This was always my Mom's favourite Chinese restaurant and I miss it. Good, quality Chinese food. Delicious egg rolls (Michigan style, which you don't seem to be able to get anywhere else on the planet.)

We had lunch which included soup, egg roll and entree with tea. good food. I like the kung po chicken and hot and sour soup. They also have crab dumpling instead of the egg roll if you wish.

I ordered from Mountain King for the first time yesterday, 2/27/2014. I can say without a doubt that it will be my last time. I ordered 4 meals and paid way too much ($40) for what I received. To start, when I got to the restaurant, they did not have my carry-out order ready by the time they told me... More

Mountain King is kinda the only game in town for B'hamites. Since many of them won't leave the city limits, MK secures enough business to stick around. Bad food, bad service, dirty restaurant (most just get takeout, so you miss this important detail). There was a day when they made some decent dishes, but when they moved to the current... More

I am desperate for good Chinese food in the Detroit area. Since this is the local Chinese restaurant to my home, I have tried it a few times. It is average at best, and I always find myself driving further or paying more for better food.

Mt. King was a family favorite of ours 20-25 years ago and we gradually dropped it is better alternatives appeared. We stopped by for an early Christmas dinner. Food was Ok. We had good Kung Pao Chicken. The General Tso, instead of breast meat was a mix of white and dark and had a lot of gristle. Disappointing. The hot... More

I work in Birmingham and have gotten takeout a couple of times and have been very disappointed. Food is kind of pricey and very bland. Luckily there are 2 really good Thai places nearby

Mountain King is a typical American Chinese restaurant with a bit more variety that standard. I have alway found their food to be of very good quality and the dine in servie very good. Carry out seems to be what I use most and the value is very good. Friendly staff and quick food turnaround make this a local standard.... More
