“Nice place for a quick chinese meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Located at a busy intersection, Hai King does some good basic chinese food; soups are good tho mains tend to be rather greasy at times; lots of options in seafood as well as beef/chicken, even some veggie food;
Service is quick & efficient; the upstairs terrace is a better seating option, tho a bit noisy; the aircondioned room below can get claustrophobic;
Its the go-to place for a satisfying, not too expensive chinese meal;

“Good food, but very noisy environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

Hai King is situated on a busy corner of 2 main streets. On the balcony the good food which comes quick unfortunately gets mixed with traffic fumes and -noises which lest the reatsurant a little down. Inside of course you do not have that problem

“2nd in benin VERRY GOOD RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2009

Notice to all tourists, all those who love good food make a tower this Chinese restaurant is the best I would even say that some resto here in France who does not prepare meiu that it is really excellent, a friendly atmosphere, good Chinese dishes and a good price then I say unbeatable compared to other Asian restaurant in Benin, will eat their egg rolls, fried rice and then their famous cast or there is anything you like, in fact with this restaurant you can eat our fill with only 10 euro wouahouuuuu !!!!!!!!!!!!! and after dinner there is a surprise waiting for you!
when I went to Benin I really loved this restaurant I keep going there with all my mates
