The menu is extensive and comes with a good selection of teas, wines and beers. The restaurant has a no frills décor but the food is tasty. Pork, rice and steamed greens, along with a beer came to $20 for lunch.

Into BBQ King for what they are renown for, the Peking Duck. There were 6 hungry duck eaters, so we ordered 3x 2 Course Peking duck + a serve of BBQ Pork to start us off. The waitress took a little convincing that we wanted 3 ducks, but we eventually convinced her that we would manage to deal with the... More

I just wonder how people in 2014 can eat in such a place. For my opinion is not a restaurant.....take a look how clean is the shop before you eat there. Can you imagine the cuisine ? Good luck !

This is a no frills, good food Chinese restaurant. The service was efficient and polite. The food was excellent. BYO wine with a corkage price per person so take a good bottle with you. We ordered a banquet for 3 so don't be put off by the menu saying min 4 persons. That way you get a good variety.

been here several times over the years, on my own & with friends. Good for meat & rice dishes. Dirt cheap when with large groups and BYO wine. Don't expect anything special but a good authentic bbq Chinese feed. Worth a visit.

I have been going here for years although a gap since last visit. The normal dismissive waiters remain but the food has gone downhill in quality with the price rising. Unfortunately the BBQ pork and duck is very average and if your after a good peking duck try other places in chinatown. Once a favourite but a shell of its... More

I understand the problems faced by reviewers below. BBQ King is an institution, but you must 'know' what to order. BBQ Pork on rice, BBQ Duck on rice, and House soup for two with 'chopped chilli' on the side please. (Make sure you say 'pork ON rice' etc) That should do the two of you just fine. Deviate from this... More

Amazingly quick service with tasty food. Always a good choice for a quick feed in Chinatown. Chicken sweetcorn soup was a winner on a cold night!

If you are on a diet then you won't like this place. The attraction of this place is that it is opened until 2am in the morning. Roast pork and rice is not bad.
