Second disappointing meal in recent weeks after ordering Kung Pao Delight, a dish of shrimp, beef & chicken with celery, carrots & peanuts, served with a plum sauce that was both oily & watery. Waiter did not comment or deal with this when we explained food was too oily. Usually have no problem using chop sticks, but food so oily... More

Although I love the food, I find the atmosphere to be lacking. The smell of seafood is very strong and not one I enjoy.

This was one of the few times that TripAdvisor reviews have let me down. If this is one of the best Chinese places in the area, then I feel really sorry for the residents. The only good thing about the food was the egg rolls. The fried rice was completely tasteless as was the Mu Shu. The sweet and sour... More

This restaurant is a staple for our family. We have only ever ordered take out, but each time the order has been accurate, timely, and of course delicious. I highly recommend Golden King.

We eat here often & food is usually fine. Only issue we have ever had is slightly uncooked egg & vegetable rolls, but that is rare. Staff are very friendly. Most of customers are local Chinese patrons & this speaks to usual OK quality. We had combination chicken, beef, pork fried rice last trip. I order Lemon Chicken recently &... More

My son has been raving about the Golden King for months so my wife and I decided to give it a try tonight. We arrived at 5 p.m. and the place was empty, but it slowly filled up during the hour that we were there. The vast majority of the customers were Chinese who spoke the language. we started off...

We go to Golden King frequently. It is the kind of dim sum restaurant I like, with frequent tea carts offering a wide variety of dumplings, noodle dishes, rice dishes, desserts etc. We always start with Chrysanthemum Tea for the table and then just pick what appeals to us as it rolls by. One of my favorites is the salt... More

It is difficult to find a good authentic Chinese Dimsum restaurant in Northern Virginia. And we were lucky to have found this one. It is in a quiet shopping center in Sterling. My family and I were worried that it would be crowded during Easter Sunday at 12 noon. However it was perfect. My sister-in-law had a reservation for 10... More

Went there for dim sum today. They come around with the carts, but you can also order directly. Service is quick, good selection of bbq items, plus congee or noodle soup selections from the menu. Very casual with booths or tables depending on how many people in your party. Only criticism a few of our choices were not warm enough.... More
