Their food is pretty good. Setting isn't that great. Staff are not really very friendly. Last time i got take out, the guy didn't even say thank you. He seemed miffed when I asked for an extra hot mustard.

I'm surprised to see the barrage of negative reviews. I'm a chinese food snob and no -- it's not fantastic. But Hong Kong King is our go-to for cheap and decent food, and it has been for ten years. Don't go out of your way to go here, but don't go out of your way to avoid it either! Tip:... More

I feel compelled to warn other potential customers that this restaurant is terrible! The woman behind the counter was mean to the cook, yelling at her in front of me when she got my order wrong. I am a vegetarian and ordered a vegetable dish, but when it came, it had chicken in it. However, rather than cooking the meal... More

To start, the food was DISCUSTING! The sweet and sour chicken made my brother throw up which was definitely not worth the bad service... This food is not worth the money you spend per meal either. The woman behind the counter was rude, disrespectful, and impatient. She would not answer any questions we had about what a certain food was... More

This was THE worst experience of our entire trip. The food was not terrific by any stretch but we have never experienced more ignorant, rude and disrespectful service. The young woman behind the counter and her treatment of customers is enough to run this establishment out of business. The food, which made my son throw up, was definitely not worth... More

Just ordered from Hong Kong King at 28 Norman St Salem. Delivery just arrived. Opened up the house rice and smelled badly of rancid fish(shrimp) opened up the pork strips they are dry and dark meat with loads of fat, low mein is barely edible and the beef chow yoke is barely even marginal at best in tenderness and taste(tough...

The old adage " You get what you pay for." applies to the Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant. Two dinner meals plus one bowl of soup came to under $25.00. We got carry out & I knew by looking at the food, I would not enjoy it! The Won Ton soup was a strange bright yellow color (which is usually clear... More

Seriously never had better Chinese food!! Amazing!!! The place itself needs some work and the woman was on the phone the whole time yelling on a personal call.. But the food was worth it.. Should have gotten it to go.
