This restaurant is a bit old. The sign over the door is quite faded. Casual. If you are looking for basic, average Chinese food - for example egg rolls that do not cost $10 and you just want comfort food; this is your place. I...would probably recommend take out. Dining in is okay but home is probably nicer.More

Service was good. Food was less than satisfactory. Shredded pork in garlic sauce was so spicy it was painful to eat. We ordered mild! Very little pork mostly uncooked carrots in a watery sauce. Won ton soup good; egg drop soup also good. The owner...is devoid of any personality and essentially couldn’t care less. Sad, this was once a nice place to eat. Try Bangkok Thai in Beverly Hills.More

Excellent wonton soup and crab rangoons. Big portions and flaming hot! Excellent value. Just what we needed to brave the cooler temps and warm our bellies.

We stopped by for a late lunch on Christmas Day. Mr. King’s was packed! I knew it would be good then. We apparently arrived at the perfect time. We got the last table available and people were coming in after us. The restaurant only has...10-12 tables so you might have to wait a little while to be seated. We ordered Crab Rangoon to start with with Oolong Tea. For our entrees we had honey chicken and salt and pepper cod. Both entrees were absolutely amazing! The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. I highly recommend Mr. King’s.More

Hadn’t been to Mr.King’s for a few years and thought I’d give it a try. Our crab Rangoon was good as is the wonton soup (although a tad salty for my) My husband had the Mongolian beef with he ordered hot and he was very...pleased with it. I had the House Garlic Shrimp which was way too sweet for my taste. Wasn’t expecting that of the from a garlic sauce, but the positive is that there was plenty of sauce which I usually like. It is a small portion of rice that comes with the dinners, FYI. All in all, I’d give them another try just with a sauce that isn’t on the sweet side.More

Attentive, knowledegable service, family owned, reasonable prices, good foood. We went on a Friday night. Get there before 6 PM. They do a thriving take out business that could slow down service. They serve wine & beer.

Ingredients were of good quality, take out was hot, but it was lacking in … everything else. We oder Kung pao chicken and Szechuan shredded pork. We ordered both spicy. Both were totally without any kind of spice. Bland, bland, bland. Not sure if they...forgot to make it spicy, or if this is their version of spicy. We probably won’t try again.More

We had pulled into a parking lot to check our directions when we found this place and decided to give it a try. It's an older looking location, but make sure you stop in for some great Chinese food. We also noticed alot of people...using the drive thru. And now we know why. And they won't break your bank. Good service and friendly. I would stop again when I'm in the area. Great food.More

Guess we got them on a MISS night. Epic fail. Both of us ill. My fried shrimp was 3/4s oily-greasy batter, 1/4 tough overcooked inedible shrimp. Fried Rice was - fried rice. That's all. Chicken Chow Mein thick, starchy, is glumpy a word? Tasteless. Teriyaki...Beef too tough to chew. Moo Goo was burned! The sauce also glumpy, thick and starchy tasteless. Most of it went in the trash. Good luck!More

I received a confirmation when I emailed Mr. King and we have reservations now (probably won't matter much due to the small seating area but we went on Christmas once and it was great!)
