This was the worst food I have every eaten. When you go pick it up don't look to close. The food was an excess amount ate some and threw out the rest.

Subpar asian quisine, filthy establishment, rude rude rude staff. This use to be the place to go. But it has been really really bad for a few years now.

Excellent Chinese food. Cooked to order, served hot and tasty. Large portions to take home. No decor but I don't go for this. Try it you won't be disapointed!

Though it doesn't look like much, the Kowloon Chinese Restaurant serves up, for the most part, excellent food with fast service and at very reasonable prices. As I work nearby, I have enjoyed its food for several years now. There are over 30 combination plates available during lunch hours, all priced below $5. Each includes eggdrop soup, an eggroll, plain... More
