This is a take out place with two tables for eat in. The Chinese food is very good. They have very good soup. The seaweed w/wo bean curd soup, I enjoy very much. I also like the spare ribs. I pretty much stick to the soup and the simple dishes. Whatever I have ordered there has been freshly made and I have enjoyed. They do not have duck dishes.

I live nearby and have been ordering food from this very friendly-family run Chinese cuisine for 15 years. It's great in tastes and service. Go and try. If you are not satisfied, tell them your issue, and they will cook you anew.

Popped in for a small Gen Tso's Chicken and it was so much food I couldn't finish it. AND it was really yummy.

I've been living in the area for 2 years now and never tried this place. Damn :) I just had the best Mongolian Beef that I had in NYC so far. Seriously. I don't even feel like trying other stuff, but order that on a regular basis. Not sure, why this place also has poor reviews... maybe the dish? Everything else is like any other Chinese take-out place.

I thoroughly enjoy this restaurant many a nights when I look forward to a bowl and a delicious special from Tasty King. The atmosphere is friendly and I totally know that hurt look on the guys face when he thinks you forgot to tip him. Delicious food i suggests egg drop soup with a Ginger ale with a sesame chicken or Szechwan beef with pork fried rice and an egg roll

...to make chinese food this bad. I was looking for quick, cheap take-out last night, and decided to try Tasty King after read the reviews here. I don't know what the reviewers are thinking, but the only good thing about this place is the sheer weight of food they give you. No doubt, you get a lot of mass for your money. But if that mass tastes like this stuff tastes, what's the point? The cold sesame noodles were, well, odd. The first bites were not bad, but then I started noticing a weird grittiness. I don't know what it is, but every noodle was covered in some sand-like substance. It wasn't the sesame seeds -- there were only a few of those. This was tiny black specks all over everything. After a few bites I couldn't take it any more. The hunan chicken was even worse. It takes some incredible skill to make a sauce that red taste like absolutely nothing at all. I really felt like I was eating chicken, carrots and other veggie slices soaked in water. Good for empty calories, but not much else. On the plus side, the people were friendly and extremely fast. So there's that I guess. Overall, don't order from here, there are so many other good options nearby, even if it costs you a buck more per dish, its totally worth it to go somewhere else.
