My fiancee and I went to Kong on Saturday night for a light meal. Having been to their old restaurant at The Buzz centre years ago I was expecting superb food. And that's exactly what we received. It's so fantastic to see a restaurant having kept to their high standards after moving. I'd go as far as to say that they've become even better.

The Hong Kong Pears were a true epicurean treat - a delight to look at and the flavours were amazing. The Lamb Gyoza were just as tasty.

Following the dim sum we had salmon fashion sandwiches - I would say that it is some of the freshest sushi in Johannesburg and well worth ordering.

Service, on the whole, was excellent - our waiter was attentive, and the managers and maître d' were present, welcoming and friendly.

An all-round exceptional evening, even if it was just for an impromptu light meal.

A vibey and beautiful restaurant but the food can be hit and miss. My partners kong beef was spectacular but my soup was obviously frozen and the heated up- it was lukewarm and tasteless. To managements credit they did take this off our bill. Not one of my favourite places but not bad.

Probably the best steak I've ever had, still dreaming about it! Very nice place to sit and have a family dinner or for a couple. Menu huge and varied, will be back

For us, Kong is not a treat, it is a necessity! Besides the incredible decor and great service, the food is superb (and they make some of the best dumplings this side of Hong Kong!)!
