Everyone has got to say they went to the creator of Cashew Chicken to enjoy it in its original form. The Cashew Chicken is Very Good and a big portion. The Crab Rangoon and Egg Rolls are. Must try. I heard many say Great things about General Chicken but will have to review next time. They have Happy Hour Drink... More

We eat at Leong's regularly. The food and service are always excellent. We always ask for Ryan. He's the the most enjoyable server we have had at any restaurant.

Enjoyed a wonderful family lunch for 4 at Leongs Asian Diner. We started off with the appetizer platter of ribs, pot stickers, pork, egg roll and crab Rangoon. Main courses included Cashew Chicken (the Springfield way), lo mein and pad Thai. Great place to actually taste the food with spices to you liking. Service was very attentive, even at lunch... More

We wanted to go to this restaurant after it was featured in a documentary. The food was delicious and we were able to try the famous Springfield chicken!

We did start with the appetizer sampler platter .. great selections and we thought everything was very tasty and flavorful. We both ordered the Cashew Chicken ..all white meat with fried rice. The chicken was nicely prepared .. fried .. not greasy and... More

They screwed up an order and called back to let them know. I could over hear the manager, rudely, tell the cashier they will put my name on a list or come back tonight. I said I came a long way to pick up the food. Manager again " put the name on the list" They immediately hung up the... More

We will NEVER go to Leong's again. We placed an order to go and did not get what we ordered and paid for so I called the manager. The Manager offered no apology and hung up on me. Their food is overpriced for what you get. Chicken was dry - terrible.

A MUST do in Springfield. The original Springfield-style Cashew Chicken. My husband explains it is the blend of good chicken, light breading, tenderly prepared with true spring onions and cashews plus the sauce - special sauce. He got that and I tasted it. (I am not a fan of Chinese food.) I had chicken and lo mein. My serving was... More

Food was affordable and not that great tasting. This was the first "Asian" themed restaurant where I saw no Asians as employees, so that and the full bar should've warned me that this place wasn't going to be authentic to "Asian" cuisine. Service was good, and place was clean. Wouldn't go again. Felt tricked into thinking this was an Asian... More
