So, I was a bit hesitant to give KW a try based on a fair amount of negative reviews, but there were still a good number of positives listed as well. So.... I'm glad we stopped in! While the place could use a good renovation & bump in ambiance ( I prefer hearing Asian music at Asian restaurants instead of... More

My brother and I had dinner at King Wha. It is a large restaurant with lots of tables and booths. Great for large or small groups. Looks like a family operation. Nicely decorated, very clean. Prices are reasonable. We had a combination dinner. The food was very good and plentiful. We could only eat abou half what they served, so... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time ever today because I saw Sizzling Rice Soup on the menu. We ordered to go and the soup was really good. As was the other food. I really like that they use big pieces of shrimp that you can actually taste! And the (sizzling) rice was loose and crispy. The other food was... More

Second generation owners. From early 1980's. Love their beef with green onions, family style tofu, honey walnut prawns.

We love King Wha. We have been going here for 20+ years and always love the food. It is family owned and operated and they are a very nice family. The almond fried chicken is my favorite along with the moo shu pork and sweet and sour soup. Dang now im hungry.

Having had many pleasant experiences a decade ago, and then a diminished one a few years back, I decided to see if indeed my last (and other disappointed reviewers') experience was an aberration. Sad to say, not so! Worse, it appears that the ownership cares even less today about salvaging their deterioration than a few years ago about. There are... More

We love Chinese food and rarely eat because it's hard to find good quality. This was our first time to King Wha and went because of the reviews. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered chicken chow mien and sesame chicken....both were bland and the chicken was fatty. Best part we spent less than $20

This place has been here since at least the early 80s. This family run place is on their second generation and probably on to the third soon. This is Chinese food with a Korean option. The food tends to be heavy on the garlic. The service is fine and the ambiance works. The menu is varied but a little light... More

I have been eating here for over 20 years and never had a bad experience. Try the Mongolian beef and the hot pepper chicken! The owners are very friendly and the service is excellent. I always recommend this spot to all of my friends and co-workers and they give me the same review as I am giving here.
