This is the real deal – I am married to a woman from China, and visit Gaungzhou frequently. When I eat at Kings Land, I often forget I'm in Denver, and get surprised when the waiter answers in English. The zoe, chung fung, and all dim sum here is spot on, just like mama Chen makes it. Very impressed. I always way over order because I'm homesick for China, and want to get it all in, but when the bill comes, I am always pleasantly surprised. Usually don't give 5 stars, but I did in this case, beacause as far as an authentic, chinese meal, you can't get ay better than this even in China. Restrooms have always been spotless when I was here, and restaurant clean in response to the previous review.
Great Dim Sum brunch – I make it a point to stop in for dim sum any time I'm in Denver. staff is very friendly, service quick and orderly, food is amazing and affordable..about as authentic as you can get so far away from the source. just don't forget to open the lid of your teapot for more tea.
Excellent food and friendly service – Despite the fact we arrived with a group of six and the restaurant was catering a wedding reception of over 100 people, we were graciously received and seated in a small area away from the wedding. The wait staff was responsive to our many questions and we ordered multiple dishes. We had a wonderful squid with ginger and scallions, shrimp with lobster sauce, a spicy chicken dish, hot and sour soup and several more delicious items. The waiter told us to come in between 10 and 3 for dim sum, which we will do soon.
this is a place we will return to many times. A friendly staff and marvelous food. And no, we didn't check out the restrooms.
Authentic and delicious – The place isn't long on ambiance, but it definately caters to the asian palatte. When's the last time you ordered squid or squab at a Chinese restaurant? The menu is eclectic and the dim sum is to die for. The wait staff is attentive, if not a bit difficult to understand. Tucked away in a Vietnamese/Chinese stripmall, you can drive right by it easily so pay close attention.
great experiences – I've been here about four times, always for dim sum lunch on the weekends. I've found food service to be good--they come around almost too often asking if we'd like to try stuff. If you order a beverage, however, they forget all about coming around and refilling your soda. The food is really tasty. The prices are relatively cheap. There are actually more Asian people eating there than white people, which is always a good sign. A friend from Hong Kong has told me that this place has the most authentic dim sum that she's found in Denver. I'd recommend it.
The place to do dim sum in Denver. – In Short
This enormous space might have been a roller rink once, and disco balls and lights still hang from the ceiling. Best time to go is lunch, when the carts and crowds bustle through. You can also get dim sum for dinner, but it's made to order, which can be tricky unless you're a seasoned enthusiast. Must-tries include shrimp balls, spring rolls and dumplings. Adventurous types might opt for steamed octopus or snails on the half-shell.
dirty restaurant – Restaurant is in poor condition. Whatever you do never ever use the restroom before you eat or else you will not have an appetite. Dim Sum quality is not consistence. Dim Sum is only fresh on weekend. ( I visited both weekdays & weekend and find the Dim Sum on weekdays is old ans stale). The lines to wait for seats or long on the weekend. Wait staff are RUDE!!!
Excellent though not perfect – If you want dim sum, come here early in the morning starting at 10. Though the dim sum was good, it's not as good as in China. The service is wonderful! Try their peking duck too. The atmosphere is relaxed and great for kids. Great for big groups too.
King's Land - Only "So-so" – King's Land was my first foray into Denver Dim Sum and I have to say I was disappointed.
The food was only OK. The flavor of the food was nothing to write home about despite having a seemingly wide variety of items.
The ambiance left much to be desired. Two words: BINGO HALL.
The servers were attentive and friendly.
I was served rapidly and seated rapidly as well.
Overall, I give King's Land a "C."
User review by avillavert – GREAT place for Dim Sum. I would suggest going on Saturday just because you get faster service, get your server and the food faster, and less crowd. However, Sunday is great for the ambience of it. Reminds me of San Francisco Chinatown.
