I was in London on business on my own and looking for somewhere to eat and with good reviews and being close to my hotel it fitted the bill. I was given a quiet table near the back and the dining room prep area. It...More

Small and friendly establishment, we decided on their set menu at £25 as there were four of us and it was easier than going through the menu items. Very nice food and some decent wine so very enjoyable. Being in central London the price is...More

I have been going to this restaurant for about 30 years. Staff are pleasant. The portions are large and tasty. Usually a good experience but always get feeling the place is not clean. Toilets are grubby. If you close your eyes and enjoy the flavours...More

I like Chinese food, although it is not necessarily my favourite. But I love this place. Only my second visit, but I'll be back next time I'm in the smoke. Tucked away down a fairly quiet street just around the corner from Holburn tube. We...More

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!

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.

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
