We have lived in Leesburg for 13 years and have either eaten in or had food delivered from China King for about the same amount of time. Restaurant is nothing fancy but the food and service are good. The restaurant space is small and feels more like a diner when you are eating in . Never had a bad meal... More

We ate in the restaurant for dinner. Though some may find the interior to be "dated", we found it clean and charming. The small booths and simplicity reminded us of sitting in a small Chinese restaurant in NY city. Service was excellent. Food was flavorful and freshly prepared and had not been sitting in back being warmed. General Tso's chicken... More

Only a couple of tables inside, so I usually take out. Food is good and never had a any issues with the dishes. One of my top three Chinese restaurants in the county.

My wife and I had the dinner for 2. We started with soup. My wife chose the egg drop which was fairly good and I had the hot & sour which was mediocre. We both chose egg rolls and they were doughy tasting and flavorless for the most part. The cashew chicken was good and the seafood in lobster sauce... More

This is a dated chinese restaurant nothing notable except possibly the fact that everything tastes the same. My husband and I have been here many time and gotten take out but it never gets any better. I think we have finally quit trying to find something to like there.

China King was recommended by a local merchant as a good place to eat. Tripadvisor reviews generally supported this recommendation. We weren't disappointed. This is a little hole in the wall with about a dozen tables and booths. We came in about 6PM and by 6:30 there wasn't a seat available. The decor looks dated with lots of black and... More

Although a bit pricey, food is top notch, best meat in a Chinese restaurant by miles. Altering your dish is never a problem, example...Kung pao beef, one of their best dishes, I order with no green onion, white onion instead, extra peanuts. Much better, green onions make it bitter, but the beef a baby could eat. Shrimp always good as... More

Anytime we're in Leesburg we consider China King's as our place to stop. Go for the taste of the food and the attentiveness of the staff. You will not be disappointed with either. Prices are good and the amount of food is enough to fill you up, or more. They can steam you food as well. A great restaurant choice... More

Very attentive service, great food and very popular with locals. There is the typical wide array of menu offerings plus they offer brown rice as a nice alternative to white rice. Hands down the best Chinese in the area!

The China King is not your typical Chinese place with the kitschy stuff on the walls and asian music in the background. It's an old historic part of Leesburg in a building that is several hundred years old...and shows it. But the food is great, the people are nice and the prices very reasonable. Their Chinese food is better than... More
