Leong's is famous for its cashew chicken. I've been hearing about it for years and was a bit skeptical....I mean, what's the big deal? It's chicken with cashews and a little bit of gravy, right? WRONG! This dish is like none I've had before. The...More

Leong's has a wide variety of dining fare for almost any pallet, but not every dish here can satisfy everyone. They have many gluten free options and if your ticket says gluten free you can be sure it was made that way...if not you'd better...More

I had the David's Special with half sweet and sour and half cashew chicken. It came with egg drop soup and egg roll. All was very tasty. The peach saki was refreshing. Service was excellent and friendly.

My husband and I went there for dinner on a Saturday night arriving around 5:30. It never got busy during the time we were there. The service and atmosphere was very nice. I ordered egg drop soup and the tofu stir fry. Both were excellent....More

Only my second visit; but, my memory hadn't distorted the first visit. Springfield Cashew Chicken from Leong's is a must when you're in town. Easy directions to/from. Staff (this trip) a little more concerned with chatting (@ 4:30p) than with serving my food; but, still...More

The cashew chicken and fried rice are the best! The crab rangoons are outstanding! Just love this restaurant for lunch and dinner. The quality and quantity of food is well above expected. The American food pretty good too. I especially enjoy the lo mein.

Food was great as usual. Our waiter struggled some but it was still worth the food. Love this family that runs the restaurant

Love this place. The inside decor is peaceful and well done. This is the home of "Cashew Chicken" and the owner who is in his 90's still comes in to sit and customers go up and visit with him. Everything we've tried is very good...More

Food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Would recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Egg rolls were excellent and the food with lo mein noodles was delicious. Cashew chicken and shrimp were good. Broccoli beef was magnificent

We ordered the $29.99 dinner for two. We had enough food for leftovers. Your choice of soup, entree' and dessert. I suggest the house-made mango cake with mango ice cream. The cheesecake we've had in the past was old and dry.

Best way to determine what they do offer is to do a Google Search for "Leong's Tea House, Springfield, MO". That search will get you to their Website, and it does have their Menu. The menu is great, and I'll bet they... More
