First Time Visit

A friend took me to Buffet King for my Birthday. Lived 5 minutes from there but never visited until that day. I must say the food was delicious but they do need a bit of upgrading.

Our son loves the place. The rest of us enjoy the food variety at the prices offered. Good family value or for friends dining. Parking is fairly safe and service is good.

Everything taste as though it is there a long time. No flavor and I hate eating vegetables and meats that are tasting like process food rather than fresh tasting food. This place is disappointing,there are better Chinese food else where.

Had a group Christmas here, a party of around 30 persons. Food is served buffet style so it's all you can eat. Food was good and there was sufficient variety. The place was a bit crowded on the night of our visit but I guess it was because of the season. All in all a decent experience.

The good is awful. Salty. Overlooked. This restaurant needs an upgrade. To spend that kind of money on a buffet style meal and eat one item off the menu (desert) it's absolutely ridiculous. When buffet king first started, yeah. Maybe. Now?? Please don't waste your money.

I went here with my family for lunch. There is a wide variety of food to choose from. You're definitely getting your monies worth. The staff are all friendly, the ambiance is awesome. A great place to hang out with family.

My parents took me to this restaurant, traffic to get there was a bit harsh but the meal made up for it. I enjoyed the selection , the pina colada was tasty as was the food. Desert that I had was just ice cream but there was more to choose from. A relaxed atmosphere at the time that I went... More

The food is okay, but the lunch selection can be a bit limited at times. The dessert section is nothing to write home about.
