Weekends mean waits at this exceedingly popular Division Street dim sum palace, but once you've got your table, you're in for a treat. Try the hum bao and pork shu mai, and if you're feeling adventurous, the chicken feet. Love the slightly seedy adjoining lounge, which actually has a great happy hour twice daily, from 5-6pm and 9pm to close...think $2.50 to $5 dim sum and appetizers and $2.75 well drinks.
late night dimsum – Best idea ever. Late night dimsum in the lounge. The food is good and the drinks are wet. Great time to be had by all.
Very good service with a smile! I loved the selections to choice from. I liked very much the atmosphere, very pleasant.
Hygiene is not a word in this restaurant – Wong’s King used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant until I found a fly on my Mongolian Beef. When I called the waiter and asked to see the owner or head waiter he responded that he was in charge at that time. He picked the fly with a clean spoon and said “no more fly.” I refused to pay and he threatened to call the police, and my reply was let’s call The Health Department.
As I found out, Wong’s King is a major target by The Health Department because their hygiene is very inconsistent. Last year (2010) they had 43 points (minimum is 70). In Feb 2011 they just made it to 70. Even Taco Bell gets 70…
Best dim sum In Portland – food is always hot off the carts this is convenient for many located off Division instead of doing to downtown Chinatown and try to find parking. All items are about $4 each and you get get full under $20 for two people. Great finger foods and authentic taste
Best Dim Sum in Portland – Whenever I visit, I always feel like the only caucasian in the place. And, believe me, that's a good thing. The food and service both feel authentic. I think if you ask questions and are choosy, there is defiantely something for everyone. I try to go with at least 4-8 others; that way, if you don't care of a style of something, someone else will probably love it. I was there yesterday and was shocked at how much we all put away, and how delicious it was. Then, I was shocked at how low the bill was after 8 of us left completely stuffed. I don't live conveniently but try to get there at least every couple months. Yum, yum!
nice dim sum selection – great food and great service, probably the best seafood restaurant next to the oceancity just around the corner.
Above Average Dim Sum – While the food is on the greasy side, I expect that of Dim Sum. They have a pretty good selection of dishes that go around the carts. If you don't see what you like, there is a menu, which you can order your Dim Sum from.
I must have ordered the wrong thing... – It has been some months since dining at Wong's King, but I can almost taste the sugary-sweet food like it was yesterday. The hot and sour soup had so much cornstarch that it coated my mouth like...well you can imagine. The egg rolls tasted kind of like cabbage twinkies. The lemon chicken was lovely white meat fried chicken breast completely drowned in 'lemon sauce' which is comparable to the lemon gel in a lemon-meringue pie. It was served on top of shredded iceberg which, becoming hot from the chicken, scented the whole thing with a strange musty smell. I desperately attempted to wipe the lemon candy sauce off of the chicken before it permeated the crisp breading but it was impossible. We had plenty of leftovers-but we left them on the table. What a shame.
Great food. – make sure you order the steamer clams with black bean sauce.
Real Chinese food not Americanize Chinese – This the only Chinese resturant in Portland that has real
Chinese food that is served in China.
