The strip mall is unimpressive and run down. The interior looks like somebody's idea of a bad Chinese joke from about 50 years ago. For some reason they send out a guy in an apron to greet you who speaks no English.. We love it!! Whenever we have out of towners we take them to the city that care forgot... More

The food here is good and very inexpensive. The atmosphere is a different story. Very dated and old inside. Ceiling look like it has been through a war. Yuck! Needs updating. Very inexpensive lunch specials!

Being local has it's benefits. The lunch special is so much food at a reasonable price, you can't beat it. Pick up & go is the usual way we do dinner, but when we can, lunch is the way to go. I've read other reviewers having problems with the decor, building, staff, etc..My advice, get over it, and just enjoy... More

This is a cheap little run down, family owned spot. It's not too clean and the staff are not too efficient - I think the family work the tables themselves. The best is a young girl who usually sits in there doing her homework and helps out every once in a while or stops to translate. Food is not bad.... More

Locals and regulars love this place! Giant portions and fabulous prices! What it lacks in atmosphere, it makes up for in service and quality! The menu is expansive and the choices are endless. Over the years, we have tried it all and there have been few, if any, disappointments. We gladly recommend Kam Lun if your are looking for a... More

I work in Desert Hot Springs and decided to give Kam Lum Chinese restaurant a try after reading a few reviews on TA. The place is very plain in terms of decor as others have pointed out. Nothing special but looks clean. It is in a small strip center just east of Palm Drive. They is a rather good sized... More

Crappy decor, supper slow service is only complemented by great food and cheap prices. If you want Chinese in DHS this is the go to place. No need to dress up pajamas might be a good choice to sleep in while waiting for service (:
