Dinner is served nightly, and drag shows are once nightly Sunday through Thursday and then with some a longer show and some additional shows during the weekend evenings. Three-course prix-fixe dinner menus area available (it's a good value), and tables of friends can also order a bunch of larger platters to feast on family-style - goodies like Chinese-spiced duck confit salad, Mandarin orange-glazed pork tenderloin skewers, and seared guava-yuzu scallops.
Lucky Cheng's has an interesting reputation in NYC's gay community - on the one hand, it's fun and kind of silly, and the glamorous and high-camp aspects of the place make it a favorite of people from all over the city, including more than a few celebs. On the other hand, the gay scene in the East Village tends toward young, hipster-ish, and anti-commercial, so if you chat with neighborhood queers, many of them will claim never to have been to Lucky Cheng's, and some may refer to it with a certain sense of reverse-snobbery or derision. I actually lived directly across the street from Lucky Cheng's for two years and never happened to go inside, but if since had drinks there and thought it quite fun, if nothing like other gay hangouts in the neighborhood.
There's a second Lucky Cheng's located adjacent to Planet Hollywood Casino, next to Krave gay nightclub, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
