“A real treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The excellent food is only part of the reason we enjoyed Kam Meng so much. The owner, her story, and her talent made our dinner an unforgettable experience. She composes music and performs her songs on the piano in the dining room. Her music comes from her heart and is based on her life experiences from being a child in Communist China to her life in Newport today. She is also an accomplished artist, and there are examples of her work in the restaurant. This was one meal I will never forget.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

went 2 times in the last 2 months. The General Tso chicken wasn't crispy or tasty, neither was the sweet and sour chicken - wasted calories

“Good food but too much self promotion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We are locals and enjoy the food, understand the owner's interest in art and music but we shouldn't have it thrown in our face all the time. We went a few days ago and instead of a menu on the table, there's a laminated life story about the owner. Her paintings and even t-shirts with her artwork abound. She points them out to you whether you're interested or not. You can hardly converse with her music playing but at least it's pleasant. I think we'd enjoy her creativity more if it weren't thrust down our throats.

“Music, Art and Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Great food, beautiful music, friendly staff. The owner plays her own compositions on the piano from time to time. The food is reasonable and very good. The seafood is fresh. They accommodate special diets.
