I ordered from Mountain King for the first time yesterday, 2/27/2014. I can say without a doubt that it will be my last time. I ordered 4 meals and paid way too much ($40) for what I received. To start, when I got to the restaurant, they did not have my carry-out order ready by the time they told me... More

I am desperate for good Chinese food in the Detroit area. Since this is the local Chinese restaurant to my home, I have tried it a few times. It is average at best, and I always find myself driving further or paying more for better food.

I work in Birmingham and have gotten takeout a couple of times and have been very disappointed. Food is kind of pricey and very bland. Luckily there are 2 really good Thai places nearby

Mountain King is a typical American Chinese restaurant with a bit more variety that standard. I have alway found their food to be of very good quality and the dine in servie very good. Carry out seems to be what I use most and the value is very good. Friendly staff and quick food turnaround make this a local standard.... More
