The food was excellent. We ordered hot and sour soup and were surprised that it was made with a healthy dose of vinegar--the sour. Also the soup broth was not gelatinous, a surprise for sure. Vegetables and Duck dishes were also excellent. A large percentage of the clientele was Chinese, conversing in Chinese, always a comforting experience, and indicative of... More

Found this jem by accident.... This was our first dim sum restaurant. We felt like we were in another country. The food was amazing! I have a bunch of food allergies, the staff was so helpful helping me order.

Second disappointing meal in recent weeks after ordering Kung Pao Delight, a dish of shrimp, beef & chicken with celery, carrots & peanuts, served with a plum sauce that was both oily & watery. Waiter did not comment or deal with this when we explained food was too oily. Usually have no problem using chop sticks, but food so oily... More

Although I love the food, I find the atmosphere to be lacking. The smell of seafood is very strong and not one I enjoy.

This was one of the few times that TripAdvisor reviews have let me down. If this is one of the best Chinese places in the area, then I feel really sorry for the residents. The only good thing about the food was the egg rolls. The fried rice was completely tasteless as was the Mu Shu. The sweet and sour... More

This restaurant is a staple for our family. We have only ever ordered take out, but each time the order has been accurate, timely, and of course delicious. I highly recommend Golden King.

We eat here often & food is usually fine. Only issue we have ever had is slightly uncooked egg & vegetable rolls, but that is rare. Staff are very friendly. Most of customers are local Chinese patrons & this speaks to usual OK quality. We had combination chicken, beef, pork fried rice last trip. I order Lemon Chicken recently &... More

My son has been raving about the Golden King for months so my wife and I decided to give it a try tonight. We arrived at 5 p.m. and the place was empty, but it slowly filled up during the hour that we were there. The vast majority of the customers were Chinese who spoke the language. we started off...

We go to Golden King frequently. It is the kind of dim sum restaurant I like, with frequent tea carts offering a wide variety of dumplings, noodle dishes, rice dishes, desserts etc. We always start with Chrysanthemum Tea for the table and then just pick what appeals to us as it rolls by. One of my favorites is the salt... More
