The Kung Pow was very good. The restaurant has been around a long time (I believe there was a 1980 menu on the wall). It's Chinese food and staff was authentic.

I've been going here since 1985. It's a family owned hole in the wall. I have ordered the Special Gai Kow nearly a thousand times. lol You gotta try it.

After the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to venture to AI Palace.

The service was prompt and excellent and the food came quite quickly.

The portions were more than generous.
The bill at the end was quite easy on the pocket.

I will surely be coming back here to eat the next time I am in the area.

Thank Cheyenne M

The Kung Pao Chicken and Mongolian beef were lick the plate good, $11 each including rice, and as remembered, portions were huge. The two dishes and rice would have been more than enough for 3 hungry eaters. The Kung Pao was only mildly spice, but if one desires more heat, one can munch on the red peppers, or add the available chili oil. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked, as were all the vegetables in both dishes. No house delivery, but Grubhub can deliver your order. Parking is limited in this mall in the NE corner of Red Hill and Bristol, so one might have to park half a block away. Free tea, and free fountain soda refills. Decor is basic, with wood chairs and tables. No linen, but at least their paper napkins are sturdy and plentiful. (I hate tissue paper napkins.)
