On the day of Holi few of our friends and families a group of 30 adults hit Kim Fa. While rest of Chinatown is closed due to Holi, this restaurant was chock-a-block full. Provision for parking is outside the restaurant. On such special occasion one must reserve table and place your order in advance to avoid disappointment. Will always recommend... More

Must visit for people who like to try the tangra style chinese. The ambiance needs to be better but the food is crazy.

The best Chinese restaurant in the Tangra cluster of food joints! i.e if you care for some amount of authenticity as well. Many a sunny Sunday afternoons have been spent here relishing their yummy crab lollys and Kalyani black label!

Want the best Chinese you can get in ......... ( will leave for you to fill after you have had a meal here) come to Kim Fa .Cushioned away amidst the earlier functioning leather tannery area called Tangda nothing will give you a hint that it caters to one of the most satisfying dining experiences.

Kim Faa is a small china town eatery where still the owner chinese couple cook themselves. Don't expect fancy ambience - the place is mostly used by people who swear by its food for pickup. The Chinese living in Tangra buy food from Kim Faa. Our family picks up food at least twice a month from here. We just love... More
