Rip off avoid
Feb 2020 • Friends
This is a total rip off for rube tourists. now having said that you may be asking why would a New Yorker go here? peer pressure from friends who’d never been.

I went to Lucky Cheng‘s about 12 years ago when it was still on the lower East side. It was dark and dingy, the food inedible but at least it seemed like an authentic experience. this garbage? I felt like I was on a budget cruise ship. the venue is hideous, tired lame and sad like a conference room that a nursing home might decorate for one of the residents’ birthdays. I understand now why they relocated this dump to Siberia on 11th Ave. they need to go ahead and just relocate to jersey.

We were wise enough to avoid eating and just got the 2 drink min. When we arrived the hostess only glanced at one of our tickets (purchased through an app) meaning the rest of us could’ve easily gotten in for free which is about what this is worth. I noticed two of the queens had ripped stockings. Now when you can’t even afford stockings that aren’t ripped that is a sad spectacle indeed. they couldn’t even lip-synch properly. if you wanna see drag do you yourself a favor do some research and go to a show that’s actually good. Or better yet go to a broadway show. This tripe needs to be put out of its misery.

Omg amazing talented Drag Queens
Oct 2019
This was on of the best drag shows I've ever seen. Paulina entertained the crowd with her open mic wit and banter. I've never seen such fit fun and flexible Drag acts. The girls were so interactive funny, the whole place was buzzing. These girls can flip and do the splits!!!The food was actually tasty so this was a bonus.
One of my best memories of our honeymoon trip to NY city. I highly recommend going here.

Great Birthday Night!
Mar 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and it was so fabulous! They seem to specialize in birthday and bachelorette parties, but it's really fun for all. The 3-course meal was surprisingly delicious. I only say surprisingly because I wasn't expecting a tasty salmon dish from a Drag place. I stand corrected. The salmon and Brussel sprouts was delicious. And the "orgy bowls" are full of booze. We had two and we were flying high by the end of the night. Our waitress Detoxx was amazing!

Great night out!
Feb 2019 • Friends
Absolutely loved this place, me and my sister were on holiday from Scotland and thought it was amazing! Paulina really knows how to get the crowd going and the queens are all so talented. Also want to say that Tara-misu (sorry if that's wrong) was really lovely and made my sister who was a tiny bit nervous feel super comfortable :)

It.was a night we won’t forget... the ladies and staff were great, funny, attentive and beautiful. The food was good. We ordered the burger and carbonara. The show was exciting. I would’ve like to have seen some bigger name stars, like Raja, Bianca del Rio, Bob the drag queen any one really who’s been on TV. All in all, so glad we went. Great show, lots of laughs and lots of pics.

A MUST DO!!
Sep 2018 • Friends
I rate this highly! I had such an enjoyable time here 😂. I’ve seen a few drag shows but this one took the cake! Matter a fact it took the bakery shop 😂. The queens are extremely entertaining and highly talented.

Like I said this is a MUsT do

Fantastic night out!
Jul 2018 • Couples
We loved our night out here. Food was delicious!
They really take care of you if you are celebrating, whether it’s a birthday or bachelorette party.
We haven’t laughed so much in a long time. The only downside was at the end of the night when we got the check for 5 people $488!!! But we’re not used to NYC prices. We had 2 bottles of wine and 2 beers with dinner, they also automatically added a $75 tip! It was worth it for dinner and a great show though! Afterwards you can dance upstairs at the rooftop bar Cantina, best night out!

Disappointed
Feb 2018 • Friends
Lucky for Cheng’s not for me. My rating is not based on a visit that won’t and never happened, but on their customer service. I had a confirmed reservation for Friday 3/2 for weeks and was notified two days prior that the restaurant had been now committed to a wedding. I have people coming in from the Midwest that we’re looking forward to the and show and now no plans. Luckily for us, a similar venue was bookable last minute (Lips). Shame on you Lucky Cheng’s.

Tragic, has seen better days.

Don’t waste your money. Sad old queens, bad lip sync, dancing, food and drinks. At $55 per person for the prix fixe menu, it is a complete ripoff.

It made me appreciate even more talents like Randy Roberts and Christopher Peterson. Go see them if you want a real show.

Sad Queens; and for the $225 dollars we could have seen Kinky boots.
Nov 2017 • Couples
This had to be the worst drag queen show we have ever seen. We should have read the reviews on here before going. They had technical difficulties starting the show, so it started 45 minuets late which turned out to be a blessing because it shortened the misery. We are not a fan of lip synced shows and they proved why.

None of them could lip sync or dance. It was like watching a badly dubbed foreign movie; not one of the performers matched the music track. One while attempting a cartwheel, crashed to the floor, thank god they weren’t hurt. There was no talent here. The queens in Key West and P Town put them to shame. Go see them if you want to see real talent; they can actually sing and dance.

The food was just as bad, a street vendor would have been better. The drinks run 14 bucks each and dated and week. It was like a bar menu from an 70’s Florida resort. We would have walked out if we could. And since they automatically ad the gratuity, you can’t even voice your disappointment.
