This was a restaurant chosen on the spur of the moment, as it appeared there wasn't much else available within walking distance of where we were in Truro. The food and service were both very good, and the price was right, too.

This place was recommended by a B & B in another city. It has a really nice menu and the food is delivered to the table very quickly. A great day for Chinese food.

My first visit here was with some friends after a round of golf on a near by course. We all ordered a dish with some rice and eggrolls. The location had lots of free parking and the big building is hard to miss. The dining area was large and opened with plenty of windows. The service was quick and very... More

I haven't been to the King Lam since 2014 as a change in ownership had resulted in one of the worst Chinese food experiences I can remember. I decided to try again after being disappointed at the Chow Family. It's just so difficult to find decent quality and consistently good Chinese food in Truro. The meal I had was actually... More

We have very high standard for Chinese food and didn't expect to have above average food in Truro. We have been in Vova Scotia for a week and have eaten mostly seafood western style. We missed Chinese food and decided to get some take away for the one night we are in Truro. What a surprise, both the seafood fried... More

This restaurant has never been one of my favorites. I had been there once when I was an AC student many years ao, and thought I'd give it another try. The food was bland, the decor ugly and the staff not friendly at all.

We had not been to the King Lam in many years, even though we drive by it almost every day. But we had heard they had either new owners or a new chef so we have been meaning to give it a try. In the past, we were disappointed with the taste of the food and other "rumours" that made... More

I ate here three times in the past month all with my family. Our usual go to Chinese restaurant has been the China rose but the food and service was so poor last few times we went we decided to go somewhere else. The king lam was not busy anytime we were there and it was perfect for our large... More

This restaurant has been in Truro for many years. It has not changed or improved for a long time. The food was acceptable but not terrific. I had rice and the almond chicken Guy Din. The vegetables were a bit overcooked and the dish was bland. The rice was fine. The egg roll filling was too mushy for my taste... More
