i was introduced by my boyfriend for the first time and I can tell you its a great cheap restaurant and very popular. I do have to stress how busy and crowed this med-size restaurant becomes on the weekends. The earlier the better and the food is always fresh and tasty.

This is a very popular place. There are always lines at lunch during the weekends. To avoid the lines, I went there on a weekday a little after 1:00. No wait. The place has good off street parking on both sides of the restaurant. Service was bad. The staff spoke only a little English. The tables were dirty. We had... More

A friend who is well aware of my high standards for dim sum, insisted I come here. It took almost an hour to drive to Malden, and we waited in a packed restaurant entrance for 15 minutes before we got a table, but once we sat down and started sampling their dishes, all was forgotten. Both the quality and the... More

The food here was very good and we visited many times. On our last visit there was a change in the taste and quality. I went up to the manager and asked if there was a new cook. He told me there was and I told him about the change in the taste of the food. He kind of looked... More

The subject says it all...authentic. I'm Chinese American and love that the dim-sum and other dishes are as good as going to Chinatown without the parking headache. (FYI: Their parking lot is tiny, but additional parking is located across the street at the hardware store; but park away from their shop.) Yes, other posters complained that the staff barely speaks... More

We finally made our first visit to Sun Kong around 2pm today, Saturday. We were two of ~ 15 diners. I know that this late timing is not ideal for dimsum, but it was still worthwhile. Only 2 carts working and we sampled ~ 9 items and ordered a plate of chow fun with beef and broccoli. Some 5 items... More

My husband and I landed in Boston in the midst of the worst Christmas eve afternoon traffic. Since we had not had lunch, my Bostonian sister and brother-in-law decided to detour to Malden to have dinner before we fight our way to Lowell. The double lobsters with ginger and scallion was an amazing value at $20.95, the mixed fried of... More

We've eaten at the restaurant twice and had take out twice as this place is convenient. The food is inconsistent. Sometimes it's fine and sometimes it's bland and overcooked. The same can be said of the service. What I do not understand is the lack of pride in taking care of the restaurant. Seriously, can no one take care of... More
