I have been coming to this restaurant for 35 years and have never been disappointed. Whether you decide to go for the lunch buffet or for dinner the service is always top notch and the food is out of this world delicious. You must try if you like Chinese.

Both the buffet and the menu are good choices here, as is the sushi bar. A staple in Lynchburg culture, Kings Island is a great restaurant for birthdays, events, and holidays.

Great sushi. Visiting my daughter for her birthday and she wanted sushi. We looked at several places and decided that this was the place to go. We sat at the sushi bar and loved watching them prepare everything. The surf and turf roll was a very unique experience. It had shrimp tempura and covered with beef medallions torched with a...

The food is becoming more and more bland. It might as well be slopped in a trough. Same "gravy" on everything, be it beef, chicken, or shrimp.

Went for lunch and everyone seemed to be doing the buffet. The server was very nice and informative. After looking at the buffet, the server seemed surprised I requested a menu. There were just the average buffet items which were almost out. I ordered the Kung Po instead and some Hot and Sour Soup. The soup was excellent (I was... More

We were visiting the area and wanting some good Asian food. Stumbled across reviews for this place and decided to try it. We were encouraged by the packed parking lot, but fortunate that the large seating area allowed our party of 7 to be seated quickly. The menu is extensive and a little overwhelming, but we all managed to get... More

We're from Westchester County, NY where there are innumerable good Chinese restaurants. Kings Island comes closest to those we are used to. Barbecued ribs are wonderful as is the pork/beef lo mean.

I ate here with my mom for lunch. I ordered a sizzling dish. They can customize the sauce and make without msg. Staff are friendly and fast. The buffet has a variety of meat dishes as well as some vegetarian. Egg rolls and soups are included. The price was just over $22.00. Been in business for more than 30 years... More
