Last Sunday, I invited my mom to have a dimsum brunch with me. After asking around and searching the web, I found out that King Chef Banawe serves dimsum at a discounted price from 8 to 10am daily. 128156 When we got there at around 8:30am, there was a long line outside, but I was glad that it didn't take too long before we were seated. Here's what we ordered:

✅ PORK CENTURY EGG CONGEE (Php 140) - 110881108811088
This was HUGE! It could feed about 2-3 persons, in my opinion. I wish there were more slices of century egg though. The congee was cooked to such a thick consistency, making it a bit hard to enjoy. It also lacked a bit of flavor. At least the pork slices were tender. 128513

128114 DIMSUM:
✅ 2 orders of CHICKEN FEET (Orig Price - Php 85, Discounted Price - Php 60) - 1108811088110881108811088
We loved this so much, we had to order one for each of us so our cravings will be satisfied. There were 4 chicken feet in one serving, and I loved how the sauce had the right spice to it. 128076

✅ 1 order of TAOSI SPARERIBS (Orig Price - Php 90, Discounted Price - Php 60) - 110881108811088
This was not that memorable. While the spareribs were tender, it was just that. Nothing special about it, TBH.

✅ 1 order of HAKAW (Orig Price - Php 115, Discounted Price - Php 73) - 1108811088110881108811088
I am an avid fan of Hakaw, and King Chef has one of the best Hakaw I have ever tasted, for a relatively affordable price. 128076The shrimps are all plump and fresh. 🦐 Best dipped in their house chili garlic oil. 128156

✅ 1 order of HAM SOY KOK (Orig Price - Php 100, Discounted Price - Php 67) - 110881108811088
This was a bit too oily for my liking. But the meat filling tasted good! 128525 They could probably make smaller pieces instead, but with more pieces per serving? Just so we can share the calories. 128586128513

✅ 1 order of HK RICE ROLLS (Orig Price - Php 140, Discounted Price - Php 78) - 110881108811088
Okay. This was super duper filling. If you want to enjoy more dimsum, do not get this. 128517 It tasted okay, with asado bits and baby shrimps. There were more than 10 rolls all in all... This was the culprit that left my mom and I feeling SUPER full. 128514

Considering we ordered a lot and were super full after, we just spent Php 538 on this!!! 128525 Great value for money indeed. 128076

Service was good, despite being a super busy Sunday morning for them. I just wish they put up more lights, as I found the restaurant to be too dark. Or probably the lights weren't on full blast since it's still the morning? 128517

Nonetheless, King Chef is always a good and recommendable place to grab some dimsum, especially during their promo house which happens thrice a day. 128525128156

P.S.: Giving them 411088 instead of 5, because they broke my heart by tellinb me that their bean curd roll was out of stock. 128557

As I've mentioned countless times, I absolutely love dimsum! 128525128114 So when we planned to have our late dinner in Banawe last Friday after attending our professor's wake (may she rest in peace 128557), I suggested that we have dimsum, and they agreed. YAY!

We got there at around 10pm, in time for their discounted dimsum. (I think they have discounted dimsum thrice a day: early morning, nid-afternoon, and late night) We had to queue for a couple of minutes, but we're seated shortly. The restaurant was packed! We quickly ticked off the items we want, and handed over our list to the server. The freshly steamed / fried food were served in no time. 128523 Here's what we got:

✔ 2 orders of Pork Siomai (Php 60/order) - 11088110881108811088
✔ 2 orders of Hakaw (Php 73/order) - 1108811088110881108811088
✔ 1 order of Chicken Feet (Php 60/order) - 1108811088110881108811088
✔ 2 orders of Beancurd Roll (Php 73/order) - 11088110881108811088
✔ 2 orders of Sharksfin Dumpling (Php 60/order) - 11088110881108811088
✔ 1 order of Minced Shrimp Puff (Php 73/order) - 11088110881108811088

I won't rate each item one by one anymore, as I can confidently say that all items tasted super fresh, and it was evident that they did not try to scrimp on them, especially since they were discounted already. For those who can't live on dimsum alone, you may opt to order an additional cup of rice for Php 45! 128076

The service was surprisingly quick, given the fact that there were a lot of customers during that time. Servers were generally courteous, too.

King Chef has the usual Chinese restaurant feel: well-lit, noisy during peak hours, and filled with the aroma of their food items. For me, it lives up to its name -- having a King (someone we regard highly) as their chef. Kudos to them for satisfying our dimsum craving, and for delighting our hungry tummies! 128513128055

Went here for a late lunch and it seems i was just in time for their afternoon promo from 2pm to 4pm or 5pm. Didnt know that they had promo for the aftenoon but it was great as it was not as packed as evening promo time.

All dimsums were good and freshly steamed. 128522

Been missing this place and weve finally was able to dine here on a rainy weekend which contributed to its "those rare nights with no long lines" but still its packed inside. 9pm onwards all dimsum were on promo within range of 50 to 70 pesos. Good deal right?

Almost all dimsum are of good quality, abit noisy and erratic inside but the food is great so all is good. 128522 after the dimsums came one after another i forego taking any pics until that birds eye dumpling came in last. *snap* 128522

Last 2014, I've celebrated my bday in King Chef Fine dining. I wanted to go back there again but it was still close at 3pm. We were already hungry that time because we skip lunch to watch my nephew's recital. So I had no choice but to try the Dimsum resto just to fill my angry tummy. To my surprise, the dimsums were really good. They had this dimsum discount in the afternoon so we enjoyed some unli dimsum. Best was the fried shrimp! I also ordered the pork braised rice but it was too fatty for me. Wasn't able to finish it all. But their beef wanton soup was also good and it's a big serving. Overall, my tummy was happy. Definitely a comeback on my list whenever I would crave for dimsum.

We love dimsum that is why we recommend King Chef Dimsum Kitchen because it serves yummy dimsum. We ordered their bestsellers - Beancurd roll, Hakaw, Bird’s eye dumpling, Xiao long bao, Sesame prawn rolls and Butchi. Everything tastes good including their Milk tea. Sesame prawn rolls is a must-try here.
Visit the resto during off peak hours because they offer 50%-discount on all dimsum.

The ambiance at their Banawe branch is big, clean and very inviting but can be crowded even during off peak hours. Service is fast and staff are nice.

Is it worth coming back? Absolutely!

I love this place! They offered me this discount card that my friend had. It's a good deal! For Php 300, you get a lot of discounted food choices for a whole year. Then when you want to renew it, it will only be Php 150. Also, there are certain time slots within the day when certain meals and dimsum are on promo price. You just can't use the card the day you purchased it.

Fortunately, me friend had her card. For 4 people, we only paid 980. This includes 4 rice meals, 7 dimsum choices, 1 coke in can, 1 milk tea and a pot of hot tea.

Hello, to the place where my relatives eat their snacks aka "merienda" almost everyday haha. I guess.

Oh well, they just really love Chinese food haha. Like all the time when i go in manila, i guess the last time i was in manila they probably ate like 4x in this place haha. I guess they liked it because the dimsum was yummy & healthy food too. (Kasi steam lang) 128514128514

In the afternoon, they have this promo in their dimsum like when you order any, the original price of it is 50%! But take note, the promo is until 5pm... I don't what time will it start. :))

What we ordered in here was their radish cake (but i don't like it that much, only my aunts) but to others you can try & maybe you'll like it HAHA. Also! Hakaw (yummy!!), for their order is the chinese lugaw! ( i don't like the taste of it because lots of veggies in it 128554), & their siomai (is okay too, kinda tasty), && my favorite in here is their sesame shrimp rolls! (2pcs serve with a dip) i cannot describe the taste but it's good hahahaha. Must try! :)

The place is on the 3rd floor:) i forgot the name of the compound. 128514 The service was also good & the waiters were very fast haha 🤘🏻 & Hoping the promo still goes on until now haha.

We had our lunch here from an overnight at a friend nearby. Unfortunately, we were too early for their promo and we were all hungry as well.

I ordered a lot of dimsum such as Siomai, Spareribs, Hakaw and Xiao Long Bao. Nothing special on the dimsum, but they were all good and tender. I am disappointed thay they DO NOT offer Yang Chow (how could it be possible?!) so I stick with plain rice to match my dimsum. Sadness!

I also ordered their version of milk tea and it was really good!! I could order another round of drink if I was not full!

If you happen to pass by Banawe please do visit this place! They serve a whole variety of dimsum from our all time favorite pork siomai to new to our taste dimsum like duck dumplings. My personal favorite is their fried prawn dumpling and xiao long pao! Their misua ko and pumpkin congee are also very delicious and very unique! So if your taste buds are craving for some dimsums? Visit them at 238 banawe! 9786️
