People who give it 5 stars have never eaten Chinese elsewhere. Seems expensive given the average quality. On par with the food court at the mall. Always ready quickly, however.

Good local Chinese restaurant that is very fast with the food prep and is always tasty. Can dine in or take out.

I've lived in the northern Lockport / Newfane area for over 8 years and somehow never eaten here. In fact, I had no idea this place existed despite it being located 5 minutes from my home. I must have driven by it countless times on my way to Olcott. Anyways, I'm so happy to have discovered Food King as it may be the best Chinese take-out in the Northtowns.

I ordered the Orange Chicken lunch combo and a small wonton soup. The Orange Chicken was fantastic. Maybe some of the best I've ever had. Delicious fresh chicken pieces lightly fried with just the right amount of spice accompanied with fresh orange slices. The fried rice was perfect with nice pieces of pork, onion, and celery. The wonton soup was equally delicious with a generous portion of wontons and pork.

The place itself is very basic - A counter with limited seating. It is very clean.
Ordering process is what you would expect - quick, language barrier, 10 minutes and the food is ready.

Negatives? Cash only, but I give Food King some credit for making this clear when ordering rather than a surprise upon pickup.

Are there better Chinese options out there? Of course. In the Northtowns, specifically Eastern Niagara County? No. The food here is good Americanized Chinese reasonably priced. Give them a try.

The outside of Food King is non-descript. Don't let that fool you! While Newfane has its share of greasy spoons, Food King has been a staple in this area for a good number of years.
Orders are completed quickly, even for large ones. The combination plates (pepper steak is really good) are priced well. If your order totals over $30, you get a free order of sweet biscuits. They are worth spending that much. Tasty and warm, they go perfect after a meal of sesame chicken!

When in a small village u have only a few choices when it comes to take out and this happens to be the only Chinese place in town, cash only, hard to understand when placing an order the price is always different on all items this is one of the places I'd rather not take my family to and drive the 15 miles to a better more comfortable cleaner and relaxed Chinese restaurant where u know the cost and can order without asking can u repeat that please
