This place serves old style Cantonese cuisine that many of us grew up eating during the '50's, '60's and '70's in San Francisco's Chinatown.... more subtle and delicate than many other Chinese schools of cooking (Hunan, Szechuan, Mongolian....). Food is served family style and prices...More

This would qualify as a hole in the wall place. A few tables and virtually no decor. However, the foods is great and the prices reasonable. Tomato beef chow mein, sweet and sour fish were excellent.

My favorite local Chinese for lunch. Not fancy. Our favorites are always great: Shrimp & Veggies Hong Kong Noodles, Long Bean Beef, Black Bean Sauce Beef Chow Fun & Sing Chow Fried Mai Fun.

This restaurant is the best. Consistently fresh, quality food always delivered with a smile at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for? We are here once every week.

King Wah Chinese Restaurant is mediocre. We had the beef short ribs. The quantity of food was large, the flavor of the sauce was good, but the quality of the beef was poor and practically inedible. Decor is quite plain and not attractive.

This is the only Chinese restaurant that serves my dad's favorite dish - Bittermelon with Beef. And my parents often come here just to eat this one dish. Bittermelon is not for everyone. So do try the crispy noodles with beef and scallops with abalone...More

Five of us (3 generations) went to King Wah on a Saturday night. Modest surroundings, modestly attended mostly by locals who seemed to know and enjoy the restaurant. We selected the soup and then shared 3-4 menu choices. The food was good, and we enjoyed...More
