Despite that shady reputation, this place apart from the CBD is the closest place I can get hold of some dim sum. Warned by groups of people that you will never find any decent dim sum here, we took a punt from Urbanspoon and tried King of Kings.
A tall name, i say.
So what have i got to say? I must say despite all the warnings, you can savour a decent bite of yum cha here after all. Not the best or the daintiest, but it looks like dim sum and tastes like dim sum.
Decent dumpling, beef tripe and my must order salt and pepper squid.
The Char Leung had a chewy core, which i prefer over the over-fried crullers you get some times.
Plump har gau that I can't complain of the reputation of the area was akin to a tourist trap.
The Polo Buns were surprisingly pleasant too.
All in all, despite the shady area and the dated decor which looks like it was untouched since the 80s, we were still served a decent meal of dim sum which was a 15 minute walk away, made much easier if the temperature stays cooling like the last weekend.
Address and contact details:
Verdict: 3 stars out of 5 stars. Find yourself wanting to eat some dim sum but don't want to travel all the way to Sunnybank, give Fortitude Valley i try.
