We've been coming to Kam Fung for many years now and it's always great food. The ladies are welcoming and it's a friendly place to be. The food is always tasty and portions are generous. We love it here!

I have been coming to the Kam Fung for around 30 years. From the outside it looks nothing special - but the food is just brilliant. I have bought friends from all over the world to the Kam Fung (including Hong Kong Chinese) & they...More

Been eating here for many years as always food was of a high quality and good value. Now sadly has declined, as not so tasty.

Kam Fung is a small place tucked away in London. You are greeted with a warm polite smile. Service is really quick and the food is cooked beautifully. Prices not bad for London either. Well worth a look.

You can tell a good ethnic restaurant as you walk in by the people dining there. This restaurant obviously serves the local Chinese residents! Don't be put off by the lack of fancy decoration (you don't pay for that) The greeting was very friendly and...More

Had an enjoyable meal. Good service and excellent food. Aromatic duck with pancakes was a treat and enjoyed by the whole family.

Bit of a mixed meal. Very busy, service good. Highs were the starters of soft shell crab, spring rolls and lamb ribs. Mains less successful, with the fried rice containing a lot of ham. Why ? Prawn and chicken dishes were bland and lacking flavour....More

The bar staff were truly moronic and had absolutely no idea as to how to deal with orders. Staff was rude and extremely high-browed. The food was not much better than a local take away. This was a robbery. Stay away from this place.

I've visited Kam Fung for nearly 20 years and not once have I been left disappointed. It's understated and unimposing, a functional restaurant with extremely efficienct staff and a menu to beat any of the tourist restaurants in China town. It's also very good value...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House

The dish I had was very average. I can imagine that it may not have the cleanest kitchen you've ever seen based on what I saw of the dining area. But neither of those would stop me going back.

I am shocked by reading this but can verify that this is true. I have not been here for a few month but never had any good poisoning. Hopefully the owners can clean it up and get a 5/5 certification. Thanks for letting... More
