As much as i love the Kong since many years, this is the second time I have a bad surprise with the sashimi. Today my tuna sashimi were still frozen. Let's hope one day Kong will serve fresh fish. Meanwhile I will stick to their cooked menu.

As always, quite a great restaurant! Although we sat at the worst place in the restaurant (the far left hand corner right beside the washrooms), we enjoyed the food and had a great waiter! I tried their signature cocktail of a rooibos cosmopolitain which was pretty unique! I was craving a meal of only sushi and that was what I... More

A very pleasant Asian fusion culinary experience. We came to celebrate my moms birthday. Service was very pleasant. Very nice environment. Tempura prawns were light and tasty. 6 in a portion very good value. Hong Kong pears were tasty, maybe too mushy, but not enough to put me off. Spicy lamb Gyoza was excellent. Will definitely return to try other... More

Kong is a well-run restaurant; it's big, it has a great vibe, and it was busy, but our waiter was perfect. He knew the dishes, he knew what to recommend, and he was attentive. After a spring roll starter (nice, but ordinary) I was excited to order half a Peking duck, which is never usually available in half portions. My... More

The restaurant has a fantastic venue and looks very classy and upmarket. When I arrived I had high expectations. When I looked at the menu prices, I realised that it is an expensive restaurant and because of that I was expecting something special. For dinner we settled for the top set menu. When the food arrived, I was straight away... More

I had visited a month previously mid week. The food was good and hot when brought to the table. I returned on a Friday a month later, the food was not as good, the portions were smaller and were not that hot. The service was definitely slower regardless that the waiter was attentive the order took longer than expected to... More

We go here at least once a month as its around the corner from our house. We were so disgusted when they informed us that we would pay R125 corkage on our bottle of wine, which, by the way, they do not serve. The food is tasty, but they also skimp on some of the dishes like the sushi... The... More

When the four of us arrived on a Friday night we were impressed by the huge size of the place and the expensive decor. The staff were pleasant and attentive and we ordered cocktails and wine and then food. The cocktails were presentable and the wine was fine. But the food left a lot to be desired. Some food was...
