Kowloons is the historic official neighborhood dining location for authentic Chinese food in Saugus. Have been going there for years, and the Wong family has always treated us as a part of their family. Simply put, huge variety of Asian cuisine, and always has been fantastic. Will always return as long as they are in business!

I was not impressed years ago, but my opinion has changed over the past 5 to 10 years. Everytime I go there I find something that I find keeps me going back for more. The Ribs (on the bone) are by far the best around. The Saugus Wings are a big favorite of most people, I myself enjoy the regular... More

The place was super crowded but they still managed to seat us for our reservations within half an hour of the agreed-upon time. The management apologized profusely for the delay, but I told them we were there to relax and there was no huge hurry. The food was very good, the service was the same. Drinks are tasty and strong!

I grew up North of Boston but moved to the South Shore in 1994. I was coming back from skiing in Maine and was so excited to make a stop here. Ordered what used to be the famous "Saugus Wings". They were so awful, they are supposed to be garlic wings and all I could taste was too much brown... More

Growing up in Saugus, Kowloon is always* a place to go. The food is pretty average and really Americanized Chinese fare. The menu is really large, and if you're indecisive like me, it's too large. The drinks are as good as every says, but are REALLY strong. No matter what you get will be good, and you will gulp it... More

Ate here a few weeks ago. Have not been here for over 40 years. The restaurant is very large. The parking lot was filled with cars and people kept pouring in, but there was plenty of space to serve everyone. Typical Polynesian decor. The food we ate was more reminiscent of the Chinese food from my youth. Most Chinese restaurants... More

We went to Kowloon at the end of a night out. We got the pupu platter, duck, rice and drinks. They had a band and it was good. The food was hot and delicious. The duck was great. We took our time and did not feel rushed . Being from New Hampshire, I would come down here just for the... More

Just dined at Kowloon tonight on the way back to Portland from Boston. We had not been here in years and we were looking forward to some solidly authentic Chinese/Polynesian food. We were sorely disappointed. It was not crowded, but we felt rushed ftom the moment we arrived. The waiter came by 4 times as we perused the menu to... More
