We usually go for the lunch buffet because the price is more reasonable. The food is hot, it has your standard range of Chinese food, decent selection of desserts, and hand dipped ice cream. They replenish the buffet often and put out smaller amounts so that keeps the food fresh. The decorations are standard Midwestern Chinese buffet, with attractive chairs... More

The very first thing I would like to start when is the fish tank that you have no choice but to see because it's right in front of the door when you walk in. This Tank more times than not is so disgustingly filthy it automatically turns your appetite. I just can't quite figure out why the owner does not... More

I especially like that you can refill your drinks too. We'll be back and... More

Their buffet is a good deal, but as someone else noted it's not particularly spicy. If you want some spice, the hot and sour soup is your best bet. It's reliable, affordable, and convenient. I've only eaten from the buffet (not ordered from the menu).

The buffet is a very good value but, like the Fiesta Grand any items that should be spicy lack flavor due to local taste. The food is normally fresh and replenished regularly. For a small buffet the selection is nice. The service is good as well. Nice place to go with a group if you are on a budget.

The staff at King Chef are very courteous and nice. The food there is hit and miss but the customer service is what brings us back.

I got take-out General Tso's chicken with fried rice and an egg roll. The General Tso's didn't taste right...and it wasn't spicy at all. It was just a general brown sauce with a couple pieces of broccoli tucked in.
