I have eaten here a hand full of times and sometimes the food it is good and sometimes it's not, a lot of it has no taste, I think the best thing is the egg drop soup and one of the shrimp dishes, my boys like the skewers and one likes the sushi

I was here long ago and it was pretty bad, and about what you expect at a cheap Chinese buffet. But I was just here today, and was quite surprised. I came here with some friend who had a discount coupon, so lunch was only $5.99. Let's be clear that this price does not include and drinks besides water. If... More

I dined here on a Sunday and it was fairly busy, however the food was always being changed out. I have had rice on buffett's that were just plain "hard" and scraped from the bottom of the pot, but not here. Some of the choices include: crab legs, Mongolian bbq, clams and several kinds of shrimp. Also, the price was... More

This was the first (and Last) time we had eaten at his restaurant. The "Hostess" was too busy to be bothered with us, she was using her I-phone. As we had not been here before, we asked our server for directions, she spoke so softly, we could hardly hear her. As I work in the food service industry, I can... More

I have seen this place many times and I gave it a try on my own to see if I wanted to bring my wife here. I was expecting sushi. There were a few California rolls, but no sushi. It was mostly poorly done low level "Chinese" dishes. If you want to stuff yourself on "stuff" for the price of... More

Food: between my wife and I, we tried the majority of foods available. Most were bad, some were merely bland in a cardboard-esque sense, and a few were actually marginally edible. The vegetarian "sushi" was probably the "best", if you somehow find yourself forced to go here. Food, cont.: Unfortunately my wife became ill after eating here. We'd had nothing... More

King Buffet is your typical Chinese/Asian buffet restaurant - all you can eat for a fixed price. The variety and prep are standard for this type of restaurant. What many people miss, however, is the Mongolian bbq at the back corner of the buffet. They have pork, beef and chicken, plus a variety of veggies and other accoutrements which you... More

This basically Chinese buffet has a very good variety of foods. My vegetarian grandson will even go there and find enough to please him. The Chinese food is standard fare but fine.

I like it here because they have lots of food to pick, friendly servers, cool water tank and sushi too. Can't wait to come back for more. :D
