Numerous selections, fresh, and tasty. Great pricing. Not a fancy dining area but does the trick. On our list of places to eat every time we come here.

I love this place. I eat here all the time. It's quick and very affordable. They have loads of delicious dim sum and several hot dishes as well. My faves the crazy shrimp ball, the ginger fish, and the chicken and mushrooms

The Dim Sum King is alright. There's nothing that stands out too much except everything's a bit overly sweet. The taro dumplings are pretty good, the potstickers are pretty good. Neither are top of the mark but both are certainly edible. I think the Hong Kong Bakery in Mountain View offers much better baked buns.

This place is always clean, with hot food ready to eat. The prices are pretty good here. 3 steamed bbq pork buns for $2.55. Pretty great deal, especially because they are big and delicious. When you walk in, they have a table to the right, with all sorts of snacks, and sweets. The chicken pot stickers are huge, the sweet... More

I remember when this place first opened, the people that worked here were really nice and the food was pretty good for a take out dim sum place. As the years have gone, the food tends to fluctuate from good to average. But the service has really gone down. Maybe because the owners use to work the service station, but... More

We get a variety of dim sum dishes here, usually to go. Always tasty. Tsu-mai and ha-gow are my favorites. And having Chinese broccoli is a good way to get some healtyy greens.

First time at Dim Sum King. My mother raves about this place a lot. I live in the panhandle of Florida so dim sum is a rare treat. Whoever gave Dim Sum King an "okay" review must not have any taste buds. This is one of the best tasting dim sum I've had in a long time. They have a... More

It is the only authentic, inexpensive, and consistent dim sum joint I have discovered in Sunnyvale. The staff is friendly and they aren't stingy about sauces and chopsticks. That is a huge plus for me. Overall quality of food is about 8 out of 10.

I'm from Oregon and I had heard this was the best Dim Sum in the valley. It was pretty good but I wouldn't say it was spectacular. There was a pretty good variety but some were a bit underdone and not as impressive as I remember in China (is that possible??) And it felt too much like a fast food... More
