Great food

We were only in town for 2 weeks, but we made sure to eat here several times. Small family owned restaurant. It's worth searching for. Fresh veggies, large portions and lunch specials--just a few reasons we love this place. Really good food.

We had dinner here. I had orange chicken, my husband had almond chicken. Both dishes came with soup and rice and both were excellent. A lot of food, we took some home. I highly recommend this restaurant for great food and great service.

Although we are use to the more exotic Chinese food of Vancouver and San Francisco we did find the luncheon $5.99 package special a very good and somewhat decent option for the desert area. The location is way up the top of the hill and to your right but it is clean and worthy of a visit

From one who has traveled extensively in Asia, this restaurant could compete favorably with any venue in China. I fondly refer to Kam Lun as my favorite local "greasy chop stick." That is a very untoward name as their food is not greasy - not at all. I really enjoy the Wor Won Ton Soup - and like chop suey,... More

I was taken to Kam Lun by a friend that lives in Desert Hot Springs. The restaurant is in a small strip off off the beaten path. They have a $5.50 combo lunch from 11:00 - 3:00 with 36 items. The lunches include soup, egg roll, rice, the entree and iced or hot tea - that is a deal. The... More

For starters, they do not go overboard on salt....so many Chinese places pour on salt as a substitute for cooking skill but this food is not overly salty. Good size portions....,comfy booths....reasonably priced and very casual style
