We had intended to eat at another location but it was closed and we were hungry so we stopped at King's Chinese restaurant in West Sacramento. It was rather dowdy looking both outside and inside but we found a menu with a number of interesting offerings. The food was good but my husband's dish was... read more

Superb food. Reminds me of San Francisco. I really enjoy the traditional foods. Saturday and Sunday are the best days to go.

It is always asked "is this one of the best meals you've had in a restaurant?" Well no (I've had $110 dollar meals that were better) BUT Bang for the buck it certainly is. Been a regular for 16 years. There have been gaps of a year or two but the waitress (same wonderful person) remembers me and what I... More

Should have known by the empty parking lot at noon that we should move on; but Sacramento Magazine had written about it in fairly positive terms. Further, we were on a quest for great reasonably priced Dim Sum in Sacramento, so we gave it a shot. Bad idea. Someone has obviously given up caring a long time ago for the... More

I have been going to Kings for dim sum for about 10 years. If you go during the week you have to order from a menu, but on the weekend about 11 a.m., sometimes sooner, the carts roll out. Nothing is going to knock your socks off, but the overall quality is better than good and the prices are modest.... More

We used to live in the Bay Area and lamented moving to the Sacramento area, as we would miss our favorite weekend meal: dim sum. 20 years ago we discovered King's when Jennifer helped us host 40 people for a dim sum birthday party. We've been regulars ever since. Best times to go: Sunday between 11:00 - 1:00, as the... More

My husband introduced me to King's dim sum when we started dating in 1999. We've been coming here for dim sum ever since, at least 5-6 times a year. He's been coming here with his parents since he was 10 years old. I can only remember a couple of times when their dim sum didn't taste fresh. Otherwise, this place... More

I have frequented this establishment for over 20 years. These folks truly know how to cook and you won't find a finer cuisine anywhere. Having grown up in SF/Oakland's Chinatowns, this cuisine is like "home". The ambiance is sincerely lacking, but who cares... I'm not eating the chairs! And, for those of you desiring dim sum all week... they'll send... More
