“Not an Oriental Buffet any more...”
Review of Kowloon Bay - CLOSED

Kowloon Bay
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This location has undergone a number of changes over the past few years. Recently it has been one "oriental buffet" after another, different names, mostly the same food. We dropped in to check out the latest "version". As it happened, this was a "soft" opening week, so to be fair, everything was in disarray so your results may vary. First of all, this is no longer your usual oriental buffet as seen coast to coast with the exact same dishes. Now, this is a sit-down table service restaurant. But with the same food as found at most "Chinese Restaurants". We ordered the appetizer platter and individual dishes. As everything including the severs was new, the cook came out to check our order. Think it was the owner's wife. The owner dropped by and I asked about the change from the buffet thing, he said "no one wants that any more". A few tables were full, we assume mostly friends and people doing business with the restaurant and probably other restaurant owners from the area. Everything was "ok", but for what we spent I think the owner may have it wrong, because the oriental buffet was exactly what we wanted. As an aside, I noticed that the old buffet stations are still there behind a make-shift wall.
