Very simple, very good chinese food.

This is a local restaurant that we like to go to for simple Chinese food. It does not have stuff in it that a lot of people pick around and don't want. What you see on the menu is what you get, plain and simple. The food is served fresh and hot. The personnel is very efficient and friendly... read more

My father and I have been on a search of San Antonio for great Chinese food. So far we have not found one that we would recommend or bother going back to. The latest is King' Bowl on Babcock. Service was great! Could not have asked for better. I started with egg drop soup. Not bad, just a little too... More

This restaurant is one of the best. Large plates &very good food. Their hot & sour soup is award winning. They will make your food fresh to order. I have a child that has allergies. The staff pays extra attention to his order and it comes out perfect every time. This place is the best.

The exterior of this building doesn't give this place justice. Go inside to dine and you will find a beautifully decorated place. The bathrooms are super clean and beautiful. I always just went thru the drive thru till today. I was pleased to find the inside so beautiful. The waitresses were very nice. However, it was extremely busy on Sunday... More

This restaurant is very close to my house so I go there quite often. To be honest, it never fails me! Food: Their dishes taste so good and they are so generous on the portion size that most people will ask for to-go boxes. They recently hired a Chinese Chef so now they serve authentic/ real Chinese dishes as well... More

The restaurant itself is nothing to write home about but the food and service are. We had the family special which was going for under eleven bucks per person.For that you got a bowl of very good hot and sour soup or a bowl of wonton soup.then came an egg roll which we thought were great and tasted homemade .Next...

It may not look like much from the outside, and the inside is very modest, but the food is great and among the best Chinese in San Antonio. It is perfect for my budget as a college student. They also have a drive thru.
