The worst restaurant I ever we...

The worst restaurant I ever is little okay but the ambiance is the worst..manager sucks..she is very headstrong and not at all friendly to the customers...she think its a five star hotel and behaves like that but it is the stupid one...I thought it might be good as its near to UMKC but they fool the students a lot with their waitress...they are not clear of what they are doing..they dont know how to calcu... view more

I just came from Kin Lin.Today was the first time I tried it. Such TERRIBLE service. The female server asked if we needed more time then she never came back. Each time we tried to ask her a question after that she was rude to us. A Middle Eastern male server noticed we were waiting to have our order taken. He came over to take our order. I ordered Chicken With Vegetables. The man said there were better dishes with th... view more

I went in to Kin Lin's earlier today to have a quick lunch between my noon-1 and 2-3pm classes expecting delicious food and a comfortable restaurant atmosphere. Unfortunately, they could only partially stood up to my expectations. I was seated fast enough by a Mexican host (not sure what a Mexican guy is doing hosting for a Chinese restaurant, but hey we all need work, so that's fine), but almost immediately afte... view more

Great Food

Kin Lin has been by the UMKC for over 20 ages, They have great food and always welling to serve with a smile on their faces. They have really cheap lunch specials that is between $5.00- $5.45. My favorite lunch item is the Curry Chicken and the Chicken Shirmp Hunan. The curry chicken has really awesome spicy curry sauce with these french frise looking potatos, onions, and carrots although I usually get it with c... view more

Bad Service

The only reason people go to this restaurant, (or I should say a fast food place rather) as someone already put it in one of the reviews is that, its close to the university and nothing else....the service is horrible....I have been seeing it from past 5 years, but majority of the people still seem to have the same opinion about it...that they haven't changed in terms of service....Hope they change at least after rea... view more

Uncomfortable Atmosphere awkward food

This place is close to campus, so that is the only reason why so many students even bother coming here. Their food all tastes the same. One of the dishes had French Fries in it. They don't care about their customers. They are still in business because college students have nowhere else to get Chinese food. There is also this awkward Hispanic guy there who made my friends and I really uncomfortable. I hope he doe... view more

Ripped me off

A while back, I'd called for some take out, a large order of scallops along with soup & such. (I'd eaten here previously with decent food & no problems.) While I was inside waiting for my order, I heard someone in the kitchen say ""No, the scallops is supposed to be a large"", but didn't think much of it. When I got out to my car, I went through my bag and saw they'd given me a VERY tiny carton, so I went back in... view more

I have been eating here for 25 years easily, and like the owners. Their waiters quality vary over the years, but if you become a regular, and trouble yourself to get to know them, they will take good care of you. Have always felt like they care about the customers, and it is my daughters favorite place to eat; they practically adopted her after watching her eat "hot and spicy" at her second birthday dinn... view more

Best in Price Category

Kin Lin certainly has the best in price category sewed up. Being between Subway and Pizza 51, Kin Lin has sported a lunch menu that gives you the biggest bang-for-your ($5) buck. Their food is hot and tasty. But their fried rice is very plain, with no vegetables and little egg. They also have opted their sweet and sour dishes to have no pineapple? Still very good, but not what I was used to. The owner will know y... view more

I hate to go this place...but I dont have an option since I dont have a car. I hate the attitude of the people working here. I hate the waiters since they dont care a bit about their customers. Once i gave my waiter a tip of 2$ for 8$ food and she asked me for more tip before everybody. \r \r There is a Hispanic guy in the restaurent and he is extremely awkward with the gals that come in. He either tries to HANDSH... view more
