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
