This was a first time going in a buffet restaurant since the covenant 19 has hit us. AAA King buffet wasn't Covent 19 protected by people and their buffet food The rules and regulations is six people at a table and there was more at...a table plus it's supposed to be table no table table no table 6 ft distance and there was no 6 ft distance at all it boosts is supposed to be plastic set up and it wasn't and it wasn't table no table table no table for one thing they have a sign if you get up wear mask there are so many people getting up and getting drinks not wearing their masks getting food not wearing their mask children running around coming to people's tables they're not forcing the mask law and their restaurants this is a big covent 19 to catch in this AAA king buffet restaurant. I'll tell you I'll never go back into this buffet because they're not basically being safe of the covid-19 and I do not want covid-19 at all beware and be safe if you go and eat at the AAA King buffet restaurant because it's not safe I don't know how they stay open at the way that they're progressing in the Covent rulesMore

Decent, home-cooked Chinese food. Mongolian grill here is great. Drinks are free. Friendly staff. Convenient for JBLM!

Have been to this buffet 4X. Consistently good. Food is hot and not overdone which is a problem with some Asian buffets. Decent variety with some non-Asian choices - which I have not tried. Sushi is fresh and good - does not have any with...raw fish if that bothers you. Mongolian BBQ is available but I have not tried it. Some fairly authentic dishes though most Asian food does not do well on steam tables. Bathrooms are VERY CLEAN which is also unusual in many Asian buffets. Overall, we go back because this place serves good food at a good price and is clean.More

Disgusting bathrooms, cold food, & cashier has a very nasty attitude. Completely unsatisfied with my visit and will not be going back.

Went soon after they opened around 11:30. Foods were cold and not up to my standards. My mom and I both agreed we will not go back.

If you like greasy chinese/ american/sushi... you'll LOVE this place. All you can eat for a subpar price and a subpar meal. My husband loves it.

Not a bad place to eat and the food varieties are acceptable. My family liked it and we will return in the future.

The food is a bit greasy BUT not all! Pick what you like! I stayed away from the seafood but enjoyed the other meats, rice noodles, veggies and ice cream! Price for 6 of us was $101 and we were able to eat comfortable at...our own pace! Servers picked up our empty plates without asking! Overall had a great time with my familyMore

Title says it all. I've been to better buffers for the price, but this was pretty good. Crab and teppan yakki are the best things they offer. A lot of everthing else was dry and/or older.

Our relatives treated us to lunch - thought it was around $10 per person. Call them at 253-983-8833 to check current rates.

It opens at 10:30 a.m. We were there around noon - they do keep it very clean and refresh food dishes frequently. Our cousin had coupons so it was less than $10/person. They may also offer Senior or Military discounts... More
