“Always Hits the Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Reasonable prices. Tasty dishes. Good sized portions. Usually consomme soup included. A couple of my favorite selections are #106 Cantonese Chow Mein $7.95 and #122 Sizzling Golden Beef $11.95. Rice and Sweet/Sour sauce only $1.00 each. Licenced premises at affordable prices.

“Not Fancy but Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We have been going to this restaurant for several years. Nothing has changed much in that time. If you want fancy décor, this place is not for you. If you want good food at reasonable prices, then drive straight to it.
ATMOSOPHERE; quite dimly lit, and usually very quiet. They do a tremendous take-out business as opposed to indoor dining. Seems clean (except area around cash register could be tidied up --- lots of papers and magazines stacked.)
SERVICE; always good with usually just one server on duty.
FOOD; tasty and well-prepared --- looks fresh. Portions are substantial for the price ranging from $8-10 for basic dishes.
Parking on Main St. or side streets.

“Always excellent food, service is lacking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place has excellent Chinese food, and prices are great. Service can be very slow if they are busy and there is only one server on at all times, so that can slow down the service also. The food makes up for the service. Interior.Exterior needs updating badly.
Overall wonderful food.

“Tasty and economical”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

Ocean King has a good variety of Cantonese dishes. The dishes I sampled were quite tasty and generously portioned, and prices were very reasonable. The service was good.

The dining room's decor is pretty dated, but it has a certain retro charm. A sound choice for a simple meal out.
