Being an Ongpin / Chinatown person for the longest time, I rarely recommend specific places 'coz most of their food taste good anyway!. Walang itulak kabigin! Lahat naman masarap! Not until now! This grand Chinese restaurant is the perfect DIMSUM haven! Believe me my Taste Buddies! Everything we ate was so awesome! Special mention: Hakaw & Siomai XO! And before I forget their Chicken Feet was the best I've ever tried! To die for guys! Promise! And did I tell you yet? All these are at 50% from 2-5pm & 9-11pm daily! Kudos KING CHEF! You really are not the KING for nothing! #yummiestdimsumever

Haggling with the vendors in Divisoria must've triggered my dimsum craving... and it's worth it. The food of course. The hakaw just gets me :D :D

We have been ordering same food every visit. Prawn with salted egg. Imperial hong ma with man tau and fried spareribs with 8 spices. Always yummy.

So I'm just sharing a not-so secret when you dine at King Chef.

You can always ask for free dessert and they will give you free almond gulaman! My favorite!!! 128523128523128523

It was our first time here and we usually avoid this restau since it always had a waiting line outside and frankly, no longer a fan of chinese food that much.

Anyway, we were given a menu that seemed too short for a chinese restau and had no prices indicated! Kakakaba ah!hehe so we asked for some dishes that weren't on the provided menu & prices. Turned out, there was some renovation going on in the kitchen and there were only selected dishes avail. So we ordered ordinary stuff and we enjoyed what had like the xo siomai, king chef seafood congee, hakaw. The brisket bowl was good too but the white chicken was terribly boring and tasteless.

Thing is, they didn't serve everything we ordered and took them super long before they addressed our complain. We even saw our dish served to another table even if we got there first. Bf was so annoyed since we were all done and he was still waiting for his order. Good thing we shared my congee na lang! So when they were discussing the missing items, then came out our dishes. Naturally we just had to cancel it🙄. In the end, the manager told us that some of what we ordered were out of stock already and our server didn't inform us. So we were waiting for nothing! Plus, had we known there was 50% off discount on dim sums, we wouldn't have chosen this restau for dinner since things like this are likely to happen even if there weren't really that many customers.

I think it's so annoying when the servers have the guts to not write your orders down then fail to get it right in the end. I guess it's all a matter of proper training and operation. Actually, our server was nice and she did apologize a lot and we didn't really intend to make a scene or anything. it's a Good thing though bf wasn't that hungry to throw a fit but I know, had it been my dish, all hell would break loose and they're gonna get it from him for sure haha

I have the impression that this resto is not as good as the one in Banawe because I heard it from someone when it opened here in Lucky Mall. But upon dining here for 3rd time now. This place is actually becoming my favorite Chinese restaurant here in Binondo.

They kept on surprising me with their super delicious food not to mention that the serving is really big. The one in the picture is a new discovery. It is in their vegetarian menu and since my mom is always pretending to be vegetarian. We got this baked taro with mushroom and spinach. Woah! It is super good! I am not a big fan of Taro even during the milk tea hype but this one is different. The flavor is just uniquely refreshing a bit sweet and really thick and gooey. It paired well with the herbal flavor of the mushroom and with strips of spinach making it really healthy. It also has this bits of crunchy stuff in it that I cannot figure out what! 🤔🤔🤔

We are dining here again this weekend for my mom's bday and hope to try their other dish and get this baked taro once again. 128513128523

After more than half a day of walking in the Divisoria hustle, included the feeling of hyper-alerted senses because it's near Christmas..better safe than sorry... we were too tired at 5pm. Gotta rest for a while over dinner so we went straight to King Chef's!

I am still impressed with their food. Good Chinese cooking there. Pwedeng pwede na and deserves a five star because of the commendable customer service! One waiter was assigned to our table to really check if our teapots needed refilling and did so in a very timely manner. 128079🏻128079🏻 they were all friendly too. bravo!

Of course the food were good. Not too salty and had just the right amount of taste that suited our buds.

SEAFOOD SPINACH SOUP 511088
So good! Add some black vinegar to enhance taste. One small serving is good for three already. We had almost two bowls of this each. Price is not bad!

SAUTÉED SQUID IN XO SAUCE 4.5-511088
They know how to cook the squid such that it's not too chewy nor undercooked. Loved it! The XO sauce, semi-sweet and semi-spicy complemented it well. Together with the sautéed celery which I ate! I don't usually eat celery because of the after taste but theirs was good!

TAIWAN PECHAY WITH 3 KINDS MUSHROOM 411088
Also really good for me! Liked it! It had three kinds of mushroom, liked the two mushrooms while did not like the taste of the egg/oval-shaped one (idk what the name), AS ALWAYS. Hahaha, not their fault. I just don't like its taste! Pechay was, i think, sautéed if not blanched.

FRIED CHICKEN - 3.5-411088
Just paid 1 peso for this! If your bill reaches 1500 pesos, half order of their fried chicken just cost a buck. Tasted good in terms of seasoning but the meat was kinda tough.

STUFFED EGG PLANT 4.511088
Two big egg plants stuffed with seafood - shrimps and squids, not sure if they added oyster or scallops. And cooked in sweet sauce. I liked it. 128077🏻

King Chef is one of those good Chinese restaurants I will surely keep on visiting. 128077🏻

Another good Chinese restaurant to date. King Chef serves delicious Chi food and fresh seafood. Prices don't vary that much with other seafood restaurants but they got a tempting promo of 50% off for dimsum treats. And this is available EVERYDAY at 3pm!!

Aside from the fried suahe with salted egg, this is my second favorite when in King Chef. The big slices of hongma plus the big mantao is just so good I can eat just this for days. 6 generous slices with the thick, sweet and syrupy sauce just made this dish perfect. My friends find it weird to eat this when also eating rice because of the mantao which is just normal with me and my family. #sanayanlangyan 128513128540128523

Happy father's day to all the dad looloo users out there! I salute you! Fist bump! 128074🏻

Ate dinner here, we usually order steamed suahe which is my dads favorite but this time we were suggested to try their fried suahe with salted egg so we opt to give it a try. Good decision! 128561 this is soooo good. I don't really like eating shrimp with the skin but this changes everything!! The salted egg is with the crumbs so you just have to eat everything and it is really amazing!!!

Also ordered fried seafood roll which is just okay, beef brisket hotpot which is good and duck wrap which is bitin since I only got to eat one, serving is too small but price is big so didn't bother to order another one. #isipinmonalangdietka.

What is unusual is when the servers started dancing to Nae Nae song and everyone just stopped and started taking videos and I was like, Oh My please bring out our rice first we are so hungry already. 128513128539

Again, Happy father's day!

I was generous enough to give them a three.

The food was good for me. Typical Chinese restaurant for me, reminds me of Golden/Silver Crown (if you guys are familiar). This particular dish quickly caught my attention because of it's enticing presentation - but that's just it.

Basically:
✅Food Taste
✅Food Presentation/Creativity
✅Pricing
❎Ambiance
❎Service
