Average Chinese takeaway, reasonable to low prices and it stays open later than other places nearby.

When you get into this take away it fells like an assembly line, as if you cannot give exact instructions first time people will tell you off. A co worker told me it is great if you have only a short lunch break, but if you have time avoid them, however they have good bags ;-)

The service was quick and the range of food was great, but the lack of customer service means that I probably cant recommend it to others. The quality of food was nothing special, the experience would have been a lot better if the staff were more friendly

Some dishes are pretty good such as the prawns with salt, pepper and chilli and the Tom Yum soup. The roast pork and roast duck dishes are tasty and good value for money but many of the noodle dishes are pretty bland, but the portion sizes are good.

To tired to venture out, we tried a hotel room delivery for the first time ever - ordering online without a problem, the food arrived in the hotel 40 minutes later. Very good deep-fried shredded beef in chilli, sweet & sour chicken Hong Kong style, and a few other dishes. The Singapore noodles were not my favourite, as they had... More

The wittily-named Kung Food is a cheap and cheerful Chinese takeaway on the Clerkenwell Road, London EC1. It's located very close to Leather Lane which is packed with food shops and cafes. Nearest Tube is Farringdon. Kung Food does a takeaway lunchbox service with a good choice of dishes, all fresh and good quality and piping hot. The boxes are... More

I wanted to like the place just because of the name (Kung Food, classic!). However, once I tried the food, both their amazingly priced £5 lunch time special, and there evening take away menu, I was pleasantly surprised. Very good food, fairly priced and good service.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
