Good Chinese food at a reasonable price. I mostly eat lunch. Service is quick, even though it's a busy place. Make sure to get a punch card and eventually you'll get a free meal!

Cannot comment on restaurant experience as we placed a take out order. Food was delicious. The quantity was big for the buck. It was a reasonably priced meal with lots of choices on the menu. Would definitely go back

I waited 2 hours for food to be deliverd 1.3 miles. I called three times to check on the status of my delivery.

I went one evening with a group of colleagues to this places located very close to the UM KC Campus. Not a hole in the wall - but modest ambiance - friendly service - What made me write this review is the number of choices on their menu. Simply amazing. Some of the friends with me were Chinese and they... More

Kin Lin has great food at an affordable price. They've always been very quick at preparing the food as well. I love the crab rangoons and have gone out of my way to get them when I'm in town.

Fast service, good food, best take out menu (it's expanded in the past couple of years!) and if you call on your way home from work, they have it ready by the time you get there! Never had to wait more than 5 minutes for it.

A varied menu, reasonably priced. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They can handle the challenge of a large group of people ordering separately.

This place is really close to campus so when I'm done for the day and don't feel like cooking but don't want fast food then this is where I come. Love the dumplings!
