Zàijiàn To Kings Restaurant On West Capitol Avenue

We gathered with old friends to say goodbye to a West Sacramento landmark last night. Kings Restaurant will be serving up their last Dim Sum brunch this Sunday. The 94 year old owner and chef, Mr. Lam, is retiring and his local celebrity server Jennifer will be taking an extended vacation to visit her family in Hong Kong.  Will sure miss their Bao and old school chow main.

Sacramento Bee OCTOBER 25, 2017 12:03 PM King’s Restaurant, the West Sacramento eatery specializing in dim sum and with roots dating back to 1960, will close its doors at the close of business on Sunday. For decades, the restaurant at 1500 W. Capitol Ave. has been run by China native Chew Lam. Jennifer Dong, a 33-year-employee, said Wednesday that Lam is finally ready to retire. She said he will turn 94 next month. “It’s about time to retire, right?” said Dong, who said she will return to Hong Kong after the restaurant closes.
