Great Food and live music to boot!

As part of their ongoing entertainment series Andy brought in one of our favorite performers, Jonathan Edwards, who, as always, puts on a great show...this time with support from Tom Snow, a talented keyboardist.

Now let's start with the most important part - the food. The food is good! The vegetables are bright and fresh and the portion sizes are generous. I know other reviewers mentioned that they thought it was too pricey. I've only gone there for lunch and I think that the $8.50-$11.50 combination meals are quite reasonable. So let's get to...

...keep driving. This place, in its hey-day, was excellent. Now the decor is dirty and outdated, and with so much stuff hanging from the ceiling you have to wonder when was the last time it was cleaned. The food comes directly from the kitchen to your table in under 30 seconds and is stone cold And do not complain because... More

I visited this restaurant recently with friends. The food came out promptly. All of the food items tasted very well with plenty of flavor. They feature a very extensive menu. The server was quite friendly. I have always been happy with this restaurant.

When driving up route 1 this, amongst other kitschy restaurants, cries out. I bit. Unfortunately most of the ones i saw growing up along this stretch of road are closed but Kowloon was alway an icon amongst the dross. so I stopped in. If you are expecting a 'tiki' interior that needs a good cleaning, this is your place. One... More

I have been going to the Kowloon since I was a young child. The building looks similar to how it did in the 1980s. The food is decent for Chinese, although a bit pricier than your average Chinese restaurant. I wouldn't recommend it if you were looking for a place to relax with your friends/family. The servers are prompt and... More

Wanted to substitute vegetable fried rice instead of pork. Willing to pay extra, but they wouldn't let us. Walked out. Would have a $30+ sale, instead they got nothing. First, and last time. Went down the road and found just what we were looking for at Sho Yu's.

The best chicken fingers you will ever have! NEVER greasy, loaded with chicken not just a bunch of batter. I love the new Fried Chicken Potstickers. Fan of the Roasted Pork Wonton Soup. Saugus Wings are also amazing. Love the atmosphere and the family that own this place.

Have always wanted to try this place out...used to see the parking lot full of cars so assumed it must be a great place to eat. We finally stopped in on our way back from Boston. ..was so very very disappointed! The food and drinks were not good..they were terrible! In their defense I know not all asian/polynesion/chinese food is... More
