Restaurant Review: King Chef

King Chef
6746 Sylvania Avenue
Sylvania, OH 43560-3519
(419) 882-9208

On the other side of the Classic Cafe is King Chef Chinese.  Although King Chef has a dining room of sorts, you'll likely be happier getting your order to go.  King Chef is a non-franchised proprietorship and the owners are on site.  Hours of operation are open to close, and will be posted as soon as I make another trip over there and remember to write the hours down.

The big draw at King Chef is the food.  The ingredients are fresh and the oil is used sparingly.  Clearly the chef knows what he's doing.  The only thing I could wish for at King Chef is brown rice.  Like almost every other oriental restaurant in the Toledo area, King Chef serves only white rice, which is a real shame given the quality of the food.  I'm rating the food at an 8.

King Chef has no ambiance.  While there are a few tables and chairs in case someone should want to eat at the restaurant, the place isn't really set up for that.  There's no table service and the dining room has the look of a cafeteria.  Ergo, I'm rating the ambiance at a zero.  I don't see that as a detriment, by the way.  The place just doesn't offer dining room services. 

The service at King Chef gets a solid 8.  The proprietors used to have limited English, but they will understand you (assuming you speak English) a lot better than you'll understand them.  They're cheerful people and they are glad for your patronage.

In summary:
  • Ambiance: 0
  • Service: 8
  • Food: 8
Overall rating: 8.
