My favorite restaurant in Denver

I wanted very much to refute joanna's review because Yen King is an excellent restaurant and the staff has always been polite to me. Then I saw that her review was written in 2008, before the first time I visited the restaurant. So I can't say she was wrong about the place back then, but I CAN say that it isn't like that NOW.

The food is GREAT! Their Mandarin soft-shelled crab is like nothing I've seen anywhere else. All the basics are done right as well, from Moo-Goo-Gai-Pan to
...view more Kung Pao Chicken. Very generous portions as well.

The atmosphere is also good. On a weekend night, you can count on Yen King to not be as crowded as other places, and even when it's full the lighting and decor tend to make people quieter.

Their prices are also good: 4 people can eat for $40-50 and if you come for lunch you can even get a decent meal for $5 a head. I always tip them generously.

All in all a gem of a restaurant, I highly recommend it.

BAD FOOD / BAD SERVICE / RUDE HOST

After the previous owner sold the restaurant to someone else the food quality started to change. We ordered a mongolian beef from the restaurant and it was plain nasty with lots of cooking oil, lots of msg and really really salty! This wasn't the issue but when I peeked in the restaurant it was MEXICAN cooking my chinese food!!! Excuse me? Chinese restaurant / Mexican cooking the food DOES NOT work!!!! Oh my god, the service was horrendously horrible!!! I called in for a reservation an...view mored they told me it would be fined with 15 guests and it turned out they don't even have our table ready and the host there barely speaks ENGLISH!!! She was rude and made to be very embarrass in front of my friends for recommending them to this restaurant! I WILL NEVER COME BACK TO THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN!! I agree with other reviewers that this restaurant was good but it was back then! I've been a customer for 18 years with the old owner and the new owner does NOT convince me to come back! HORRIBLE FOOD !! HORRIBLE WAIT-STAFF!!! If you want mexican to cook your chinese food then come here.view less
