Don't ever go to this buffet restaurant. You’re going to lose your appetite. The plates are oily, dirty and the food is cold not appetizing to eat. 🤢🤮

I was the only non-Asian person when I was here. This said something good to me. I filled 3 plates with small amounts of many items. Some of the flavors were really good. Lots of vegetarian options tasted the best. Okay sushi and variety of...fish.Yes it is outdated but it is clean.More

It was popular with locals. The buffett was huge and had many selections. For a buffett it was good for our last nigh in SF to wind down before we left the next day.

Mid range in quality, or rather temperature. None of my choices were more than warm. The own choice BBQ was of course, being cooked while you wait. LOTS of seafood and other stuff, at least 6 buffets. And sweets and soft serve ice cream. Not...bad for $20 all you can eat.More

The inside of the restaurant was dated, and the buffet was expensive, however the selection of types of food, as well as the quantity of food makes it palatable. The buffet had crab legs (there were people that were loading up plates, and plates of...the legs, there is a reason why it is $16/meal), shrimp, a Bar-B-Q station, as well as a soup station. The options were many, and although I did not have anything to write home about, the food was decent and selection large.More

A very nice variety of Seafood and vegetables. They have a sushi section which can be improved. The grill chef in the back will cook what you select from the different vegetables and meats offered along with noodles as well. Large selection of fresh fruits,...cakes and cookies. They also have a frosty machine and marshmallows you can dip in chocolate flowing tower.More

It is now named King Sun Buffet. I generally don’t care for Chinese buffets because the food sits too long in steam tables. But most things were fairly fresh and there was a huge variety. Spicy fish fillets were only mildly spicy but very good....Sharks Fin soup was excellent. Mongolian pork also good. Definitely above average for its type.More

Just okay. Was at a conference at the South San Francisco Convention Center and it was conveniently located. Large restaurant, minimal table service, okay food.

We were staying at the CitiGarden Hotel (room 312) just north of the San Francisco Airport, and we were ready for dinner just after we checked in. When it's just a one-night stay we find it convenient to eat in the hotel restaurant so went...into the buffet, now called the King Sun Buffet. As the only restaurant in the hotel, it just did not appeal to us as we looked at the decor, the offerings, and the overall atmosphere. Sad to say, but we did not stay and we went elsewhere for dinner.More

good size selection at a good price. Lots of fish to choose from. (Friday evening) We'd probably go back if we stay in the area again.

That’s hard to answer. Different people have different tastes. And possibly have different experiences depending on how long food has sat I. The buffet when they experienced it.
