Out if this world pad thai

We came for the famous cashew chicken, but were blown away by the pad thai. Crab Rangoon and egg drop soup were good, but its a bit strange getting chicken in egg drop soup.

The food was good but no better than much cheaper Chinese food that I have had in the Springfield area. I also thought it was a little overpriced for what was on the menu. The menu was a little bit more creative than most Chinese places but not overly impressive.

After reading countless good reviews, hearing all too many good words, and reading a few magazine articles about this place I finally pulled the trigger and dined-in. The service was certainly reasonable, and our food arrived in a timely manner. Yet, my dislikes started early. The prices on the menu were quite a bit higher than I was expecting for... More

These folks are famous for their Cashew Chicken, and Springfield is also famous for Cashew Chicken as a result. Christmas Eve tradition with my family is Cashew Chicken, but several years ago, I determined that I was too messy a cook in my own kitchen to do this myself, and Leong's is very close to there I live. So -... More

I took my elderly mother to Leong's for lunch. We were greeted immediately and staff were very friendly. Our waitress, Precilla, was very attentive and patient, as it took time for us to decide. Ordered happy hour glass of wine and it was excellent - very generous serving and a bargain at $3.00 per glass. Food served quickly, temperature perfect... More

If you have not tried Springfield Cashew chicken...... stop at Leongs (for me..I ask for DARK MEAT ONLY) ...and try it! This is unlike any other cashew... More

Having grownup in the area before relocated to the KC area many years ago we miss Springfield Cashew Chicken. Being back in the area for a conference we decided to go for the original. The cashew chicken did not disappoint but the wonton soup and crab rangoon were amazing. We both went with the "David's Favorite" and were very pleased... More

This is the best Chinese Restaurant ever! The inventor of "Springfield Cashew Chicken". Best hot and sour Soup I have ever had. Hot mustard is amazing I have never had anything like it. If you are in Springfield you must eat here. sou

Glad to have the original creator of Springfield Cashew Chicken back in business. My family and I stopped there on our way home to KC and it was just as good as I remembered it from my childhood!

We decided to try the famous Springfield Cashew Chicken. We did get our orders to go. I was underwhelmed with my meal. I expected more than just chicken and cashews and a few green onions there were no veggies? It wasn't bad, but it was nothing special. The egg rolls and crab Rangoon were good but you could get similar... More
