I've been here several times in the past, especially when it was under a different name - that of a large bear. I was in the neighborhood last night and decided to try it again since it's been over a year since I last visited. Not much has changed. This was a Saturday night about 7:15. They are open until...

OK, if you can't afford to eat anywhere else, then eat here. I do not recommend it. Usually I love Chinese. But this just isn't right. Something smells funny - maybe it is the oil they use? I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't be the one to review this.

This is our "go to buffet" when passing through Duluth and need a quick tasty meal. Right off the freeway exit 252. Shrimp is especially good, as is their "wide noodle" lo mein. Efficient staff who are always quick with our bill so we can be on our way when finished.

This restaurant is just a place to fill an empty stomach with something that resembles Chinese food. It is like eating at a homeless shelter with a little less quality and a lot less love in the food.

There are lots of choices here. Appetizers, a few American tid bits, many main courses. Always clean and food is consistently good.

I have eaten at the china king buffet before. Love it. I come with my family -- 4 kids and the wife. Always tip the staff $10 or more. Tonight, a friend and I went to eat dinner. We both walk in hungry, wearing suits and tie. Looking clean, cut and professional. They made us pay in advance because we... More

And as far west as Cloquet. Sorry, I think I have tried them all. China King might be the worst. It features bad service and average to poor American Chinese food in an over-all dirty restaurant. Top that power combo with the scoop-your-own hard ice cream "buffet" that has no sneeze guard or anything else to keep stuff from falling... More

I just recently tried this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! There is a good variety and the environment is nice. I went on the weekend and again for a lunch buffet. I will go back often!

Wide variety of foods. All pretty darn good. Good hot tea. Avoid the sushi. I've never had good buffet sushi, even at places that are $25 all you can eat sushi places. Ok salad bad and desserts. Lots of room to be seated and rarely do you have to wait for more of one particular food. They run a pretty... More

This was a typical american style "chinese" buffet. It was clean. Service was a little under average, but not awful. Food was exactly the same warmed up food as many other chinese buffets, but everything was dried out or over-fried. First chinese restaurant I've tried in Duluth and I most likely won't be back.
