Stopped here for lunch the other day and what a disappointment. This had to of been the worst Chinese food I ever ate....well only tried it then threw it in the garbage. Hot/sour soup was gross as well as the rest of the chicken dishes we had. First and last time!

We ordered take-out for lunch and ate in the park nearby. It was our 20th wedding anniversary and we had eaten Chinese in a park for our honeymoon. Not such a good choice. Our pork chow mien had about 1-2 pieces of grizzly meat and had no flavor. The same can be said for my meal choice, chicken lo mien.... More

We stopped here on our way through town for lunch. The food tasted good and was plentiful. They had places to sit and eat, but it was not a restaurant where you order from a waitress. We ordered and paid at the counter, and they called to us when it was ready and we went and got it ourselves and... More

We always have excellent food here - everything is freshly cooked with the best ingredients. Typical American-Chinese style that always satisfies. Being in a small resort town, it would be easy to be an average restaurant, but Lion King is always excellent. They have a small dine in area, but readily accommodate carry outs. I would recommend to any friend... More

We ordered the Chicken and Broccoli to go, the rice was very well cooked but the chicken sauce had no flavor. We like the dish locally but this dish was to greasy for are liking.  If your traveling and want to eat out don't forget to ask for paper plates and plastic forks and knives we didn't. Don't forget to... More

I recently moved back to Old Forge. I never thought I would find good Chinese food here but this place never disappoints. It is as good as anything I have had in big cities. The service is nice and quick. They have a great reputation and it really softens the blow of small town living to have these guys open... More

I've been here twice. The restaurant seems to do mostly take-out service, but they have a small dining room. Both times, we were seated quickly. I was a little surprised the first time that the food didn't get delivered to the table - we picked it up at the counter. Well, no matter. The first meal was really greasy. Not... More

We went to this Chinese restaurant on a whim, surprised to even find a Chinese restaurant in Old Forge, and were pleasently surprised. The food is good and the portions are generous. The pint is enough for one person, and the qwuart is enough for two. This restaurant is indeed run by a Chinese family.
