After several visits, I keep going back for a quick tasty and inexpensive lunch deal. Service is quick and the staff is quite nice - "Yes Ma'am," "Anything else Ma'am?" They are a kind crew and serve with a smile. Now, order from the menu or create your combination and they will work with you. There is a minimum for... More

Found a 2" stainless steel wire in my food. See photo. It's likely from a cheap wire brush they use to clean the grille. Had I ingested this wire, I would have likely ended up in the hospital as the wire was sharp enough to pierce my intestines. Yikes! I'll never set foot in this place again but if you... More

I really like the fast service but the food was just ok. Nothing memorable. It was decently priced though and the cashier was very helpful and friendly .

This take-out place offers the worst excuse for Chinese food I have ever had anywhere. It is simply terrible and there is no need to go there for anything but chopsticks. Most of what I ordered I threw out. I should have thrown it all out. The staff is about as friendly as stone. They don't seem to want you... More

Fresh, tasty and well cooked. We have been here for a few visits when time was of the essence between meetings and we have no regrets. Fast service - but stand outside while your food is cooking if you'd rather not leave carrying the various aromas in your clothing.

Recently I visited the establishment with my spouse. We were hoping to be able to enjoy the enbiance,and cuisine. However, that's not what we were able to do. We asked for simple substitution with our meal,but were denied. No one else was present. We asked if the television volume could be raised so that we were able to hear it,they... More

The fried rice was disappointing as were most of the appetizers. However, the entrees were great. The ambiance really wasn't made for dining in.

On a previous trip through Durham, I thoroughly enjoyed China King's neighbor, Bleu Olive and we had planned on trying Melo on this trip; but Melo was closed... So rather than go back to Bleu Olive and not knowing the area, we decided to have a quick meal at China King and be on our way. China King is typical... More

After travelling we had delivery from China King. There was Hot & Sour Soup, Egg Drop Soup , General Tso's Chicken and Steamed Shrimp and Vegetables. They did inform us that delivery would take an hour , due to it s being Friday night. The food we got was still hot, despite the wait time, and the driver was very... More
