I have enjoyed everything I have tasted from here and the general tso's is some of the best in NY. I get all white meat in the general tsos chicken and a generous portion of broccoli comes with the order as well. if you order take-out be prepared to wait a long time especially on weekends so call in advance.

While I do appreciate their late hours and very efficient operation (tip: call ahead), I've now tried about 20 things on their menu and have never thought any of it was very good. I understand this is American-style Chinese food, but even those menu items like General Tso's chicken which should be decent at this sort of establishment are just like everything else: gloppy, indistinct chunks of mystery meat with overcooked vegetables and syrupy sauce. If that's your thing, you might like this place more than me.

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.
