I came to this restaurant only because our regular Chinese food restaurant had closed and my family and figured we would try this place. It's very crowded the tables are extremely close to each other and it seems to take the waitress way to long to clean the tables. My husband was able to eat a lot from the buffet... More

Not much to say, you don't even get what you pay for here at this establishment. First off the buffet price is not what you think, since you are forced to buy a drink with a meal. Second, there is next to no selection of food and third - what is there is completely unsatisfying in taste and quality. To... More

We have eaten at Chinese buffets all across Canada and the US (see reviews). I would rank this as a "C-" -- that is, passing, but just barely. Selection is distinctly Canadian-Chinese: (a couple of spare rib dishes; deep-fried chicken balls, sweet and sour, very few stir-fried dishes; heavy on deep-fried fare). We went here for dinner. When we arrived,... More

Our family of 4 just ate supper here. We read some reviews ahead of time & felt confident enough to try it out - judging from the outside, this is a place I normally would not consider. It was, odd. The inside is strange & shabby (seats ripped, fake flowers, very cramped). We all ordered the buffet. It was very... More

We visited on a Sunday for the buffet. The buffet had a lot to choose from, and what I tried, I liked. The items were spicy and tasty, but the staff was not really friendly, although quite fast. The room looks a bit run down and is very small.

My dad loves The china king restaurant. The service is prompt, but isn't overly warm. The Buffet was hot with a fair bit to choose from which was nice. You see the workers coming in and out replacing it frequently which is also nice to see. The restaurant is kind of a hole in the wall and though it hasn't... More

This is an older small Chinese Resturant with a reasonable sized Buffett which is available for both eat in and take out service. The staff were very friendly and we were satisfied with the Buffett so can not comment on the service given for items chosen from the menu. All selections were reasonably priced and the place is Licensed. The... More
