“Delicious Authentic Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Okay, you have to admit with me-some Chinese restaurants are not altogether that clean. Mr. Kings is spotless, the food is great-AND you can order from the authentic Chinese offerings and soups as well as our traditional Chinese-American foods-like sweet & sour, etc. I love the soups, the delicious vegetables, beef and spinach or green bean entrees, the hot and sour soup is my favorite. The prices are excellent, quick and courteous service, nice decorations and oriental music, the servers are all Asian and very nice. After you become a "regular" you feel more like family than guests. My friends are Chinese and they eat at Mr. Kings almost every day when they are in Citrus County (half time of the year). We go at least three times each month for dinner.

“One of the best in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

My wife and I eat at Mr Kings weekly and when we have friends and family visiting, we take them to Mr Kings. I have eaten asian food throughout the USA and in many other countries. Mr Kings the best asian restaurant... Always fresh and we have loved every dish we have had there. Some unique and great dishes include Ginger beef, Chinese eggplant Sechzuan, chicken with blackbean sauce and on and on.... Great owners and wonderful wait-staff. Mr Kings is very small and in an old strip mall... it is a hidden secret.
