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 your ass off while your 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!

Brilliant! I'd heard a lot of stories about crazy nights with lap dancing drag queens and unsuspecting brides to be! We went for my friends Bachelorette Party and had a total blast! Our food came out on platters so we got to try everything, I loved the honey chicken and pad thai! Cocktails were divine and our waitress was absolutely fabulous! The penis cake topped it all off! Can't say enough, loved it, going back!

Fun fun fun place but I definitely believe my waitress has something to do with it. We had a choice of going to other places but decided to go here. Pretty chaotic but that was kind of what made it different. I will add that this place is not for everyone but we were a bunch of adults so it was what it was. Food took a bit long time but we were having fun and didnt want to get kicked out so it was fine. Again not for everyone. Just try it!

I went to Lucky Cheng's for an early birthday celebration and I had a fantastic time!!! We were taken care of by the bartender while we waited for our table, we drank drinks with names like Paulina's Pink Pussy, and Annida's Poolboy. If you are: a prude, looking for something more high end, boring, shy, don't like being touched inappropriately by strangers or don't like to be loud and crazy,then DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE!! If you are none of the above, YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME!! The queens are loud, raunchy, and have better bodies than most of the women who came in. The food was better than I expected so that was a plus and my Penis cake was HUGE and delicious, and as the cake was inscribed "The Best Is Yet To Cum!" If you decide to visit Lucky Cheng's, go with an open mind and the willingness to laugh, get crazy and yell to your hearts content. Oh yeah, get the ORGY BOWL!!!

The first fifteen minutes of my Saturday night at Lucky Cheng's involved both watching our party's bride-to-be give a half-naked straight man a wild lap dance to win a drink called the Pink Pussy and getting flashed by a poorly dressed singing transvestite (because a bridesmaid slipped him a ten on her way to the bathroom). The bride and her mother are rather conservative, so I was worried, but we arrived already tipsy, ready to don our penis-shaped balloon hats and celebrate. Be prepared, however, for somewhat shocking vulgarity (think Margaret Cho levels). I did not expect much from the poorly-reviewed food, but it was tasty, if not memorable (though how high were my standards after four drinks and no dinner?). Almost every menu item has an additional charge, so the price quickly climbs above the promised $32. I recommend finishing the night off with Imelda's Shoe (life-sized and chocolate). While this isn't a restaurant you'd visit regularly, it was perfect for our bachelorette party. *** NOTE: Drinks are expensive, so hit another bar first to liquor up and lower inhibitions. ***

  • No, I would not go back!

The overall excitement of this expierience has come and gone . This is due to the loss of some of the fabulous gals that have shined in only the way a true cheng girl can. Its like going to what was a hit Broadway show years later when the award winning cast has gone. Still an experience if you haven't Gone.
