The meals are always to perfection! The Sushi is fresh and is delicious. The meals are reasonably priced and the staff is warm and welcoming. We always enjoy our visits to Kings Island and in fact have been going there for over 35 years!

I love Chinese food, and was so disappointed in the takeout order I got from King's Island. the egg rolls were tough and flavorless, and the Kang Pao Shrimp was in a weird thick sweetish sauce; strangest take on Kang Pao ever. The Sesame Chicken was described as "prepared in sesame and hot garlic sauce" but it wasn't hot, even... More

We were there on a very busy Sat night. The service was slow, but each dish was perfect. The chicken and mushroom soup for 2 was excellent! The shrimp with lobster sauce was traditional and perfect. The prices were very reasonable. No wonder it was crowded! We will be back!

Being from Philly, my husband and I are food snobs....we always feel "we" have the best food anywhere, any type. I was surprised to find out that there is actually amazing Chinese food in Lynchburg. The service was prompt and courteous. The food was outstanding and the prices reasonable, especially for the amount of food. My husband had the sesame... More

We heard this was one of the best restaurants in Lynchburg from our family when we went there to visit and they really did have the best sushi ever! Their other dishes tasted great as well when I had a taste of what other people ordered. I also learned that the chef there makes just about everything from SCRATCH including... More

On our stop in Lynchburg my wife and daughter were in the mood for sushi. Being a NY'er in VA. , I was apprehensive about finding a place that met their expectations but Kings Island did that and more. The sushi was fresh without having alot of rice . The choices were creative and plentiful. The wait staff was helpful... More

Come hungry. Really good Chinese food in really hefty portions. No one in our party left hungry, that's for sure.

John-John and his crew are absolutely fabulous. His Ring of Fire is scrumptious as are his other specials. Made the hot ones I think just for me. The Chinese food is really good and the staff very nice but the sushi is the best.

This was my second visit to King's Island in about 6 months. I rated it a little higher than last time because the service was more attentive and competent. Our party of five was served quickly and correctly. Everyone thought their food was delicious. Unless you're absolutely famished, be prepared to have leftovers. There are plenty of vegetarian and non-meat... More

The salmon roll is so fresh and the oyama roll is amazingly good every-single-time. We tried the QQ Udon tonight; Fried fresh noodles with chicken and veggies it was really good but I think the Double Twist is still my fav.- that or the rainbow, or maybe the tropical delight...and all of the sushi rolls ;) (the ones I have...
