“Cleanest Buffett Restaurant with Fresh Food”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

Love this place, no matter what time of day I come for a meal place is clean and food is fresh. A little pricey though. I paid $20.00 for my dinner meal last week, they had an increase in price. However it is all you can eat.

“GREAT buffet!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food, unless it's in a buffet-style. But this had SOOOO much more!! Besides the traditional (LOTS!) Chinese food, they also have crab legs, oysters on the half shell, several kinds of sushi, a salad bar, fruit bar & dessert bar. Everything is VERY fresh & the waitstaff is exceedingly good! Don't miss this when visiting Lakeland!!

“Good food, but too expensive”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The place is nice, the fish when you come in are lovely, but i guss they add scenery to your bill. To overprcied for your ordinary family to go out and enjoy without worrying about the bill.

“Best Chinese buffet in Lakeland.”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Want to eat until you are stuffed? Go to Ling's in Lakeland, their variety is amazing, their food delicious, my son swears by their sushi bar - and he spent 11 years in Alaska.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Lings as a Chinese buffet is above average in both price and food quality. The crab legs on Friday are done well and the sushi bar is a small but really decent selection. We sat a party of 8 and spent less than $200 including alcohol. All of the food is fresh and constantly being refilled on the buffet. The flavors are good without too much salt in the prep. The shelled seafood is abundant on the cold bar and do not have a fishy smell. They also make some of the best kimchi I have had at a restaurant that wasn't Korean. If you have a group with varied food tastes or acceptance then this is a good spot. They even pull off American carb and fries fare well so the kids will like it. They have some of the best fried chicken in the area according to the kids. Lol
