“Eat as much as you like Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We visited on a Saturday night at 7.30p.m. and it was fairly busy but there was an odd spare table. We chose the buffet which was visible in the waiting area. The price is £11 for adults and £6 for children. The choice was excellent with everything you would expect from a buffet, two choices of soup, pancakes, ribs, wontons spring rolls etc, followed by approximately a dozen main courses with a choice of rice noodles and chips. Plenty of choice for puddings as well but not sure why anyone would want to consider a pudding at an 'all you can eat' chinese buffet. The food is as you would expect for a buffet, not a la carte but certainly very tasty and regularly being replaced so food is hot and fresh. If you want choice and have a big appetite this place is ideal. Very friendly staff.

“Believe the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I recently ate at Kongs with my wife and 9 month old baby and we had a fantastic meal. The staff were very welcoming and catered for our needs with a small baby.
I have not seen so many options on a Chinese buffet before and all the food we have was great. I have been to Hong Kong myself and found the food to be of the same high quality that I enjoyed in Hong Kong.
Will be back soon!

“The new taste of Chinese in Skipton”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We have visited this establishment a couple of times, and are sad to say that both occasions disappointed us. The food, although varied, was tepid, and not very exciting. The Staff, apart from the Owner, were lacklustre and not very welcoming. Sadly, this is the type of place Skipton needs, however it's a shame that Kong's have failed to make the mark. Although, not as convenient, we will continue to travel to Leeds to enjoy a Chinese Buffet!

“Great food, great host, great night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

Visited kongs on new years eve and was highly impressed with every aspect of the experience. Had the buffet and the food was lovely as always, because it was a special occasion we had extra dishes brought fresh from the kitchen which were amazing. We then all headed upstairs in the restaurant for games and kareoke which was great. The owner and his staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us and we all had a fantastic night.

“Dine like a King for next to nothing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

I'm not a King, but as soon as you walk through the doors here you're treated like one and you dine like one. The food is spectacular and excellent value. There is something for everyone and the staff went out of their way for my princess as she's veggie. Great food, great service, an excellent array of beers and a fantastic experience, on a budget. We went 3 times in a week - says it all!
