I always regret coming here. The food typically has always been sitting around for too long and is dry and stale. The Sushi selection is poor and they rarely restock what there is. The deserts are HORRIBLE. I had a puff pastry that was hard...as a rock and the cream tastes like it was from a week ago. They’ve downgraded their ice cream to just iced fruit bars. They suggest tips including the tax on the bill. And lastly, every time I've been I get stomach aches and diarrhea later. The only reason I went this time was for a friend. You’re far better off going to Pacific Buffet in Kennesaw or Sushi Village nearby for all you can eat.More

Where to start. The food is very and I mean very substandard. Food was cold, poorly seasoned, Not a meal you could enjoy. Staff speak limited English and show no interest in their guest's whatsoever. Do your self a favor and spend your money at...any number of good Smyrna restaurants. David C.More

My family of 4 had an unpleasant time when we came in for dinner, when we were given the card back after paying, the waitress asked for a tip. We are not the type to not leave any gratitude but if being asked then its...not right. Between all we left $10 and she was not happy asked for more. We were not the only table she told this too. Food is amazing but because of this i will not be coming back! Also hosts are terrible!!More

Back in June 2019 I found this place from the internet. It was a Sunday when I went in to have lunch. It was busy and found it to have a good selection of foods, I noticed quite of few patrons made a bee line...to getting a bowl of Pho made to order after they’ve gathered the food items they wanted, the cook would grill or boil your items and would pour a hot flavorful broth into your bowl and of course at your table there is a selection of condiments like hot sauce, soy sauce, etc to add to your bowl, even if you wanted to toss in a fried chicken leg, more vegetables or more garnish after soup was made you can, I often did filling my belly with a happy smile and satisfaction. At that time the broths were flavorful and had my taste buds dancing the Macarena. When a new cook arrived after my third or fourth visit the broth lost its flavor letting me know the new guy did not know how to make a good broth nor was he taught in my assumption. The sushi selection began to get unappealing also, just because it seemed to be too much was being made and they were using it again. Anyway I’ve found Chow King Grill & Buffet to have been an exciting meal time when I went the first couple times...Weekends and dinner I believe they would serve up fried half baby crabs seasoned with pepper and salt this item was a go to for lots of patrons and happened to be very delicious. Anyway 4 stars out of 5 I’ll give them because its was a wow factor when I was a new patron. Happy Dining Folks...More

Reasonably priced buffet lunch on Cobb Parkway near Windy Hill. Large facility, large menu (I'm guessing 200 items?), usual range for an Asian buffet with sushi, Chinese and other Asian dishes, American food, desserts...Good, not fabulous, but good food, good value, worth a stop if...you are nearby...More

Just don't. Got to the restaurant at 11:30 (they open at 11). A party of 7 and not ONE of us had hot food - it was cold. All of it. We told the manager and he said "well, you came too early, you need...to come later for it to be hotter?" No apology, no nothing. Seriously?? If it needs to be hotter, then why don't they turn on the boilers earlier? This is the second time I have had food that isn't up to temperature & is the last time I will be here.More

My wife and I have come several times. This time was dinner, which was a little more expensive and had a few extra things, but other times have been lunch. There is a lot of good seafood, a hibachi grill, and dessert section with several...icecream and cake varieties. The options below are not possible to answer yes or no. This is basically a Chinese restaurant, but has a hibachi which is Japanese although I wouldn't call it a Japanese restaurant, and it has lots of good seafood but it's not really a seafood restaurant.More

You know, there is only one problem with a Chinese buffet. It can be good or bad, and it all depends on selection and turnover. Not enough turnover, and the food is cold or dry. So my review is mixed, but overall I liked it....The selection was excellent. They had a very large dessert bar and one table just for sushi, and both Chinese and American foods. More than the average buffet. Also the restaurant was large and could seat a large number of people. But there was some food that was not hot, when it should have been. And some containers should have been refilled though they may have been in the process of making more.More

Chow King is a Chinese buffet with really large choice of all types of food including soups, salads, main entrees, and desserts. The place is also big. Though there is a very wide variety of food the quality is just OK. Nothing exciting. But if...you want to quickly eat Chinese food, and you are hungry you would find this place satisfactory. Service was good. Parking ample and free.More
