First time visiting - now my absolute favourite place to go (if they get cardinal in for a collaboration everyday haha). Service was incredible, taste impeccable and just a mint place. Mancunian to its core.

Lovely staff, excellent food. The only thing I don’t like is the new seating arrangement. I don’t like the large bench seating that is now in the middle, it’s not comfortable if you are eating and there are not many tables for two and the ones there are are very close together.

We came for the bottomless tacos on taco Tuesday and really enjoyed it, staff were friendly and helpful, very attentive, tacos were delicious, the fried chicken ones and beef ones were our favourite, we got there a bit late and they didn’t start the 90 mins until we sat down, would definitely come back

We had a superb evening at Kongs and I urge everyone to go, have the wings, tacos, loaded fries! You must have the frozen margaritas, they are a joy and a delight, they use good quality tequila. The staff are really sound too, we’ll definitely be back! Thanks for a great evening.

Excellent place, excellent food and both myself and my partner throughly enjoyed ourselves at Kong’s. Although excellent, the service was a little slow. Only two (2) staff on to seat, serve and clean when it was a busy evening - no issues with the service itself, just a couple more staff would’ve improved the experience.

Overall experience was great! Quick service from the team. We had very delicious chicken wings, though some had really thick batter but were still crispy. For the price , definitely worth it if you think you can eat a lot lot otherwise you would be eating like £1 per wing like we did..come hungry

It was quiet when we arrived and our server was really nice. She helped us with the menu as we were unsure if you could mix and match on the tacos which you can’t unfortunately. We ordered 2 espresso martinis which took about 15 minutes to get to our table and tbh, I am 100% sure they forgot to put any sugar syrup in. It was pure espresso, just black coffee. No martini to it. We enjoyed the food, but wish we were given some plates to put things on. The guy brought the food over and just dumped it on the table, there was no service. Didn’t ask if we wanted anything else, I was waiting for him to come back to ask for a blue cheese sauce but he never came back so missed out on that one. By the time we were ready to leave, a few drunk tables came in and definitely ruined the atmosphere. We waited quite a while to pay, but that wasn’t the teams fault. We were still happy to leave a tip and will probably come back for a quick bite to eat but maybe a lot earlier during the day. My partner said the beef tacos are the best she has ever had so definitely a thumbs up for that guys.

We had the bottomless taco experience, just two of us. The food was really tasty and absolutely loved the tacos. Our favourite was the beef tacos. Taaaaasty!! Only thing I would say for improvement is speed and attention of service. Anything bottomless only works well if the service is quick and food comes out quickly. Certainly would have liked to have had more tacos in the 90 minutes but because of the slow wait for the tacos to come out once they’d been ordered, we definitely couldn’t get as many as we would have wanted. Great to experience and would recommend to others
