“Pretty good buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I'm not a buffet fan but decided to try it. Good variety of food well laid out. Price was reasonable. Good for groups.

“A frequent visitor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We are at the King's Buffet frequently - the food is generally good (except if its late afternoon before the dinner meal time - then the trays can be empty or the food cold). We have found we need to be there generally over the meal time (for lunch and after about 5pm to early evening to get the best selections and food that is hot.)

“Food...... OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

What made this visit so worthwhile is our server...Trevor. He was on top of things and you never had to ask for anything. The food on the other hand, could be hotter, fresher and tastier. Everything tasted very similar to one another.

“You almost get what you pay for....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have gone a few times and find when it is slow (during the week) the food sits around a while and much of it is not very fresh. Maybe they need to prepare smaller batches?
If you go on the weekend when it is busier and more expensive the food is fresher tasting.

Think of King's Buffet as a notch below Madarin but a bit cheaper...

“Decent food, worth a visit, though a bit overpriced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Good selection. Omelets made fresh for you if you come at lunch. I'd recommend trying it, and if you like it and plan on coming again a few times, get the VIP card.
