The world's best Mai Tais!

As a very popular radio announcer used to say - "The best Chinese restaurant on the east coast" It must be, the large parking lot is always full. The atmosphere is a bit noisy, very busy, kind of dark and the decor maybe a bit dated - but if you start off with a Mai Tai, you'll get by the... read more

While we did have a wait to get a table by the fountain, there was no wait for the food once we ordered it, despite it being a fairly busy Saturday evening.

Repurposed an old Polynesian restaurant. Waitress was hard to understand and not friendly. The only good thing was food was served quickly. Food was mediocre at best. Would not recommend

Normally we really enjoy Kowloon. Maybe it was a REALLY off night... We stopped by with some family to share a pupu platter and catch up on family news... The chatter was great, the food and service: not so much! Even the kids thought the appetizers were not good... - Crab rangoons had no crab and the filling was that... More

Went here for a family dinner. There were 9 of us and I made a reservation. Table was ready for us and food was delicious BUT service left a lot to be desired. Two separate requests were ignored (one to have little to no time in between our appetizers and main dishes, which is usually the norm for this establishment... More

The Kowloon is a Massachusetts treasure. It has been there forever and is still a great place to go after all these years. We had not been in a very long time since we do not travel that way much anymore, but went to see a comedy show and have dinner and drinks. The best thing about the Kowloon is... More

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
