They have the best cashew chicken and won ton soup in the world. I grew up eating at Leong's and they closed and I was so happy to find that they opened a new restaurant.

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.

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.

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

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
