“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

It has been a while... We decided to visit the Kowloon last night and were very happy with the experience.

We were quickly greeted at the door and seated right away (it gets busy at the dinner rush so get there a little off the usual rush if you want to avoid waits)

The hot and sour soup is one of the best.. If you are a fan of it make sure you try it.

We had chicken fried rice, lemon chicken, beef with pea pods, Peking ravioli, and egg rolls... all of it fresh and just as someone from the area would like is... Easier than going into Boston Chinatown but every bit as good!!

After so many years they still do a great job!!

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Kowloon - the place to go to meet up with friends. Great bar and excellent function rooms upstairs. Enjoyed the water fountains in the dining area too.

“Kowloon is not what it once was!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food at Kowloon has fallen off dramatically. A lot of it is cooked hours n advance by the time it is served, t is dry and tasteless. They load everything with MSG and I along with a lot of other people get I'll from it. Too bad,they were the best at one time!

“Its A North Shore Institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I cannot count how many times I have eaten here...lunch, dinner, special occasions, you name it. Its a very busy place so the food is always fresh. Its one of the best lunch places on Rt 1. The menu is huge for both the drinks and food. They have great entertainment...mostly comedy. I have had birthdays, communion and graduation parties there and they do a great job. If you go ask for big May for a waitress, she's the best and she is tiny so I can't imagine how little small May must be.

“Best Asian Restaurant on North Shore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

If you want to walk into an asian atmosphere with volcano's and seagrass and ocean and then get the best of quality asian food and drinks then make this a must on your list. Nobody makes a better meal for the money.
