My family and I have visited Chengs, both sit down and take out, on numerous occasions Without fail, the food has been fresh, hot, and delicious. The staff are friendly and prompt. Service for sit down has been as good as we could ask for. With carry out, an order for 4 could take 20-30 minutes to be ready, but... More

Have been looking for good Chinese food sense we relocated to the area. This isn't the closest place to where we live. About 20 mile drive but we will definitely make the trip many time to come. Best Chinese food we have had in years. Cost is reasonable and serve is good. They also have a drive through.

Cheng's is often our choice if we've been busy and need something good for lunch or dinner in a hurry. The pickup window makes it just a little bit faster and easier to do take-out than any other Chinese restaurant in town. My favorite dishes are Singapore Noodles, which is spiced with curry, and the House Special Lo Mein, which... More

Very good and flavorful. Loved tasting the ginger in my broccoli chicken. Presentation was also lovely. Egg rolls were some of the best I've had.

Stopped in for lunch one day and enjoyed great service and food. My glass was never empty and my shrimp lo mein was wonderful! Also very reasonably priced. Will stop in again if I am in the area.

Great Chinese food. Impressed with the amount of chicken in the chicken lo mein. Fresh veg in the beef and broccoli. Ordered 4 dishes plus egg rolls at lunch time. All were delicious, including fried rice. No MSG! They don't deliver, but I'd just get fat that way anyway. Worth a drive over. Will be going back again soon!

Great take-out. A little out-of-the way, but still my second-favorite Chinese take-out restaurant in Lexington. Good food, a little different than some of the other places in town. Excellent place.

Was in town for business and was told to try Cheng's. Small restaurant, but the food makes up for it. Did not have to wait as there were a few available tables. Large menu with a lot of variety. Huge portions and the taste was great. Will definitely return the next time I am in town.

This is my favorite Chinese place in Lexington. Literally everything I've ordered is SO good. They are so friendly here as well. When you dine in customer service is excellent as well. Food is always made to order and exceptionally fresh. Gets a bit crowded sometimes, dining area doesn't seat many, so you may have to wait. Will not eat... More

We ate a lunch special which was very reasonably priced, very tasty, and a generous serving. Our party of 3 each had something different and we were very pleased. The atmosphere was only so-so, but everything else more than made up for that. I'm planning to go back whenever I can.
