    The lunch buffet is always good. But..... I've noticed they are recycling the food that hasn't been eaten at lunch. I ordered around 4:30 pm on a Friday. the combination plate to-go. it was to shared with me and my 4 year old son. We ordered 'sweet and sour chicken'. Some of the pieces we're visibly obvious that they've been double cooked🤦 those pieces were terrible, they were tough and inedible, me and my son couldn't chew through the hard jerky🤦 it was supposed to be soft melt in your mouth meat. I used to order sweet and sour chicken from here all the time because it was the best around. But after the stint they pulled, I won't be wasting my money on double-cooked chicken. they are cutting corners attempting to save money at this restaurant trying to serve reheated food. It's very unfair to the loyal customers that come here. This is the exact reason why I stopped eating at other restaurants. If you're going to serve reheated food I'm not going to come here either. Buyer beware of ordering anything after lunch buffet closes!!! I suggest you always get your food from here around noon so you know it's fresh.

    There is no dine in. So the lunch buffet that they display on the window of all you can eat is a lie. There scared of Joe's COVID lies

    Kings Wok Pewaukee in my opinion has the best fresh, hot Chinese food in town. The lunch buffet is small, but has the perfect amount of variety of food. My personal favorite is the bourbon chicken! The staff are very accommodating, and friendly.

    Out for a tasty lunch on Saturday afternoon. Getting take out-ordered online- boneless spare ribs. Item came with rice-only enough for one person. Ribs were good and sweet-nice change from barbecue. Ribs appeared to be pork—should’ve asked, but didn’t. Good meal, but needed veggies.

    I've been Coming here for almost 10 years and rarely/never do I ever go away disappointed. Love what friends and I call "chicken on a stick" Mondays and the crab Rangoon on other days... great price and always smiling faces.

    Big fan. Ordered the Szechuan Combination Platter. There was a lot of beef, the pork fried rice was good and the spring roll was delicious. Order was ready within 10 minutes.

    Ordered chicken with Chinese vegetables and sesame chicken. Both were very good. Chicken was tender and juicy. I asked for spicy and they actually added some spice, thank you. Young man taking the order was very helpful and courteous. On a side note Kings Wok, Time to update that big old picture on the wall, is faded and the fluorescent lights are shining through so it looks like lines across there. It looked really beautiful and awesome one time... Many years ago.

    One of our favorite restaurants in Pewaukee. Just had their Hot n sour soup. So delicious. I love having it when I feel a little under the weather or feel like having Chinese. Also love the Hunan Chicken. One of the best. We all like King’s Wok in our home.

    I've been coming here for lunch for years, and it's still my go-to buffet.

    This place has pretty good food, and it always comes out really fast. Every time I went I got large portions for under $15.

    I met my mom and daughter there for lunch. I picked several things from the buffet and all tasted very good. The Egg foo young was the best I've had.

    Buffet itself, due to the very limited items is a solid 2. What little of it there is ,was fresh and hot though and taste average for my personal taste. But they are busy,looks like a lot of ppl really like the food .

  • 2/5 Kim G. 1 year ago on Google
    I'm severely allergic to shellfish shrimp and everytime I've eaten there I have a severe reaction this leads me to believe they use the same wok or tools or their hands when handling foods. I can no longer eat here because of this. This is one of the only Chinese restaurants that I have a problem at.

    They have the best pork fried rice.

    One of my go to spots for Chinese food. Amazing local place.

  • 2/5 Diane S. 2 years ago on Google
    Had high hopes but alas I was disappointed. Ordered simply fried wontons appetizer (#7 menu). If you are looking for the taste of just fried wonton wrappers it would be perfect for you. The wontons had barely any meat in them which was quite dissapointing and what was in there was so tough to chew. They were fried fresh, service was quick and she was courteous but for food it wasn't even close to minimal expectation. For those reading and seeking a dine in establishment, they currently have the dine in blocked off and are only doing carry out.

    The chicken cashew was very good while the chicken fried rice was not (undercooked carrot and the peas were hard).

  • 2/5 2Old4thizschit 2 years ago on Google
    Ordered beef with mushroom - THE most rubbery, tasteless, chewy beef I believe I've ever tried to eat. Kept trying to find one tender piece - not to be found. Egg roll is mini sized - didn't find out till I got home. Very disappointed.

    The food was hot for a long time after I brought it home. My wish for additional veggies was granted. Love this place. Thank you!!!

  • 3/5 Willie The tall k. 2 years ago on Google
    The food at the buffet is always fine. But I just can't get over the consistent dinginess of the place. It was always a little sweaty and rough around the edges, but after being closed for 2 years with covid you'd think they would have cleaned up more. The bathroom looks like they literally just painted over dirt. The sink area reminds me of something you'd find in an old wet basement.

    Small servings. A lot of broccoli and white rice..and not much else. Terrible value for money. Tried both pre- and past-pandemic with same result. Would Not Recommend. We will not be back. Much better places nearby.
