We ordered the $29.99 dinner for two. We had enough food for leftovers. Your choice of soup, entree' and dessert. I suggest the house-made mango cake with mango ice cream. The cheesecake we've had in the past was old and dry.

We went to Leong's to celebrate a family birthday. We arrived around 5 pm and there was only 1 other table. There were many servers walking around yet no one was helping us. Finally when we received service it went downhill from there. Drinks were not refilled, it took over 45 min for our soup, another 25 min for Crab... More

Always searching for a Chinese restaurant that equals the one in my home town, we tried Leong's. The sampler appetizer selection was wonderful. I had the Cashew Chicken. It was very good except I was expecting it to be a sweet dish. My husband had the Sweet and Sour Chicken and it too was very good. It is worth going... More

Leong’s Asian Diner is owned by the son of David Leong who created the cashew chicken dish in Springfield, MO. Mr Leong’s is a great American story and the tradition continues. If you are in the area you should take the time to eat at this diner.

For years my husband has talked about how the cashew chicken in MO is diffident and so delicious. So, on a trip through we found this place. He loves the cashew chicken, but all of our meals were delicious. Service was prompt and good.

I was skeptical about going to this place and stayed that way as I walked by t-shirts for sale while being seated. Once the food arrived I did one of the fastest 180's that I've ever done. The food is amazing, AMAZING! Some of the most flavorful Asian food I've eaten, and I've eaten a lot! The War Won Ton... More

We were searching for Springfield Cashew Chicken which was the best we have eaten. Loved the food and the value. However, we had an exceptionally rude hostess who could not figure out how to put a high chair at a table. She was more concerned about the fire code than welcoming guests to eat. Made our visit tense and unwelcoming.... More

We have dined at Leongs on previous visits to Springfield because they can handle allergy requirements (gluten- and dairy-free) and also serve the best Cashew Chicken in Springfield. My wife loves Pad Thai and Leongs listened to her allergy specifics and crafted an amazing dish. This gets even better when you consider this is not our first visit, but the... More
