We met some friends for dinner. There were ten of us, service was great food was good and process not bad. It's an old bloomington restaurant and the decor shows it but I will for sure go back. Egg rolls are best I have had in Minnesota

Today my family tried David Fongs for lunch since we were in the area. The three of us were seated rapidly and waited 10 mins for menus and water. This was preceded by a 40 min wait for our meal. We should have walked out because the food was horrific. The egg rolls were reheated, stale and cold. The two... More

I wasn't sure on a Friday night how long a wait it would be but surprisingly I was seated right away, served promptly and had a good meal. Nothing fancy about the place but it seemed to be quite popular by the locals. I had a refrigerator in my hotel so I took some food back with me. I did... More

For me this restaurant has some of the best Chinese food in the Minneapolis area. Its a family owned 'establishment', having been around for decades . Food is very well prepared. Their Walnut Shrimp is awesome and is my favorites. For a side dish, try their green beans. Setting is nothing fancy, I'd say it's rather 'nostalgic' but the restaurant... More

David Fong's offers great Chinese food, freshly prepared and nicely served. The staff is very friendly and outgoing and very helpful regarding menu items. I think everything is made to order and not "precooked".

One of the largest Chinese American type restaurants in the Minneapolis area. Probably can seat up to 250 with the downstairs. Huge bar area. Probably looking for authentic Hong Kong style food, but not to be found here. Standard dishes. Nice service though.

This place is a few blocks from where I work in Bloomington and we go there quite a bit for a quick bite to eat, their lunch menu is reasonable and you get a decent helping of food and a bowl of sticky rice, the servers are great, very polite and set the customers satisfaction to the top of their...

I have not eaten here for 25 years. I remember why not and nothing has changed. The food, while plentiful, is mediocre at best The chow mein is bland, the egg foo young terrible and the fried rice seems to be left over from a Mexican dinner elsewhere. The crowd was predominantly elderly and those that were younger, don't know... More

Growing up with a million Cantonese restaurants on the north eastern sea board, I recall certain tastes and smells that have been hard to replicate amongst the Sechuan and Hunan restaurants locally. David Fong's not only satisfies the old cravings for Spare Ribs and Egg Rolls but the pepper steak is the best I have had in many years. The... More
