The food was good. We had the lunch special with soup and entree. Obviously this place does mostly take-out, but we ate in. Even though we ate in, we were given styrofoam cups and disposable silverware and containers. We asked for water, but the waitress said we could only buy bottled water and she would not serve us tap water;... More

After a long day of driving heading home from Myrtle Beach, we decided to grab some Chinese takeout to bring to the hotel. We ordered the combination dinners - one for each member of our family of five. We got the sweet and sour chicken, chicken with garlic sauce, shrimp lo mein, moo shu pork, and pork lo mein. All...

Though the restaurant isn't fancy, Main Kwong, has delicious, high quality food with lots of mixed vegetables. They are very receptive to special orders/deletions of items.

This is the best Chinese food in Charleston!!!!! They are always friendly and just recently remolded to give plenty of room for dinning. Try there crispy chicken and a egg roll!! It's the absolute best. The owner always remembers what I like and is happy to see my family

This was the first time I have ever dined-in at the restaurant. Have purchased take-out on multiple occasions. Very clean environment. Super friendly and attentive service. Good quality food. There is a small side-lot for parking off street. Plenty of room in dining area to accommodate larger groups. Affordable cuisine. Overall great experience! We look forward to returning.

Absolutely delicious. Their sesame chicken is off the chain. We do takeout at least once a month. Inside everyone is super nice. Great for a bite when you are downtown.

I used to order Main Kwong a lot when I worked at the hospital but quit there in 2007. I live over an hour away so don't get to eat there anymore. I was scheduled in Charleston for wisdom teeth extraction and thought what better soft food after surgery than rice. Main Kwong was the first place I thought of... More
