We've visited Palm Springs for 8 years, but have never managed to eat in a Chinese restaurant there - there are very few, but as China King was within walking distance, we decided to try it. The ambiance is unexciting to say the least, but...More

I ate here for dinner. I ordered the hot and sour soup which tasted watered-down and bland. They don't have any "extras" such as complimentary crunch noodles or hot sauce on the table. They did have soy sauce on the table, but the bottle was...More

While I would love to see the bright florescent lighting dimmed for dinner time, the food here is GREAT! And the service is quite commendable as well. Must have the Hot and Sour soup!

No frills joint serving pretty decent Chinese food. Prompt service with a smile and value for money. Seems quite popular with the locals.

Dependable good Chinese at a reasonable price. Great location for downtown Palm Springs. Service is good. Ambience is what might be expected for a reasonable price.

We were driving through Palm Springs looking for food and found a car dealership (my husband got distracted). We stopped, I was starving, so I TripAdvisor-ed it. Found this little Chinese food place across the stress and said- let's give it a try! We had...More

My wife and I were window shopping across the street and both were hungry for Chinese food and decided to try it. We were totally surprised! Clean restaurant, fast service and above all, this was hands down the best Chinese food we have ever had!...More

We ordered take out. It did not seem to be a buffet restaurant.
