Normal American Chinese to me

Stopped by Kim's with a few co-workers for lunch. The wonton soup was good and the egg roll was excellent. The Almond Chicken was fair, a lot of breading. Service was fast and friendly.

Restaurant was not clean, food was splattered on all of the glass dividers between booths. The restrooms were disgusting. Dinner roll was dried out. Tea pot was served with crud stuck all over the outside and inside. Egg rolls were all mushy inside, you really couldn't tell what was in them. Sesame chicken was good but too spicy for my... More

I have a rough track record with Asian food as its either REALLY good or REALLY not. This spot is consistently good and actually has other Asians eating there ( good sign!) Love the Almond chicken!

I went there with a friend. This is certainly one of the best Dim sum around. Great food, great tea and fast service. We had more food that we anticipated and we loved it.

we came for a family dinner. The food is quite good. Quite authentic Chinese food - the combination of the green onion, garlic, chili pepper, and sesame oil as spicy sauce is just right, a hometown taste.

Fearing the American version of Chinese, we entered Kim's on a Saturday afternoon and found a good looking Dim Sum menu. Shrimp with Spinach Dumplings, Udon Noodle soup, Stuffed Eggplant, Stuffed Green Pepper, Bean Curd wrap all had individual flavour accents, and great texture too with no detectable MSG. The bill was reasonable and the service was excellent. My wife... More

Just off the main road, easy access although parking can be a little tight there is a strip mall behind where you could park if overflow is needed. Fried rice & egg roll good but sweet & sour chicken was yuck! I wouldn't eat here again, probably find another Chinese restaurant.

Chicken was bland and had more breading than actual meat. The soup had the consistency of sauce. Very bad experience, I will never go again.

We have been coming here for the last 15 years. I am Chinese (my wife not as much ...) and we both love this place. So let's get this out of the way first. Kim's does serve Chinese-American food for those of you less adventurist. And it is good. But you will be doing yourself a dis-favor if do not... More

I've been here many times, especially during Chinese New Year where they have a lion dance. The food is great with plenty of options to choose from.
