“Don't tell anybody”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is by far one of the best "cheap and cheerful" Chinese restaurants I've ever eaten at. We have been going here for years and love it and tell everybody we know about it. Problem is, it's harder to get into then ever before. Having said that, once in and seated, the rest is easy. Order Sang Tung Chicken, Salt and Pepper Squid, Morning Glory with Malaysian sauce and a fried rice and take it from there. Steamed Fish filets with ginger and shallot and Sweet and Sour Pork are both amazing as well. And when the bill comes, offer to pay before you see the bill because it will impress your guests but even more, it won't break the bank. We Love Kingsford Chinese Restaurant. Just don't tell anyone...?:^)

“Great Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Great value food and definitely suit for student pocket. Deep fried squid and xo rice noodle are my favourite dishes here. However service always terrible and long queue and noisy to the max. Just come to eat and go!

“Tasty and Cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Definitely not the place for a quiet romatic evening. Old style chinese. Try the BBQ Duck, Spiced Salt and Pepper pork, just to name a few. Prices are incredibly cheap

“Very cheap food, very bad service... but people still queue...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Kingsford Chinese Restaurant provided the best tasting food for its price. There are three staple foods: Salt and Pepper calamari, Sang Tung chicken and Long Bean belacan. If you want very fast service, order those three and nothing else! Oh, and try not to complaint too much…

In this place, the owner is the queen. If you ever expressed your discontent to her, the most she’d reply would be ‘Meh’. I guess she doesn’t need snobbish customers when people still line up for her food. So, anyone from owner to waiters/waitresses doesn’t really care about you.

“heaps of quantity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

If you are looking for cheap, good food and heaps of quantity and great value for money Though it is located in a corner there is a big queue outside and gets cleared really quickly so do not panic wait for five minutes and you will be given a seat in a small tight restaurant. There are heaps of students from the University but if you want good food for a cheap price. this is it!! we invade it every week.
