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

I went to Fong's twice recently, and both times had a very good experience. There is good table service with the waitstaff actually serving food from covered dishes, and a varied menu. We ordered individual dishes off the menu the first dinner. The pork fried rice had sprouts, nice meat and good flavor. The steak and veggie dish was so... More

We have been going to Fongs since I was in High School. That is a very long time ago. We have never had a bad meal there. The service has always been good, the food really good, and the price wonderful. We often will get their take out when no one feels like cooking. It is wonderful to see them... More

Heard that Fong's was old school Chinese and a staple in the Bloomington area. Well, the Old was correct. Our meal was lack luster at best and cost a lot. Dishes were overcooked, under spiced and totally American/Minnesota/Chinese, not authentically spiced or prepared Chinese. We took pains to order what the place was known for to give them a fair...
