Passing through Milpitas yesterday, I spotted the "grand opening" sign and stopped to take a look. I'd already eaten so I didn't partake of the dim sum service, but I did speak to a manager. He said that King Wah has been open for three months and has the same owner as King Wah in Daly City. It's not related to the spots of the same name in Oakland that I believe are closed.
The spacious interior is shiny new with lots of frosted glass and brocade in the manner of Hong Kong style seafood and dim sum palaces. Even at 2pm, the place was still about half full. Not inexpensive, the dim sum prices on the check-off menu are:
$6.00 chef special
The taro mountain buns (called baked taro sweet bun on the menu) that Cary is looking for are here as a "medium".
There's a full blown seafood menu and the photos look good. But, I'd love to hear from someone who's tried it.
