Did I say nasty? Kings Buffet is one of the most unkept restaurants in Danville. Booths need cleaning and repaired (tipped vinyl), the flooring needs replaced, etc. Why eat at Kings when Cracker Barrell and several better options are nearby. There is a reason the buffet at Ki GS OS $4.99. Warning---you get what you pay for.

Certainly the best Chinese buffet in the area, and worth going to for a meal. It isn't great, but it does offer a small Sushi bar, a limited Mongolian/Hibachi grill and a fairly large prepared food selection.

My dad took us here. It's one of his regular stops. They had the best butterfly shrimp. Excellent service too! We will be back.

Used Trip Advisor reviews to ok the visit,otherwise we would not have gone in based on exterior and parking lot. The food was standard buffet. The service was fair. The bathrooms both male and female we're beyond nasty. Another customer spoke to a server about the condition of the restrooms but no employees made an effort to go clean or... More

Better than average Chinese food. The actual resturant is roomy and the buffet is large. I would (and have) recommend it.

The service and food were great. My one huge concern was that a woman had her dog with her in the restaurant. I know this was not a service dog, so I am pretty sure it is a big health code violation.

The people and variety are wonderful. Food is kept filled and at proper temps. They also serve beer and wine again. I love the shrimp, eggrolls, sushi, fish and dumplings. Mom eats pizza, bread, lots if chicken, onions and fried rice. Sis loves the noodles; and hubby the hot and sour soup.

Nothing too exciting or special here, but on the other hand, there was enough variety, kept fresh and hot. I have eaten here on a couple of occasions now and would go back.

Very good assortment of dishes on a typical Chinese buffett, prepared and presented. Need to assure the "one trip per plate" rule is enforced a little better, especially with young children.
