surami or pollock instead of seafood

The seafood chow mein we had feb 13 was half surami fish or pollock , a simili of lobster. This is a false representation of the menu that says: lobster,shrimp and vegetable. The lady I talk on the phone said there is no fish in the plate repeatibly.

We live here since October and we try every Chinese Restaurant in Town. And definitely this one is the best. My husband and I always order for lunch. The price is fine and the food is delicious. My kids love the egg rolls. The staff is very friendly all the time.

I live in Key West and have ordered from every chinese restaurant in town, except this one, until now. I place a very simple order for delivery "General Tso's Extra Spicy and a diet soda" To their credit the food arrived quickly, however it was not what I ordered. What I received was honey chicken. It was not the slightest... More

We were tired after a long day and decided to order in. The food was average. We explained that we were in a hotel and needed everything to be able to eat in our room. The meal came with 3 plates and 3 forks, no napkins, no chopsticks, no knives or spoons.

My wife and I looked online for great Chinese food and was led to this joint. From the outside, it didn't look impressive, however once home, we discovered we hit the jackpot. Everything was extremely fresh, tasty and plenty for leftovers. We made a 2nd trip 5 days later.

I'm picky about Chinese food, but was told to order here. So, I did. I got the sweet and sour chicken with pork fried rice. It was all pretty good except they forgot the sweet and sour sauce! Isn't that the point of ordering that menu item? At least the delivery driver was pleasant. Not sure if I will try... More

We moved here back in December and have gotten takeout from Tong's about 4 times now. Every time the food has been prepared perfectly and the price is just fine for Key West. From the crab rangoon to the general tsao's chicken, the food is excellent, fresh, and huge portions.

It's a GOOD restaurant that i ever had, i can tell they have a bad service, it's cause they an't American they are not from here, what if you went to a america restaurant in the plane they were born, you wouldn't understand them.

I dont understand why the negative feedback on this place. The family that runs this place are very polite people. I have been going there for many years. This is the only place in Key West that have very good chinese food. They do tend to cook it mildly for the people demand it but if you ask them to... More
