I always enjoy eating here. The owner is a wonderful and friendly person. The food is very good and inexpensive. I had a hard time reading the review from the St. Louis person. If you get white rice, it is bland. Sweet and sour chicken has a dipping sauce and it is very flavorable. The chicken by itself may be bland, but not with the sauce. Do not miss this for Chinese in Charleston

Main Kwong is our favorite chinese food in town. Carina has been running the place for nearly two decades now (how does she still look 30?). The place is hugely popular and yet she not only seems to remember everyone by name but also what their usual order is. For those who want more spice, just ask. Carina will make sure the food is to your liking.

Main Kwong is definitely worth stopping by. It's mainly a carryout shop but they have 4 booths for eating there. Prices are fair and the food is tasty and fresh. Most quart sized entrées are under 10 bucks. You can watch the cooks make your meal. The lady that owns the shop is there every day! You won't find a better Chinese restaurant in Charleston; maybe Taste of Asia or Main Tin in South Charleston. Main Kwong has won best Chinese restaurant in the Kanawha Valley for years in a row.

The staff at Main Kwong is always wonderful. They will prepare a pick up order in 5 minutes! Main Kwong is, hands down, the best Chinese restaurant in Charleston and probably the state. I highly recommend the lo mein and the kung po shrimp - both are delicious!
