Fast, good Chinese food. Surprised by how tasty it was, also has a varied menu. Probably the best in Truro area.

Cheap prices. But when the food comes you will understand why. It wasn't very good in my opinion this was the second visit for us. The service is very quick but we will not be going back

I eat lunch at the King Lam often. The lunch specials are good value for the money and the service is usually quick. The food is excellent, but if something isn't the way you think it should be they cheerfully take it back and do it again. Ruth and Alice and both top notch servers. They know what regular customers... More

This is not our favorite place for Chinese Food but friends took us there for a 'treat' and we were very pleased with the food. We didn't expect to like it as we felt if we compared it to our favorite place it would not measure up... we were wrong.... it was very good.

This was a restaurant chosen on the spur of the moment, as it appeared there wasn't much else available within walking distance of where we were in Truro. The food and service were both very good, and the price was right, too.

This place was recommended by a B & B in another city. It has a really nice menu and the food is delivered to the table very quickly. A great day for Chinese food.

My first visit here was with some friends after a round of golf on a near by course. We all ordered a dish with some rice and eggrolls. The location had lots of free parking and the big building is hard to miss. The dining area was large and opened with plenty of windows. The service was quick and very... More

I haven't been to the King Lam since 2014 as a change in ownership had resulted in one of the worst Chinese food experiences I can remember. I decided to try again after being disappointed at the Chow Family. It's just so difficult to find decent quality and consistently good Chinese food in Truro. The meal I had was actually... More

We have very high standard for Chinese food and didn't expect to have above average food in Truro. We have been in Vova Scotia for a week and have eaten mostly seafood western style. We missed Chinese food and decided to get some take away for the one night we are in Truro. What a surprise, both the seafood fried... More
