Said on door close at 10:30 we arrived at 9 no choice of good and what little food that was there was very cold. While eating the staff was boisterous and cleaning. Will not be visiting ever again!

Good service pricing good on the other hand the grill cook has a habit of making you wait for no apparent reason before he cooks your food. On a prior visit I was told to come back in 15 minutes because he was going to eat his lunch. Who in the restaurant business eats lunch during the lunch rush. I... More

This Chinese restaurant goes above and beyond with their selection of food on the buffet. The seafood is simply out of this world. It's a very busy place any day of the week because people love coming there. They have a great family atmosphere and very welcoming staff. You will never be disappointed when you go in there to eat.... More

We visited here twice during the last few weeks and it is still great. We have been coming here since they opened. We love their chicken and broccoli. Service is always fast and efficient. Would highly recommend.

For our past three visits, the staff had begun closing the restaurant at least 2 hours before the advertised closing. We normally enjoy the grill especially, but for these past few visits, it was closed upon our arrival. Staff were already eating from the buffet, even with customers still at tables. The service was mediocre. However, the most frustrating is... More

All the inherent issues with buffets, but this one was better than a lot of them. We went Sunday at 1 PM and the place was very full...a sign that the locals like it. The decor was bettt wer than most, and the restaurant was clean. The hot and sour soup was very good. The sushi had a decent assortment,... More

My fiancé and I LOVE china king. The best hibachi grill and sushi in town. We went last night and were hurried through the meal at 830pm when their sign says they don't close until 1030p. The sushi is wonderful but last night they had closed the grill down when we arrived and started putting containers of food on tables... More

I am going to be really honest. White this is a great buffet I only gave 4 stars not because of them but because of me. I eat too much when I go. It's all very good with so many fabulous choices that I want to sample it all. Every product is very fresh. They attend every need. I have... More

We love this place. We have been coming here since it opened about 7 years ago. They have a great selection. The kids love their food. The managers are awesome. If you are in the area, definitely give this restaurant a try!
