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

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

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

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 doesn't work there anymore. He talked to us as if we were in a gang or something. I tipped him 20% which is more than what he deserved, but he had the nerves to ask for more. I felt like we had to give more for our "protection" money or else he would do something to us or our food if we come there again (we are not coming back EVER).

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 inside. I showed the young woman in the floral sundress behind the register my food & said this was supposed to be a large order. She said "Oh, there's actually just 1size, I know the menu is kind of confusing" and just blew me off.

Well, the menu isn't at all confusing, there are quite clearly different sizes. They evidently just didn't have enough scallops or something & had no problem lying to my face & stealing my money as far as I'm concerned.

(And the kicker was, after all that, the scallops were terrible!)

Pros: Food can be decent at times

Cons: Make sure you get what you paid for!

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 you by face after your third visit and by name after your fifth. The staff is a big selling point to this Brookside stanchion.

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.

There is a Hispanic guy in the restaurent and he is extremely awkward with the gals that come in. He either tries to HANDSHAKE or HUG them. So BEWARE if you are taking your spouse or gal friend.

The whole place is flled with bunch of RACISTIC people who have no respect for their customers.

is very authentic chinese dish that you cannot get anywhere in KC but here! I have my husband drive 20 mins just to get it for me. I craved this dish when I was pregnant with my first child!

The food tastes better now that their dining room is expanded and remodeled.

This was a terrible experience for me, I came to Kin Lin to meet my friends and when I got there I went to go say hi to them. Upon doing this the manager came over and told me to sit down and stop saying hi to my friends. The food was mediocre at best. Terrible experience, I will never go back to that place.

I was a regular at Kin Lin when a student at UMKC. I only make it over on occasion now, but would out their egg drop soup and crab rangoon up against anyone. You can also eat very well for under $5.

It's so hard to find restaurants that cater to Vegetarians...especially chinese restaurants. This place has tons of vegi options and the tofu is cooked perfectly...not soggy or watery. Yum!

The food here is heavily flavored with one of two sauces - brown or white.
Everything tastes like everything else and all the vegetables are seriously over cooked.
It seems like they just boiled everything in water then when the order is in toss it all into a pan and stir fry.
The service is horrible, waitresses are rude and demanding.
If you ever utilize their point card to attempt getting a free dish after the card is fulled don't be surprised. The owner will sheepishly smile and say that your accumulated points were not all larger orders or not all dinner orders and still have you pay for food that is rubbish.
On the plus side it is filling and still superior to McDonalds or any other burger joint.
But if you want filling I would just pop right next door to Subway rather than waste time with the "service" at this place.

Hi folks I just wanted to bring notice about the kind of home delivery done by our frenz at Kinlin. I ordered for a soup and 2 lunch items with some white rice. I never got my white rice but instead got the brown rice and for the first time I had a soup delivered to me without a spoon. Can you beat it! It is not only the time factor that matters but also the quality that matters..............

Kin Lin is the place if you are looking for a cheap chinese food. Nothing too impressive, very general chinese food dishes available. I decided to try the place from a word of mouth. The ambience and the taste is average. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, go to some other chinese place.

Cons: Finding the place, parking, service

Geared toward the UMKC community, prices are very reasonable. But, food is always fresh and served quickly. Atmosphere is casual and a bit crowded (which is great). We eat here at least once every couple of weeks and they even deliver now, too!
