Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A traditional Chinese. We had a set meal which was very good. Crispy duck excellent, sesame prawn very good. The lemon chicken however was over sweet for our palate. It’s rather old fashioned and could benefit from a refresh. However it’s good food and friendly...service and it’s good value.More

Been going here for years. Good steady fare, perhaps a little tired in decor. Good starters. Prompt polite service and food served hot

We visit regularly and the staff are very helpful and accommodating and the food is great. Always a popular choice from our children too and is requested for special occasions.

My family and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Kings Restaurant in Odiham. The food was incredibly fresh and exceptionally tasty. We had sizzling king prawns, sizzling fillet of beef, chicken and cashew nuts with chicken satay to start . I can’t fault either the...food or the staff, who were very attentive. However, as a dining experience it was such a shame that the beautiful listed building wasn’t matched by the decor inside, which is in dire need of updating and refreshing. In addition, and quite bizarrely, in place of crisp white linen tablecloths there are brown table protectors on top of the tablecloths, which make it look very plastic and cheap. Although these table protectors look quite new, they will become a trap for food in due course, which is of concern. As the food is outstanding, I would consider dining there again but would bring my own tablecloth. The food isn’t cheap but sadly the interior makes it look that way. In years gone past, it was a fine dining restaurant- with a little investment it could be again. It does currently seem to be very busy on takeawaysMore

Been eating here for over 20 years but things have gone downhill. Pricey and food not that good. Here is a photo of 2 spring rolls purchased this week. Only 1 prawn (in pic, if you can find it) and no meat, however PLENTY of...carrot. Ripped off.More

We went there with our grandchildren and let them choose what to eat. We thought we had probably ordered too much but at the end of the meal there were lots of empty plates and two happy little girls

With all our family staying with us over Xmas we thought we would have a Chinese takeaway on one night and Kings is our first choice. The meal was delivered on time and everyone said it was delicious, including several who said it was one...of the best Chinese meals they have ever had. BrilliantMore

Evening home delivery. Prompt delivery, Been a customer for years and always a good in house experience. Quality of delivered food not as good as previous, although difficult to quantify. Still look forward to visiting the restaurant again.

We had my dad staying with us and my brother came down from Newcastle, so a great opportunity to go out for a family meal Most places were fully booked, it was the first weekend inside dining was allowed again, so that made sense However,...we were fortunate enough to get a table here Immediate disappointment for us, when the staff informed us the menu was catered to the Western palate - but not surprising and almost all regional Chinese restaurants are Unless it’s located in a large urban site like London, Birmingham etc, you’ll rarely find authentic Chinese food (guess that’s the same for any non British cuisine really) However, they were kind enough to produce a non listed dish, that my dad requested and we decided to try the standard traditional western options like crispy shredded beef and sweet and sour pork All were good, especially the non listed dish - we ended up ordering another portion of that one The only criticism I have is that the Szechuan dishes were not spicy at all - again, we just assumed the local Odiham residents probably couldn’t handle the heat and so the restaurant had to dumb it down All in all, we had a great timeMore

Approached this meal unsure what to expect, but fancied Chinese for a change. Really pleasantly surprised, and ordering was really easy online. We had the crispy duck, king prawns with ginger, sweet and sour chicken and prawns (to make sure we got some ourselves with...2 hungry boys!) and the beef in black bean. All very tasty and we are quite fussy. We ordered the mixed starter too, and probably wouldn’t order that again as a bit too greasy and beige for our taste. Took almost 90 minutes to be ready even though we ordered at 6:30, and no way to tell how long it will take to be ready before submitting the order. So would recommend putting your order in early and specifying when you want it rather than waiting and expecting it in 20-30 minutes.More

This was possibly the worst Chinese I have ever had. Took 1 bite of the chicken and had to throw the whole meal away. It was rubbery and disgusting and totally inedible! I fully expected this to be restaurant standard as it isn't cheap but...nope! We have just moved to Odiham but will never be eating here again! Feel robbed and hungry!More

Busy Saturday and an hour and a half forecast wait. Not a problem. Arrived more or less on time. Tasty food and no problems with portions. Well packaged and added bonus of re- usable plastic containers. Prices may be a little high, but matched by...quality. Never had a poor deal from here and have been going for years.More

I have been a loyal customer to this particular Chinese for almost a year I ordered my food at 1800 after calling them at 2114 i was told that they are really sorry and that i cannot have my order after they accepted the order...at 1815. We have waited almost 3 hours for this food and now its too late to order anything else. Thanks for a terrible end to a terrible year. I guess they earned enough money tonight to not care about their loyal customers.More
