King’s Restaurant, a West Sacramento institution known for its dim sum, closed its doors Sunday after 57 years in business. Canton native Chew Lam started the restaurant in 1960 and changed its focus to dim sum 20 years later. At 93, he said he’s grown a little slower on his feet and was asked by his children to close down the restaurant. He said he loves to see and talk to people every day and will miss that in retirement.
