We were staying at a nearby hotel and I noticed this place. After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to try it. We only ordered soup and an appetizer but they were both delicious. The subgum wonton soup was loaded with chicken, shrimp, roast pork and vegetables. Our shrimp toast was also delicious, although a bit greasy. Wish... More

Came to town and drove around looking for food. Figuring we we in a tourist area prices would be sky high. We have a place like this in our one red light town. The food here was better, and cheaper. We saw a lot of local folks hit this place up. You tourists should too.

You will not be disappointed by the food or service at China King. We have made it our staples for take-out food. The owners are so friendly and their service is quick. They are always glad to see you, and as a regular, they remember exactly what we like. One thing I like is that they keep the place clean,... More

By far one of the best if not the best in Lancaster County. It took us a few years of trying the food at other Chinese restaurants to settle on this one. The food is fresh, tasty, and the meat portions are good. They do not skimp on ingredients like other places. John and his family are amazing and we... More

China King has not only the best Chinese food but the service is friendly as well. John and Shoi are very friendly and aim to please. They treat their customers great and I will not go anywhere else.

Was out with my wife. We stopped here because we have been hungry for some Chinese after Christmas shopping. This place uses fresh vegetables that they buy every day and they are on the stiff and semi crunchy side. The owner and his wife and three or four other employees. The owner is so friendly. He welcomed me and my... More

Great Chinese food! I have been eating their food for over 20 years without ever being disappointed. All food is freshly prepared and never soggy or limp. Additionally, they provide good portions.

Great prices. Food is as good as any other place out there, but nothing really makes it stand out as "excellent". I will say that they tend to "suddenly" not have something on the menu. I've ordered a few times and they say "we don't have that" when it's right on the menu. I think they just don't like making... More
