I used to go to this place as a child when we had to dress up to go here because it was very fancy, the food was unique and fun - it still has great food but no need to dress up. A friend and I met here for a weekday lunch and I was surprised to see the great... More

This was my first visit and it won't be my last. The food was very good. Large portions for fair prices. The service was just as good as some of the best restaurants. Very attentive, never wanted for anything. Chinese American classics. I would have taken a picture but I ate it too quickly. I will be back!

Good selection of lunch combos (entree with Fried Rice and choice of egg rolls or cream cheese puffs) for $7.95. Sesame Chicken portion was huge. Sweet and Sour Chicken portion was small, but enough. The server was awesome - super fast service. I would have given 5 stars but the Sweet and Sour Chicken was lukewarm at best. Would definitely... More

I've been a customer for over 20 years. Never had a sub standard meal. I usually eat American as their steaks are phenomenal. However, they were named the Nr . 1 Chinese restaurant in the twin cities two years ago. I do like their Chinese food as well . Always consistent. I recently dined at the Nr. 1 Chinese place...

Have had lunch here several times, including appetizers, soups, and stir fries. This is americanized chinese food, but very tasty. Service is great, and the ambiance makes this place a classic!

David Fong's used to be unique - great Chinese food at a good price and fun tropical cocktails, whether you were alone, on a date or with a large group. Now it has none of the pizzazz that made it famous. The food is so-so Americanized Chinese and the once fun cocktails are smaller and overpriced. The decor is tired... More

We have been going here all of our lives; both sets of our parents (mine and my husband's) have been going to David Fong's since it was a takeout window in the 1950's. We have a lot of loyalty, but we also have a good idea of what their product should taste like! We ordered takeout on 01-28-17, which also... More

We have been going to Fongs for years. Yes, the decor is old, the menu stays the same, it's not crowded with "trendy sorts". It is crowded at times with down to earth people who want consistent quality food. I've seen some reviewers give Fongs one star. Ridiculous. Some hot shots let's rip anything if it's not trendy. Thanks to... More

We were there for lunch - best egg rolls we have had !! Our waitress was rather frazzled trying to bring the food too fast and serve other patrons. What we have learned is just order the appetizer first and let it settle out. We had Kung po chicken which was tasty but not the best I have had and... More

I was brought to David Fong's by my wife, who called it a "staple" in the Bloomington food community. So, of course, I was excited to go there. Sadly, I simply can't remember a meal of any kind that I've ever had in the last, say, 10 years, that was as bad as this one. I so desperately want to... More
