Standard Chinese fair. Kind of a dark and dingy place and not very tidy. I like the food ok. The Soups and Egg Rolls are good. I like the general Tso's Chicken.

Dragon King is hands down the best chinese food I have ever eaten. I have never gotten a bad meal. The buffet is on point. You will not be disappointed.

We had a take away. I can't comment on the restaurant, except that it was deserted. The takeaway however was very tasty and almost embarrassingly inexpensive. Good portions too!

The food is delicious. I did take out and loved the spring rolls we got. I'd recommend if you're in the mood for Chinese.

We eat at this restraint at least 3-4 times a month. Its a family run business. The cost is reasonable and the food tastes great. Always friendly and helpful.

No atmosphere. Only do the take out. Eating in, well no, just no. There weren't really any chinese options in the area. It was ok. We ordered pretty safe options and they were typical, ordinary. I didn't like the egg drop soup or the egg roll but my hunan shrimp was good. Personal taste.

Not a ton of Chinese options floating around Beaufort so this is your average everything menu. The buffet is pretty small but also average. I've never had my meal mixed up or been over charged so I count that as a basically good experience.

This place is in a strip mall on the outskirts of Beaufort, but the food is absolutely excellent. It has a buffet for lunch that is reasonably priced. Don't let the look of the outside keep you from enjoying this jewel.

The food is pretty decent Chinese take out. I wish I could find a place this good in the Charleston, SC area. This is a small family run place. I've watched the son grow up from early grade school age. He usually can be found running the cash register. A few years ago they started a buffet. It hasn't proved... More
