I chose King Shen based on the recommendations in Tripadvisor, and I was not dissapointed. The dish I ordered was delicious, each component preserved its own taste in spite of the sauce that shaped it, revealing the freshness of vegetables and seafood.

The service is always top notch. The soup are great. We always order several dishes and share. The dishes are very ample for sharing. If you are looking for great Chinese food this the place to go.

I have loved this restaurant for 30+ years. The owners and the wait staff is exceptionally kind. I love the food and they are very tolerant of food sensitivities, allergies, and dislikes.

It's been years since I've been to King Yen, but they didn't disappoint then and they don't now. The best Chinese food (in my opinion other than Yang Chow). The food is always delicious and fresh and plentiful. This is a great place for groups...More

Just another average "Chinese" restaurant that doesn't serve anything Chinese people eat. Wonderful staff and excellent service, but the food is just your average quick, uninteresting stuff.
