Tony Cheng’s Restaurant, Where the Presidents Dine


This Chinatown restaurant owned and operated by Tony Cheng has been a mainstay for over 30 years and makes it a very special place to dine. The restaurant has been enjoyed by past Presidents such as Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.

Tony Cheng offers two restaurants in one location. There is great authentic Asian cuisine on the upper level which DC Nitelife had the pleasure of enjoying and an authentic Mongolian BBQ buffet on the lower level where you pick the ingredients for the chef to cook in front of you.

DC Nitelife was able to experience the crispy whole fish Hunan style, live lobster Schezuan style and the signature General Tso Chicken.  All dishes were prepared to perfection.

Winner of the Blue Ribbon,100 Very Best Restaurants, Washington’s Best and Best Bargain Awards.  The restaurant is packed to capacity every weekday lunch and the hot pot is the most delicious shrimp feast at a bargain price. Dim sum is available at lunch weekdays, as well as on the weekend, but during the week, you can order items off the menu, rather than from the cart.

Popular Dishes are the live lobster, fish, crab, beef, pork, and chicken prepared your favorite way.

The restaurant features:

  • Party Room with dance floor for 50 250
  • Hong Kong style Dim Sum Daily
  • Holiday parties are welcome

Located at:
619 H St., N.W., Washington DC 20001
