I ordered take-out from this restaurant today. It was totally delish! The owner/operator is the friendliest person you would ever meet. They are so accommodating there. We actually order our Dart Banquet food from them and they are 45 miles away. Always a pleasure to eat in or take-out.

I reviewed this restaurant some years ago when it was a quite decent place to have Chinese food. It has changed hands. The last time (and I mean the LAST time) we ate there we had buffet I had the distinct feeling that the trays had been reheated from the previous day. As they say in New York, FAGEDDABOUDIT!

I don't understand the negative reviews ? Now if you are talking about the Rose Garden, I totally concur as I ate there one and became very ill...But never have I had a bad experience with China King. The staff is friendly and frequently check to see if you require anything else and ask how everything is. It is one... More

I come to this restaurant monthly. The buffet is good value and always offers something that you will enjoy. Nothing fancy but quick and convenient.

The buffet at the China King is really good. The food is fresh and hot. The desserts are not the greatest though. The service is wonderful, such a great staff. They are always fast and friendly.

Our family of three ate there this evening, and honestly I have to say it was one of the worst food experiences ever. We decided to try the buffet, it was small but looked good. Well the looks deceived us. The battered items only tasted of the really funky oil they were prepared in. The noodles and rice were almost... More

China King restaurant in Port Hawkesbury is our favourite place to eat. Chinese Buffet has a great variety of food and is kept well stocked.

China King in Port Hawkesbury has to be the worst Chinese food I have ever had. Myself and a guest were there yesterday...the buffet was doughy, fatty, tasteless and overall TERRIBLE. Add to that a one or two year old child running around the dining room screaming for his mother's attention while she served patrons ( not too many people... More
