The shrimp were not cleaned and the cheese wontons so hard on the ends they were inedible. The food bar is smaller and a lot of foods dry like the chicken wings we tried to eat. It is a disappointment at best!

I Wanted to take my fiance to a nice Chinese buffet. We've been going to this restaurant for many years (We've come to Wildwood every summer since I was a kid) and have never had a problem. We hadn't even made it to the buffet and were already bombarded by the host asking us for payment. We asked for water... More

I have been a frequent customer of Cheng's ever since they transitioned from The Hunan many years ago to the present all-you-can-eat buffet format that has been in place since 1996. Back in '96, they were in competition with another now long gone local Chinese buffet called The Great Wall (now Tokyo's and under the same parent ownership as Cheng's)... More

We came here because it rained and we were camping. That was in 2009. Since that, every year we return. The food is very tasty and very fresh. A good selection with cheap drinks (which is rare at a buffet). Lots of tasty shrimp dishes along with the classic cantonese food.

Food was typical buffet food, very limited in selections. An older business but clean, service was good they were not pushing us out the door to turn a table which was nice.

Food seems fresh and is replenished often as buffet pans are on the small side. ( I like that ) Not rushed and tables cleared promptly. $9.99 w/$2.00 off $20.00 coupon in local paper.

Besides the general chicken everything else is typical chinese food tasting food. They do not offer many specials and they are not the friendliest but the food is still decent and reliable. But just decent is the key here.

Chengs Chinese Buffet is a small buffet restaurant. There General Tsaos chicken was wonderful and spicy, but I could not find much of anything else that I liked since a lot of the food containers at the buffet were empty.

off the beaten path, hidden in the back of a shopping center, Chengs has good food and a nice variety. It was recommended by our motel
