Be a King at Yen King

The Asian eatery had excellent food, great service, and good atmosphere. It is conveniently located on Monte Vista, and is a favorite of the local populous.

A very attractive,clean looking restaurant with comfortable seating and a nice atmosphere. The problem is the food is very mediocre. Last night we had sizzling rice soup and the broth was chicken based but had too much water to be tasty. TheCHow mein combination was mostly just noodles and it looked like they were trying to have a very low... More

The food served was just a little better than average. Service was okay. We are just a little picky with Chinese food and this just was not as good as we are use to.

My wife and I went to Yen King for dinner. The service was excellent and our waiter was attentive. We ordered the pot stickers for an appetizer. They were so good! For our meal we ordered the cashew chicken and the orange chicken. All the food was delicious but the orange chicken was a bit too sweet, so beware. All... More

This place has great food. The atmosphere is decidedly Chinese, and the wait staff is very Chinese--they speak Chinese. The food is varied and all of it that we've had is great. This is a place where you'd want to take a date to impress her/him. We consider this one of the best restaurants in Vacaville. If you haven't been... More

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!

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.
