Lucky Cheng’s Restaurant Review

: A restaurant with drag-queen waiters (or do we call them waitresses)? Okay, Lucky Cheng’s isn't a restaurant to which you'd take your grandmother (there’s a high noise level), but you can have a lot of fun here. In fact, many celebs do. Food-wise, expect dishes ranging from Asian fried chicken wings to pan-seared almond-crusted salmon and a number of desserts.
