My mom even remembers coming to King Fong's more than 65 years ago! The decor is a trip back in time! And the egg foo yung is scrumptious!

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Omaha. The furnishings came from China in the 1920. It has been family owned since opening. The food is fresh and the service is excellent.

I had a wonderful lunch here. I had the lunch special, chow mein with rice and egg foo yung. it was delicious and very reasonably priced, and came with tea. The place is the thing - it's charming old glamour. All marble tables and gilt...More

We heard a lot about this place and had to try it so we could experience it for ourselves. I think everything we heard was simply embellished in people's memories. The food didn't seem like anything special to us at all. The décor was interesting...More
