A fire Sunday night damaged one of Houston's most essential restaurants.

Around 11:45 p.m. January 24, a fire started inside Fung's Kitchen in Sharpstown, according to a report by KTRK.

Nobody was hurt in the fire as the restaurant was closed, but Houston Fire officials told KTRK that the fire “caused significant damage.”

Fung's Kitchen, which has been a mainstay for 30 years, is known for its celebrated dim sum service. Chef-owner Hoi Fung has cooked for former President George H.W. Bush in his restaurant, among other dignitaries.

In 2013, Houstonia named it one of the restaurants that define Houston's dining scene, and in 2018 we lauded Fung's as one of the city's essential 25 restaurants.

No word yet on the future of Fung's Kitchen.
