Review: King Chef Dimsum Kitchen

If you happened to be at Banawe and crave for some dimsum dishes, King Chef Dimsum Kitchen is a place to try. They have wide variety of Chinese dishes from congee, dimsum, and other dishes which is perfect for sharing and most of all; they have affordable prices without sacrificing the taste of each delicacy.

The Place

Their Banawe branch (which is located at the 2nd floor of a building) is a very cozy area and so far, the only Chinese restaurant I am able to visit without having the usual round table set-up for customers.

It can accommodate more than 70 people inside. The staffs too are very accommodating and attentive.

The Food

A perfect Rosemary tea to start of.

Fried Prawn Dumpling

Beancurd Roll

Duck Wanton

As I mentioned, they have available dimsum dishes here and one of them is Fried Prawn Dumpling. As you bite, you can taste the very juicy prawn inside and it’s big too. If your taste buds are looking for something unique in taste, you can also try their Beancurd Roll. Also available is their Duck Wanton, which they use duck as the main ingredient together with other sauces, rolled into a wanton and deep-fried. Looking for something with a kick of spiciness? Try their Dynamite. But it’s not the usual Dynamite that we use to eat – instead of cheese; they use meat and stuffed it in green long chilis. They also have Hakaw, Sharksfin, Pork and Japanese Siomai and other dimsum here at King Chef.

For the main course, their Taosi Spareribs is a must-try. The meat is soft and tender at the same time plus the taosi sauce got the perfect blend for me. Looking for dishes perfect for sharing? Try their Barkada Rice Bucket with 3 kinds of meat (Soyed Chicken, Asado and Braised Beijing Pork) on top of rice inside a big bucket. It’s a dish perfect to share for about 3-4 people. A perfect dish to warm you up this rainy season is their Congee Feast. For me, their congee dish is my highly recommended dish to try.

Congee Feast
Desserts? Try their Mango Balls. It’s a sticky rice ball with shredded coconut and stuffed with mangoes at the center. Their Pumpkin Balls is also a must-try. At first I thought it was not a dessert at all since it looks like a mini pumpkin but as soon as I tasted it, the sweetness of the sweet bean paste inside makes this dessert my favorite. Also don’t be fooled at their plain looking Malay Cake – because it’s been a crowd favorite for the richness of the flavor and the softness of the cake itself.

The Price

Their prices are also similar to other Chinese restaurants I have visited before. But what’s surprising about King Chef is that they have schedules where the prices of their dimsums drop by almost up to 50% of the price (they call it “Dimsum Promo Hour”). It happens 3x per day, (8:00AM-10:00AM, 2:00-5:00PM and 9:00PM-12:00AM). And it is also everyday from Mondays-Sundays. So if you want to order more dishes with affordable prices, be sure to drop by during those times.

Verdict: 4.5 / 5

Overall, King Chef Dimsum Kitchen will be my place to visit again soon. Because aside from the delicious dimsum and mouth-watering desserts, they have also affordable prices. It's a place to visit here in Banawe for Chinese dish cravers and fellow foodies out there. Two-thumbs up!
