King Yuen is a Chinese restaurant situated in Mentone on Balcombe Road at the rear of a small mall. Hard to find if you don’t have some good directions. You can also park around the back and walk straight into the restaurant. There is plenty of parking on hand no matter when you go.
The restaurant is medium is size but tables are packed in. On busy nights it can get a little squeezy and noisy. Not so bad that you wish you were elsewhere. Go mid-week for a romantic meal over dim sims or for just a quieter time. The service is quick and the wait staff know their menu. The place is a good spot to drop in for a quick meal. Being located in the general Mentone shopping area a meal here after a hard nights shopping is the way to go.
We were a table of six and all had different meals. There was positive comments all round for the food and the drinks list is sufficient. We all had entrees and main with drinks. For $226.00 it was a night of cheap eats. King Yuen managed quality Asian style food with good portions and fast friendly service. Hard to beat, when dinning out at better places can require a small bank loan and you don’t always get quality and service. King Yuen may not be King of the heap but it’s an honest restaurant at an honest price. Drop in after the family shop.
