Kum Kau possesses great food and service, which is an excellent combination. I would recommend their Tai Chin Chicken. For those who are vegetarians, just request the Tai Chin Sauce with tofu.

this place rates because when it counts they are ACTUALLY open. Yes, you have to walk and pick it up...but its worth it since the other neighborhood fools close their doors at noon. NOTE TO FOOLS: keep longer hours. Then maybe youd be successful. Its a service industry...learn to serve!

I have lived two blocks from this landmark all my life and eat here at least twice a week. The food here is outstanding and the service is usually fast for me (I call). I feel like a local celebrity walking into this place, as my food is ready for me as soon as I walk through the doors. They know their food is the best as they are the only Chinese restaurant that does not offer delivery service. Many people from all 5 boroughs come here to eat the best Chinese food as evident on the Weekends, as the place gets packed.

I have been going to Kum Kau for years. The food is always very good. I was quite please when they opened the dining room. I went there today to eat-in and they have made the dining room even nicer than I remember (I usually get take-out) I highly recommend this neighborhood eatery.

Kum Kau has long been one of the best Chinese restaurants in New York. Many years ago they were just a tiny place but once the word got out about how great their food was, they expanded and took over a good portion of the surrounding area to open a sit down restaurant and a residential building for the workers to live in. The food is always fresh tasting and they give you a lot of it. Try their hot & spicy shrimp (about $9) but everything on the menu is excellent (to die for dumplings - not too greasy and good spring rolls). The best deal are the lunch specials - good portions at half the price. NEVER just walk in for a pickup. Call ahead and your order will be ready in 10 - 15 minutes, otherwise it could be a bit of a wait.

It's been hustle and bustle in this place since it opened in the mid 70's. Kum Kau has gone through several renovations and expanded it's dining room. It out of this park, good stuff. Worth the trip. Great food. What the others around the neighborhood strive to be. Don't bother trying any of the others out. Their's no point. I've made trips from New Jersey to eat at this place!

Honestly, the best chinese-american food in brooklyn. Pickup only (there's an eat-in seating area, but most people pick-up - no delivery). The fact that there's no delivery and yet it's still crowded all the time shows you that it's some of the freshest chinese food around. You can actually identify what you're eating - it's not smothered in goo (unless it's moo goo gai pan). Get the general tso's shrimp...super freakin' yummy.
