“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This was our second visit to Skipton for a short break and a 'must' to visit Kong's again. The food is fantastic and the variety of dishes is superb, especially the starters. Service was always with a smile. Would recommend to others.

“Salt, salt and bit more salt. Urghh!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Ordered a takeaway tonight.Noodles, tofu, sauces and spring rolls were almost inedible due to bizarre soap and extremely salty taste. The WORST Chinese I've ever had. Very helpful staff don't compensate for dreadful food.

“Brilliant Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Food was fantastic and all at a set price you cannot go wrong, Buffet was replenished frequently it was hot and plentyful. Service was with a smile and efficient. Soon to do letting rooms we were told by the owners Father. We would certainly book a room so close to town centre.

“Great Value and Incredible Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were seated instantly when we got there, and ordered drinks to go with our buffet meal. I ordered water with ice, which I discovered later was actually free, so I ordered more throughout my meal. My friend ordered a lemonade which at £1.40 was great value.
Then we moved onto the buffet. There was a huge selection of every type of Cantonese food possible, there were around 8 meat and sauce dishes, then there were trays and trays of noodles. rice, wontons, spring rolls, egg toast, wraps, salt and pepper chips, chicken balls, ribs etc... This was only the main course, there were soups, prawn crackers and bread rolls for starters, then a large range of desserts also!
For around £11 this was a fantastic bargain and I will definitely be returning! The service was excellent and fast, and the food was incredible.
