“Best Chinese Buffet in Northern VA”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

While the China King is not a gourmet dining experience it does have some great items for the seeker.. I have been eating there since it took over from previous restaurants and I must say it has been a mainstay on my rotation and not necessarily for the Asian cuisine. I do recommend you visit the "Mongolian Grill" and go light on the noodles, if any at all. Lots of shrimp to be had any time of day for us shrimp lovers. Now I'm hungry from thinking about it. Finish with some of the best tasting soft serve vanilla ice cream around.....YUM

“Best Buffet in Woodbridge”
Reviewed June 7, 2010

Most of the reviews here are spot-on. With the exception of the sushi (never get sushi from a place that doesn't specialize in it or at the VERY least have a sushi chef). The king crab legs alone are worth going and they can't keep them stocked there so popular.

The people who frequent the place will....well, how can I put this.....they'll sometimes reinforce that "Hood-Bridge" reputation (sorry, just being honest) but that doesn't mean that they are a problem or that affects your dining experience. I just wanted to let you know.

“Got what we expected.... :)”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

One of the better Chinese Buffets we're ever been to. Food was very tasty. The selection is incredible. It's also affordable. For a family of 4, we paid 50 bucks. Definitely will be going back. Nice, clean atmosphere. Buffet was always kept full. They have fresh sushi and a Mongolian Grill. I'm not sure what the folks writing the "bad" reviews expected. A great place for the "average" pocketbook!

“Best location, price, parking, selection and service for a buffet”
Reviewed January 30, 2010

My family and I have been customers for over eight years and have always had pleasant experience. It is perfect for young families with messy yet well-behaved children.

Over the past eight years, none of us have ever experienced food poisoning or indigestion after dining there.

The staff pays close attention to your needs and quickly learns your preferences.

A piping hot pot of tea is always complimentary, promptly and warmly served.

Endless selection and variety of dishes to pile on your plate.

“Great Chinese BUFFET value”
Reviewed January 27, 2010

Buffet and value being the operative words. Sure there are much better Chinese restaurants in the DC area, but if you are hungry and on a budget China King can't be beat. It would be worth it for just the sushi alone. Made to order grill service, and a huge selection of food (that may not be perfect because it is served in steam trays), it's a buffet people. The decor isn't much to look at but once again that's not why you would come here. Dinner for around $12 that offers steam crab legs, great sushi, fresh raw oysters, soups, dim sum all with fast friendly service. What's wrong about that?
