I used to eat at the Kenmount several times a week in the 70's. It was one of the very few excellent places in the City. My friend was involved with Graduate Studies at MUN and would be advised by Asian students of special dishes to request which she did and they made!! I knew the owners, a wonderfully kind... More

We get three orders of everything like the usual's rice, won tons, egg foo young, mixed vegetables, ribs etc...The food is consistently very good. Never a problem with quality or amounts. A lot of people don't go into the restaurant as it looks closed from... More

I have been eating at the Kenmount for fifty years. It has consistently served excellent Chinese food however, I have come to expect slow service. Saturday evening was the worst ever with regard to slowness. I was with my wife, her two sisters and there two husbands. We arrived at 6PM to find that there were two small tables and... More

I went to this place a while ago. It is a large building, and stylistically appealing on the outside. Once inside the age of the decor is evident, but that wasn't the huge problem. I ordered takeout. Chicken balls, rice, and beef and broccoli. Pretty simple staples. I called, and they said it was a thirty minute wait. Not a... More

Went here for a late supper. We were literally the only 4 people there seated. My kids were even weary off how private it was. I remember this restaurant since I was a kid decades ago. It didn,t change much. The waitress said it was the original owners son running it.I guess they,ve been doing something right this whole time.... More

We went there after reading all the reviews here and we were not disappointed! Our waitress was kind, answered our questions, etc. As for the food, the Won Ton with pork BBQ was a good starter and we all took the combo for one person. It was very very good, authentic chinese food. We rediscovered the chinese food! Don't look... More

Never judge a book by its cover...especially the Kenmount Restaurant. My husband and I went for a weekday lunch date. We pulled into the parking lot and it was empty. We would have been deterred but friends had highly recommended it so we went ahead it. The decor is dated but its authentic and retro! It is not your typical... More

Felt like we were going back in time... super authentic and original interior, totally empty but the beauty is you have a private meal... wait staff are helpful and food is well-priced, authentic and delicious.
