A large selection of items, pretty typical, a joy for a gourmand

All the usual items found at a Chinese buffet were available, plus some sushi items. There is also what appears to be a cook to order BBQ available. The food was passable, nothing to note. Crab was available in quantity for those who enjoy such. It is a large place, so seating was not a... read more

I love my Chinese Buffets. This one was very disappointing. Food had no flavor and the place was run down. I got to watch 2 different servers eat in front of me. Price was pretty steep also, around $20.00

I go to a lot of these types of buffets and this was the worst. Food was not tasty, there was only one beef selection and that was sub-par. The clientele is sketchy.... Don't leave anything on your table when you go up to get food!

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

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.

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
