Old Fashioned Dim Sum made by a realy old guy!

My parents took me to King's in West Sacramento for Dim Sum on weekends back in the 70's. Carts of steamed dumplings and buns rolling down the aisles. Tables packed with families piled high with dishes and steamer containers. Waitresses counting the dishes to figure out your bill. 40-50 years... read more

Good Chinese food. Dim sum especially delightful. Extensive menu, all cooked to order. The waitress, 'J', is a delight and an asset to the restaurant.

Love the food here and the friendly people. Reminds me of golden dragon in SF. Old fashioned carts roam the isles. .........................

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 lacking scallops which was featured...

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
