Best Family Restaurants – This is the best family restaurants ever. Their foods are one of the best Chinese foods I have ever tasted, and the price, well it's not so bad compared to other restaurants. The portions are extremely big, my wife and I brought our three kids in and we ordered the number 7 for 4, thinking that well our littlest probably wouldn't eat that much so we would probably have enough for all of us. To my surprise we did have enough, and we had a lot more left. We didn't think that there's any Chinese food restaurant that serve this much food. So maybe next time, I'll just order it for 3. Oh and one the thing that I absolutely enjoyed was their new walnut shrimp, it was 8 jumbo shrimp and their sauce was absolutely wonderful, the server told me that it was only 8.99 and i figured that it's a pretty good deal.
Really enjoyed our Experience. Great Service, Great Prices, Great Food! Favorite place in town! – My Husband and I have recently learned about the kowloon cafe and have quickly become regular customers. The thing that make them our favorite chinese food restaurant is that they are always consistent in both their service and their food. Most other chinese restaurants we have been to in the past have greatly varied in this area and are not as consistent with the Kowloon Cafe. Additionally, to our pleasant surprise, we learned that they opened a new location out in Sandy. We visited their new location in Sandy and are very fond of that location as well. The food taste great and the new restaurant has a upscale, clean, and cozy feel that makes dining in very relaxing and enjoyable. The main kowloon cafe in west valley has a more cozy yet historical feel to the dining experience (been there for over 25 years i believe). Regardless of the location, Kowloon Cafe will always be my family and friends top choice in chinese cuisine. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Couple of our personal favorites are the Sesame Chicken, Shrimp Lobster Sauce, Combination Fried Rice, and Special Chow Mien Cantonese Style.
Worst customer service ever – I didn't even get to eat my dinner until after 8:30 pm tonight because of the horrible customer service at this place. Our favorite chinese place had closed and so I was trying out Kowloon as a new Chinese takeout spot. We placed an order over the phone and I went to pick it up and everything was fine until I got home. I pulled out one of the egg foo yung patties and started to cut it up for my son and noticed that there was chunks of meat in it. Which would be ok except that we ordered vegetable egg foo yung because my kids and I are all vegetarians. So my husband took the two orders of egg foo yung back to them, and then they wanted to charge him over $10 because we didn't bring back the patty that was already cut up. Unbelievable! I couldn't believe that they were being that petty over one egg foo yung patty. I spoke to the counter guy on the phone and told him if it was that important, that I would bring it back. They insisted that because we didn't have all six patties that they would charge us. So I scooped up all the egg foo yung patty pieces, put it in a ziploc baggie and grabbed all of the other food that we hadn't eaten yet, and threw all three kids in the car to go back over to Kowloon Cafe. I took them back the ziploc with the cut up patty in it and the other food we had ordered as well. They refunded my money, but that was a small consolation given that I had three hungry kids and two hungry adults and no dinner yet. So we went across the street to Greek Souvlaki, which is great food and has really good customer service, completely unlike the Kowloon Cafe. So for the price of one little egg foo yung patty they could have made a customer for life but instead chose to be petty jerks and got an enemy instead. The manager or owner or whoever he is really needs to work on that whole customer service thing because it's pretty ridiculous to throw that big of a fit over something so small, I really could not believe it. I'd give negative stars if I could!!
Great food – I love this place. It looks like an unassuming little cafe. Some would say "hole in the wall". But the food is incredible.
I've actually been eating here since childhood (when they were at the old building).
When I moved out of state and came back to visit I would always stop to eat there at least once & found myself craving their food when I was living hundreds of miles away.
Great for family night out – I recently moved to this city from Dallas a couple of months ago and I have been passing by this place on my way to work. One day I decided to do a take-out after work, I ordered a couple of things from their menu to try out their food, and I must say that their foods are incredible. This place is probably one of the best Chinese-American Restaurant in the state. So, later on during the weekend I brought my family here, it was busy, which was a good sign; it took them a few minutes to seat us, which was understandable. Their foods were great and it had huge portions, we ordered the family combination number 5 for 3. It was enough for me, my wife and our two kids, and we still had plenty of leftovers to take home. One suggestion though, during the weekend it would be better to make a reservation ahead of time if you have a large party.
BEST RESTAURANT EVERRR – Seriously people. It's the best Chinese place i've ever been to. Amazing service, good food, pretty ladies :). They do their best to provide fast service and good food. They succeed in it. Sure, there's going to be somebody that has a bad experience there, but maybe it's the person, not the restaurant. Even those who do have a bad experience there, keep coming back. Thats saying something huh.
Best Szechuan Beef anywhere – I came to this restaurant out of a recommendation from my friend. He said to try out the sweet and sour chicken, so i did. The sweet and sour chicken was pretty okay in my opinion, but what has gotten me to come back to this restaurant was their Szechuan Beef. It was really delicious, even though it's pretty much just different types of onions and beef, but the sauce is incredible. If you want you can get it cantonese style, which is $1.00 more to add some soft chow mein noodles in it, you'll lose the white rice that usually comes with it but it's worth it. You won't see the option doing it cantonese style in the menu, but if you ask the waiter/waitress, he/she will say that you can do it that way. In Conclusion, whenever I go to Kowloon the first thing I ordered is always their Szechuan Beef Cantonese Style.
Great Food – Excellent Food! I drove past this place a few times and heard so much about it .. finally i was able to bring my family in and try it out for myself. I must say i am Impressed. The food taste great and the portions are huge. My wife and i had chinese and our kids enjoyed the chicken strips and fries off their childrens menu.
I will definitely be going back and recommending this place to my friends.
Great Chinese Food ! – My wife and i are frequently in search of good Chinese food and i think we found it! We recently came across a restaurant called Kowloon Cafe located near the E center in salt lake city and i must say the service and food was excellent and best of all.. it was at a reasonable price. The portions are very large and it taste great!
DO NOT GO HERE!!!! – This place is HORRIBLE!!! They basically serve some kind of meat with this gelatinous, gooey sauce. There is no flavor to anything....not even the rice! Save yourselves! Do not, ever, go to this restaurant.
