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

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 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

My husband and I ordered the Springfield -style- Cashew Chicken because we heard it was a popular dish from the area.

It was good quality and tasted... More

We had a great time here. Vegetarian meal was also great in addition to what my friends ate. Alcohol was very fairy priced! Mango dessert was my favorite, but my friends loved the creme brûlée.

We've been here several times & are never disappointed. Portions are good, prices are reasonable, food always tastes fresh and the service is excellent. Big fan of the cashew chicken and the kung pao chicken.
