. There is no stage, so the performers wander the restaurant. I was seated in the back and missed everything that happened at the front of the restaurant as a result. Also, I thought the show would last an hour, when is reality it was more like fifteen minutes. What I saw was great, but certainly not worth the price I paid. Even my friend from out of town was not impressed.

Lucky Cheng's was the BEST restaurant/club/bar I have ever been to and I've been bartending for over 20 years. If you want to laugh while eating delicious food this is the place you want to be. The staff is amazing, they were so on point for the entire night, they never broke character once. They are so funny and nice at the same time that you want them to insult you. I haven't laughed that much in years. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious, I recommend the Thai Marinated Beef and Fried Basil Appetizer, incredible! I could go on and on but I'll just say, you don't want to miss this experience! PS- This is from 5 women out for a Birthday Party!

Decided to try something different for Halloween. I could not believe how good the food and service was, very attentive and yummy. But the show was just awesome, awesome. There were two Asian girls with costumes and feathers galore. There was another who on the mike who was sarcastic, did cartwheels (really) and had the whole crowd going. I was happy because I won the contest!!! Be careful if you have work in the morning,..., that's the real downside. LOL

I guess this is the place to go for bachelorette parties... for people not from NYC. I would never have chosen a place that charges $32-$36 a person for the incredibly low-quality scraps that you can manage to pick off the platters that they try and get on and off your table as quickly as possible, so that you can watch a trannie who turns out to be an "independent contractor". meaning you have to tip even more. I think the dinner ended up costing about $80, and we left hungry, sober, and anxious for something interesting to do.

Hadn't been for 10 years. Went for my 40th decade party reunion and I could not believe how good the food was, but the most amazing was the new show. They have 2 drag queens from Singapore, Max and Terry (???, they were hard to understand which made the show even funnier) with Asian costumes and dances you can't believe. There is another hysterical drag queen who mc's and does some numbers also. We were in stitches and the production quality quite good. But still, AMAZING, AMAZING. Never seen a drag show quite like this before. Not going wait until I'm 50 to go back.

I was part of a group of 15 for a bachlorette party. We waited more than an hour and a half for our food. The soda they served us was beyond flat, it didnt even taste like soda. Food wasnt close to good every platter tasted bland. For $32 you dont even get your own plate you get a skimpy platter thats not enough. We left hungry from this place. Regretfully I have nothing good to say about this place.

I'm a native NYer nd have seen my fair share of tranny shows, so when a friend planned a bachelorette party here I was actually excited. Much to my disappointment, there was not one attractive tranny in the place (by girl or boy standards), and they were extremely rude, on purpose. So all of this was even more disturbing when we were forced to watch a washed-up tranny slap its thighs against bride-to-be after bride-to-be's head. So the show itself was borderline traumatic. The food is another story. We had the 32/head family style for 11 ppl which was about enough food for 6-8 ppl, and it was not good. I think I had one sliver of beef and some cold sticky rice, and a really, really fried wonton. TIP: Be very drunk when you arrive, and these things probably won't bother you. I do agree with the other reviewers - the balloon guy was fun/attractive!
