Kingsford Chinese Restaurant: Chinese, Kingsford (10 May 2014)

426 Anzac Parade, Kingsford NSW 2032

Everybody Sang Tung tonight

Surviving the test of time Kingsford Chinese Restaurant has remained popular and consistent. Sang Tung Chicken ($12) is c
onsidered by many as their signature dish and is also a family favourite of mine. Tasty with crispy bits of yumminess. Deep Fried Calamari with Pepper & Salt ($12.80) is another favourite that's been a must order any time I visit. It's tender, tasty and crispy — what more could you ask for, oh yes it's reasonably priced as well for the portion size. This time I take a gamble on ordering the Pork Chop in Vietnamese Style ($11) for the first time and so glad I did. Tender and tasty as hoped and becomes another favourite. Can this place do no wrong? Well I guess the Chinese Mushroom with Seasonal Vegetable ($12.80) isn't the most pretty of dishes. It tasted OK in its foreboding gluggy sauce and if the bulbous and slippery mushrooms were sliced up would have made it a lot easier to share and eat with chopsticks. Always gotta have me Fried Rice ($8) which was good too. 

Bill came to $56.60 for four which in my world is great value for the standard of dishes and the chinese tea is complimentary which is always a bonus for customers. I guess don't expect service to be overly friendly although this time around they were pretty nice and helpful but probably because our lunch time visit wasn't too crazy busy. Your toilet awaits through the back door, down the dreary and slightly smelly outdoor passageway, past the dirty mop drying against the fence and into the single stall complete with wonky hand gel bottle sitting inside previous wall mount ed soap dispenser. What more could you ask for besides the wall mounted paper dispenser perhaps being filled up if that's the norm.
