King Town Chinese Restaurant

 

This is a local Chinese restaurant that we go to frequently. If you are looking for fabulous, Canadian-style Chinese food, this is the place.

They are located at 225 Cobequid Road in Lower Sackville (Nova Scotia).

Pros:

  • Extremely price friendly. Two people can easily stuff their faces here for $20-$30.
  • No waiting for a table. Although the place is starting to become popular, we’ve never had to wait to be seated.
  • Huge portions! I always have to bring half my meal home. Can never finish it!
  • Service is relatively quick between order time and when it is delivered to your table.
  • Pop is served in cans. This is a pro because a LOT of restaurants do not clean the lines in their beverage/pop machines. Mold and bacteria grow in there and then they dispense the beverage through these disgusting lines into your glass. I am always happy to see pop served by the can to avoid this problem.
  • Very clean. Tables are always spotless, as is the floor and bathroom.

Cons:

  • It is always slightly cold in there. I don’t know why. There is a baseboard electric heater and the heat is coming out of it but the place never seems to warm up. But the delicious food over-rides this point.
  • The tea and coffee is terrible. Both are very weak tasting and barely palatable. However, this is not a Starbucks we are talking about so who cares? I’d be surprised if anyone had room for coffee after their meal, anyway.
