Shrimp merchant lunch. I've been eating here for over 56 years. Love the tea, the atmosphere, staff.

“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Ok, I'm biased - Ive been coming here for 50 years and have never been disappointed with anything. Its been owned by the same family for years, our family has brought generations of us there for special occasions so they must be doing something right! The food is amazingly good, their menu offers a huge variety of delicious items, the staff is always friendly and polite without hovering and the prices are more than reasonable. Walking into the dining room is like stepping back in time - in a good way. Now that I'm disabled the stairs to the restaurant are a bit of a climb but whats amazing is the worn marble on each stair, I like to think of how many stories to tell those steps have seen over the decades :-) Seriously, between the food, decor, service and price, those stairs are worth the climb!

“Best Chinese in Omaha!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Excellent quality, large portions and kitchen is willing to work with special requests. The decor may be essentially the same as it was in the 1950's but that adds to the charm in my book. The same family has owned and operated it since day 1. Yōuxiù! Nothing more to say.

“Wow!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

You won't believe where you are when you climb the tall flight of steps and set foot in King Fong. You might also be forgiven if you forget what year, or even what century you are in.
This place is 90% about atmosphere and only 10% about the food or service, which is usually good but not always consistent. The egg foo young, however, is the best I have ever had.
The restaurant interior is unchanged for nearly 100 years. The owners really could turn this place into one of Omaha's finest dining experiences if they put some effort into it, but they seem uninterested in doing so. Still, this is Omaha's oldest continuously operating restaurant. Cash only!

“Pick some place else”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The place looks like it's been here decades. It kind of reminded me of some of my favorite Chinese places in San Francisco, but that's where the comparisons end. Lousy food, lousy service. I ordered the chicken with cashew nuts. Yuck! Even the egg roll was terrible.
