I've been a regular since king du opened in harlow some years back. I've seen its reputation grow in a positive way. My issue is that over the years the quality of some of the dishes have changed for the worse. I don't know if this is a chef thing, supplier thing or just due to general cut backs. The yakisoba noodles dishes in particular are a lot smaller than they used to be and now in my opinion have way to much sauce on them, to this point where your last few noodles are floating in a sea of sauce. I'll still go there on occasion to enjoy some of the non noodle dishes you can't get elsewhere, however I fear it's only a matter of time before those dishes decrease in quality.

The best place to go in Harlow for a tasty low cost meal, normally busy because of this and therefore at peak times it is wise to book in advance. The staff are friendly and efficient. This is as stated a noodle bar, the food is straight from the wok and is well cooked incorporating fresh vegetables, there is normally only a short wait between ordering and delivery at the table. The clientele is mixed but tends towards young adults and family groups, All round great value for money.

King du is the best chinese place I have ever been to. The location is a shame but does not stop me telling every one I know about this place! Incredibly cheap yet the food is so fresh and they offer big portions.

A very good local noodle bar, excellent service with waiting staff food follows very quick with drinks almost straight away.. Price very reasonable .. Must book during busy times.. You won't get in.

Easy parking,
Simple menu
Decent staff, service.
They are not the most organised, hence food will come hap hazard and to be fair the menu does clarify this right at the begging so is not a surprise.
They do ask/request to pay the bill in advance.
The food when it arrived was not the tastiest and hence the rating. The dumplings were not up to taste and prawn fried rice was served in a sauce which was too sweet.
