“The ambience is nice enough - an elongated room with your typical dragon or golden animal motif on top of a red background.”
“I'd recommend the fish-shaped mango dessert.”
“went to Fung's at 1/26/09, i was sitting at the corner table, first of all i think the restaurant is pretty, but then i had been wait for like 15 mins, finally there's a chinese lady with a tail on her hair show up to had my drinks, then i tried to ask ”
“King crab is the best.”
“Always packed to the hilt on weekends with a wait, they have some of the best variety of dishes on their dim sum menu as well as the best tasting.”
“Hands down, this is the best chinese restaurant in Houston.”
“Well, the food is taste great, so i will come back and try again, but for sure i wont let her to serve me again!”
“I will never come back even after all these years because the people are rude and snobbish.”
“asked to get my check and they charged me for the full price of everything I did not even receive.”
“Ever since the restaurant expanded, both quality and quantity of their dishes deteriorated; with slow services and higher prices when compare with other same caliber Contoness Seafood Restaurants.”
Some of the best Cantonese food in town. I'm surprised at the horrible reviews preceding mine because in my experience Fung's Kitchen is the one Chinese restaurant I can rely on for great food all the time. The Peking duck is second to none, and the orange ribs are finger licking good. Fung's is by far my favorite dim sum place in Houston. Always packed to the hilt on weekends with a wait, they have some of the best variety of dishes on their dim sum menu as well as the best tasting. Most restaurants have their staple steamed dumplings and fried items, but Fung's goes step further and has some unusual dishes flying that I don't see at other restaurants. Don't believe all the bad reviews, the food here really IS good.
I will never ever recommended this restaurant. Specially for people who is getting married never ever try this restaurant out. Last october our good friend was hosted in Fung's Kitchen raestaurant. They pay almost 500$ each table and they deserve a nice wedding dinner. What Fung's did last time. They serve in a horrible way. The food served like 2 hours. Food came very late that caused some guest went home early.
they only put 4 person to help for that party. can u imagine that? a dinner wedding party were served by 4 small guys?
Even you complain to this owner they will never listen. That's the way of Chinese owner reacted to their customer
BE AWARE OF THIS RESTAURANT ... SPECIALLY IF U WANT TO HOLD A BIG PARTY ... BETTER NOT TO CONTACT CHINESE RESTAURANT IF U WANT TO HAVE A PEACE IN MIND.
Who Makes Chicken Kew, or Hon Shoo Gai Kew?. I have heard a lot about Fung's Kitchen, mostly all positive comments. But I have not yet tried it myself, since it's quite a distance from where we live. But can anyone in Houston tell me who makes Hon Shoo Gai Kew, also known as Hai Shue Gai Kew, or simply Chicken Kew? ......The only two places I have found that make this wonderful chicken dish in Houston are Kim Son's in Downtown Houston, and Hong Kong Chef in Bellaire, the latter of which I frequented as a child growing up in Bellaire. But now that I live South of Houston, I keep searching for other chinese restaurants who may make this dish. I can be reached at Wadester4u at AOL dot com.
CHINESE FOOD. Help! I just read the disappointing, luke-warm reviews of Fung's Kitchen. I have never been there, but I had read that it was the best Chinese restaurant in town. I was planning to take some out-of-town guests who are Chinese food aficienados! One of the reviewers said to go "farther down Bellaire" for the best Chinese food, but didn't mention the specific names of any restaurants. Come on, fellow Houstonians, let me know the real story on Chinese food in Houston. Ambience is not a priority; quality of food is. My email is UHCLC at yahoo dot com
Worst Dim Sum any where; avoid.
We had dined at Fung Kitchen for dinner the last 5 years and it has been great. Today we went for Dim Sum Sunday lunch. Lots of people and we thought it would be the usual good. THE WORST DIM SUM WE EVER HAD. The food came rarely and when it came it was on an over stuffed cart that had been going around for a while. It was not hot and barely hot. The food was old. They had a buffet steam table as part of Dim Sum, which is totally stupid. Dim Sum should be made hot and served, there should be lots of it coming all the time.
I have had Dim Sum many places including San Francisco and Hong Kong, this was not even rateable with the others. It was terrible. I don't think we go there for dinner any more. Probably new owner or some thing. We were shocked how bad it was.
Still good, service & food declined - uneven.
Fung's been our place for best Peking Duck x 10+ yrs; other dishes outstanding, a bit pricy. Twice/ past wk (last Aug 4, 07): size almost doubled, alas svc & quality down. Some still shine (originality & taste), execution bad w/others. Prices up with decor, delivery no match now
- Only recommended pricier dishes, many; not interested in our trying for no take-home. No water 'til asked x2, then asked again to get enough glasses for all
- Inattentive. Refills: ignored kid in back. Ice tea never refilled ?
- At end, kitchen had put away special dessert treat that waiter assured us they had tonight when seated. Know us by name from visits over the years ? no special saved. YMMV
- Check bill for wrong amts, experienced at times
? Quality now uneven. Last night:
? Peking Duck
- Long wait despite pre-order, only sliced skin & meat served, all fat still in. Some tough, chewy; 1/2 to 2/3 of skin pcs greasy not crisp
- Carcass remains in very good soup ($15 add'l /ea. for other dish). Drumsticks: in soup, not with order
- Extra buns cold, sent back to rewarm, took a while then
? Whole tilapia fish with scallions & ginger: Pretty good, a bit salty. Came undercooked, meat bloody. After recooked, only then carved bones away
? Prawns, fried, in mayonnaise with walnuts: heavenly
? Bok choy in garlic sauce: texture good, garlic definitely not lacking - bit over balance
? Yang Chow fried rice - Very good, yet: ham slices like from pkg, no chinese sausage, oily
? Tofu stuffed with shrimp: OK, average
? Fried tofu: great, delicately fried skin/warm soft inside
? Beef with chinese broccoli: excellent, beef texture like treated w/ tenderizer. Chinese broccoli stems old, bitter
? Bird?s nest with scallops and shrimp: overall OK, potato unusual flavor, did not do much for me
Net: hope, wish uneven service, quality back up to match new decor & prices. For better chinese at lower $$ in Houston, go west more on Bellaire Blvd
I went to Fung's kitchen for dimsum yesterday morning. My first time but willl be my last. The service was the worst. It took them over 10 minutes to greet the table (Not even greeting....the server just say..."drinks?"...not even a smile but an angry look.) If the restaurant is busy, I understand but the restaurant has no other guest but me and my family. After the server deliver the drinks, my dad was still holding and looking at the menu. The server just snatched the menu off my father's hand and walk off. That was very rude. I still insist on going through the whole entire breakfast because people have told me about their great food. The food is average.
I was insulted when I hear the server greet the next table with a word "hello" Why not my table despite that we actually greeted him but he has no response in return. Then as lunch time nears, there are more Americans dine at the restaurant. My whole family realize that they provide a better service to Americans than chinese. I also overheard a few other tables complaining about the servers attitude and service. The manager does not even seem to care less.
Don't go there.
Cold Dim Sum, Slow Service. Dim sum are cold inside or undercook. Slow Refill and bussing. Dim Sum Cart always stay in the same section
Best Dim Sum in Houston. I feel like home in Hong Kong everytime I eat in this restaurant (Esp Weekends), it's crowded, busy, noisy, and you will be in and out in less than 45 mins. The food is good but not extraordinary. I went for dinner once and it was disappointing and didn't go back again
Worst service I have received in many years. I was looking forward to taking my friend to dinner at Fung's Kitchen for her birthday because I had only heard good things about this restaurant. Boy, were we DISAPPOINTED!!! The service was terrible - one waiter took our order without writing it down and another waiter delivered it. When I told him I did not get what I ordered, he said that he was not the one who took the order and what I got was similar to what I ordered. I would have created a scene with the manager, but I did not want to embarass my friend, so I just glared at him. The food was average at best and definitely overpriced. I know that neither one of us will EVER go back there, nor will any member of our families. Houston has too many wonderful Chinese restaurants to explore that DO have good food and service to waste time and money at Fung's. DO NOT GO THERE. You will not be pleased!!!
This classy southwest-side Cantonese kitchen offers an authentic upscale Asian atmosphere and menu with more than 400 items..
Located in an Asian-designed building near a busy Sharpstown intersection, Fung's has a spacious main dining space surrounded by several private rooms. Dim sum is served every day in a cavernous hall in the back. Six aquariums near the entrance showcase various types of live seafood that the restaurant serves. Large tables have rotating centers, making it easy to share dishes and sauces.
Hoi Fung and his family of chefs specialize in live seafood and gussied-up mainstream choices like signature sizzling peppered beef. Prime your palate with bacon-wrapped shrimp rolls, flash-fried anchovies, or steamed dumplings. Lightly battered, fried whole fish or the crispy potato bird's nest cradling fresh sea treasures are a must. Order what's in the aquarium, and you may be blessed with steamed oysters on the half-shell, seasonal Dungeness crab or green mussels in bracing sate sauce. For dessert, try the fabulously refreshing mango ice cream.
