George and his family have been serving Williams Lake for many decades. They have a loyal following with consistently good food.

Came here as a Christmas dinner. Ordered dinner for 4 for $50. Chow mien, fried shrimp, fried rice, chop suey, sweet and sour pork. it was delicious. Size wise was large enough to fill everybody's stomach full. It was pretty busy. But serving was quick.

Ken's is a clean and happy little restaurant. Most of the customers were greeted by name by George the owner. I had a meal for one and found it very average. The deep fried prawns were four sad little shrimp heavily coated in batter. The chicken chow mein had chicken cut into strips from some kind of processed chicken loaf.... More

We stopped in on recommendations of friends and customers. George the owner is and was so very attentive and a gracious host. His wife was not here tonight. Now I have to say, we didn't like 2 of the 5 dishes we ordered, not saying there were bad, just different. We ordered deep fried won tons, Almond Chicken, Chicken Chow... More

When working, my place to go for lunch -- eat in or take out. Now retired and busier than when working, it is my go to place for take home dinner. Great choice for both Chinese or Western food and central to downtown shopping. Very friendly atmosphere and casual dress. George and Janette are excellent hosts!

Ordered Chinese food and had it delivered to my hotel room. I only ordered from here based on the good reviews. I didn't care much for the food and don't understand why the ratings are good. One of the dishes ordered was sweet and sour pork. The dish didn't have much sauce and wasn't sweet or sour.

Décor is nothing special, but the food is good. Popular place for the locals to enjoy Chinese food! The owner operators are friendly people, and make you feel welcome.

Chinese food is omnipresent and Ken's is a relatively normal Chinese Food restaurant...except the eggrolls. As important to the food here is the multi cultural experience that the people in the room create. Colorful characters from all over the region are the mainstay of the customer base. Almost every element of society is present at any given time. A true... More
