3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I like the decor and laid back environment. The food is okay, not amazing and the cleanliness leaves something to be desired. I have heard so many great reviews about this place and was excited to check it out. I don't know if they were understaffed that night or what, but it was dirty and that really grossed me out.

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.

Here is a place that the menu/website makes you want to try it. They have a very fun menu like fly rice. When you arrive, the place is tiny. They have an extensive craft beer menu and the service is prompt and polite. The prices are good too, $6.95-$9.95 average entree. But, there is where the good stops. Several dishes... More

Looks like a little NYC restaurant, storefront is rough, but interior decor is cute, crowded with happy dinners. Great wait staff who are very busy but get what you need as quickly as they can. Steamed dumplings came with a great sauce. Tried the noodle dishes because they were recommended. Will bring other back soon.

We walked over to KungFood from our hotel next to the convention center. It's a stroll that takes you through a very nostalgic time, because you see a lot of mom and pop businesses. We liked KungFood, though we didn't have the "fun" experience that everyone raves about. We just had a good meal. Our waiter was attentive enough and... More
