Kim Wah

Usually dine in for their smorg. More often than not you have to wait for the items to be refilled before you can start. The dining area is very drafty (cold) and the owners seem to hover over the wait staff which I find really annoying.

I will never eat at this restaurant again. The food was sub-par, the staff were rude, the management were rude, the ambiance was non-existent and the place was dirty.

You couldn't pay me to dine here again. The owner treated my family very poorly. I will never recommend this establishment to anyone.

Kim-wah's is not among my list of favorites, but does have certain qualities that make it a good place to stop and have a talk over a meal with loved ones. Also a great stop if you have been craving for Chinese food.

Have eaten here many times. The buffet is slightly above average, but still the best I've had in the area. Better off to order off the menu. The spicy squid is delish.
