Huge selection and reasonably priced

Beijing Buffet has a huge variety of different types of food for everyone. The food was always fresh and will seasoned. If you like seafood, this is the place to come on a Friday or Sat night. There's plenty of parking and it's very conveniently located with easy access to the 101 freeway.

We went to Beijing Buffet (aka King Sun Buffet) in SSF for my mother's 88th birthday celebration. We had 40 guests & had paid for the semi-private area. When we arrived, we were placed in a corner of the open seating area. The old "bait & switch" tactic. Then the manager lied to us (he admited he'd lied) & tried... More

A month before the event we were shown a "party" room. We liked the room put a deposit only to show up on 7-5-15 with 40 guests only to be told we had to space out and sit in booths. They did a bait and switch. They were the rudest most dishonest ppl we have EVER experienced. Then we tried... More

One of the best buffet-style restaurants in the bay area. I love how caring and knowledgeable the staff are towards their customers. Frankly,, South San Francisco isn't know for too many great restaurants but this one is a standout.Now, you must pay almost 30 dollars in order to eat there. So it is about 60 dollars for two people but... More

Liked the selection of seafood and veggie dishes. A good value and it seemed that the food was set out in small quantities and restocked often which was nice.

This place is pretty good for the amount of money you pay. It's fairly expensive, something around $30 per person but there are a ton of options for all types of food. Definitely try the Schezuan dumplings, they are always making them fresh and refilling them quickly. They're probably the best thing they have. I did not expect there to... More

The spread was varied but the food was not really that good. The crab legs and other seafood was not fresh. I thought I would taste authentic chinese food but that is not the case. The place was not also that clean and service not good.

I had just checked in to a nearby hotel, and was very hungry, and saw this was in walking distance. At $17 per person I thought this was a bit overpriced, particularly for the area, but I will admit the food was good (though I was pretty hungry). However I noticed a bit further down was an IHOP, so I'd... More

Have I had better Asian Food and have had better spreads at a Buffett. But for the location and the money this was well... More

I'm not really a "Chinese restaurant" person but honestly didn't like so much the food, the way it's served and the treatment.
