Dinner menu prices are rediculous for what you get. We ordered the dinner combination $17.95 each which only came with almond chicken and sweet and sour pork as entrees. If you want alternatives, the upgrade cost is $5. The almond chicken was a lot of celery and bamboo shoots, but we couldn't find the chicken!! We won't be coming back!!

I was exploring Vacaville and stumbled upon this restaurant; building looked new and restaurant was clean. However the food was lacking; it was just above average and my gauge of a good Chinese restaurant is the amount of Chinese/Asian customers dining there. Hope this comes across as racist/profiling but I am Asian, live in the bay area where there are... More

This restaurant is going done in quality. Dishes used to be generous with meats, but over the past few years there is less and less. I have decided, I'll have to learn to make Mu Shu myself.

Yen King is absolutely my favorite restaurant ever! I have been going here for as long as I can remember, and it never ceases to amaze and delight me. The Lu family knows their way around the kitchen. My favorite dish is their Szechwan prawns, and their sesame beef is essentially crispy gooey candied meat....and it will change your life... More

After a long business meeting several of us (12, I think) decided to try the restaurant across from our hotel. We love Chinese Food and ordered the Family Style Dinner. We sat at the back table with the lazy susan in the middle. Everything was superior starting with the soup. This is an upper scale retaurant so expect to pay... More

We have visited here many times, even at a prior location. Our now grown children always beg to go here when they are home. The prices have risen quite a bit over the years, but it is still an affordable dinner for us! The portions are large and it's easy to overorder. But you will have the best Chinese food... More

We had lunch at Yen King and it was good. Lunch specials are delicious; good prices and generous serving which leaves you feeling that you "got" your money's worth. Average service; but very tasty food! Definitely, one of the better Chinese restaurants in Solano County.
