We frequent this place. The food is delicious even if it is buffet! They have a good variety and everyone is always more than satisfied. They are reasonably priced, friendly and clean. My only suggestion would be different desserts. I don't care for their options. They have a wide variety, but nothing that is outstanding. I avoid the ice cream... More

I visited last night. Whenever I want good Chinese food, this is where I come because there is not many inexpensive options for good food in Berea. Their food is wonderful and I absolutely love their fried rice.

There seems to be a King Buffet in every big city but this one is worth a stop. Food is fresh and they keep the dishes full with better quality food than most buffets. Make sure to try the grill. Tastes great!

Had lunch here with a business associate that used to live in Richmond. He said the place hadn't changed in the 12 years since he moved away. Food was average for a Chinese buffet but price was very reasonable.

Since its a buffet dont expect top notch chinese food. It's fairly good, never been sick from it, but a lot of meat tends to get over cooked. But the prices are fair. If you're a student at EKU you get a discount if you show your student ID.

Its a greatest restaurant I ever visit in the whole journey of my USA traveling. it is really a all in one place for Asian food, although it is more into the chinnese cuisine. you could fine almost everything, from rice, chicken to pork in every taste. You could even ask them to cook for you, according to your own... More

This is my favorite chinese place! They have the best wontons! And large variety on the buffet. The Mongolian grill is pretty good too.

I used to eat here a lot but not so much lately. There is a wide selection but it always looks and tastes like it has been warmed over and maybe a lot.

Food seems old and warmed over more than once. I have been there several times at the request of others to meet there. There is a lot of it and this is a college town so that's a draw I suppose. Not one I would choose to go to.

This King Buffet is located within a reasonable distance of I-75. The location looks small from the outside, however, once inside the tables & booths are separated in a respectful manner. It contains an Mongolian grill. The buffet selections are generous. No soft serve ice cream (my favorite) but hand dipped is available. There is a large fish pond at... More
