Staff are very friendly, and always cater for my seafood allergy. The meals are tasty and reasonably priced compared to other Chinese Restaurant. Yes the interior is dated but that does not reflect on the food quality. I find a main meal and rice feed me and my daughter or son, and everything is cooked from scratch I have seen... More

If this is how front of house looks, I dread to think what the kitchen looks like. Ordered take away over the phone. Took at least 15 minutes for person to take our order down. Was advised would be 20 minutes. Went to pick up and was 45 minutes in total to get order. The waiting area was horrific. Please... More

Went with one of my friends on a Sunday evening. We were after plum chicken and even though it wasn't on the menu they were more then happy to make us some! We sat down and the two lovely Service girls offered us water and another drink within 5 minutes of being seated. Overall fantastic service, amazing food, and quaint... More

Delicious food. Always cooked fresh. If you want a great feed of chinese then this is the place to come (in devonport) if you want very authentic chinese then you fly to China. Very happy with Sky King !

We visited the Sky King Restaurant, Devonport recently and were very disappointed with the food and service. When we arrived the restaurant was empty, but the “Takeaway” section was busy. The interior of the restaurant was cold, uninviting and seemed to lack any warmth or character. We were the only eat-in customers for a while. For entrée we shared “Mini... More

I thought we would give this new management a go but am very disappointed. Most of the dishes were mainly cauliflower and broccoli. The prices are very high as well. $21.00 for King prawns and veg consisted of 6 med prawns (still with the veins in, so gritty) and the rest was cauli and broccoli. Tasteless and expensive.

Changed hands a while ago. Gave it 3 tries. Each time its gotten worse. Final straw was frozen fish fillets in sweet n sour fish. I complained and they acted like they didn't understand English. Never again.

We frequently get takeaway from Sky King to eat at home, it's a much healthier alternative to other "fast food" joints. I've found that there is a great variety of dishes for all tastes. We always get the dishes with vegetables, they are delicious. Sliced fish in ginger and shallot with vegetables is my favorite. They also make amazing spicy... More

Hearing it had changed hands we felt we should try the new style Sky King.. Nothing fancy, but every dish was tasty, the servings were reasonably sized and the plates were heated ( a big tick as it is something many restaurants neglect) $3.50 a head for Chinese tea seemed steep so we stuck to water -guess it's the lack...

Used to love this place and it hadn't hit the mark for a while on its service & food. New owners in town and the difference in the food was amazing. Same menu's but a whole new look and thankfully some nice tastes coming out of the dishes. My partner had the crunchy lemon chicken and it was beautifully presented... More
