Seems like a local hot spot for the residents of Chinatown . Very inexpensive , imo especially compared to other American restaurants in the area! My husband... More

Went on Sunday and mostly natives - very friendly and portions were enough for four even though we were two. Service and quality of food was excellent - priced well. Would surely return. NO FRILLS - JUST GOOD FOOD>

We were given a few minutes by our tour to eat wherever we wished. We saw this place and decided to eat here since there was no customer inside. Low and be hold, it must be said that this is the best Chinese Restaurant ever. The food was very tasteful and they had large servings.

Beautiful Chinese restaurant located in the center of this neighborhood. We arrived late for lunch. We thank the Manager we have accepted in the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and smiling. We have taken many and various Chinese dishes all excellent. Very well served both the quality and quantity. Recommend. Go ahead.

Our dinner here was significantly more satisfying than the previous night's meal next door at Hunan Homes. That said, it was nothing exceptional. The kung pao chicken had way too many mushrooms. The fried rice, however, was tasty and visually appealing as well. You won't get ripped off here, however, you probably have a Chinese restaurant just as good in... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by our concereige as it was was of his favourites. We weren't disappointed. We were the only Caucasians there but that only proved they served great food as the locals went! We ordered the set meal and it was served quickly, all the dishes were so tasty, we left nothing on our... More

We were tempted to eat at Chung King as it appeared fairly full with everyone being Chinese. We were greeted well and seated promptly. Rather than order individual dishes we just opted for the $11-95 set dinner. This proved to be fantastic value, with deep fried prawns, hot and sour soup and with Mongolian beef, stir fried prawns and pork... More

We chose this restaurant because it was reasonably priced and very busy - full of Chinese patrons eating mounds of exotic and tasty looking dishes. We had to wait a while and look determined to get a table but the waiter eventually squeezed us in to a corner. We had Spring Rolls and Deep Fried Prawns for starters both of... More

We had ok food here but were hoping for the same sort of food one is served in China. But it is not. This is American Chinese - a very different thing.It is, however, good American food, but just not something one would find in China. So for us, it was disappointing. If you don't know the difference or you... More

I would call this place good and not average. Nice sit down place in china town. Clean and well lit up. Service is decent. Don't have to overly wait as well. Food was good. Had some lobsters crabs and kungpao chicken. Tasted well and would recommend this to come again.

Neighbourhood Profile

A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
