This is the second time I have been here. The make shrimp toast and that is hard to find. It is delicious! Also had the Szechuan beef, it was good, but could be more spicy. Never the less It was tasty and I will go back.

We have been ordering food from Main Kwong for years- it's our go-to take out place. It's always yummy, fast, and hot. Wouldn't get Chinese from anywhere else in Charleston.

If you dont have anything nice to say...in this case.. try not to say much... Granted, its Chinese take out, I get that.. and with that said did not have high expectations for my order. That said, I've had chinese takeout from a number of places around the country, and international for that matter. Its true in what the reviews... More

I've been eating at Main Kwong since 2003 and I love it! I've even had it for Christmas dinner!! Although I live 20 miles away now, I still will pick it up when I get to town.

better than expected from a little "take out" place, and the owner aims to please - if you are dissatisfied she more than makes it right!

My wife and I walked 2 miles to get there and seen a crowded very small place with just a few seats. We almost did not go in! We are very glad we did. We both had the bourbon chicken. For like 13.00 including drink the special served two. The service is great and it was fun watching the regulars... More

Every town has a Chinese restaurant, but not every place has a Main Kwong. This is by far the BEST Chinese food I have ever had. Highly recommend it...try the crispy chicken if you can't decide.

Typical greasy Chinese take-out. Lots of it (for the price, anyway), unidentifiable meats, and rice rice RICE. Staff is very friendly and frequently includes a little box of cakes in take out orders.
