King's Cafe is a paradise of mock meats and delightful littlw treats. The portions are fairly small, so order a lot of different dishes! My favorites were the wunagi sushi, pan-fried dumplings, vegan fish, and vegan duck.

The food is very good and the atmosphere is nicer than Bo De Duyen's or Buddha's. The King's Vegetable Soup is amazing! It has all sorts of mock meats, mushrooms, veggies, etc. The menu makes it clear what's vegan and what's not. They also carry some vegan desserts. The servers were very attentive.

I should also note that they have a store in the back that sells lots of other vegetarian stuff, including amazing mock meat products!

I love the food in King's Cafe. I actually live in uptown, but my friends and I go there a lot coz we love their food so much especially the hot and sour soup. The atmosphere is quite nice and it's also a nice place to bring the non-veg friends to go.

I ate here a few times when I moved into the market, but soon became tired of the food. It is all in a similar vein, some sour dishes, some mushroom dishes, not a great selection of desserts. Worth checking out for the taste and atmosphere, plus they have a shop in the back. The 'chicken' nuggets taste like McDonalds, if you enjoyed them as a kid. I warn you!

As everyone else mentioned, very friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. The food is reasonably priced, though the sushi is a little more expensive than other places. The sweet and sour oyster mushrooms are my favourite. It's a shame they took off the deep-fried wontons they had a couple of years ago, but the menu is still kickin' and if you haven't been here yet you'd better check it out!

Oh, how I love King's Cafe! The restaurant itself is a lovely place to eat, with a laid-back feeling and friendly staff. The sweet and sour bites are fantastic, and the sticky rice is full of ginger and mushrooms and completely addictive.

But, as has been stated by several people, the shining part of King's Cafe is the shop at the back. Being vegan can sometimes be frustrating with regard to convenience cooking, especially if you work long hours and don't like spending the remainder of your day crafting meals from scratch. I was saved by this shop! It's full of frozen veg*n delights like dumplings, the aforementioned sticky rice, "drumsticks", roasted "chicken" bites, "tuna" steaks, and on and on. So many things I had never had before, and so easy to fix up after work. And their house brand plum sauce is utterly divine! Just read the packages carefully, if you are vegan, as some products contain whey protein.

Nice food, spacious and super friendly staff!! Ideal for an afternoon spent with friends or family dinner. Dishes comes fast and the oriental-dishes are very tasty! Sushi is nice too..and the dishes are reasonable
The little bar in the restaurant is nice, let you choose your own dessert and ice-cream after meal...and a visit to the little store at the back is a must!! The Chinese painting on the wall is blends with the atmosphere perfectly
Superb service!! Two thumbs up for the sweet staff!

The extensive menu is now gone. It was scaled back in January/February to the disappointment of a lot of regular customers.

But having said that, the food is still delicious. Slightly more expensive that Bo De Duyen or Buddha's. The staff are super friendly and the food comes out pretty fast.

One of the best parts of King's Cafe is their "store" in the back of the restaurant where you can buy lots of frozen asian mock meats (most are vegan) and other vegan & vegetarian products.

My favourites here are the fried bean curd with vegetables (sort of tastes like a mock unagi), hot & sour soup, mixed seitan platter and their super delicious version of california rolls.

The food is very good. The menu has pictures so you can see what you are ordering. They have a great selection of soups, rice dishes, noodles, sushi, mushroom dishes (like King's Mushroom Stems) and desserts. The place is very clean and spacious. The front wall is a big window that opens up during the summer. It's all vegetarian and almost all vegan, except that you can add eggs to some dishes and they serve omelets. They have herbal and black teas, lattes, cappuccino and soy milk. The best is the King's Hot/Cold Milk Tea but prepare to get addicted to it. The food does not take too long to bring to the table even when they are pretty busy.
The only drawbacks are that they tend to bring all the food at once or very close together and it's a little pricey (but it's worth it because the food is good).
In the back they have vegan store where you can buy frozen dumplings, teas, mushrooms, etc. that you can cook at home.
