Honestly, my favorite main course is Kung Pow's potstickers. If forced to order an entree, I order the Kung Pow Chicken, and its fantastic.

We have been enjoying Kung Pow! since they opened in 2015. We frequently dine-in (They are open on Christmas Day!) and we often order take-out via Caviar. The location is in the heart of the Northwest Nob Hill neighborhood. The atmosphere is more hip and...More

We ate Kung pao prawns, and shrimp southern fried rice, and they were great. This is a great place for lunch, as they always serve complimentary soup (hot & sour) which is always good as well.

Based on previous reviews I was expecting legitimately decent Chinese food, but unfortunately that was not the case. I would have preferred some greasy spoon mall food court Chinese food to what we ate for dinner here. The worst offender: the deeply fried and salty...More

We did take out and the food was unlike typical Chinese...more inventive and very fresh. It was tasty, though not stellar. And the over $40 price tag was a bit hard to swallow. For the $, it just didn't wow enough (say, like a Pok...More
