When arrived were taken to table which was uneven [wonky] and there sollution was to put some cardboard underneath a leg which made it a little less wobbly.Staff were not very friendly and there english not the best either.Food was only average and this used to be one of the best chinese restaurants in wollongong.I think i will look elsewhere when looking for chinese food.

There's not much "traditional" about the place.
Expect overly sickly sweet dishes lacking in real vegetable components, in true "western style Chinese" form. Acceptable in the 80's, however with Chinese being the number one source of migrants to the area, I think nowdays we expect that Chinese food would mean local Chinese cuisine.
Not my cup of tea, but it might be yours if you just want to punish your guts with some honey chicken and fried rice.

Have been a regular for about 4 years. As a general claim the food is very good, but like all places can vary from visit to visit.
Offers a variety of cuisine, from Chinese, Thai & Western

Recently visited Kings, as we do (or used to do) occassionally. Ordered roast duck, when it came out there were live maggots in the dish. This is a disgrace. Owners claimed it was their suppliers fault, if so I hope they change their suppliers immediately and consistently check their food while preparing and serving to customers.

My girlfriend and I went there on the recommendation of hotel staff and we were very impressed . The Mango chicken in the bird's nest was incredible, and my girlfriend had chicken in the bird's nest, but it came with no sauce to top it off. When she asked for some honey sauce, this wasn't a problem. Staff were friendly and helpful, and knew the menu. It was also incredibly good value. I would definitely recommend King's to anyone looking for a value, delicious Chinese meal.
