I am reading reviews and since I've eaten at Kwan's for maybe 30 years, I guess I could weigh in. I agree that service is personal and courteous, for the most part. My sense is that the owner has not put a lot of investment into how staff relate to guests. I've witnessed interactions between him and wait-persons that I... More

To be fair, I haven't eaten here in years. We ate regularly for years, food was more and more boring and disappointing.

The Kwan family takes great care of their customers! They offer many options for those with special diet needs. Kwan's Cuisine is our family's choice for dining out, whether it is a family dinner, or a date night treat. We love the food and service at Kwan's and highly recommend it to you!

Mr. Kwan is always so friendly but some of the waiter people are not as friendly and act like they have never seen me before even though I go in quite often. I think the food is good and reasonable. My favorite spot downtown.

Whether we're tired & hungry after a day of do-it-yourself projects at home or we're celebrating a special occasion, Kwan's is THE PLACE! We are greeted warmly by name & made to feel welcome. My husband has been coming here to eat for about 35 years & this restaurant is still at the top of his list. The food is... More

Food is overpriced. Taste and quality of food is average to good (never gotten any great or exceptional meals), but you pay a premium price. My wife and I dine out often and have eaten at Kwans 3 times, but it is just not worth the price. We will choose another Chinese or Asian restaurant. There are better values for... More

Mr. Kwan is amazing! His potstickers are the best ever! He's a highly awarded chef! He's there every time I go! His family is wonderful too! I've brought friends here for years and always been treated like family!

Mr. Kwan came to our table and showed us the different types of rice we could order on our next visit. The flavor and service are unbeatable. We are moving away soon, and will miss the Kwan's.

We recently were party of a wedding rehearsal dinner at Kwan Original Cuisine. The meal was outstanding and the atmosphere very good.

This Chinese restaurant had the WORST "Hot and Sour" soup I have ever had! The food was mediocre at best and had kind of a weird flavor that just didn't sit well with my nose or stomach. The Egg Foo Yong was not cooked all the way through and the gravy on it left a lot to be desired. Over... More
