Love this place!! The Cashew Chicken is the best. I go here at least once every 2 weeks. Place is nice and the help is great. Whenever you are craving the best, make sure to come here!!

As a broke frat boy in the late 70s, I ate cashew chicken almost every Sunday night. $5 bought a pint of fried rice covered with a mixture of roasted cashews and pieces of boneless fried chicken in a brown sauce. Today I experienced the spring from which a well of cashew chicken restaurants has sprung forth. Sunday lunch at... More

My wife had their signature dish, cashew chicken there was absolutely no flavor or taste in the chicken. I had beef and brockie there were so many onions it totally drowned out the flavors of the ingredients.

It seems folks from tho area have pretty low standards for what is said to be a great food... Or maybe it's because I have lived where there is an abundance of great food to available. This is one place that I will not likely ever set foot in again. And many folks from SGF have recommended it. Food was... More

What ever I ordered was really good. Server was very patient even though is was nearing closing time. The food was plenty. Décor needs updating . They also have a drive through which I did not see until I left the restaurant

My husband and I went to Leong' s for our anniversary dinner (34 years), specifically to get Springfield style Cashew Chicken. We live 65 miles away, but this restaurant was advertised as the originator of the dish, and appeared in the advertisements as an elegant place. When we got there, the interior was a disappointment. Average steakhouse type furniture, slim... More

I had read that this was the restaurant that started the cashew chicken trend in Springfield, so we decided to try it. I had the Dave's special and the choices I made were the hot & sour soup - wonderful flavor with nice crispy wontons on top; the egg roll - really good - I had heard they were made... More
