The egg drop soup was delicious! As was the pot stickers, crab Rangoon, and egg rolls. The cashew chicken was as good as it ever was. We have eaten here before and always been pleased with our meals. This night, we had three "newbies" with us, and they were very happy with their meals also. One of our group had... More

So disappointed that the food I loved as a kid, does not taste the same, look same, or have the feel of the original, but the biggest issue is the price!!!! Lunch special cashew... More

Cashew chicken didn't taste anything like the chicken from the original restraunt. Also, it was too expensive for what you got.

We went at around 5:30 & were done eating by 6. The food was good. My husband had a level 5 spice & it was too hot even for him so make sure you like extremely spicy if you order that level. My mom & I shared the cashew chicken because they give you a lot of food.

Whenever I get a chance to travel to this part of Missouri I eat here! It is such a treat to get Cashew Chicken prepared this way and this is the best place. If you've never had it, you can order half sweet and sour and half cashew, to give it a try.

Did the drive thru tonight. Took about 30 minutes after our order was taken. The food was hot and fresh tasting. Paid extra to have all white chicken. Disappointed in how small the wontons were. Otherwise a good portion of good for the price.

We were online looking for Chinese restaurants open after 9pm, and found Leong's (open until 10pm). We heard they had "the best cashew chicken in Springfield", so we thought, "Hell, let's try it". We arrived there about 9:25pm, and were concerned because there were no cars in the front of the parking lot on a Saturday night, but walked in... More

The old stand-by Sweet and Sour Chicken or Cashew Chicken can't be beat. And the egg rolls are the best! Am headed there now!
