Westborough – If you have not been to Cheng Du Restaurant, 157 Turnpike Road (Route 9) recently, you are in for a pleasant surprise. The restaurant has undergone over a $1 million renovation, which makes it one of the most unique dining experiences in the region. On June 28, state and local officials, town leaders, community representatives, family, and friends celebrated the restaurant's ribbon cutting ceremony.

Owners Kuo-Rung Tang and his wife, Fong, have reinvented Cheng Du and focused on best practices, integrating the latest industry trends that make this restaurant very desirable. Cheng Du Restaurant now offers three separate restaurants under one roof: Cheng Du, 157 Bin, and Akamon.

“It is with great pleasure that I join in celebrating the newly remodeled Cheng Du Restaurant,” said U.S. Senator Scott P. Brown, in a letter read by his Deputy State Director Lydia Goldblatt. “Your devotion to serving the community quality food is evident. The hard work and dedication required to achieve this feat is commendable.”

“Residents and members of the business community must visit the new Cheng Du in Westborough. Cheng Du has transformed their restaurant into the ultimate dining experience.

This Asian Restaurant has a fresh new look and the combination of their great food and incredible wine bar and lounge provides the perfect setting for all your family, friend or business events,” said Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce President Barbara Clifford.

Cheng Du, the original Chinese restaurant, has received a major facelift, and continues to serve traditional homemade Chinese cuisine, using the freshest ingredients.

One of the two new restaurants also under the Cheng Du umbrella is already making a big impact in the region. The new 68-seat upscale restaurant, 157 Bin, is a modern Asian-inspired wine bar and lounge with high-end furnishings, which serves over 40 wines by the glass.

“I'se been collecting wines since 2005, and the wine bar and wine collection reflects this,” Tang said.

157 Bin's (which is named after its address on Turnpike Road) international cuisine, extensive one-of-a-kind wine collection, and onsite wine expert, make it desirable for people from central Massachusetts, Metrowest, and beyond.

Tang is excited to introduce a unique new dining experience with Akamon, a full-service Japanese restaurant featuring a Kushiyaki Grill, sushi, and a variety of premium sake at the Sake bar. Akamon is the only restaurant in Massachusetts that will offer a Kushiyaki Grill, the Japanese style of grilling tidbits of meat or fish on a skewer.

“I's thrilled to be able to offer something that is totally different and special to central Massachusetts,” Tang said. “I want this to be a place that people cannot wait to come back to. I believe we'se succeeded in making that happen.”
