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

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
