China King restaurant in Port Hawkesbury is our favourite place to eat. Chinese Buffet has a great variety of food and is kept well stocked. I have a food allergy (celiac) and the restaurant prepares my food special for me. Maggie the hostess is very friendly and knowledgeable and after your first visit she will remember your preferences for any... More

China King in Port Hawkesbury has to be the worst Chinese food I have ever had. Myself and a guest were there yesterday...the buffet was doughy, fatty, tasteless and overall TERRIBLE. Add to that a one or two year old child running around the dining room screaming for his mother's attention while she served patrons ( not too many people... More

Wow! Things must have changed since some of these reviews or else they're paid plants. The buffet was very small, but that in itself might not have been a problem. The broccoli in two dishes was cooked to mush & I don't think it was just from being on the line too long because things were barely warm. I had... More

Every time we go to Port Hawkesbury we have a meal at the China King. I must confess none of us have ever eaten off the menu because the buffet is so varied and plentiful. The service is very friendly and the food has always been wonderful. We have gone there with many different friends and nobody has even been... More

My partner and I were on a long trip from Sydney, Cape Breton to the Annapolis Valley and we stopped her for supper buffet. I wasn't sure about the place at first because it was small, dingy(but clean), and crowded but the staff was very friendly, and food was awesome! For sure one of the best Chinese we've had :)

The food is hot and always served promptly. Decor is a little dinggy yet it is clean. The food is good and quite a variety in the buffet.

It was a wet night, my friends and I were tired and staying at the hotel across the road. We turned up at closing time and were welcomed by a charming woman who went out of her way to serve us. The buffet was tired and already being cleared but the staff rallied and fed us well. we liked the... More

Food always hot and delicious. Can always count on great service and food selection. Price a bit high for lunch but for an evening meal and additional dishes available is worth the price.

Although a little rund down in appearance from the outside the decor inside is clean and comfortable. The waitress was very friendly and the buffet we had was good with plenty of choice for a very reasonable CAN $13.99 each.
