We have been going to this place for twenty years, including in a previous location. They have great Chinese food, and are very accommodating. The service is prompt and efficient. The food is fresh and tasty. Try it!

Was deiving down the highway and decided to pull off the road for dinner. Did not have high expectations when we pulled into the lot. Inside the restaurant was clean and rhe food smelled good. Staff were friendly and rhe meal scrumptious. Would definitely go back. We tried the Happy Family and chicken with black bean sauce. Both were excellent,... More

Because of its central location, we decided on Yen King as the place for a birthday celebration for my wife. We had family from Chico, Sacramento, Napa, the East Bay - and Vacaville - in attendance. We asked for, and received a large round table in a separated area at the back of the restaurant. Your mileage may vary, since... More

This is a really good restaurant with fresh American Chinese food. We had a take-out so not sure how the service is in general. Everyone liked the food though. The prize was a bit expensive, but okay for the taste of the food.

We have been searching for a new "go to" Chinese restaurant because the places we used to dine at has seriously tumbled off our "chinese food radar". We have eaten here before over a year ago and decided it was time to try it again. We did have a pleasant experience the last time but it didn't have that "I... More

It's is by far the best Chinese food I've ever had. Everything is fresh tasting and delicious! The only problem I have here is deciding what to order! The atmosphere is relaxed and professional, service is great, foods even better! Great job Yen King!

It has been a busy day, and you have been driving on I-80 for a while in the heat of the central valley... time to stop in the clean, well air-conditioned brand-new Yen King restaurant! Service is great, and food is, well, great. I came with a large group, and we were quickly served the family dinner (about $14/person). Lots... More

Excellent Chinese food. This place is operated by the same family for years. They built this beautiful place about 4 years ago. It is a delight! If it isn't on the menu, ask.

For the second time, we took our daughter's family to Yen King for a Chinese New Year celebration lunch. The place is atypical for a Chinese restaurant: High-ceilinged, illuminated etched-glass area dividers, etc. Just doesn't have the usual well-used Chinese restaurant vibe (not that THAT is a bad thing!) Service was attentive. Food, as usual, was great! We will doubtless... More
