Just So So

I used to eat here a lot but not so much lately. There is a wide selection but it always looks and tastes like it has been warmed over and maybe a lot.

Food seems old and warmed over more than once. I have been there several times at the request of others to meet there. There is a lot of it and this is a college town so that's a draw I suppose. Not one I would choose to go to.

This King Buffet is located within a reasonable distance of I-75. The location looks small from the outside, however, once inside the tables & booths are separated in a respectful manner. It contains an Mongolian grill. The buffet selections are generous. No soft serve ice cream (my favorite) but hand dipped is available. There is a large fish pond at... More

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
