WoW!!! Enjoying a local craft brew and Kung Pao Chicken (without mushrooms and zucchini) was a perfect compliment to their spicy paste on the table. Ladies, you can enjoy exciting Appetizers and still kiss your partner! Dudes, their Happy Hour selections are a must from 4:00pm- 7:00pm. The servers were fun and joyful, the decor was pleasing, and the presentation... More

Went there on a slow Sunday afternoon with husband and daughter. Waitress looked bothered by us, took a long time to take our order. The main course came out before appetizers, and the waitress completely ignored my daughter- did not bring her a plate. Food was good - but not spectacular, certainly not enough to come back there again. Disappointed.

Shrimp with vegetables, garlic spicy eggplant with brown rice - very health conscious - actually their food is excellent - good food good company - parking is a little tricky as this is in the same lot as Whole Foods! Definitely great food with affordable pricing.....

One of the best chinese food I have ever eaten. Everything is just amazing. It is a nice little restaurant with great service. The prices. Are low (for West Hollywood). If you want to eat Chinese, definitely eat at Kung Pao.

I had take out from here the other night. The sweet and sour chicken was cooked the way I liked it. Small succulent pieces of chicken and great tasting source. Nothing is over-priced and the portions are fair. It did not disappoint.

Great service and Great food. They started a gluten free vegan menu which is delicious. I've never had a dish there that I didn't enjoy and love.

Had the pleasure of dining here this past weekend. I'm a meat eater but my friend is a vegan. I tried some of the vegan options and couldn't tell the difference ! Tasty, portions are huge. Prices are great Very very impressed! My vegan friend loved it too. Noticed that it has great Zagat ratings for past 10 years too!

This place takes bookings, which is convenient. The food is quite plain, but nice, and the prices are very reasonable. The staff are friendly. Probably the best place for Chinese food in West Hollywood.

I was a regular - as in 2-3 times a week - at Kung Pao Bistro in the early Aughts when I was in college. It was brand new when I first moved down the street on Norton and my then-roommate recommended it. The food was truly fantastic for what it was, the prices were amazing and the service was... More

Went here with family because husband wanted Chinese food on the way home. So good that we will probably return soon. There were so many vegan choices on menu our DIL had had a hard time choosing, Her Robot "chicken" was delicious, even the meat eaters liked it. Appetizers were yummy and our shared main dishes were gobbled up. Restaurant... More
