In years past I ate here all the time. After some life changes, not so much. I actually had a craving for this place, hence this visit. It's only buffet, but as buffet goes, it's pretty darn good. Food is warm when it ought to...be, and cold when it ought to be. Nothing is ever dried out. Most everything has more flavor than you might expect. The Mongolian grille is a welcome addition, since I can only eat so much Genera Tso's chicken. There was shrimp on the grill, so I built a whole plate full of shrimp and garlic, and let the chef stir-fry it to completion. Awesome! For those who must, there is soft-serve ice-milk, and a full compliment of pastries for dessert. There are brand name sodas and other beverages available at extra cost. You can get food to go, priced by the pound. The only requirement is that you get at least two ingredients, PS the bathrooms are well maintained, and there is ample parking.More

Food was either bad or marginal. Lots of options but not a single good option. Very expensive for a bad buffet. Almost $11 per person. Plus $2 for pop that was flat. Terrible music blaring. Good service though and it was fairly clean. Will never...come backMore

My step-daughter's absolute favorite food is anything Asian, so nothing makes her happier than King Buffet. We've been for birthday get-togethers with a big group, and just with our family, and the service is always fast and friendly. With a buffet, it's always nice to...have attentive service to remove dishes when you finish, and refill drinks, and the staff at King Buffet do a very good job. The buffet is LARGE. They have many options, like a sushi spread, a Mongolian Barbeque (build your own) area with a grill, and then the rows and rows of Chinese dishes. Of course, each person has their favorites and particular tastes, but there is a lot of variety, so I feel like there would something for everyone. A few American dishes, too, if that's more your style. Servers bring out hot, fresh items as they are needed, and they are attentive that as well. This is a standard Chinese buffet, providing lots of food for a good value.More

Huge selection of food. Something for everyone. If you are a large number of people with a variety of tastes this place will work. Even western style food . The food was average. Lots of deep fried battered foods with sweet coverings. Service was good.

My wife and I go here on a fairly regular basis. My wife is from Singapore and enjoys the Chinese style cuisine. Every time we come here, it is clean, the food is well maintained and hot and the staff have always been excellent. It...may not be a 4 star restaurant, however the quality exceeds standard buffet quality I feel. The price is good also, which makes for an even better visit.More

We went to King Buffet today for my niece's 6th birthday. She loves mussels and this is usually a place that has good ones and being a buffet, obviously she could have as many as she wanted. We went for lunch and apparently mussels are...only on the dinner buffet; due to the special occasion we asked if she could have some and offered to pay extra, the staff quickly obliged. They didn't just bring 'some' they brought a large plate stacked with over 20 mussels! They didn't charge any extra for this special accommodation either! That kindness would have been enough but we also had an amazing waiter; drinks never went empty, dirty plates were cleared before you came back from the buffet and our checks were split accurately and he took care of them at the table. We had 8 people and an infant--the carrier holder was at the table before we even made it to the table! Really exceptional service!More

My husband and I visited the Kings Buffet in Lawrence Kansas. Much of the food was dried out and hard. If I wanted to chew on a piece of wood I would have stayed at home and gnawed on a tree limb. The food was...also cold. My husband ordered coffee and it was served to him in a broken cup. When I brought this to the servers attention, he nodded and smiled, but did bring a different cup. When we went to pay for this miserable meal, the clerk screamed in my face at one of her co-workers half way across the room in their language, I tried to speak with the clerk about our experience she did not have time for us. We will not be dining at this establishment ever again.More

More variety here than at any other buffet! Fill your plate and eat or select from the ready to grill buffet and have the chef prepare it for you. Will go back.
