    I had Kum Kau last night and it was simply takeout Chinese for but everything tasted GREAT! I would definitely recommend this spot. I had Sesame Chicken, House Rice & Mixed Vegetable!

    I come often for the chicken wings. Also, this is easily the cleanest Chinese restaurant I've ever seen; the kitchen is right behind the counter and it's astoundingly sanitary.

    Call in your order B4 you get here, then take your time coming, you will wait for your food. Its faster to just sit down and eat here then do the take-out.

    Portions here are giant, the place often has beggars by the door but food's good. Don't bother with the restaurant portion, prices are way higher there with same take-out food. Make sure to call ahead

    I was lured in by the rating but this was terrible... dim sum came out with frozen meat in the middle. Breading on General Tso's was not fully cooked.
