Kong’s Cantonese Restaurant, Skipton

Earlier in 2011 The Commercial Pub on Water Street, Skipton was transformed into a Chinese Restaurant or Cantonese to be precise, an improvement on the tired pub? The boys decided I should take them to try it out!

Kongs Cantonese Buffet

The restaruant boasts an a la carte menu and are happy to prepare specific dishes off menu with notice, we tried the buffet, which was extensive and with many well know dishes to keep the kids happy such as hot & sour soup, salt & pepper ribs, crispy won-tons, chicken satay, prawn toast, oyster sauce wings, sweet & sour chicken, chicken in black bean, king prawn with spring onion & ginger and many more but it also boasts some more unusual dishes like Mongolian chicken, green lip mussels, a lamb dish and spicy kung bo.  Some great dishes at an affordable price, good value, quality and super hosts, well worth a visit for a better than the norm Chinese style buffet.

We did have a laugh at the china plates made by that famous fine bone china manufacture “Cathay Pacific” no less!

Kong’s Cantonese Buffet, Water Street, Skipton, North Yorkshire is the Sister restaurant to Kong’s in Bradford. We visited on a Wednesday evening, 1 adult, 2 kids, 2 rounds of 3 drinks, Total bill £33.
