Every time we visit Palm Springs we always visit the China King. It is staffed by authentic Chinese people who really provide excellent, friendly service. The food is good, tasty and hot. Of course we had ordered a sizzling hot recipe and that's how it was served. For good Chinese food presented well and for a reasonable price we have... More

We decided to meet another couple for dinner and this place we have never tried before. The atmosphere is very open. The wait staff was good and attended to our needs. Once we ordered, the food was delivered promptly. The won ton soup was great. The entrees we ordered were ok, nothing out of the ordinary. Once we done eating,... More

Low key, casual place serves pretty good Chinese food. Seems popular for take out. We have had better hot and sour soup at other restaurants. Rate it fair. Happy Family was better tasting with much seafood and meats. Rate it good. Not a bad meal and reasonable prices. Free street parking nearby.

Completely tasteless rice and the worst Chinese entrée I've ever had in any Chinese restaurant in the world

While I can't comment on the location itself or the atmosphere, I can on the food. I ordered delivery one day through Postmates and, wow! I haven't been able to find great Chinese food until now. The chicken didn't have the fried, grisly pieces but instead plump juicy pieces. The white rice had the right about of stick to it.... More

From the outside and the inside we were surprised that the food we has was good. The food came out hot and exceeded our expectations. The service was ok but I wouldn't call it friendly.

As group of golfers we ate at a range of restaurants throughout the week. This one was by far the worst. Food choice seemed good but the reality of the dishes didn't live up to that. Bland and uninteresting. Ribs we had as starter came out cold and had to be sent back - no apology! Other dishes lacked any... More

I ordered the orange chicken. It was breaded chicken coated with orange sauce.. no veggies or water chesnuts. Was basic and tasty. Came with about a one cup portion of what looked like brown rice. I was satisfied as I was eating alone. The place is very bare and basic. I would eat here again, but if I was dining... More

Large menu, good food, atmosphere not so much. There was a slight odd smell to the place, but everything else was good. Service was great, friendly staff.
