“I don’t order Chinese food often, because I feel like most take-out spots have more Americanized offerings, but Kung Food was GREAT. The menu is expansive and the quality is really good. I ordered the Mongolian beef, dry-fried string beans, and a couple of other dishes. Everything was flavorful and the portions are large enough to last a few meals. I ordered take out this time, but it’s also in a very walkable location so not bad to pick up either. Definitely my new Chinese take-out spot!” – James B.

When there’s not a pandemic, the inside looked like a fun place to shop around and buy things.
