“Great selection, poor quality ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Chow king has a great selection of food, offering uncommon Chinese buffet items such as frog legs, ribs, steak, mash potatoes, fried chicken, and mac and cheese. Unfortunately in my experiences with buffets, quantify sacrifices quality. Several of the food options are bland. Also, they don't serve beer.

“Typical Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

This place is about as good as you can get in Oxford if you want the traditional chinese buffet lunch. Absolutely nothing to write home about, food is okay. If you want quick, this is the place to go. Otherwise, find a restaurant on the square like City Grocery, Ajax Diner, or Boure.

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a nice restaurant. There are many nice foods, especially every Friday night there are crayfish. I love the hot crayfish. The environment is comfortable and it is near our university. I strong recommend it and you will love it too.

“Stay Away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The food here was average, at best. Most of it was hot or warm, but not much of it looked very appetizing. Most dishes were some type of Asian dish, but not all. The service was the worst service I have ever had at a buffet. Which is saying something. Buffets don't usually require a lot of service from the wait staff. But no one ever came to our table once we were seated. At one point, we got up to refill our plates and someone chased after us to be sure we weren't leaving without paying the bill, which of course had not come to our table. There are many better places to eat in Oxford. Try anywhere but here.

“Big ole buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Suprisingly large buffet offering, 4 steam tables, salad and dessert bar. The usual Sino offerings, with peel-n-eat shrimp, and great shucked oysters AND sushi + hosimaki rolls. Great value for your buck.
Clean and tidy seating areas !
