“Typical Chinese buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

As Chinese buffets go, this one is pretty typical. Perhaps slightly better than some. They have the usual selection of items, including very good shu mai, extrememly tasty clams and mussels and a nice selection of chicken and pork dishes. They are also one of the few buffets that uses only shrimp in their shrimp with lobster sauce. Many of the buffets add surimi, artificial crab, to the dish, which I do not like at all. The problem with the food is that they are not consistant in their preparation. Last night the roast duck was so overcooked that it could not be eaten. Where is the quality control. As for the service, I really don't have any complaints. Some of the servers are better than others. Last night we had one who was good. She kept the table clean and was prompt with the check. My main problem with this restaurant is that they have too many tables and cram in too many people at a time. To sum up, my wife and I eat here once in a while but there are many other places that we prefer over it.

“Great Selection & Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Love this Buffet. It's is a treat when I make the trip from two towns away. Well worth the 25 minute ride. As a former New Yorker I am very picky about the food I eat. They have a delicious chicken with peanut sauce that I can't seem to find anywhere else. Except when I lived in Oceanside NY. The assortment of dishes cannot be beat. Chicken wings are superb as is the spare ribs. Everything I've tried has been very satisfying. Yes I tried the buffet across the street, and I along with a friend got very sick from spoiled shrimp. The service at Kingdom is great. They come to pick up the plates as soon as you are done & ready for another trip up. I bring my parents who are in their 90's and we are accommodated with the table nearest the buffet. At Kingdom Buffet there is such a large selection that everyone will be able to find just what they like.

“Don't waste you time or $.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This experience, was terrible. The food was way over cooked. The dishes were dirty. It took my husband 3 cups before he could find a clean enough one for his soup. Mustard stains and gravy down the sides of the cups. The waitress was sneezing and not covering her face, nor washing her hands. yukky

“Another So-So All You Can Eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you've eaten at most All-You-Can-Eat places, this is hardly any different. Average food, average service, average selection, average taste, average... well, just plain average. Your best bet is to go across the street to Ginza Buffet, where EVERYTHING is above average.

While Kingdom does have a fairly good food selection, and has a custom order hibachi-style grill, probably the best food is the shrimp, oysters, and other raw bar selections. And some of the sushi is ok, but it doesn't seem to move very fast, so the raw fish sushi & sashimi was not as fresh as it should be. Once again, Ginza is far and away much better.

Also, the waitresses did not speak much English, the floor carpet was not all that clean (in my opinion), the tables are tightly spaced, and, did I mention, the food was average.

All in all, not a bad place, just not a place we will probably ever return to, but hey - check it out for yourself, you might like it!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Very clean. An expansive, attractive buffet with all the foods you expect plus salads and Amercian food. You are never rushed. and can eat until you drop. The food is delicious.
