OK Place

Food was decent, but timing is everything. Don't go too late because favorite food items will gone and generally not refilled. Many buffet items to choose from.

The food is always hot and well laid out. the dinning room is clean and the staff are very nice. parking is easy in front of the building. If you are staying at a hotel... More

They have Jian dui, potstickers, and dumplings which always keeps me coming back :-). Their food is always good and the Establishment is always kept very clean. I've never had a problem with them and they are a very nice family that owns the place.

Haven't been here in a while and won't be going back anytime soon. The food was mediocre at best. Then the owners or employees little boy was loudly running laps around the room. When you pay $25 for barely ok food you'd also like to be considered a guest in a restaurant not a daycare!

Very good and clean buffet. Wide variety of foods. Friendly and affordable. The desserts and ice cream were a plus.

I feel bad about this restuarant, it's been here for years, was an excellent place to eat at first, but now this review will speak the truth. Panda King Buffet no longer can keep food hot or cold on the buffets. I've visited different times and days and there is no change. Foods cold on the hot side and foods... More

The Family and I stopped here for a quick bite before walking around the Town Centre of Frankenmuth. The people here are friendly. Their English is a little strained at times but we had no real problems. They have Sushi and a nice Dessert Bar with Ice Cream, Pudding and the like. The price was fair for what we had... More

Fresh food, lots of different choices, reasonably priced. We usually do take away, you fill up a box and they weigh it and charge by the pound. Love the crab rangoon but mostly its different chicken or beef recipes. They also have pizza and things for kids as well as a nice dessert selection and ice cream.

Our granddaughter wanted Chinese and this place had been recommended by our hotel. The price was reasonable and there was a very good selection. Everything we had was tasty. I like my food on a buffet to be hot so the odd item I had to wait until the tray was refilled, not a big deal as there were lots... More

Lunch was $7.30. For a Chinese Food Buffet this was really not all that bad. And in a tourist town this is really a Great Deal. The place looked clean, polite, bright and lots of windows. Not like some dives that you will see for Chinese Buffet. And with a family along... this was a great deal...and everyone was full... More
