We ordered takeout from this hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant. The food was edible but not much more. Do not bother.

Very pleased with this restaurant in the shopping area behind the Bayfront Hilton. The tofu, fried rice and fried scallops tasted very good and the portions were good sized. Very good value for the money. Limited tables, so this place is probably best for takeaway.

Christmas Eve. Everything in St. Pete is closed, except IHOP and China Kitchen. Ni hao! China Kitchen touts "New York Style Chinese Food", whatever that may be. Easy parking in a strip mall. The person taking phone orders was besieged with calls but kept our order straight. 15 minutes, piping hot. My orange shrimp was tasty, with a darker sauce... More

Great Chinese take out! I got the crab rangoons and they are amazing! I'll definitely be getting take out here again.

China Kitchen has never let me down they have been consistent each and every time I have ordered from them. I have been buying from them for the last 9 years( I think ) number 1 for me.

This is a typical fast food take away Chinese restaurant. Good selection of dishes and large helpings. Not the best, but fine for fast food.

Before writing this review, I have ordered from this location multiple times. They have a great selection of lunch specials and their chicken wings are the best!

Place your order at the counter, but anticipate waiting 20 minutes for it to be filled. This isn't fast food. Good, not fast.

The restaurant is in a strip center. Driving in and parking were crazy when we went. Atmosphere is really not meant for dining there, although you could. My pork lo mein & my husband's cashew chicken were pretty good, but the appetizer platter was just okay. I've had a hard time finding decent take-out Chinese in St. Pete, and this... More

Within the totally uninspiring strip mall location is a small gem. China Kitchen has consistently good food at reasonable prices. Portions are larger enough for two meals. The vegetable spring rolls are quite delightful. The shrimp and tofu dishes I've had (I don't eat meat) have been made-to-order good and come with the brown rice option I prefer. Staff are... More
