Decided to order in with the family so we choose China King...how could you go wrong with Chinese food, right? This place is wring for several reasons. I guess because they are probably the only Chinese food place in KDH They feel that they can take advantage by charging an exorbitant amount of $$ for so little food...a quart of... More

I have to be honest: I wasn't expecting a great meal, but was disappointed nevertheless. I was foolishly optimistic that the tables in the restaurant were an indication that even though they catered to the take-out/delivery crowd, they would provide a decent eat-in experience. I was wrong. What can I say: no hot tea, no chopsticks, no napkins. One woman... More

This is a strip mall Chinese place that was not good at anything we ate except the Battered Sesame Chicken was OK.

Dropped in for a quick lunch. This place is a little restaurant in a strip center. Ordered sweet and sour chicken. It was tasteless and the breading around the chicken made it look like a lot of chicken but the breading was mostly hollow with small pieces of chicken inside. How do they do that? I ordered a bottled soda... More

What a nice surprise. A pretty clean place with plenty of sitting space and a fast efficient kitchen. Not all that typical for strip mall Chinese restaurants, but very much the case here. The food was outstanding and the prices very reasonable. Prompt and effective service.

My wife an I went for a late night meal. This was not our fist choice but we did have a good meal. The place is small and the place was noisy. There was a lot of to go orders picked up while we waited for our meal. We shared the chicken and broccoli dinner and it was good.

This is my neighborhood Chinese take out, and as I've worked my way through half their extensive menu over the last 2 years, I have to say their food is consistently great quality, cooked to perfection and seasoned exactly as I have requested. ( 'a little spicy' ' please add garlic' etc.) They are professional, warm and efficient. I always... More

We usually get a take out from this place, You can eat in but you will eat on paper plates. The food is really good and they will work with you if you have an allergy to anything.
