Pauline Scott Customers, friends and well-wishers were present at Circular Road, Roscommon on Friday evening last as Minister Michael Finneran performed the official opening of King’s Chinese Restaurant. Vivian Bong is the entrepreneur behind the new business and she is looking forward to serving the people of Roscommon in weeks and months to come. A native of Kuching, the capital city of the Sarawak region of Malaysia, she has been in Ireland for two years. Along with head chef Simon He, she is hoping to provide local people with the very best in Chinese and Thai cuisine in a friendly local setting. Performing the official opening, Minister Michael Finneran wished Vivian and the team at King’s the very best and praised her decision to go into business in Roscommon. Speaking to Roscommon People this week, Vivian encouraged local people to come along and taste the various dishes prepared by Chinese native Simon He and his team in the kitchen. Simon has over ten years experience preparing top-quality Chinese food and if the offerings available at the official opening on Friday last are anything to go by, then his recipes are sure to go down a treat with the diners of Roscommon. Friendly staff who are able to cater for individual tastes is a feature of King’s Chinese restaurant. For example, if a customer wants a particular dish that is not on the menu, then all you have to do is ask your staff member and your request will be catered for. Quality ingredients and an emphasis on healthy steamed food is another feature at King’s Chinese restaurant. Thai dishes are proving particularly popular with customers to date, as are the traditional Chinese dishes and the bacon stick starter. A wide range of dishes is available for vegetarians and a delivery service is available. For those who prefer European food, there is a wide range of European dishes available to suit every taste. The restaurant is spacious and wheelchair friendly. Children are particularly welcome at King’s and there is a play area available for smaller children.
