My buddy calls this place styrofoam heaven. They give you a lot of food and there dishes have a lot of veggies in them. The place is better than china star that i think went down hill. Only comment is the restuarant could use a good cleaning. We do take out only!

The China King off 55th St. recently added a lunch buffet. They have a good variety of choices. Prepared in smaller portions so nothing tastes like it's been sitting for an hour. A steal at less than $7.00.

Fast good and plenty. Great go to for a quick family dinner. Crowd pleaser. So what if it's cash only. Since when is that the basis for good value. Bring cash take home a tummy full of good food. Fast and friendly.

We didn't find anything we didn't like. Food was good and plentiful. Plan on a big appetite or sharing. Service was pleasant. Had to wait a bit for the food but it was prepared upon ordering so it was good and hot. Would do it again if in the area.

We ordered carry out from this restaurant on July 5, 2014. The prices were very good, and the food was really delicious. They forgot two egg rolls, but by the time we realized it, we didn't want to go back, since it was 10 miles from our hotel. We will order again, but check our order before leaving, next time....

Great food and a great value. The place itself is nothing special, but the food is good! I always call ahead and pick it up. If you dig Chinese food this is the place to grab and dash!

Cash only which leaves a real bad taste in the mouth to start with. Then add in service about as terrible as you could ask for and it's strike two. Finishing the strikeout is food that basically was less than quality. I should have known with the place empty and having to order at the counter this was going to... More
