From the moment you pull up, the place doesn't look very appealing, in fact it needs a lot of work, a little TLC can go along way. With that being said, we had lunch there and the food was very tasty, service was really good,...More

I went in today with the expectation of what I had years ago growing up from this place. What I will say is that my main dish was above average slightly. My hot & sour soup was warm when it came out and that was...More

We discovered this restaurant as we stayed in Knoxville on our drive home, and very glad that we did. The food was EXCELLENT, we loved the food, it's real authentic Chinese food, not the "modern" Chinese food, but the real thing! The place looks like...More

Haven't eaten there in years and after eating there tonight, I remember why ! The place looks like it should be condemned. How the health board hasn't shut this place down yet is a mystery. I'll never eat here again

Plum Tree is my favorite chinese restaurant. It is in the old Long John Silver's building on Kingston Pk. I have never gotten a bad meal here. The Wonton Soup and sweet and sour chicken are my favorite things to get here.

I was going to Plum Tree often back from 1990 until around 2000-2001 the food was awesome, you got a good pile of food for a good price, the only place I liked the sweet & sour chicken. We live in Straw Plains so don't...More

We dated there along time ago. It's a former Long John Silvers building from way back that has been the Plum Tree for at least two decades. Like, Altruda's for the best Italian around, go there for the little party of 4 booths and inexpensive,...More

We were looking forward to having some great Chinese but this was not the place to have it. Their hot-and-sour soup and wonton soup were very good. But the duck was dried out and the shrimp in lobster sauce very bland.
