Review of China Wing

Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 July 2017

China Wing was a stop on my Summer Eating Adventures Tour 2017.
A few weeks ago, our group was looking for a cuisine new to all of us, which is a hard thing to find in a group of foodies. None of us had ever eaten Korean food (not a lot of it to be had in Charlotte we discovered.) After a quick search we found China Wing and we were off.
First the good - our wait person was amazing. She knew her food. She asked us questions about preferences and aversions and then made recommendations for us. Since we were all new to Korean food she suggested that we order several dishes and share them family style. We all agreed that this was a good call. She suggested Beef Bulgogi and Dolsot Bibimbap (served with Kim Chee) as entrees and Kim Chee Pancake and Korean style wings as a first course. We enjoyed the food, though we each had our own preferences. My favorites were the Beef Bulgogi and the Kim Chee Pancake. I enjoyed the others but not as much as these. I don't enjoy Korean food as much as I do Vietnamese or Thai, but it is much preferable to the Americanized Chinese food so readily available. The food at China Wing was well prepared, not greasy or heavy, and well presented. I recommend this for anyone wanting to experience Korean food. We weren't disappointed.
Now the cons - The facilities leave much to be desired. I'm all about a dive restaurant, but this isn't a dive. I feels unclean and has an odd odor like stale cleaning water. I recommend that you get take out. And it is pricey. We spent $15.00 each for lunch and drank only water. The portions are small, so there isn't any "bang for your buck" here. I will return at some point because I found the food interesting enough to give it another go, but this will be more of a yearly adventure for me. My honest rating would be a 3.5/ better than average but less than very good.

I don't know about the other reviews, but this was really good. I had wings (Chinese not Korean) order spicy as my appetizer. Best wings I've had outside of hooters! Generals chicken was a little crispy but very good. All of my food was cooked to order- had to let it cool off before I could eat it. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Travelling thru Charlotte, we stopped for lunch at china wings after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. The general theme is there aren't any good Korean restaurants in Charlotte but if you need a fix, this is the best that they have to offer. The dolsot bibimbap was okay. The Kimchi Chigae was also good. The bulgogi was sickening sweet and the Jajameung was awful. You can always tell a good Korean restaurant by the side dishes that comes free with your meal. They only gave two dishes and one was kimchi. So in a nutshell, if you are dying for korean food, this place will do in a pinch but it is relatively expensive and mediocre at best. If you can hold out for a few more hours and heading south, stop in Atlanta where there are a ton of choices.

I was looking for Korean food in the area. I found this to be a Korean, Chinese, wings, and other type of food. I ordered the BimBim Bap with beef and came with kimchi. Inexpensive good food. I ate there, only person to do so at the time, others took take out. Drank a big Kirin beer. Good service too.
