Was on holiday in Skipton and went here, it was a great meal with an all you can eat Cantonese buffet serving starters, mains and puddings. Was great.

Visited today for lunch having never been before. Absolutely top marks for value for money £6.99 for a 3 course meal. Service was excellent from a very nice delightful and attentive young lady Such a shame that the Restaurant is to close on the 31st of August having just found it still I believe it is staying open for takeaways...

Our regular Chinese was closed so paid this one a visit. Staff were very friendly and accommodating for gluten free but sadly very limited options available for starters so my sister had to make do with just a bowl of seaweed. Ribs and spring rolls were decent. The sauces on the mains were very watery and fairly bland. Wasn't too... More

It was the first time we had visited Kong's but it certainly won't be the last. The food was excellent with lots of dishes to choose from, we all had the 4 course buffet which was very good value for money. We received great service from the friendly staff and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Situated a couple of minutes only from the main street/s - just across the canal along Canal Street will find it - the restaurant offers an Early Bird... More

Whilst there is a wide selection on the buffet, the amount and quality of the meat leaves a great deal to be desired. The sauces were all very watery and some quite tasteless. The prawns in garlic sauce had so few prawns it was almost impossible to find any!
