This great little hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant is really good! No delivery, only a few inside tables so mostly take-out you pick up. We love their food! (And we're kind of picky!) All employees are Chinese. Very authentic! Not cheap but not expensive either. Fast prep, fresh ingredients and nice staff. Call ahead to order!

Pretty tasteless food. Textures were strange, as in the beef in the beef & broccoli felt spongy. I didn't spit it out but ended up throwing most of it away.

We went to China King and really liked the ambience and the food - Everything was really delicious and fresh - It had both Chinese and Japanese cuisine which I loved and everything that my family ordered and subsequently tasted was super tasty!

I ordered General Tso's chicken... Chicken was terrible. Tasted old. Also found a metal piece in my food about halfway through eating... Would give 0 stars if I could

Decided to order in with the family so we choose China King...how could you go wrong with Chinese food, right? This place is wring for several reasons. I guess because they are probably the only Chinese food place in KDH They feel that they can take advantage by charging an exorbitant amount of $$ for so little food...a quart of... More

I have to be honest: I wasn't expecting a great meal, but was disappointed nevertheless. I was foolishly optimistic that the tables in the restaurant were an indication that even though they catered to the take-out/delivery crowd, they would provide a decent eat-in experience. I was wrong. What can I say: no hot tea, no chopsticks, no napkins. One woman... More

This is a strip mall Chinese place that was not good at anything we ate except the Battered Sesame Chicken was OK.

Dropped in for a quick lunch. This place is a little restaurant in a strip center. Ordered sweet and sour chicken. It was tasteless and the breading around the chicken made it look like a lot of chicken but the breading was mostly hollow with small pieces of chicken inside. How do they do that? I ordered a bottled soda... More

What a nice surprise. A pretty clean place with plenty of sitting space and a fast efficient kitchen. Not all that typical for strip mall Chinese restaurants, but very much the case here. The food was outstanding and the prices very reasonable. Prompt and effective service.
