“Take a look around!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

What a lovely place this was to have dinner. We almost went next door for Pho but glad we came here instead. First of all walking in you enjoy the delightful koi fish pond and then your eyes are drawn to the colors on the wall where the paper dragon is hanging. The plants are real so it's inviting and the purple napkins brighten the atmosphere as well. So much to look at and it continues with the menu. Lots of choices, more than the average Chinese restaurant. I ordered filet mignon cut into little pieces with a sauce and vegetables, steamed rice. We had fried shrimp, pork slices on skewers with fried rice and a Shiraz as well as hot tea. What a meal, not just food on a plate but my plate was decorated with an orchid and greens arranged all around the plate! What a surprise. I loved this restaurant! Only thing I would have changed were the 3 people on the next table, they had a rude, rowdy kid and no one made him sit quietly. The uncle was just as bad. But this place had gracious servers and pleasant people all around. Thank you for my meal, walked out with a flower in my hair!

“Good Chinese Food and Live Entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

The food is consistently good for the Americanized Chinese menu and they often have someone at the piano to create an soothing atmosphere. It even has a coy pond with a little waterfall.

“Very good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We've been getting take out from Cheng's for over 15 years. Very reliable, consistent food. Not inexpensive, but it's always been high quality. We eat at the restaurant about 4 times per year. Same wait staff forever, very attentive. I think the restaurant could use some updating.

“Used to Be the Best... Not Anymore”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

This was my favorite Chinese food place of all time but the last two times the food quality has dropped and there is a tired feeling in the air. The Kung Pao chicken just didn't measure up and the hot and sour soup was not up to standards. Very sad when a great restaurant has to die a slow death like this one is doing.

“Bugs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

Went to restroom and saw a myriad of bugs not only in the restrooms, but also in the hallway leading to the kitchen. Got up and left. Place is just downright dirty.
