More authentic than most "Chinese" restaurants. Nothing fancy but service is great and food is good. Environment is pretty typical for small mom'n'pop restaurants. Quite a lot of variety n the menu from lo mein to Szechwan fare. I had a chicken stir fry with white rice which was very good. Rice was perfectly cooked. I couldn't begin to eat... More

Went to Mr. King for lunch date with my husband. They may have been short handed , not busy, the service was really slow. The waiter basically ignored us, and when he did come to our table, he was very rushed. We tried the dumplings. They were ok. The Crab rangoon was ok. No crab to be found but they... More

We moved to the area 4 months ago, and were looking for some good Chinese food. Not as good a choice as we had in the Washington, DC area. We found Mr, Kings after looking on Google and some word or mouth. We liked the food, but found the restaurant to be fairly spartan in decor. Good crowd, that I... More

Our first visit and it won't be our last. I inquired about the chicken chow mein and to my delight it was the old fashioned way not the kind with noodles. It was delicious and steaming hot. Hubby had egg foo young and he said it was yummy. We both got egg drop soup which was hot and very flavorful.... More

Service was a little lacking. She got my soup order wrong and when we realized a certain ingredient was in the fried rice, she said "well you'll just have to pick it out" and did not offer to make it without. There were 2 people stuffing fried wontons into crinkly paper bags, shaking them down and then stapling the bags... More

Mr. KING has always, always, for years been our favorite Chinese restaurant. We always send people there when asked for good Chinese. Something has changed for the worse. There were crumbs on the seat, the table was sticky. The crunchy noodles were stale. There was no spicy hot in Generals Taos Chicken and they got my order wrong! The whole... More

Being newer residents in this area we were hungry for some good Asian food recently. Had read other positive reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give Mr King a try. Sechwan beef & beef lo mein were piping hot and ready to carry out in 10 short minutes. Soo delicious and so reasonably priced! Went back several days later... More

Every time we travel to Crystal River we can't wait to eat Mr. Kings! Not only are the staff extremely friendly and the food is absolutely wonderful. The good old-fashioned drive-through is really cool! This is a must eat destination in this part of Florida!
