I have eaten here about 10 times and am never disappointed! I have recommended Kung Food to many of my friends. It has a welcoming, cozy atmosphere, while offering some of the best Asian-American food that I have ever eaten. I love this place and will continue to recommend and attend regularly.

This is an absolute must if you love Asian food or want to try it. I got the noodle dish. I'd get it 10,000 more times.

Thanks to other reviews I saw on Trip Advisor , we decided to try this restaurant in downtown Covington & it was a great choice! The food was wonderful with many many choices! A huge craft beer menu too! Definitely a great idea for lunch or supper!

This is unlike most chinese restaurants you will visit. Menu gives fun sounding names to classics, and has a reasonable number of new dishes not normally found elsewhere. Price and portion size is reasonable, in fact many people were taking home leftovers. Kind of chaotic and smaller than many restaurants, you may need to wait for a table. Or, you... More

This is a great place. The food is excellent, and they make it really spicy! No joke, their spice-scale is awesome. They also have a good beer list.

I like the decor and laid back environment. The food is okay, not amazing and the cleanliness leaves something to be desired.

While I order the same thing all the time with the spice level the same, every order tends to be different from the amount of spice actually in the dish. Different peppers appear to be used just in varying amounts, it all depends on the day of the week or who is cooking. The food is good regardless, but if... More

KungFood doesn't take it's self too seriously, except for the food. The place has posters from Kung Fu Panda, Bruce Lee and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon decorating the walls. The furniture and bar areas are casual to say the least, but the food is the best Thai style Asian food around. They have the best Hot and Sour soup I've... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to this delectable restaurant. This was our third time here. It's a small cozy spot, with dishes that are so tasty and a good amount. We have tried something new every time and we are always impressed. Look forward to returning.

Food is always good and pairs great with the craft beer on tap. Small and cozy atmosphere. If you love watching Kung fu movies. This is the place for you.
