Stopped by for lunch since it's across the street from CLC. Unfortunately I came out very disappointed. My egg drop soup was only edible, but the beef lo main was horrible. No taste whatsoever. The fried rice was also very bland. Don't waste your money and time on this place.

Arrived at the restaurant and only two other tables were seated. We were greeted, seated, and given menus right away. (was worried because we had read some negative reviews) As we were looking over the menus another server entered. We ordered crab rangoons, egg drop soup, lomein and beef with mixed vegetables. The new server took over our table. She... More

Very good entrees & super yummy egg rolls. One the the cleanest Chinese restaurants around. Service was excellent. Food prep was pretty slow but worth the wait.

I visit fongs a couple of times a month since i work nearby. The food is always fresh and hot. The combination fried rice has plenty of pork, chicken and shrimp. Its delicious! The chicken entrees are always tasty. My only complaint would be, they need to crisp up their egg rolls a bit more. All in all good eats.

The food is uninspiring, greasy and the service is poor. Chinese is supposed to be hot, crispy and fresh...their food is NOT!

We stopped at Fong's kitchen to have dinner about 10 minutes after 6pm , plenty of time to get our food before a show 1 block down the road at the Genesse Theatre at 8pm. Our sign of things to come should have been the waitress not understanding our egg roll order. Hard to mix up , but yes, a... More

My husband and I had tickets to a concert at a venue 1 block away from Fong's Kitchen. Since it was in the neighborhood of where the concert was, we decided to go to Fong's Kitchen (especially as it was a friday during lent - and couldn't have meat). HUGE MISTAKE. We were taken to our booth, ordered our drinks... More

The prices are unbeatable. Something this delicious and with this large of a serving would probably cost triple in Chicago. The edamame is a must. My food came out so quickly. The raspberry lemonade is also so delicious. I would eat here every day if I could.
