Wongs 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

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

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!

Pros: Amazing Dim Sum, affordable, feels authentic

Cons: Dim Sum is only Sunday mornings, I believe

Pros: just like hongkong

Cons: too busy

My family loves to go to Wongs King on weekend mornings. The wait can be long, but their crazy numbering system, the rows of chairs in the waiting room, and the strange office building location all lend to its charms. And of course the minute you sit down, you are offered amazing dishes. We can't get enough of the shrimp noodles and pork shu mai.

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.

They have the best dim sum this side of town. On Sunday it gets pretty crowded. It is worth the wait.

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.

Quite the cavernous place. The poor economy has certainly increased customer service and food quality around the city. I was a little slow hitting Wongs, and was a bit worried based on some web reviews. I found the service a-ok and the food delicious. The braised pork belly was worth fighting over. The clams were tender and very well seasoned. The whole squid was very tasty, but I don't think I am used to the BIG SQUID! We also bickered over the Sea Bass. I was hoping for the smoked sea bass rather than the fried sea bass. Our host was gracious enough to order both! The smoked sea bass was delicate with a subtle smokey flavor. The fried version was absolutely delicous as well. A bit thinner cuts, but with a much bolder asian seasoning. I found the meal fantastic. Did I mention the pork belly? I am looking it up on line right now to try and prepare it myself! Leftovers to be served to my co-workers at work only if I mess it up.

Agree, that Wong's Seafood has excellent food. However Wong's continues to close the restaurant on weekend evenings to carter to banquets. This happens on a regular basis, very poor customer relations. Therefore, we will probably not eat at Wong's anymore, unless they decide to maintain their regular business hours.

I would encourage others not to eat at Wong's on weekend evenings until this issue is resolved. At least call ahead of time to see if they are open to the general public!

I am so in love with this place I can barely keep it out of my head. I had a lovely shrimp with scallions, ginger chicken in foil, seafood and pea, and these pork meatballs with mushroom. I also had eggplant which is never my favorite but quite good and the best was the dumpling with scallop. I can't wait til I can do it again. Slippery, sticky, and delicious. I have fallen madly again, indeed.

Every town should have one of these places, from live seafood in tanks, to whole chickens,ducks and squab, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff that a white person like me probably won't like. The food all tasts amazing and the service was exactly what i expected in a Chinese banquet hall.

Show up on the weekend, and you'll wait hours in line. It's worth it, though, because this is some mighty fine dim sum. The best I've had in Portland. The prices are ridiculously cheap. The choices are the usual dim sum fare, whisked around the restaurant in carts. The waitstaff is great, and their outfits are really cute.

Pros: Dim sum, staff

Cons: NONE, worth the wait

.

This place is more than tasty food it's a total experience. If you show up on the weekend, you will definitely be waiting in a sea of people, which is why you should bring a posse of your own. The interior is over the top and they seem to employ a million people. The staff rolls by with carts stacked with small plates of deliciousness. Be adventurous and try it all.

We were looking for a new dim sum place, as we've been tired of the older on on NE Division. We tried out Wong's King and oh my it met and excelled beyond our expectations! The shrimp tasted like shrimp, the dumpling skins were thin and light, an everything was fresh and hot. We will be back soon.
Just and fyi, we got there at 10:30 and got one of the last 2 tables in the room, by the time we left at 11:15 there were easily 50 people waiting for a table. Although I would say it's worth the wait. Also their website says they start serving dim sum at 10:30, but on Sunday they started as soon as they opened.

This place is packed on the weekends and there's good reason why! The food is hot, fresh and there's so much variety it boggles the mind. The waiters are friendly and will explain what the dish ingredients are if you're not sure. The food is reasonably priced and I drive about 35 miles to get there and with the price of gas, that says a lot! This is so worth your effort and wait, which can be a long one if you come too late. I really recommend their humbow!

very great food, very nice atmosphere, this place is well worth the wait in line. when i saw how long the line was i new that the food or something had to be good, why would anyone wait an hour if it wasnt. when i was finally seated the dim sum is rolled around fresh so the wait isnt so bad when the food is readily available, it was very tasty and good prices

Wong's King, although it is in a strip mall, definitely has a lot more ambience than your average Chinese place. The dim sum is great, with a wide variety of items on the carts with others available from a menu. Service, even on a busy holiday, was fast and responsive, although they did forget my potstickers at one point, a minor glitch. Everything was tasty.

I love everyone's purple outfits, it makes me feel like I am on a plane. Anyway. The Dim Sum is really delicious, there is a large varierty and if you can't find something you can order it off a menu. The service is quick and they have a waiting area before you are seated because every weekend they are really busy.

We had never tried Dim Sum before until or neighbors took us. We didn't know what to expect and were so pleased with the selection and service. Dumplings that look boring have incredible flavor... The seafood and the shrimp dishes were not fishy and perfectly cooked. My husband loved the pork and actually tried chickens feet if that tells you anything! Can't say enough about this place, it's a must try!

Do not go there for Dim Sum! We took friends and boy were we disappointed! There was A HAIR in the Har Gow! We have been here many times after that but never for Dim Sum again! And one tip, always search the food before taking a bite for hair. There is one restaurant I would recommend to you if you are looking for great Chinese food and don't care about the atmosphere ad fish tanks around you proving that the Seafood is fresh, OM down the street!

Moved to Portland 5 years ago, had completely given up on finding great Chinese food. Then I went here.
I grew up in NYC, have been eating authentic food since I was 4 years old. Forty four years and hundereds of restaurants( not to mention my own cooking((BTW Wei Chuan Chinese cookbooks are the best)) Wongs King is absolutely superb. The atmosphere, customer service, decor are all representative of what to expect at an authentic Chinese restaurant.
But, if you like to order Chop Suey at Panda Garden the don't waste your time or money and don't take up seating space which is understandebly at a premium at Portlands Best Chinese Restaurant.
This place is in another league compared to the others in this city. And better then 90 per cent of the places any where in New York, including Chinatown and Flushing. Better then the places I have been to in San Francisco and Canada.
Do your self a favor and get and education in real Chinese food at Wong's.
The chefs here would get 5 stars anywhere in the world.
Time to show some respect Portland.

Having sampled more than 2 dozens of Chinese restaurants in CA, WA, OR, Vancouver BC, Wong's King is probably the best authentic Chinese food restaurant in the pacific NW although there are many more in Vancouver, BC that are better than most restaurants stateside. This is really the place for authenic Chinese food with minimal service at best and weekend crowds tend to make it little irritating at time. Unfortunately for those ppl giving this place low reviews are often used to eating take out Chinese food and paying high prices. If you want atmosphere and mediocre Chinese food, get ripped off at PF Chang's or just opt for a quiet night eating at home with Panda express take out since Pork fried rice, orange chicken, or chow mein is not really Chinese food any way. For those who care more about the quality and quantity of food like a family style restaurant, you cannot beat Wong's King.

After reading good reviews we decided to try Wongs King. It was one of the most bizarre and disappointing restaurant experiences we've ever had. Here are the problems:
The servings are so big that it's actually daunting. And we normally really want decent-size servings and despise tiny gourmet servings. But really, four people could've shared one dish. The service was kind of freaky--women carried the food out, always accompanied by a man. They taped our order to our table, and then crossed off each dish as it arrived. Everywhere we looked, there were pairs of servers walking across the floor. And the food itself. Oh, it made us so sad. Granted, the calamari appetizer was called Salted Peppery, but it tasted as if each heavily battered piece had an entire shaker of salt dumped on it, and then each piece was then left to sit in a gallon bucket of salt for good measure. Next came the Schezwan Fried Fish. Yikes! Two massive pieces of fish (also very very salty), each with what seemed like a good inch of hard core batter really full-on deep fried, sitting in a thick extremely sweet sauce. We've eaten Chinese food our whole lives and have never seen this presentation. Was this just made up for Americans? Our last best hope, Mustard Greens in Supreme Sauce, arrived at the table and we knew it was over for us. A bushel's worth of whole mustard green stalks in a clear tasteless broth. How many can two people eat?? And we really really like green vegetables. We tried, and it looked like we'd hardly touched it. After a few more minutes we knew we had to get out. We could feel the salt leeching all the moisture from our internal organs. We made up a polite lie about why we couldn't take any leftovers, and we were questioned about it by 3 separate wait staff, including a manager. We ran to the car, relieved to be out of the odd atmosphere. Maybe the dim sum is good, but the food we ordered was like a confrontational art piece--you look at it and say: huh??

First off, I would definitely avoid any Americanized food here. My friend ordered General Tso's (I know, I know, but it should still be edible!) and it was gloppy and greasy, not to mention barely warm. My house special wonton soup was delicious, but the other stuff we ordered was just plain old ok. The atmosphere in this restaurant is awful - BRIGHT lights, one huge rectangular room with tables scattered everywhere - feels like eating in a high school auditorium. You don't have just one server here - anyone walking around is fair game, and no one was particularly friendly, especially when we asked food questions. I would rather eat less authentic food somewhere more plesant any day.

You don't have just one server here - anyone walking around is fair game, and no one was particularly friendly, especially when we asked food questions. I would rather eat less authentic food somewhere more plesant any day.

Pros: Lots of parking, cocktails

Cons: Lack of ambience, poor service, mediocre food, expensive

.

Considering a wedding was in progress during our first ever visit, the staff was highly accomdating and the food top notch. Bonus points for having a fairly large parking lot. and a large modern, almost Vegas looking establishment though a turn off to some, seems to fit..

I hadn't had Wonton Soup this good since the old defunct Good Day restaurant in PDX Chinatown. A huge hearty bowl, very fresh.

The Chow Fon was above average, also exceptionally fresh. The custom made deep fried tofu with black bean and broccoli was good though I've had better.

Chicken with mushroom superb. It was a pleasure to watch the various dishes pass our table on the way to the wedding party. All looked sumptuous.

Various trophies are on display with regards to the head Chef's accomplishment. A bit egotistical some would say however he backs it up.

One residing in PDX would be doing oneself a great disservice by not dining here at least once.

For my friend's birthday party, I used Wong's King catering service. The manager and I sat down and decided menu that suits my budget. The manager was very helpful and advised me what dishes are suitable for catering and what are not. On the day of party, they delivered food to my house on time and set up everything for me. All the guests were impressed with the food and I did not have to cook at all. I will definitely use Wong's King for my next party.

Not the typical hole in the wall Chinese restaurant. Fancy big restaurant that has great service. Serving food is kind of slow but most of the dishes are fantastic. I recommend the Peking duck when eating with a large group. I usually get this when eating there.

Please do not listen to these people who are giving these ridiculous 1-3 star comments, claims to lousy service, authentic food that they are not used to, etc. Seems like these people are just too used to the old Chinese-American style foods and have very little to absolutely no idea of what real Cantonese dim sum is all about. Yes, the food here is not top-notch compared to the kind you find in Hong Kong, China, or even California, Vancouver, BC, (never been to NY, but I would expect it to be pretty good there) as well. But for a town like Portland, it's easily 4 out of 5 stars for effort, variety, and authenticity.

Cantonese people can be the most pickiest of eaters, and most can say that King Wong's is the best they can get in these parts, next might be Legin, downtown China-town seems to be out-of-style with today's competitors. Someone mentioned the chef used alot of garlic and sesame oil? this is just common in Cantonese cooking, as well as other spices such as ginger, green onions, black beans, bean curds, etc.

As for the service, I admit this is about the only place I know that ACTUALLY has a waiting line with ticket numbers. That only says how popular this place really is! As for the service, sometimes it's just hard for them to explain to you exactly what is used in the food that they make, but come on! Do you expect to walk into a restaurant and have them hand you the recipe as you order? They are the waiters, not the damn chef! Some ingredients are just lost in translation, and to the less adventurous and open minded, i.e. chicken feet, beef tripe, etc. which are considered as traditional and AUTHENTIC Cantonese dim sum dishes. Asking for the check is common in any Cantonese dim sum restaurant. Dim Sum is Cantonese brunch basically, and it is traditionally served with carts going around the restaurants and you ordering the dishes as they come by. It doesn't stop til around 3 PM. Alot of people are just victims of culture shock.

My friend wanted good Chinese food for his birthday, so I decided to take him to Wong's King, even though I'd never been there before. It was a great pick! The service was attentive and friendly. We had crunchy, flavorful egg rolls with a great dipping sauce. For dinner, we ordered beef & Chinese broccoli, sweet and sour chicken, and prawns with honey walnuts. Each dish was delicious. The beef was tender, the chicken was crunchy (not mushy from sitting in the sauce), and the prawns were plump and sweet. It was a wonderful and inexpensive meal-- an appetizer and three entrees left us (my friend, his girlfriend, and me) stuffed for just $40.

Also, the lighting? It isn't like a football field at the fifty-yard line. Maybe the reviewer below was just sensitive to light or something, but I thought the chandeliers were just fine-- not blinding at all.

This is the best chinese restaurant I've been to. The service there is great as well as the food and atomosphere. They have the most amazing honey walnut prawns, peking duck and some dishes that I've never seen anywhere else. Like king's spareribs, ribeye steak with enoki mushroom rolls and so much more, they have a huge menu and the dim sum is to die for. It was well worth the wait. It's the only place in Oregon that can even compare to china itself. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who likes genuine quality chinese cuisine.

Pros: Award winning chefs and dishes, Service, Clean.

Cons: no reservation during dim sum hours

.

- Among the only 2 really for real dim sum (Legin is the other) and top 5 for 'hong-kong style' chinese (legin, gold garden, om seafood, shenzhen the others).
- Prices are not cheap (10-15/dish) 2.25/3.25/3.95/4.95 (S/M/L/XL for dim sum)
- Long wait (0.5-1 hour) on weekends and Fri/Sat nights.
- Not a late night place (try legiin if you are late night ~11pm)
- Portion size is fair, taste is above average, chef likes to use garlic and seasme oil a little too much.
- What's your pleasure? (abalone, sharks fin available, seafood.)

Specialized:
Seafood dishes
Hong Kong/Cantonese style food
Exotic Stuff (abalone)

Avoid:
Americanized Chinese (King Pao, General Tsao, Mongol Beef, etc.)

Suggestions:
Sugar snap peas with scallops ($14)
Chicken and Salted Fish Fried Rice ($10-11??)
Beef Chow Fun (Hol) Dry Style ($10-11)
House Chow Fun
Seafood Chow Fun
Fried Calamari ($9-10)

Service quality dropped a bit given they are busy and they know they are the leader in terms of chinese restaurants. Used to be excellent. Now inconsistent, sometimes sloppy, but generally good service. Ask them to bring multiple menus (otherwise lazy waiters bring only 2 to party of 8)

Within the last six months these guys raised their prices by $2-3/dish and dim sum raised by 30 cents (numbers above reflected that,) tea charge for dim sum is free (unlike elsewhere for 50 cents/person)

Their Chinese BBQ shop next door is not bad. Need to get there before 1pm on weekends before they sold out.

** For more economical dinner alternative: Try Gold Garden Restaurant nearby**

This is my first time on citysearch. I, like another reviewer, need to let folks know of our experience. After reading a number of "highly recommended" reviews, I was UP for a great new experience. We stopped on the way home, parked fine, no problem getting seated. We're very obviously NOT Chinese, or even Asian. It would have been nice if the servers explained the process a little. We ordered a very nice chicken garlic dish and some soup. Yes, very subtle flavors. But the food arrived tepid, after an unusually long wait -- when we ordered there were only 2 other tables of diners and at about 6 servers. The price seemed way high for what we ordered. And I did begin to feel I was an interloper, being Caucasian and all. When I asked questions, I was unable to understand the language and began using my "Ugly American" pointing, smiling encouragingly method. The server made what sounded like a three-word response and then walked away. I really do like learning new things. I might be tempted to go back to try the dim sum. Maybe. But there are any number of dim sum places I'd try before going back to this place

Since we had not been here before, we weren't sure what to expect. I wish someone had warned me about the bright lights. This restaurant is lit up with a number of huge chandeliers, so bright you felt like your table is on the 50 yard line at a friday night football game. With the added noise from the vast amount of diners, this is not a place to have a relaxing dinner.

The food here is primarily focused on seafood. Very fresh, but for those Portlander's that are fans of bolder spices such as Indian, Thai, or Southwest cuisine, you may be disappointed. The primary spices used here are garlic and ginger, used sparingly to let the taste of the seafood come through. You will find several types of seafood and other dishes normally not found in your neighborhood joint, such as jellyfish or duck feet, and that explains why most of the clientele is Chinese. We also did order some of the more traditional Cantonese and Sichuan dishes and were disappointed as they are no better than anywhere else, at quite steep prices.

A couple things I found unusual, such as only providing one menu. When we asked for more, they brought only one more. Must be a shortage. The other was when our server taped the bill to the side of our table as we were just getting our appetizer. At first we thought perhaps we looked like we couldn't afford the check and they wanted us to pay before they served us anything more expensive, but later decided it was probably because the person taking our order did not bring the food items to the table. Although the restaurant hours posted say it's open till 11:00, the place suddenly emptied after 9:00 and we were the only diners left. We thought they has closed and forgot to tell us...

It was certainly a unique dining experience. If you are a fan of very fresh and unusual seafood prepared very simply, have trouble reading menus without a searchlight, and have a high limit on your American Express, this place could be for you!

This is an amazing Dim Sum restaurant! The dishes are very authentic, and those from China will tell you it is very similar to what they would find in their home country. If you are more used to an "American" taste, start with the Shumai or the Dumplings, then work your way to the dishes that look more unfamiliar and keep an open mind. The trick here is not to get too much of one thing. Just get one small plate and wait until you've seen all the carts before settling on getting another plate of the same dish.

Also, please don't take the harsh critiques about service too seriously, especially the one with the incredibly insulting title of "Dim Sum Good. Treating you like an ignorant American Bad" review (it's ironic that this reviewer claims racial injustice, yet chooses a title that is laced with Rosie O'Donnell-like racially derogatory mockery). The service is good for the restaurant being so busy all the time! But as a word of encouragement, do not be discouraged if you happen to perceive that you may be treated differently than those around you when you go for the very first time...believe me, it is NOT a matter of race! It is actually just a culture clash. I did not know this before, but my friend from Hong Kong has said that it is common for restaurants to treat those that are regular patrons more like family than those that are strangers. So if you feel a little out of place the first time, KEEP AN OPEN HEART and expect to feel more and more like family as you return........ One down side is that there is usually a long wait...so just like with Cheesecake Factory, plan on getting there 40 minutes before you're hungry and your stomach will thank you. Also, be aware of the parking situation. The place is very busy. So I would recommend that you either plan to get there right at opening, or just park on the street and NOT EVEN TRY the parking lot! Seriously, you could get in an accident trying your luck.

I read the most recent review of this place and had to post a comment. While my experience at Wongs was not a good one I can appreciate good food when I come across it. I did not appreciate the service that I recieved while here but felt that the dim sum was very good. The person who wrote the the previous review obviously does not know what dim sum is and was looking for something more like panda express. If you are looking for broccoli and beef and fried rice then authentic chinese cuisine is not in your vocabulary. While the menu has offerings such as those for picky non adventurous americans I don't suggest they come to a place that specializes in so much more. The haw gow and the hom bow as well as the duck feet are so delicious that I couldn't imagine why someone would order a plate of sweet and sour chicken unless they were an ingnorant tasteless being. I do have to admit that the service here was terrible and that the table that they seat you at determines the service that you receive.Not to mention that the seating is preferential due to your ethnicity.

I just finished my first meal at this place after I heard good things. Those things were false. Everything I ordered was disgusting. I spent almost $30 on an entree, fried rice and appetizer and I couldn't eat a quarter of it. I can honestly say that this was the worst chinese food I've ever eaten, and I've eaten in some divey places. I was so disgusted about how bad the food was that I signed up for citysearch just to keep people from eating at this place. The "chicken" fried rice was bland and rubbery. The molgolian "beef" was far too soft and fatty and if you can believe that scezhuan can be bland, it was. The crab puffs were the best thing I had and the fried exterior was chewy and doughy instead of being light and crispy. I really can't say enough bad things about this place. I've heard that there is no good chinese food in Portland and if this place (getting a 9.1 on citysearch before I went) is any indication, I'll drive to seattle before I eat chinese in this town again. DID I SAY DISGUSTING??!??! If it was that bad going in, I can only imagine how bad it will be coming out. I've already got a gut ache. Steer clear of this place if you like good food and want to avoid stomach pain.

I gave up eating Chinese food when I moved to Portland 8 years ago. I grew tired of neon pink BBQ pork and fortune cookies. Wong's is the best Chinese in town and I will go back for sure. The variety on the menu was endless and the food reminded me of my summers in China. I highly recommend the prawns with honey walnuts. The servings are large so expect to eat family style.

Wong King's is hands down the best dim sum food that Portland has to offer. I've eaten in Hong Kong and the BC areas and although this restaurant is not quite as good as those other places, it still can hold its own. I would recommend to every dim sum lover to try Wong?s King at least once because you will not be disappointed. Also, once you?re there ask for eggplant shrimp, it?s one of my personal favorites and most of the time you have to order them.

My biggest gripe about Wong?s King; however, is the long wait times, especially on the weekend. WARNING: Expect to wait anywhere between 25-45 minutes before you get a table. By this I mean during the weekends and the time varies depending on the time of arrival. The earlier you get there the better your chance of getting a faster wait time.

Whoever wrote the last review must be an idiot. Wong King is simply the best Chinese food there is in Portland. The chef is actually a high ranking chef in China, winning many culinary awards. Seafood dishes are, of course, their strong points. Their BBQ duck is pretty good too. Order a whole duck and they'll cut it up for you at the table and make 2 dishes out of it; one with rice buns wrapped over crispy duck skin and another that's chopped up and stir fried.

Wongs king looks nice, but the food and service is third world rated! They try to be first class chinese restaurant but is no better then your local american chinese restaurant. The food is NO WHERE UP to the standard of authentic chinese food. I been to many of the best chinese restaurant in the west coast and in asia. IF you want real chinese food go to KIRIN in richmond BC.
