Some of the best Cantonese food in town – I'm surprised at the horrible reviews preceding mine because in my experience Fung's Kitchen is the one Chinese restaurant I can rely on for great food all the time. The Peking duck is second to none, and the orange ribs are finger licking good. Fung's is by far my favorite dim sum place in Houston. Always packed to the hilt on weekends with a wait, they have some of the best variety of dishes on their dim sum menu as well as the best tasting. Most restaurants have their staple steamed dumplings and fried items, but Fung's goes step further and has some unusual dishes flying that I don't see at other restaurants. Don't believe all the bad reviews, the food here really IS good.
The menu is huge, so ask a server for suggestions if you're unsure. Weekend dim sum gets packed, and for great reason, it's awesome.
I want this food all the time – Fung's Kitchen is amazing. I first came here in a group of about 8 people, we got probably 5 meals and just shared, it was incredible. Everyone has plenty to eat as the plate sizes are fairly large and the food is so good! As soon as you think you've tasted the best Chinese food ever you taste another dish and your mind is changed! I cannot even eat hot and sour soup anywhere else anymore, I just can't enjoy it.
I Hate Fung's – This restaurant has decent food, but everything is overpriced. Even worse, service was ridiculously terrible. My fiancée and I had our families do a meet-and-greet in one of the private rooms at Fung's, and we could not regret it more. The staff at Fung's was incredibly rude and extremely persistent in pushing food down our throats. Apparently a private room is only allowed to customers who spend at least $250 on their meal. While we were putting in the first half of our order, our waitress kept pushing us to put in multiple orders of the same dish to meet their limit. Her English was bad enough to begin with, but her constant mention of the low spending limit worked my last nerve. Not only that, but she kept rubbing her butt up against my arm and shoulder as she was reaching across the table..lucky me. As we finished our meal, a waiter was sent in to sell us desserts. We all politely declined, but he insisted on for about five minutes. He even leaves and returns wielding a cart of Asian deserts. Although we had spent the amount required, the staff at Fung's continued to be rude and pestered us to order more. I am extremely disappointed by both the level of food quality and service for the amount of money we spent. This may have been the worst Chinese restaurant experience I have ever faced. Thank you Fung's for making our families' meeting infamously memorable.
used to be better – used to be a great restaurant. for some reason, just don't feel it anymore now. don't know if they changed chefs or what.
Do Not Book Wedding Reception Here!!! – I reserved my wedding reception 1 yr in advance. 1 week prior to my reception, they confirmed 2 times with me regarding the wedding menu I picked. On the day of my reception, the manager had turned in the WRONG menu. I chose the next to the most expensive menu, but he put in the cheapest menu out of all. I was so embarrassed at the food they brought out for my guests. Although they charge me the cost for what they served, my guests said their food taste like S**T! I would NEVER pick this kind of food for my guest at my wedding! Know how they reimbursed me for their mistake besides saying sorry? Gave me $100 gift certificate to their damn restaurant. Can't believe they want me to go back there again after they ruined the most special day of my life. I had to take my friends & family out to eat after my reception to make up for the lousy food they served. Never book wedding reception with them, espcially don't believe all the crap their manager, Minh, said! I wouldn't rate their restaurant any star........Too bad I HAVE to give them 1 star to post my message! Piece of crap for such a well-known Chinese restaurant!!!
Terrible service; Glass in food – What made it unique or special?I am Asian and would never EVER recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service is utterly atrocious. The first time I went to this restaurant was for weekend Dim Sum. The service was terrible then, but I thought that maybe it was just that particular day. It took months before I was willing to try the place again. When I did, it was even worse than the first time. Besides the fact that the food is only mediocre at best compared with other dim sum spots in Houston, the servers were all EXTREMELY rude. I placed my dim sum order and only ever received 1 dish in the one and a half hours I sat at my table with my husband. The hostess came out and showed me my order and stated that they brought everything that I ordered out already, but the order sheet clearly showed someone had scribbled over my other orders. She asked me what I wanted and I told her that the items she scribbled out was what I wanted. At this point, I had to leave because it took so long to get my food that I told her never mind. She brought a different dish out for me to eat right away as an apology that they didn't give me what I wanted. I bit into a dumpling where there were bits of GLASS. I immediately asked to speak with a manager but the manager refused to see me. I asked to get my check and they charged me for the full price of everything I did not even receive. I was furious and every server, hostess, manager -- you name it -- avoided coming out to talk to me. I decided it was not worth my time to argue at that time since I had to get to a business meeting and so I paid the exact amount on the check on the counter and left.
Service Needs Improvement – Felt like I was being ignored where the two tables around me had lots of attention. No one checked back to see if I needed anything. I had to waive to waitress or waiter to get anything. Had to go to front counter to request my check. Second time this happenned.
Worst place ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! – They were hosting 2-3 wedding parties, which made them short on staff. I had a big group of 20, but they were fast with drinks....caution the cups were very small, no free refills on soda nor tea, (they didn't mention that). Food was way to pricey for the food they served. Food was not great at all. I agree about the specialty rice was horrible. I had shrimp with cashews and it had no flavor at all, the cashews tasted old. Husband had sizzling beef taste was ok but portion was very small only had a few beef strips and tons of onions. Everyone ordered different plates and the only ones happy were my kids they ordered sweet and sour chicken, but they didn't like the rice:(. The waitress was very rude and could hardly understand her when she was explaining some of the dishes. There are a lot of chinese restaurants 100 times better. Will never go again, nor will I ever recommend this place to anyone. Save your money and time.
Service is horroible!!!!!! – I went to Fung's at 1/26/09, i was sitting at the corner table, first of all i think the restaurant is pretty, but then i had been wait for like 15 mins, finally there's a chinese lady with a tail on her hair show up to had my drinks, then i tried to ask her something about the veggies dish, and she was so rude to answer my question, after we finish my dinner, then i trid to get my bills but she was disappear, i had to walked up to to front desk to ask the hostess to see where is my waitress. Well, the food is taste great, so i will come back and try again, but for sure i wont let her to serve me again!!
terrible restaurant – Never ever go back to this restaurant ... they serve a terribe fried rice. I guess the worst in the country ... watch food lover ... whaTCH out open YOUR EYES ... THE MANAGER ALSO IS TERRIBLE
