Kong is a fun restaurant. The menu had great variety and the staff were quite accommodating when it came to food allergies. We visited with a large group for a work lunch and were well looked after.

Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our cocktails were also very memorable. The menu was an interesting and inspired offering. Prices were a touch on the steep side, but well worth the experience. Service and atmosphere were also great.
