Take-Out Rip-Off – I recommend only eating in at this place, and at lunch time if you want a good value. The staff will still ignore you and the food will still be mediocre, but at least you won't have dropped $20.
I've ordered from and eaten at this place many times, but I've finally concluded: DON'T ORDER DELIVERY. When I called to order I was put on hold (and hung up on, with no apology when I called back) - I had to ask my total, and all she confirmed was my phone number and address. Delivery did not come for an hour, until after I called to ask where my food was (again, no apology, just "It be there soon"). Delivery guy was nice, and I tipped him $4 on $19 out of principle, even though he wouldn't leave me the receipt! Said his manager needed them back. What for? The customer gets a receipt. I save my receipts to keep track of spending - what's the big deal? Then I found my dumplings didn't have the usual tasty soy sauce/vinegar dip, but a gross, thick brown sauce.
For the first time ever, I called and asked for the manager (phone answerer insisted he was). I told him receipts were for customers ("No, customer must ask!" "No... YOU should ask ME!") and that I had gotten the wrong sauce. ("You want me to send out another one?" Right. That would take another hour.) He also insisted that they told me delivery would be 30-45 minutes (they hadn't, but it took an hour anyway) and offered no apologies. What a *bleep*- I don't know how this place has lasted so long in uppity Chestnut Hill.
Best Chinese Outside of CenterCity – The food at King's Garden is always excellent. The black bean sauce is fragrant and tasty. Everything is fresh. Style of restaurant is very traditional (looks like a classic Chinese restaurant from the 50s-90s). If the decor was hip this would be THE PLACE. Literally, it is the staid look of the place that holds it back. Food is served quickly, always sizzling and sumptuous. I love this restaurant. I can guarantee that you will too.
Good, fresh, full of flavor – Some of the best chinese food in the city. I've eaten in and ordered out from King's garden at least a dozen times and it never fails to please! The food is fresh and much tastier than most regular chinese food restaurants.
