Having grown up in and around chinese restaurants, this place reminded me of my childhood. Terrible decor, mismatched furniture, typically abrupt Cantonese middle aged waitresses but I loved it. I was given the "lai tong" which is like the soup of the day (carrots and lotus root in a stock) when I came in and seated at the back. It... More

I love eating here! Great food and always looked after week with the great but no frills service. The food is spot on. Tasty and fresh. If you are staying in the premier inn Holborn you should eat here!

We went there with 8 friends for dinner. Having just come back from Singapore and HK a few days before going to Kam Fung I was skeptical on how good it would be. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. A few vegetarians in the group were also impressed with the food and range on the menu.... More

Prawns are the best have... More

Came with a group on a weekend and was accommodated well on the phone and the table was waiting for us on time. The food was great (perhaps a little MSGish..) but the staff good and it did what it said on the tin! Helpings were enormous.

The satay was cold, the sauce didn't even taste like peanut satay the rice was so bland and their prawn crackers tasted like they were a week old... More

Good food, plenty of it and reasonably priced. Good and helpful service who were willing & able to create meals that are not on the menu.

Me and my colleague came her in June 2016 for our lunch, the food was lovely, service was good. Fast service I was not kept long before I got seen to. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves Chinese food and do not want to wait around for a long time

Great little gem. Always busy. Lovely food. Pleasant staff. We go for the fake meat dishes which are so good. Hard to tell its not real chicken or duck.
