First, keep in mind that I am a native from Hawai'i...a state that develops many cultures and their foods ESPECIALLY Chinese. That being said KING BUFFET, in Kentucky, develops a Caucasion-style Pallet and the Sushi Selection is in poor taste and bad rotation. I will give that atmosphere one kudo...they are very clean and sanitary.

You should probably expect generic chinese buffets to be terrible. This one is no exception. It is the same as any other one. Cold food, poor service, etc.

My boyfriend and I ate there today. Walking in place is beautiful and lots of buffet tables. After starting to eat my boyfriends drink needed refilled and I needed mine refilled by my dessert plate. However no servers were walking around checking on customers. The hostess finally got refills for one table when the customer tried to do it herself!... More

This is no better than your average Chinese buffet but it has a good selection of different types of food. They have cultural foods and many American choices as well. They will grill food for you fresh as well! Sometimes they leave some food items out too long so try not to go too late!

Let me start out by saying I love Chinese food, so perhaps I'm a little biased but this is pretty good food. I have always liked Chinese buffets and they have a very nice selection of oriental and local foods. The chicken selection is very good and they have a good amount of seafood as well. If I am hungry... More

Want a lot of Chinese food for a low cost? This is your place, for one flat fee you get to choose from their large array of different Chinese foods with a hint of American and Italian to please everyone. If I am starving and craving Chinese food this is where I go! They are the only buffet of their... More

This is a decent average Chinese buffet. The redeeming thing about it is the Mongolian style food served at the rear of the restaurant. The pre-cooked foods are okay, but the selection is not that wide and the food tends to be over cooked. The better bet is the Mongolian.

We are newcomers to the area. This was our 2nd trip to King Buffet and, unfortunately, this will be our last. Food is on the short side of average and has little flavor. I love egg drop soup, but it was totally tasteless. On this visit the food was not hot from the buffet line and there is no excuse... More

This is seriously the restaurant my family goes to the most. Every month we eat here and I've only left unsatisfied once; that was due to service and not the food. I left them a note complaining about it and no tip and the nest few times I went I could see a major improvement in service. I think it... More
