Food is good for lunch. They have lunch specials. Good value. Also have had dinner there and also take out. Just had the family dinner for 3. This included egg roll, really tasty wonton soup, almond chicken, sweet & sour pork and mongolian beef. Each entree was well prepared. Everyone enjoyed it.

Service quick and friendly. Sizzling Rice soup is great. New building makes a nice atmosphere. Lots of lunch specials.

This used to be the best Chinese place in Vacaville but since the move the service and food has declined. The new building is beautiful but that’s the only thing that increased. I went there recently and found the food dry and without flavor. When the waitress came to the table I told her that the food wasn’t very good. She picked up the food and said sorry. She didn’t ask if we wanted something else or comp us for the food that was untouched. Unless something changes go somewhere else.

I have been going to Yen King for years. I used to live in the same neighborhood. The owners have now built a brand new building that is state of the art for restaurants. I believe they may have built it a couple of years ago.

Regardless of when they built it, the food is just fantastic. EVERY dish is prepared individually and all the food is fresh. We ordered pot stickers and it seemed to take a while, but our server reminded us that those pot stickers were made from SCRATCH for US. now THAT is fantastic.

This place is a real family run place. Husband does the cooking. Mother runs the whole operation and oversees the cash register. The young daughter, now in her mid twenties does much of the serving and now trains all the new staff.

The food is absolutely fantastic. It is at the top of "hamburger hill" in Vacaville, right off the Freeway. Hamburger hill is so name for the fast food restaurants in the area. But once you are inside, all that goes away. Parking is plentiful. Access is easy. Staff is friendly. The facilities are spotless.

And the food is the freshest Chinese you will ever eat. My wholehearted recommendation.
