Tasty food with vegetarian options

We were a large party of vegetarians and nonvegetarians, which the restaurant caters to very well. The service was very good even though the restaurant was busy. The food was very good but not amazing.

Very disappointed to see that the reason I had to pay for parking was because employees take the only free spots right outside the door for themselves. The food is only average. The service and food preparation time was ridiculously slow, especially given there were only three tables dining (all of whom should have had free parking, NOT THE EMPLOYEES).... More

My family has been coming here for years, we're regulars. There are many regular here and they treat their regulars like family. One of the most consistently good Chinese restaurants in Los Angeles. Ingredients are always fresh. They have the best happy hour. The drinks are delicious. The servers are not just servers, but our friends now. Can't recommend Kung... More

Spectacularly ordinary, although the portions are quite filling. But come on, kids, your dishes need to provide a kick to the tastebuds, as being bland just doesn't cut the (hot) mustard.

We were staying at the W hotel in Hollywood. There are no real chinese restaurants within easy walking distance. Plenty of Thai and Japanese places but we really wanted Chinese. So I saw Kung Pao's online reviews and they were truly mixed but underneath all the polarities was a general consistency, good chinese food. We ordered by phone, and they... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
