This is the best Chinese food ever. I have had most all dishes and have not been disappointed. Some of the favorites are crispy chicken, pepper steak, chicken and broccoli, chicken lo mein and scallops. The hot and sour soup is Awesome and best I have ever eaten anywhere. Thank You Carena Kwok.

Best Chinese in Charleston! Been eating here for years, it's awesome! As good or better than P. F. Changs in my opinion. You won't be disappointed.

Don't be put off by the dive look. Really good dumplings! Authentic taste. The service was quick. Avoid calling in if you can.

Main Kwong is delicious! No kidding, I've yet to have anything that's not been tasty, fresh, and the prices are unbeatable. The dining area is small, but we always order takeout anyway. My opinion, can't be beat!

I ordered chicken lo mein and General Tso's chicken. Order was done in 10 minutes and tasted fantastic. Staff was extremely polite and friendly and included a dessert free of charge. I would definitely recommend Main Kwong to all my friends and friendly.

Love Main Kwong! Best General Tso's in town. Call in your order and by the time you drive there it will be ready. Good value for the money.
