Portland >Food & Dining > Wongs King Seafood
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.
One time wonder?. 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.
Does Not Maintain Regular Business Hours.
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!
Dim Sum on my Mind!. 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.
Real Chinese food in Portland. 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.
Oh my gosh I'm in heaven !. My very good friend wanted to take me to try Dim Sum and so she took me here. After trying some my exact words were "Oh my gosh am I in heaven " I never have had anything so wonderfly tasty as the food they keeped bringing buy to see if we wanted some. This place is the best Chinese food I have ever had .I most highly recomend it to anyone. The people in here are so sweet and friendly too, and you can't get better prices. I am in love with this place! do come here if you want the best Chinese food you will ever have.
Best Real Chinese Food. This is the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. Everything was fresh and delicious. The waitstaff is attentive and the place is spotless. You have to go to this place.
Awesome Dim Sum.
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.
The Best Dim Sum Ever!. 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!
great dim sum. 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
A swankier than average Chinese and Dim Sum palace. 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.
