I recommend lunch as the prices are very reasonable and there is plenty of food. The restaurant is small but I will go again.

This is some of the best Chinese food in the area. They always make it fresh when you order and it is my family's favorite. The atmosphere isn't great, but the food can't be beat. They have a lunch buffet, but I've only gotten take out. It's perfect for concerts in the park! Too much food for very little price.

Have been to many of these types of Chinese food restaurants in NE Iowa & the menus, quality/quantity of food & pricing are basically the same.

Always enjoy eating the lunch buffet here! It's small, but very reasonably priced and always stocked with fresh, hot food!

We really enjoy their food. Their crab Rangoon is not to be missed. The buffet is always very busy and food is fresh.

I love to pop in here and grab some crab rangoons and egg drop soup! They are quick and their food rocks. Inexpensive.

They have the best Chicken Chow Mein here! It is just like my grandmother use to make. It is in a creamy chicken sauce with lots of chicken, celery, veggies and crispy noodles. They also have a really decent lunch buffet with about 8 different types of food for $5.50 a person.

Looked up this place on tripadvisor and went out of my way to eat at a highly rated Chinese restaurant. Turned out to be only average.

I met a friend at China King and enjoyed a lunch. I ordered the Happy Family and it was very good, not the best Chinese meal I've ever had but it was good and I will likely return to this place.

Being new to the area and knowing how difficult it can be to find a good Chinese carry out restaurant, we relied on the reviews and decided to give it a try. We went on a week night and were 1 of 3 people getting carry out. The servings were generous. The food was fresh. Egg rolls are good sized.... More
