After receiving recommendations for what to eat at KFG, we ended up ordering:
wanton soup
hot and sour soup
peking ravioli
sezhuan bean curd and pork
general gao chicken
chicken chow foon

It was a mixed bag. The wanton soup was fabulous - rich, flavorful broth, delicate pork dumplings, and a wanton wrapper with a perfect chew.
We did not like the hot and sour soup at all. Sorry if this sounds disgusting, but the flavor reminded me of diapers.
The peking ravioli were good, but my expectations were really high due to all the chowhound comments, and I have to say I didn't think they were as remarkable as many of you do.
The sezhuan bean curd was fantastic. Soft tofu in a rich, flavorful sauce. I would get it without the pork next time because the texture was a bit grizzly.
The general gao chicken was awful. The fried batter that encases the chicken tasted like stale cardboard. It was unedible and we had to send it back (which seemed to shock the waitress and chef. I guess that's not an appropriate custom.)
Finally, the chicken chow foon was very good. Two caveats: the noodles could have used more of the fantastic sauce and the quality of the chicken was not great.

The price of all this (minus the general gao chicken) came to $28. What a deal!
