Their buffet is a good deal, but as someone else noted it's not particularly spicy. If you want some spice, the hot and sour soup is your best bet. It's reliable, affordable, and convenient. I've only eaten from the buffet (not ordered from the menu).

The buffet is a very good value but, like the Fiesta Grand any items that should be spicy lack flavor due to local taste. The food is normally fresh and replenished regularly. For a small buffet the selection is nice. The service is good as well. Nice place to go with a group if you are on a budget.

The staff at King Chef are very courteous and nice. The food there is hit and miss but the customer service is what brings us back.

I got take-out General Tso's chicken with fried rice and an egg roll. The General Tso's didn't taste right...and it wasn't spicy at all. It was just a general brown sauce with a couple pieces of broccoli tucked in.

I wouldn't choose to eat here, better off with fast food. The food had no taste and not sure what we were eating. Very few selections on the buffet.

Food is always consistent, excellent service and you are treated very nice. There is always a full hot bar full of food to eat from and if you don't like their desserts, then you can always have some of the different types of ice cream.
