I have no idea how the editor rated this so poorly- Fong's is the first place my family visits on the way home from the airport after a trip because we can count on it to be fabulous every time. The cream cheese wontons are the best, the quality of the meat is unparalleled in the world of Chinese food, and the service is outstanding. And this is one of the only restaurants I've been to where you can customize the flavor of your food from spicy to mild- so you know it hasn't been sitting around in the kitchen all night long. No matter how picky you are abotu Chinese, you won't be disappointed. Try the beef with peapods or the (all white meat) sesame chicken. Phenomenal!

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+!

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.

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.
