We order from China Kitchen fairly regularly and consider it the best Chinese take-out in St. Petersburg. (That said, if you are used to New York or west coast options, you will probably be disappointed.) Their steamed dumplings, General Tso's chicken, salt and pepper shrimp, and various lo meins are all very good, and they are accurate in estimating the... More

Don't let the modest appearance fool you. The food is fantastic and the portions are large. It's a great value overall. It's mostly a take-out restaurant, but there are a few tables there, if you wanted to dine in. I ordered steamed vegetables and shrimp, steamed dumplings and cold sesame noodles. I ordered a few things to sample. There was... More

First off, let's be clear; this is take-out, not fine dining. SO, that being said, this was pretty good food. We moved here from Chicago and have been searching for "good" take-out Chinese. We have NOT returned twice to anywhere else we have tried, and once even threw an entire bag of food away, it was that bad. This place... More

China Kitchen is a super solid go-to when your day goes to hell and you need reliable takeout. My particular favorites are beef and string beans and the curry shrimp. The all fried appetizer platter is a guilty pleasure and ranks probably as a venal sin, but it tastes sooo good. Oh, and whatever you get will probably stretch to... More

I went here on the strength of other reviews. The hot and sour soup was way too spicy hot. Couldn't even eat it. The pork fried rice was dry and tasteless. Nothing tasted fresh made. I'll keep looking for a good Chinese restaurant around St. Pete.

Plenty of vegetarian options and the food is pretty well made in a small amount of time. This is my go to place for lunch.

if you seek fast, well-made chinese food, always piping hot and fresh tasting, this is your place. You can eat in, but cafeteria ambiance. The hot and sour was thick and spicy. It can be made vegetarian style. Many vegetarian options. The sczechuan shrimp were large and not over-cooked. utensils and plates upon request.

The food is not bad, not very spicy so you will need to ask for extra hot if you what hot food. The taste is not bad for strip mall food, you can get a meal for two for under $20.

Walking distance to several hotels and our downtown condo (located next to the Publix). Often pick up food to take home. Food is fresh, very large portions. Can make 2-3 meals from one of their dinners. They are willing to cook with white chicken meat upon request (for $1 more). I get white rice, it's always perfectly done. Highly recommend... More
