The chameleon that cooks
Tucked away in the quite aging Holiday Inn Silom, Kowloon Chinese Restaurant tends to offer affordable Cantonese cuisine for the locals, with the quality equal to that patrons would have eaten in Hong Kong's fine restaurants; but the outcome was just against their will.
I went to Kowloon several times (before I decided that it is enough); food quality varies and is inconsistent. The Chinese native head chef, himself, may be capable in front of the stove, but I have the impression that he is seriously lacking of any management power, and fails to lead his kitchen team to cook (the food right) in a consistent manner.
Wait-staff are enthusiastic and service is prompt, except the restaurant manager.
