Good overall experience – Very friendly owner and staff. Nice and dark with candles and dark wood, great for taking a client or date to. Try starting with the pan-fried pork dumplings and dip them in a mixture of red chili oil and soy sauce. For your main course, go with the Young Chow Fried Rice, add red chili oil, black pepper and soy sauce, and you're good to go! I agree with an earlier reviewer that the food isn't strongly seasoned, but I wouldn't say it's bland, either.
Meh, Overrated – The reviews got me excited, but I was let down.
We got eggrolls, soup, kung poa, and lo mein. All were very bland and not really exciting whatsoever. The food was fresh and hot, and the service was very warm and welcoming though. Not bad food, just not what I crave when I want some chinese since it just doesn't have enough flavor.
Overrated – Our party of 4 recently had dinner at Kam's. The prices seemed higher than other chinese restaurants we have been to recently. When the food was served the summer roll appetizer was totally tasteless with a peanut dipping sauce that tasted like diluted peanut butter. Our main courses were no better. My orange beef was so sweet I thought I was eating dessert. My wife's duck was dry and w/o flavor. The other 2 entrees were called "blaah." The good news was that the portions were small so that we didn't have to suffer too much.
This isn't a bad restaurant but it surely isn't the jewel that the other user reviews would suggest.
BTW the ladies were not impressed by the unisex bathroom.
Chinese Food Haven :o) – I've been living in Houston for 2 years and tried alot of Chinese/Vietnamese places. I went last night and ate at Kam's at the recommendation of a good friend. Needless to say, I was definitely NOT disappointed. I'm only sorry it took me this long to find a good place. Delicious food and attentive but not intrusive service. Everything that was ordered was fresh, hot and true Cantonese cuisine!
Consistently good and inexpensive Chinese favorite in Montrose. – In Short
Houstonians who love Cantonese Chinese food and other traditional Asian stir-fry and vermicelli options would be hard-pressed to find a better combination of quality, attentive service and price than Kam's. The ho fan dish (wide egg noodles) is popular with the longtime regulars, as are Chinese garlic green beans and pan-fried pork dumplings. Despite its sparse decor, this Montrose neighborhood spot is consistently crowded for its dependable lunch and dinner fare.
always great! – We eat here at least 2 times a week and are NEVER disappointed! The food is awesome- the pork dumplings worth the trip alone! Awesome veggie options- eggplant rocks! The prices are great- the service is always right on target !
I cant say enough good about this place! Go EAT THERE!! You'll go back again and again!
The BEST Chinese Food in Houston! – Kam's is the best place for Chinese food in Houston. I go there at least once a week after work or call in for a take out order for lunch. The pan-fried pork dumplings are out of this world! I recommend the Ho Fan or Ginger Beef dishes, but every dish is great. The service is quite enjoyable and prompt.
Consistently good – I eat at Kam's almost every week. They have consistently good food. I've tried many of the dishes on their menu and like almost all of them. My favorite is the Singapore Vermicelli.
The service is usually pretty good, but can be a little slow if it's very crowded.
Decor is nothing spectacular, but the food speaks for itself.
Homemade flavor in a restaurant – Now this is food with flavor. The service can be spotty, depending on who's on staff that day/night, but more often than not, I enjoy my time there. Definitely have the pan-fried pork dumplings and young chow fried rice. Try adding some soy sauce with red chili to each, and you will not be disappointed.
Best Dumplings in Houston – The best dumplings in town! The make your own sauce is really tasty, a really neat way to eat!
