Second generation owners. From early 1980's. Love their beef with green onions, family style tofu, honey walnut prawns.

We love King Wha. We have been going here for 20+ years and always love the food. It is family owned and operated and they are a very nice family. The almond fried chicken is my favorite along with the moo shu pork and sweet and sour soup. Dang now im hungry.

Having had many pleasant experiences a decade ago, and then a diminished one a few years back, I decided to see if indeed my last (and other disappointed reviewers') experience was an aberration. Sad to say, not so! Worse, it appears that the ownership cares even less today about salvaging their deterioration than a few years ago about. There are... More

We love Chinese food and rarely eat because it's hard to find good quality. This was our first time to King Wha and went because of the reviews. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered chicken chow mien and sesame chicken....both were bland and the chicken was fatty. Best part we spent less than $20

This place has been here since at least the early 80s. This family run place is on their second generation and probably on to the third soon. This is Chinese food with a Korean option. The food tends to be heavy on the garlic. The service is fine and the ambiance works. The menu is varied but a little light... More

I have been eating here for over 20 years and never had a bad experience. Try the Mongolian beef and the hot pepper chicken! The owners are very friendly and the service is excellent. I always recommend this spot to all of my friends and co-workers and they give me the same review as I am giving here.

We've been going to this mainstay restaurant in Burien for over 35 years. It is still under the same family ownership. The food is always good, though some of the items are very good. The servings are always generous, there is no charge for tea, and if you want a great lunch, you won't believe what you get for $6.85.... More

It's been several years since we had dinner here, but it used to be our favorite Chinese restaurant, bar none. We'd happily drive the 18 miles there, because the food was so much better than any of the Chinese restaurants nearby. Last night we met up with friends for dinner, and we all agreed on King Wha. We ordered three... More

This Chinese restaurant is a step above fast food places, but nothing special. It is decent enough and was enjoyed greatly by my 8 year old. If you are a huge fan of Chinese, I would recommend driving downtown Seattle, but if you need to stay local, this is tolerable.
