Avoid. They never actually made my deliveey. After 1.5 hours i called and cancelled. After they hung up on me. Lady was telling me they were around the corner for 40 minutes. Plus they have a hidden 6 dollar delivery fee. Buyer beware.

Pretty good, just what me and baby needed. The egg foo yung is delicious with the brown gravy!

Always pretty tasty food. Fast service and nice family run business. The prices are reasonable especially compared to all other restaurants.

The delivery drivers park right in front of the store including illegally blocking the handicap parking spot. The crab Rangoon was not fresh and tasted of old fryer oil. I will probably not return to this location.

I used to get chengs all the time. It had been about 6 months since i had it so i got some beef with mushrooms last night. I woke up at 4am puking and again at 6am. I feel like death. Probably never going back.

absolutely horrible service. the manager here doesn't respect her customers whatsoever. my fiancé and i ordered food from this place, they forgot our egg rolls, rice, and a whole meal! our food was easily several days old, the chicken was hard as a rock and chewy, the crab rangoons had absolutely no filling inside, pure shell. sweet and sour sauce was con-jelled, so thick and nasty. we called the store and the manager had the audacity to hang up on us when we requested a refund due to poor quality of service and food. went up to the restaurant and they refused to give us our refund, they said they didn't have to money to give us. we ordered off their website !! absolutely would never spend my money here ever again, and no one that i know of will be coming here if i have any say in it. wouldn't be surprised if we get food poisoning and absolutely will be disputing the charge.

If there were a rating less than one star I would definitely give it to this place! Found their menu in the lobby of our hotel, it said in Big Red letters we deliver. We decided to call them for delivery, ask them if they delivered, they said of course. We then went on to place and almost $100 order. Then they told us they could not deliver to our hotel. My daughter went to go pick up the food. She got there approximately 20 minutes after placing the order and our foods still wasn't ready. She sat there and waited for another 20 to 25 minutes before it was ready to go. Then, when she got back to the hotel, we unpacked the food and started playing it. The chicken was so overcooked I couldn't even chew it, the fried rice was just awful, the sweet and sour pork was hard so hard that it was almost impossible with you. The low main wasn't bad. The soup was pretty good. But for $100 I would expect a lot better. Don't waste your money people.

My delivery came well within timeframe. The food was still hot/warm. Egg rolls & crab Rangoon were very crispy. Just as I like them. I will definately order again.

Would give negative stars if I could. Chicken was so dry and overcooked I could not even stab it with a fork! The chicken was literally as hard as a rock. Do not waste your money. Crab ragoons weren't even that good and I love me some ragoons! ?

Only 1 star so I could post this warning. ⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️ DO NOT ORDER, me and my kids were sick for 3 days. Uber eats, Door dash and Grubhub should remove so they stop encouraging this restaurant. Ordering out for some people isn't something they can afford to do often, so when they do, we shouldnt be taken advantage of. 50 bucks down the drain literally 3 days on the pot! My son said, "Are you sure it's not just a front for some other business, because the food was disgusting?"

I can't even say how bad or good the food was because I never got my 40 dollar order. I called after 30+ min of waiting for the food, and they just asked for my number and said they'd get back to me. Low and behold, they didn't get back to me and wouldn't answer the phone when I called back. Definitely don't eat here. Terrible service!

I use to be low-key addicted to this places food, NOT ANYMORE!! The food taste like it's full of MSG or something it taste old, I ordered the salt and pepper chicken and half of the pieces where rock hard I'm pretty much done with, this the type of place your lible to get food poisoning from

The second to last time I ordered from here, I got food poisoning and I dealt with it the entire next day. This latest time, there was a bone in the sesame chicken and it was mushy and mostly breading. Oh yeah, there was also a 3 inch long hair in the food as well. NEVER ORDERING FROM CHENG AGAIN. (picture of bone below)

Ordered on doordash for the first time last night for the first time, they have the best sweet and sour sauce I have ever tried, the food was great with reasonable portions and actually warmed up great the next day. We also got a really cool 2022 bamboo Calender. We will order again!

This is my go to Chinese place and I'm so sad to be posting thisOrdered at 7pm delivery and they said one hour as usual. after an hour and a half I call for an update and was told driver was right around the corner. After another 15 minutes I called back and was told to give him another two minute after another 30 I called AGAIN and was told he was around the corner again. Finally at three Hours I asked for a refund and they seemed appalled. Unfortunately they've Lost my business.
