Take out was fast and food was tasty

Went there for take out at the recommendation of my co-workers. The food was good and well priced. Not as fresh tasting as I prefer for Chinese food.

Always hot, always delicious, always friendly service! Tried other shops, because they are closer, no comparison! I drive across town for China Doll! It's the best!

You have to experience true Chinese food. This restaurant has been serving customers of Kingston for decades. Food is delicious, true home cooking served always perfect. Worth every penny to visit Joan and Kenny and let them prepare true chinese dishes,

This is one of the oldest family run Chinese restaurants in Kingston. It is in need of a serious update in terms of decor and cleanliness. The food was as expected (basic Canadian/ Chinese dishes).

I'll keep this short but not that sweet: This restaurant was not chosen by me for our weekly dinner out but I was game to try a different place as we always eat at Silver Wok. We will NOT be back: lousy service, ordinary food & absolutely disgusting (stinky & dirty) ladies restroom. If the washroom is filthy, you have... More
