“Really Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

China King is an excellent Chinese place. Finding good Chinese food is definately a challenge in the Lancaster area so this is our definate go to place when we need Chinese food. The dishes are consistently delicious. The sweet couple who run the restaurant are friendly and they put a lot of pride into their food. The place is a little hole in the wall in a strip mall - it offers no frills in house dining but we prefer take out. The portions are generous and they offer a great value for your money. We love the Garlic chicken, chicken curry, shrimp fried rice, General Tso's shrimp, chicken and broccoli, won ton soup etc. I would probably stick to the basics here although we have never been disappointed with our choices so far.

“Not bad. Typical cheap Americanized Chinese food.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Hey, sometimes I love a nice order of cheap, Americanized Chinese food! Among the myriad of placed to obtain that stuff, this place is, eh, just average.

I ordered the Kung pao chicken. They breaded and fried the chicken. Not good. I like Kung pao with no breading.

The sauce was good, but not very spicy. The bill was just under $10. That's a bit high for cheap stuff.

At this place, keep it REALLY basic and get the lo mein or the pork fried rice. You won't be disappointed. Order anything more complicated than that at this place AT YOUR OWN RISK.

“Our favorite "little local Chinese"”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

China King is the typical strip mall Chinese restaurant; you walk up to a counter and place your order. You can of course do take out, but they have booths for "eat in" also, and it's such a nice, homey and clean place, we frequently stay.

The food is very good, maybe even very VERY good, the people take the time to get to know you and make you feel welcome. They have the best "General Tso's Tofu" of anywhere!
