Our meal was deliciously prepared to our high standards. The Mongolian Beef, Prawns in walnut sauce and Beef fried rice were very good. Excellent service topped it off. Highly recommended.

One of our families favorites

I can hardly believe the bad reviews, I've gone here for years and it's always been good. Not fancy, just good fresh Chinese food.

Fresh Ingredients and Excellent Preparation

Honey-glazed walnut prawns are fabulous, and the appetizer ""Steamed Shrimp Dumplings,"" which is always slow to arrive, is well worth the wait. King Yen has been a favorite restaurant for me for many years. The ambiance in the small front room with three large windows is charming and that area is quieter than the other two larger dining rooms. I have been eating there for over 10 years and the food consistently meets my high expectations.

disappointing and a rip off!

This place used to be good...expensive, but worth it. Not any more...I called in a to-go order:fried prawns, garlic chicken, chicken chow mein and combo fried rice. I went and picked it up in the time frame I was told, and it still wasn't ready, but I thought ""thats not a biggie, it is Sat. night, and a CAL game had been earlier that day"" When she rang up my bill, it came to $39.73 (damn, just for that?) anyway, I drove home, and opened the containers, and both the chow mein and garlic chicken containers were barely 3/4 of the way full! They couldn't even fill the containers all the way! The vegetables were soft--like overcooked...not crunchy like they should have been. And on top of that, there was a hair in the garlic chicken! I'm never going there again...very disappointing. The only thing that was good about the meal was the big chunks of chicken in the chow mein...they did use white breast meat and not the rubbery thigh meat. Which I did like, but everything else was a HUGE turnoff.
