I've tried this restaurant once, ordering take-out, and was not impressed. The shrimp toast was disappointing and greasy and the chicken chow mien was average. I may try it again on the theory that my last experience was just not a good day, but I won't go out of my way to do so.
I ordered take-out and was disappointed in the food, particularly the shrimp toast.
Great Place – Fongs is my favorite Twin Cities restaurant. Great food, beautiful traditional decor, awesome Mai Tai's.
Excellent waitresses, especially Char and Peggy.
Excellent Food, RETRO Fab,Karaoke Awesome – Back in time! Awesome Steak Chinatown! Karaoke on Tues and Thurs nights super w/ awesome singers.
Best drinks, and Mai Tai's. Good value for a night out
Worst chinese ever ate in My life. – The food was too bad. They dont know the basic cooking knowledge of chinese cooking. They cannot even get the basic chowmein cooked right. All items we ate were blasted and we had to throw the whole food in trash. Please take my advice and never eat there and get ur self slaughtered. Every dish the chicken smells / stinks bad.
Back to childhood... – I'm an American born Chinese, and I was brought up on authentic Chinese, American, and American-Chinese food. David Fong's definitely brings back the memories of the American-Chinese food I had as a kid. Yes, I would agree that it is not traditional Chinese food one would find overseas, but this is definitely great America-Chinese food. The Americanized chicken chow mein, egg foo young, sweet and sour pork, etc. is all good! I also love the retro decor of the place. It definitely shows this is a traditional Bloomington 70s restaurant, unlike the newer retro restaurants one would find in Uptown. Since this is a family-run establishment, you can tell the servers there treat you like family as well, a place that is frozen in time! So, this Chinese American gives it an A+!
Poor service, bad food – This was my first time there and I will never return. My dish was supposed to be hot and I told the waitress that I wanted it really spicy and it was not spicy. My father had the kung pao chicken and it was bland. The pop was flat Everyone that ordered pop had flat pop and we ordered different kind of beverages. The flatware did not match and it looked quite old, when our order arrived not all of it came at the same time. I have not seen a waitress who was so unprofessional, I will NEVER go here again.
POOR SERVICE........ – LAST WEEKEND I WENT TO FONGS WITH S0ME OF MY BUDDYS. WE WAITED AT THE DOOR ALMOT 15 MINZ,,AFTER THE WAITER CAME TO SAT US DOWN,,POOR SERVICE,,AND THE FOOD CHINESS OR AMERICAN?? I CAN'T TELL...BAD COMBINATION...........
Below Average – High prices, below average food and poor service. My husband and I waited for 10 minutes before they even took our drink order and the place wasn?t all that busy. Then this lady patron let her grand-daughter run all over the place like an untamed monkey and nobody said anything to her. The food wasn?t all that great it was just average to say the least.
Editorial Review – Chinese platters heavy on chicken and beef are served in a 1950s faux-Asian facade with a supper club feel.
