This would qualify as a hole in the wall place. A few tables and virtually no decor. However, the foods is great and the prices reasonable. Tomato beef chow mein, sweet and sour fish were excellent.

KingWah was a fun experience. They offer family style dinners which I have not seen in years. Not a fancy place but great for locals to get to. Saturday night all tables were full. Large tables even have center lazy susan for sharing. Spicy food was fairly mild which meant everyone could eat it. Looking forward to trying more of... More

My favorite local Chinese for lunch. Not fancy. Our favorites are always great: Shrimp & Veggies Hong Kong Noodles, Long Bean Beef, Black Bean Sauce Beef Chow Fun & Sing Chow Fried Mai Fun.

This restaurant is the best. Consistently fresh, quality food always delivered with a smile at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for? We are here once every week.

King Wah Chinese Restaurant is mediocre. We had the beef short ribs. The quantity of food was large, the flavor of the sauce was good, but the quality of the beef was poor and practically inedible. Decor is quite plain and not attractive.

This is not a fancy place. However, the food was decent and the prices are decent. The portion sizes are okay. We had chow mien which was seasoned okay. Their kung pao chicken was enjoyed by my family. I enjoyed the princess chicken. The sauce was delicious. I felt welcomed by the staff which is one reason why I would... More

This is the only Chinese restaurant that serves my dad's favorite dish - Bittermelon with Beef. And my parents often come here just to eat this one dish. Bittermelon is not for everyone. So do try the crispy noodles with beef and scallops with abalone szechuan style. I will definitely return to try the other dishes. The lady who served... More

Five of us (3 generations) went to King Wah on a Saturday night. Modest surroundings, modestly attended mostly by locals who seemed to know and enjoy the restaurant. We selected the soup and then shared 3-4 menu choices. The food was good, and we enjoyed the evening. My daughter said her favorite time to go to King Wah is for... More
