The place has a cafeteria feel to it. However the daily buffet is pretty good with lots of choices.If you miss the buffet, don't worry, the menu is awesome. Order two things per person and you will be stuffed and taking home a container. Ma Po tofu is awesome, dumplings and wontons... great. Crab rangoon is a favourite of many.... More

I generally only go here for the buffet, and I like the fact that it is ALWAYS predictable in terms of what is on the steam table. The down side is that it rarely changes. Each dish is generally good, the staff keep the buffet in good shape, and food is generally hot, fresh, and consistent. Selection is in the... More

We came to Calais from Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, with the main goal of coming to King China, as my wife had been there many times and was raving about how good it was. I can now confirm its true. Not only that, but the value can't be beat. 8.95 for a lunch buffet! For 4 of us, it was... More

Chinese is not at all on the top of my list, but my husband and I ended up here with a group of friends. All seven of us were quickly seated and offered drinks which were promptly delivered. The atmosphere was somewhat like a school cafeteria, but I wasn't surprised as this seems to be the norm for Chinese restaurants... More

Grabbed takeout from here last week. Service is very efficient, not always super friendly though. Food is always consistent and good. We enjoy the teriyaki chicken and crab rangoons.

Definitely a take-out place. The booths were torn and just no atmosphere inside at all. The server was just so-so too. We certainly recommend the food though. Large portions and quite good. The Hunan Pork was actually excellent! Highly recommend that dish. The General Tso's Chicken was quite good, and again, just a huge serving (see photo). Seems like a... More

First off, when my boyfriend and I arrived here we were seated at one of the shabbiest booths I've ever seen. We were greeted quickly enough, but the greeter didn't take our drink orders until after we ordered our meals. We went for the dinner combos for the great value, an appetizer and entree served with chicken fried rice for... More

I really enjoy the food here, and the prices are great. The buffet is awesome, particularly the honey chicken. But, if you are looking for even tastier food, go down the road to Chen Family Garden. I mainly go there now, because I prefer the meals there, and they are a tad cheaper.
