Enjoyable Chinese

Enjoyed our visit to Chengs. Service was very good and friendly. Soup was good and spicy. The salted prawns were good but shouldn't they be shelled? The duck was good. The mains were nice and tasty.

We looked around for quite a long time before finding a good Chinese restaurant in Whitley Bay. Chengs is the best we've found and our regular go-to place both for sit-down meals and take away. Pleasant staff and a good atmosphere.

Everything was beautifully presented and tasted really good. The service was excellent throughout the evening and although the restaurant was not full we never felt pressurised to finish our meal quickly. In fact we... More

Was in the mood for a Chinese meal last week, and thought I would visit Chengs after consulting the reviews on TripAdvisor. The food itself was OK, if a little salty. However, I had an ice-cream for dessert, and it was full of icy lumps, as if it had been thawed and frozen again a few times. There was a... More

First time I had used Chengs for a meal as my normal Chinese takeaway was closed for holidays. I was impressed with what we ordered and really enjoyed the food. The only downside is that they don't deliver so I had to collect it.

Have been several times, love the banquets. Have also arranged a large party in the past that went really well. Staff are lovely and the food is amazing. Can't wait to go back.
