We had a great time. The food was good. Our only complaint about the food is that you do not have options for the appetizer or dessert. I understand why but we did not eat the dessert because it was made with pineapple. The performance was awesome. Everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly. My daughter had such a wonderful time that she wants to go back next year for her birthday.

Had a fabulous time with my friends and would love to go again. My only comment here would here is to eat before you go there because the portions (while tasty) are not big.

Wow !!!what entertainment the girls are super talented, we laughed the entire show. Paulina you are brilliant the banter with the crowd and heart felt comments regarding their personal journey via open mic which was touching to hear . I would definitely be recommending anyone to attend this. The girls look amazing and are in such good shape, if you like back flips dirty jokes and exceptional performances this place is for you !!

Was somewhat underhwlemed. I thought i would be seeing more of a show. But what u get is the dancers dancing and lip singing through the audience to collect dollars. Theres is no stage and the way the seating is, your back may be facing most of the dancing depending on your seat. Food was passable at best, drinks are way ovwr priced. The only saving thing is the dancers and Mc were fun to watch, but if ur looking for a good value this isnt it. It was worth the experience but wont go back

What a unique and wonder way for a girls night out! Our server, Tiramisu (spelling?), was the best! He was very nice, accommodating and friendly. All of the performers delivered. Our group of 6 had the time of our lives.

We went to celebrate for one of my friend’s bachelorette. My god it was an amazing experience. Full of laughs & great memories that we will carry for years. She absolutely loved it and the group that I was with with said that we NEED to go again. Maybe for a birthday next time. You need to try this at least once !

Undoubtedly one of the funnest dinner or brunch experiences available in NYC and superior to all the other cookie cutter drag-dining establishments that have followed in its footsteps since it’s launch in 1993.

Had an absolutely phenomenal time at Lucky Cheng's! I have now attended the 7PM dinner shows (Friday, Saturday) and the brunch show (Sunday, 3-6PM), and every time exceeded my expectations. The drag queens bring their talent, creativity, and humor to the table, leaving you with a memorable experience! One would think with the focus on the show that the food would be just "ok" but that is not the case! The dinner and the brunch have really excellent menus with something for everyone. The menu was able to adapt on the fly for my vegetarian friend! The Crazy Boozy Brunch offers a $30 price fix, and for an additional $20 you can get the unlimited drinks. I was so grateful for this pricing structure because I came with people who drink and people who don't, and our non-drinking friends were able to enjoy the meal and show without paying for the drinks they were not getting. The waitresses were always topping off our drinks so I thought the price was awesome for what we got! The lovely waitresses got to showcase their talent during the show and it was so much fun to cheer for them after getting to know them at the table. Svetlana Stoli, hostess of Crazy Boozy Brunch on Sunday, showcases a never-ending parade of different outfits and hairstyles, and gives you everything from Broadway showtunes with puppetry to live singing of original parodies of popular songs, to disco numbers with a naughty twist! Special guests make the shows completely different every time. the brunch and dinner shows feature audience participation, in celebration of attendees' birthdays or bachelorette parties. They're the right amount of fun and entertaining! I love coming here and always bring new people and visiting out-of-towners for a wild Only in NYC experience. All generations can have fun here, I brought my mom for Mother's Day and she loved it!

I came to Lucky Chang’s about 20 years ago. I was happy to see some of the original cast of amazing Drag performers. It’s an iconic staple of NYC! I think everyone should experience at least once. Thank you for a great time Lucky Chengs!

Overall we had an absolute blast. Unfortunately, I was stuck sitting in an awkward direction to enjoy most of the show without having to constantly be swinging my head around. The portion sizes were quite small.

Please don’t call this a caberet...it was more of a raunchy lap dance show. Food was terrible and nasty jokes tasteless. The whole thing was demeaning to the trans world.

18 women went for girls night out and here are our comments collectively.
The food was disappointing, the portions were very small. And $13 for a small portion of guacamole is just crazy !! The show was okay but the queens were nice. The location and ambiance is very nice.
at some point when the dessert was served and the show was still going on, half of our long table just collapsed on one side, sending all our drinks and dessert on the floor. Chairs fell with our coats and bags including our phones....sticky stuff on some of our coats, bags and phones. I was surprised to see that it took quite some time for someone to come and take care of us and fix the table etc. Completely distracted us and ruined our fun moods.
Icing on the cake was when they blamed us for the table collapse saying we were banging on the table, we are not bunch of rowdy women -- we all are professionals Dr's, Lawyers and moms. we were screaming and clapping but not banging the table so that the table could collapse.
we were shocked to see the tables were the folding tables and it probably was not clasped properly on one side resulting in the collapse.
they did not offer us any further drinks that were all on the floor but did bring us desserts only after we asked. and only after we made an issue, they give us a 20% discount . They were quite rude about the whole ordeal instead of being nice and apologetic.

Overall I was underwhelmed with my experience at Lucky Cheng's. The food was better than expected but the show was rather bland. I expected it to be more of a rambunctious drag show but the majority of the experience was about the audience members being on stage and reminded me more of a game show. I wouldn't call it a drag show but more of an interactive experience hosted by drags.
