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!

The atmosphere reminds me of a NY Chinese restaurant. The food is excellent-service is very good and friendly. This is our go-to restaurant when we want Chinese food. A bit of a drive from Ocala but well worth it!

I am not sure how this place gets such rave reviews, even the door is covered in these stickers saying best blah blah blah.. Everything tasted canned, the Egg drop soup, the sweet & sour sauce, even the batter on the chicken was tasteless. I barely ate any of it, so I brought it home to my room mates &... More
