Dined here over 40 years ago so while passing through Saugus we thought we'd re-live the dream. Pluses - Bobby the maitre'd and Mike Y our waiter, excellent service. Our drinks, very good. Minuses - Food, lousy. Greasy, heavy, little eye appeal. We even ordered one of the so called 'chef's special' dishes, ate less than half and did not... More

Friendly polite service, potent drinks and all the standard menu items like pupu platter, sweet & sour pork, etc. A popular spot for birthday celebration and family get togethers... atmosphere was fun and festive.

Full Variety of Chinese food including Sushi. Pu Pu platters are excellent. Best Mai Tai's anywhere. Atmosphere is nice with pond, ship and grass hut booths.

Dark Pork Fried Rice with an egg in it. Fried Shrimp actually fried to order. Meaty Spare Ribs with bones. A classic flaming Pu-Pu Platter. The right duck sauce, soy sauce and hot mustard. Zombies (the drink...though the clientele was a bit sketchy). Fake palm trees and volcanoes. It doesn't get any better than this. It's all set before you... More

Kowloon Restaurant in Saugus MA always delights! FOod was great and served up fresh and quick. The drinks were potent yet tasty. The comedy show was outstanding. The Wong family always treats their guests great.

Originally from the north shore and returned to Kowloon. I can say I didn't miss much... the atmosphere was cold, the service was awful, the waitstaff didn't smile and removed my plate without asking. After dinner, took another beating by ordering a drink in the lounge, the bartendar had a frown the entire time and was not hospitable. I wouldn't... More

A+ atmosphere. besides being the largest restaurant of any kind that i have ever been to - its like stepping into a Disney themed restaurant. I was a bit nervous about it since the reviews are mixed but honestly the food was better than expected; lots of rice but plenty of meat too. the server was a bit too quick... More

Frankly this may be a Route 1 icon in Saugus but its formula has expired and this restaurant should follow the Hilltop into oblivion. I applaud the owners for their charity contributions but since they serve you unhealthy, tasteless, salty, food made from the cheapest of ingredients, they have money to share. I had the beef and broccoli with fried... More

This place is a must visit if in the area especially if you have never been there. It has that old Chinese restaurant feel with some newer updates, but the character of the place is like no other. The food and drinks are always great. Always plenty of room inside for small to very large groups. Plus a ton of... More
