So I didn't take a picture of my carry out because I was starving but this Kung Pow Chicken was better than any expectation I had! The call in order took only 10mins. When I arrived the owner was SO out of his way nice and personable and funny! When I got home the food was steaming hot. The rice... More

Ordered and waited for carry out noodle dishes. They were badly prepared and flavorless. Dishes I saw served while I was waiting looked and smelled amazing. I had high hopes for my food and it was as if it came from a different restaurant entirely. I don't understand. I haven't returned because there are so many other choices for lunch... More

This has been THE worst dining experience I have ever experienced in my LIFE! I also had a groupon and decided to try this place. I ordered the emperor's dumplings, beef and scallops, and chicken lo mein. The d dumplings and beef and scallops were just ok. Definitely not the best I've had. The chicken lo mein was terrible. It... More

Po's is as good as any in Kansas City when you're talking about the taste and quality of the food. I've been eating there for nearly 10 years, I lived in the neighborhood and could just walk up and enjoy delicious Asian fare, authentic Chinese and of course, dumplings. I moved a year ago and have been disappointed with all... More

Not the greatest service when we went and it wasn't busy at all. The entrees we had were very good and we liked it enough that we would go again. The Kung Pao Chicken was excellent! If you are in the area be sure to give them a try.

Your not paying for atmosphere folks, close to KU Med Center. The Food was outstanding. I ordered Chicken in Black Bean Sauce. Truly a delight. Sooooo good. Lots of food too. Outstanding Asian cuisine. Truly enjoyed this restaurant and would encourage you to try it.

My fiancé and I had a Groupon for Po's, and she had never tried Chinese dumplings before. Likewise, we had never eaten at Po's before. It was fairly easy to find (in a well-known food district). If you are not accustomed to this type of parking (along the streets/parallel parking), you should probably get a cab, walk, or wingsuit in,... More

We read reviews that were about 50/50, so we decided to try ourselves (using a Groupon) on a Friday afternoon. We were seated and waited on immediately. The food and service were very good. We experienced no trouble using a Groupon. We would go to Po's again!

A decent size bug was in our food. When we told the server of the issue, she asked us if we wanted our check. We walked out. This will be the last time we EVER go to Po's Dumpling Bar.

Two of us went in on a Saturday evening for dinner. The dining room was about half full. We were quickly greeted by a young man who took our drink order. Both had the "house" drink. A rum concoction delivered in a Tiki-style cup. Good drink. We shared a couple appetizers and split entrees. The food was delivered fairly timely... More
