“Don't Bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Had a special for lunch (Pay for one, get the second at half price) Had to order non alcoholic drinks to get the special. Bill came out $7.00 more without the special. Manager couldn't care a less. Food was well below average. Service was awful and it was not clean. I will not be back.

“Valentine's Day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Used to really enjoy this buffet-varied, fresh, tasty.On Valentine's Day, at lunchtime, it was very busy. It appeared that there were not enough servers for the crowd which became only a real problem when it was time to settle the bill.Long wait! Also noticed the help did not keep on top of replenishing the buffet foods in a timely manner. Several items were almost empty before refilling.Hubby complained of the "soggy"shrimp. Didn't enjoy this visit as we have in the past.To be fair, not sure if this is a one time thing.

“Salmon and Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

The restaurant has a good reputation for the big Chinese buffets, so I was happy to try it out. They had various buffet lines composed of Chinese and western foods, a Sushi bar, a salad bar, breakfast nook, as well as a desert buffet; in other words a large variety of food. I focused on the seafood and was not disappointed. I tried many different kinds of seafood but the stand outs were the salmon, poached so it was moist. The Sushi was fresh and had a sea flavour to it. For desert I tried the Brulee cake and I found it to be flavourful and not too filling. The service was good and one server was very respectful so has ‘good face.’ A good buffet.

“Getting screwed new years day”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Upon checking the prices on the internet the holiday LUNCH prices seemed great. Got there with the family of four adults an 11 & 12 yr old and 3 yr old n 17 month old. Disnt see the small notice explaining they were charging DINNER prices for LUNCH prices. Had we had known thos we would have simply come for dinner as we didnt eat much only normal lunch portions. Management was rude n non helpful. Gave me the put up n shut up attitude. Said if I dont like it dont come back. I have since called 4 other kings buffets n NONE dis this to customers just this stoneycreek location. Queation is how cqn they get away with this????????
