I wouldn't recommend this place. Sad, because I had a friend fly in for a visit and having dinner & a show @ Cheng's was the grand finale. Menu items are not ala carte. It's $32 pp and 90% of the items have an upcharge of $2-20 each. The food was ok. There were a whopping 3 Drag Queens the night we went. 2 hostesses and 1 performer who did 2 songs, a game w/the audience and 1 lap dance on someone who was unwilling to go along w/it. After her routine she sent envelopes around for a tip! I suppose since the crowd was mostly 18yrs old she didn't get enough $$ so she said there would be a break and then we would do Karaoke. Well, that never happened. The total for 2 people w/ tip (which they include) was $122.80! For Chinese takeout and a small cocktail that was $8. I was disappointed.

My friend and I thought it was below our standards. The food was subpar so stick to the appetizers, and the entertainment was uninspiring. Would not visit again .

I expected a Drag show, but not like this! This restaurant is definitelyy not for the prude. Open minded people welcome. The waitress staff were great performers, not great servers. The food was ok, but from all the laughing I did, I didn't eat much anyway. The drinks were expensive for the tiny juice glass that they serve them in and the bill at the end is huge! If your looking for a fun expirence in New York, you have to go check this place out.

I had a fun bachelorette party here. The food was surprisingly not bad, actually good (although not great). The drag queens were hysterical. However, we were put all the way to the back, so we couldn't see the show.

I never reviewed this place before, but upon seeing positive reviews, I wanted to put in my 2 cents, as a restaurant-loving New Yorker: Lucky Cheng's is not a good experience. I have been there several times for "birthday dinners" (meaning, I had to go), and every time the food was poor, the communal drinks were gross -- as fun as sharing a giant margarita class filled with Hi-C and vodka with 8 other people is -- and I ended up footing a portion of some insanely large bill. Yes, the drag queens are amusing and making the birthday girl/gay guy go up to participate in some competition is hilarious, for about 1 minute. This is new york -- seeing men acting like flamboyant women can be done for free by simply going around the block to Opaline. And paying $20 for "pad thai" that is actually a greasy version of lo mein is inexcuseable in a town like this.

This place is an adult version of the birthday parties you used to have as a kid! The clown is replaced by a colorful drag queen named Miss Understood, the magician is replaced by a hunky balloon guy making X-rated balloon sculptures, and all those cheek pinching annoying Aunts are replaced by cheek pinching wacky drag queen waitresses! A VERY surreal experience! Seems like every bachelorette and birthday girl throws their parties here. Food is ok but forgettable after you've had a cocktail or two in a large orgy bowl. The waitresses are pretty and sometimes do a spontaneous act with each other. Watch out for the lap dancers that seem to pull every celebrant up to the stage for an embarassing time. They have male strippers here too! Fun place but not for kids nor for the faint of heart.

What a spectacular way to start a night! Went as a large group of ladies for a bachelorette party and couldn't have asked for more! The food wasn't great, but where they lacked in that arena, they more than made up for in entertainment! The chocolate shoe filled with mousse was spectacular - the Orgy bowls a must-have. Ruby was a great waitress and everyone was friendly! Will definitely visit again for special occassions.
