We chose this restaurant for their Gluten Free options. Food was good but not great. Service was very good. It was extremely expensive for lunch with just 2 basic plates. Had to pay quite a bit for tea which is usually included. Good GF option but no somewhere I would go only for the food

From the roast duck to the shrimp toast to the seaweed in sesame oil, everything we tried, we loved. And we even ordered Beef Chow Tee off of the menu and were not disappointed. This place has some of the best Chinese food in the Midwest. And best of all, the bill at the end of the meal was tiny... More

There were six of us, ranging from 12 to 79 and all had a great time with the delicious and variety-filled menu.

We had been told that Bo Ling's was the place for dim sum and that on the weekends the place was packed with all the dim sum. Unfortunately, we were there on a Monday, so we only able to sample some of the treats. The food was very tasty, and the service was excellent. We tried several dim sum selections... More

We had lunch at Bo Ling's in the River Market. It was a lovely space and accommodating waitstaff. They graciously agreed to make my dining companion gluten-free cashew chicken (off the menu), which she thoroughly enjoyed. My orange peel chicken was delicious as well. The bathrooms are in a shared space-and not enough of them. A small inconvenience that would... More

The one and only bright spot on my visit was the hostess. She was smiling and even noticed my server had not visited me yet and came and took my drink order. I though this was going to be a great experience but it quickly went to being horrible. I ordered the szechuan steamed pork dumplings as an appetizer. The... More

I went to Boling's twice this week and had rude, unhelpful servers and hosts both times. The first trip our server did not greet us, did not check up on us at all although it was not busy, and seemed put out that we were there. The second time we went we had a group of 7 people and ended... More

Years ago Bo Lings opened a restaurant near Naples, Florida but found the business to be too seasonal to continue operations. I told them if I ever get to Kansas City I will be sure and eat at their downtown location. I was not disappointed one bit once tasting just the first bite of their home made pork egg rolls!...

This placed was ranked at a top Chinese restaurant by USA Today 10+ years ago. It's not excellent at everything and I think it's know for it's dim sum. I had the hot and sour soup and a pork/shrimp combo dish and they were both just okay.

Never thought I would ever find a good Chinese restaurant in KC, but I did in Bo Lings. Their noodle dishes have the perfect Wok Hei (essence of the wok, that light smokey flavor) which is how I judge a good Chinese restaurant. Their black bean chicken was equally good, the sauce although dark in color was surprisingly light and... More
