Family Dinner at Keming

Hoboken has multiple takeaway Chinese restaurants, but Keming Restaurant is one of the only authentic sit-down Chinese restaurants in the area.

Amber from Team HG recently visited with her family and they had a great experience. Her son especially loved the lo mein, and they tried a few other amazing dishes — including the tofu and shrimp hot pot and the classic General Tso’s Chicken. The kind and hospitable service at the Hoboken restaurant alongside the delicious Chinese food definitely makes Keming top-notch.

All About Keming Restaurant

Keming and his family opened Keming Restaurant in 2016 after moving to Hoboken with his family. He quickly realized that an authentic, sit-down Chinese restaurant was missing in Hoboken’s food scene so he decided to fill the gap.

The restaurant was a hit with Hoboken’s young professionals and students who enjoy the high-quality family-style restaurant.

“We have a lot of regular customers, both American and Chinese,” Keming, Mr. Cui’s son and the restaurant’s namesake, told The Hoboken Girl. “Many come every week. In fact, the Chinese student association at Stevens sometimes hold small events here. We joke that it has almost become their school cafeteria.”

Keming Restaurant survived the pandemic and recently hired more chefs to help update the menu. Keming and the team are excited to welcome returning + new customers to try fresh, authentic dishes like the sweet sour fish filet, tofu and fish hotpot, and fried rice with crab meat sauce.
