This restaurant constantly serves flavoursome genuine Chinese food. We have been coming here for 11 years and have never had a bad meal. We have found the food to be much better than the restaurants in China town Newcastle. The salt and chilli ribs are amazing, duck pancakes and all the different dishes we have had over the years have... More

Just moved to WB and choose Cheng's based on reviews. I'm not a big fan of Chinese food so I always have the curry. This is the best in a long time. A little expensive but a very nice restaurant with great service.

First time at Chengs last night and very glad we went! Chengs does not look like much from the outside, and the looming fat bhudda on the inside opposite the reception counter is a bit disquieting, but the restuarant itself is very comfortable. The service was excellent and delivered with a smile. As for the food, it was extremely good.... More

My boyfriend and I visited Chengs restaurant. He had been before, but it was my first time. Staff were very kind and helpful. The restaurant was modern and clean inside, also well presented. The food was delicious, however the dishes that we were given to eat out of were tiny and it meant after 2 mouthfuls you would have to... More

I visit twice a year with friends and we normally book the upstairs room. In all the times I have been I have never had a bad meal nor left hungry. Portions are plentiful and the food very tasty. My favourite being the salt & chilli ribs.

5 of us ate here again last night & again the food was great with an excellent service to match. I still think this is one of the best restaurants in Whitley Bay. it was a Tuesday night & when four or more people eat a banquet, one eats for free which I thought was fabulous value. Thoroughly recommended &... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal - just couldn't fault it and I am very choosy. The atmosphere was great and the staff could not be more friendly. Would I recommend this restaurant? Definitely. Looking forward to going again

Food good - service good, have visited Chengs on many occasions and never had a grumble. However it is now apparent that Chengs has a 2 out of 5 rating for hygiene 0- I'm shocked that such a good restaurant can skimp on the basic requirements. I won't be back until Chengs gain a 5 rating. 2 rating = necessary... More
