Yen King is absolutely my favorite restaurant ever! I have been going here for as long as I can remember, and it never ceases to amaze and delight me. The Lu family knows their way around the kitchen. My favorite dish is their Szechwan prawns, and their sesame beef is essentially crispy gooey candied meat....and it will change your life... More

After a long business meeting several of us (12, I think) decided to try the restaurant across from our hotel. We love Chinese Food and ordered the Family Style Dinner. We sat at the back table with the lazy susan in the middle. Everything was superior starting with the soup. This is an upper scale retaurant so expect to pay... More

This was really good food. We were greeted by a friendly young lady. Portions were large and there was plenty to take home.

We have visited here many times, even at a prior location. Our now grown children always beg to go here when they are home. The prices have risen quite a bit over the years, but it is still an affordable dinner for us! The portions are large and it's easy to overorder. But you will have the best Chinese food... More

We had lunch at Yen King and it was good. Lunch specials are delicious; good prices and generous serving which leaves you feeling that you "got" your money's worth. Average service; but very tasty food! Definitely, one of the better Chinese restaurants in Solano County.

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.

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.
