“Still a great place to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Had lunch there for the first time in more than 30 years. The restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. The food was also very good. I ordered the Chicken Subgum Chow Mein with Egg Foo Yung. The only thing I didn't like was the egg rolls which tasted odd and were heavily fried.

“A must-do experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

King Fong's is an Omaha landmark. I believe it opened sometime in the late 1910s. Walking up the stairs and going into this second floor restaurant is like going through a time machine. Not only is it a "must-see," the food (Cantonese) is excellent. Don't expect spicy Hunan or Szechwan, but if you like mild Cantonese, it is great. We've been going there for more than 30 years.

“Good food, historic facility”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

Food and service was good. But the facility is a historic treasure. Antique hand carved wood panelling, pagoda chandeliers that were originally gas fired but renovated to use lightbulbs, tile floor, tin ceiling.

“Still here after all these years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2010

I have been going here for 35 years and am still in love with the place. It is like walking back in time when you enter. The food is great. The lunch specials are very reasonably priced and the portions are huge. I usually get another whole meal from my leftovers.

“One thing I miss about Omaha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2009

Seems weird to write this, but Chinese restaurants on the West Coast have been a letdown after I got accustomed to King Fong's ambience. I always enjoyed the food too.
