The owners (Horace& Cindy) recently sold the restaurant to their nephew & he has ruined this one time wonderful restaurant. It was my family's favorite restaurant so we are so sad to see this happen. The quality of the food is very inferior to what it used to be. Also noticed almost all the former employees are gone. So sad!

This has been my family's favorite restaurant for over 20 years, however, the original owners recently sold it and the quality of the food has decreased dramatically. It is very obvious the new owner is much more interested in increasing profits than in continuing the excellent reputation this restaurant had. I hope he doesn't completely undo all the hard work...

We have continued to eat at Mencius' for over 20 years, because the freshness and quality are exceptional. Perfect for lunch or dinner. The owners aim to please and want to make your dining experience special. Don't miss out on a delightful meal.

Smaller, upscale appearing restaurant with great Asian cuisine. Excellent service, tasty food. Quite a change from they typical Asiqn all you can eat buffet. Went on Sunday after church looking for a Kingwood restaurant I had not tried. I was not disappointed. The soups are refreshingly unique and the trees are fresh and eye pleasing

First, if you are trying to find this place with a GPS, enter the town of Kingwood, not Humble. There is no Kingwood Dr. in Humble. I have lived in Kingwood for 16 years and only recently did I discover this great little place thanks to a friend. The wait staff all work wonderfully together (our favorite is Frankie) and... More

This restaurant has been in kingwood forever. Owned by Horace and Cindy, this husband and wife team are exceptional. The restaurant offers an intimate, warm feeling when you walk in. Greeted by my name, the waiter who also is a fixture here asked if I wanted my typical Miller Lite. The food is always made to order and fresh. You... More

This has been our favorite restaurant in Kingwood for 20 years. We compare any other Chinese food to that served at Mencius. Mencius always wins as the best!
