They offer store bought fried wontons and duck sauce while you wait for your meal. So if people who didn't pay attention of the detailed bill, they may fall into the double tip trap!!! I think it was frozen and then it was cooked without defrozing the same. I lived in Oakland's Chinatown for 3 years and really missed good Chinese food when I moved back. Portion sizes were fairly large which allowed for the necessary leftovers. Hot and sour was very spicy , so beware if you are a bit timid. The sauce was tasty, slightly spicy, just enough to make the nose run, with broccoli, onion, carrots and bell pepper.
The veggies were crisp, not overdone. Upon eating the duck, he realized that either it had previously been frozen, and defrosted, then fried in a hurry, or it was very, very old. We used their delivery service, and from time to order, til time it arrived, was 20 minutes! I like their food, but the surcharge was ridiculous. Spareribs are deep fried not a Chinese sticky rib at all again very bland!!!! Excellent food at great price. Egg drop and hot and sour were both superb.
And then they just add the tip to the check. The place is small but interesting ,the tables are worn out and old ,the food is nothing like you expect it to be or even meet the requirements. They get two stars for the good customer service everything else is bad. The place is overpriced and the serve was pretty bad. If your looking for a place for good Chinese food your in luck cause this isn't the place. Inside is very small, but kitchen looked clean. Pretty authentic dishes made by Chinese Chef.

I do not mind paying the extra charge for my rice, since it is a special order, but I will not be robbed in the process, Definitely, when I ordered from this place every other week. It was one of the horrible expirence. We strive to use fresh ingredients to make healthy food including Soup, Steak, Burgers, Pitas, Pizza, Pasta, Wings, Vegetarian dishes. But when they swipe your card and give you receipt to sign, there is still a space to put tip. Also i got undercooked raw chicken in my plate.
The staff is nice, they don't necessarily engage in long conversations with me but they do greet me and smile when I speak or when they speak to me. So I ordered the beef egg noodle soup and they came out with lo mein. You will double tip if you didn't look carefully on the bill. Hot tea seemed to be included. Best Chinese food in Key West, hands down. Minus one star due to their forced 18% tip and double tip trap. I recommend the Crispy Beef and Mangolian chicken, both done very well.
We ordered egg tomato, egg plant, ma po tofu and all were pretty good. They have a special menu for just the Chinese folks written in Chinese if you request it. I feel like I got ripped off Horrible is an understatement. Restaurant the servers frozen food is a big no no for me. I had to get up twice asking foe rice and water. Kennedy Cafe serves the best Mediterranean, Italian, Greek, Turkish and Uzbek cuisines in Key West.
No apologies nothing instead just a surprised face. Sesame Beef and Egg Roll were good. So in short go somewhere else or cook yourself a cup noodle at home. It came later than all the other dishes. I would recommend this place over the other Chinese restaurant in town Hong Kong because their food here has taste.
Homemade Iced Tea came in a soup container with a straw. About ten minutes driving from Key West International airport. I should have payed more attention to the 2 and half star rating because it was spot on. We came in for lunch and the prices were very reasonable. Prices are very good as well.
Be careful when you tip. I really enjoy the taste of the food from here! I often judge a Chinese restaurant by the quality of their soup. I am glad I gave them a try. Located in Key Plaza Shopping Center, near N Roosevelt Blvd U. I wasn't expecting much from a Chinese food place in the Keys but this is beyond bad.
A member of our party ordered the duck. Duck was dry, tasteless, tough, and old tasting. The ambiance is not 5 stars but this review had to be better than a 4 star review. Overall the food was good. . Completely missed my usual phone operator.
