Koi Palace: A User's Guide

Chinese Dim Sum | Succulent Seafood | Lunchtime Crowds | Opulent Setting

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: shanghai steamed dumplings
  • Chef's special: stir-fried beef in orange glaze
  • Seafood: steamed lobster with garlic and vermicelli
  • Dessert: coconut-banana custard

    When to Go: Koi Palace is notorious for drawing big crowds, especially for the dim sum. But know this: the dim sum is only served during lunch hours, so plan your visit accordingly.



    While You're Waiting

    • Marvel at the grandeur of the dining room, from its high ceilings held aloft by towering pillars to its Chinese statues and massive hanging plants.
    • Make friends with the live lobsters and crabs scuttling around inside the restaurant's custom-built aquarium.

      Inside Tips

      • If you really want to impress someone on their golden birthday, Koi Palace has you covered. Order up the Golden Birthday Supreme Dinner—a smorgasbord of Chinese delicacies, including a whole suckling pig.
      • Reservations are strongly encouraged.

        Vocab Lesson

        • Dim sum: bite-size Chinese dishes typically served à la carte in steamer baskets
        • Geoduck: a species of large clam that's commonly found in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. It appears frequently on Koi Palace's menu in dishes ranging from sashimi to soup.

Weary workers were the first dim sum diners. After a long day, they'd stop into small eateries built along Cantonese roadsides for the comfort of hot tea and bite-size snacks. Dim sum traditions have evolved since then; the dining experience is now more social than solitary. At Dim Sum King, families and friends gather to share leisurely meals of sumptuous Cantonese-style small plates. Weary workers are welcome too, of course: don't be surprised if you see a businessman devouring Peking-style spare ribs, or a mime slurping hand-pulled noodles after escaping his last invisible box of the day.

Dim Sum for the Novice (or the Aficionado)

You may not be familiar with every dish on Dim Sum King's menu of delicacies. Here's a quick rundown of highlights, ranked from most familiar to most adventurous.

  • For the cautious novice: barbecue pork buns, shrimp dumplings with XO sauce, pan-fried turnip cake
  • For the curious return eater: Shanghai soup dumplings, baked durian puff
  • For the adventurous expert: slow-cooked chicken feet, steamed goose intestine, sliced pigs' ears in spicy sauce

Momiji's signature dish is ramen, but don't expect the salty, microwaved stuff popular with college students. The ramen here is as authentic as it comes, with fresh ingredients like udon noodles, mushrooms, and soft-boiled eggs simmering in one of 10 varieties of chicken- or pork-based broth. Vegetarian versions, meanwhile, are prepared using a savory kelp and mushroom base, and customers can customize their steaming bowl by giving it a name and picking and choosing from a list of 14 vegetable and meat toppings. Beyond the comforting soups, chefs here whip up a list of mostly seafood-based small plates, including deep-fried octopus or Japanese whiting fish, as well as a number of donburi, or rice bowls, topped with proteins like Japanese fried chicken and braised pork belly.
