Don't bother with the Western menu (which is a good menu), go straight to the real Chinese options. Authentic food, friendly and helpful staff, no rush to give up your table when you've eaten. The place was jammed and mostly with Asian customers. Be brave and try something new. Will most definitely return.

I went to Ka Ka Lok last week and the food was absolutely terrific. Clearly, they source their food well and have the correct equipment to cook it properly.

Food Faultless...soft shell crab starter could not be better. Attentiveness of staff was impecible (very helpful without being over-bearing).

I do understand the comments re atmosphere being a little quiet, but, for anyone that considers themselves a fan of Chinese grub, this is an absolute must.

Now top of my list for Glasgow...can't wait to get back.

Visited with family for a birthday and the food was incredible. Have the choice between authentic Chinese or westernised Chinese.

We had pork, beef and chicken between us an all were as tasty as each other.

The resturaunt isnt licenced but there is a shop a few doors down. Will definitely be going a lot more often.

Visited late on a Friday, and managed to get a table no problem! The food was absolutely delicious, we ordered two starters. two mains, rice & noodles to share between the two of us... We could have easily fed four! The good was lovely and fresh. Bill with soft drinks was £38, which I thought was incredibly reasonable considering how much food we had!
Salt & chilli starter was amazing, as was the sizzling king prawn!

The only small downside is the no alcohol, however as I have read on here you're welcome to bring your own!

Definitely worth a visit!

Lost count of how many times we have been to Ka Ka Lok now, it is always fabulous! The staff are very welcoming and make us feel comfortable. This time we went for my mother's birthday with some of her friends and our family, including children - we all agreed it was amongst some of the best food we have had outside China. The soft shell crab is stunning! With the byob policy and no corkage it meant we could bring some decent wine and it is a very affordable meal. Every time we go, we notice it is becoming fuller and fuller and obviously word is getting around (not suprisingly). I cannot reccomend it highly enough!
