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

We enjoy the food here quite often. Prices are reasonable & portions are generous. Mongolian Beef can either be hot or mild according up your preference. Our children love the lo-mein. Service is always quick whether you dine in or take to go.

Heading home from AZ, we passed through Indio-Palm Springs without stopping. Had to leave the highway for food. Our luck. About 5 miles off I-10 we found Kam LUN. We've eaten a lot of Chinese, and this was GOOD. All portions were big, and each dish we picked was liked by the whole group. We'll be back

Up to now, we were traveling to Palm Springs for Chinese food, when all the time the BEST was here in DHS. The food had fresh flavors ang the portions were large. Prices were inexpensive; 3 of us for under $50 with drinks! The staff was personable; smile and it gets even better. I would definitely recommend Kam Lun in... More

Off the main beat, but well worth the drive. Their menu is varied, their portions large and their quality is surprisingly good.

The place definitely will not appear on the cover of Interior Design, but their food deserves a Michelin star. This place was the highlight of out not so nice stay in Desert Hot Springs!
