We went to King Buffet today for my niece's 6th birthday. She loves mussels and this is usually a place that has good ones and being a buffet, obviously she could have as many as she wanted. We went for lunch and apparently mussels are only on the dinner buffet; due to the special occasion we asked if she could... More

My husband and I visited the Kings Buffet in Lawrence Kansas. Much of the food was dried out and hard. If I wanted to chew on a piece of wood I would have stayed at home and gnawed on a tree limb. The food was also cold. My husband ordered coffee and it was served to him in a broken... More

More variety here than at any other buffet! Fill your plate and eat or select from the ready to grill buffet and have the chef prepare it for you. Will go back.

This is a place my aunt likes and we are just visiting. This place had hot fresh food of a great variety. I sampled a small piece of about 5 different types of chickens and went back for orange and teriyaki. We all had favorites egg roll, hot and sour soup, crab puffs, but as a whole it was average....

Ate at this restaurant a second time. When I walked in, the employees were busy on their cell phones, but was finally seated. Food was hot. Service was average. Fairly wide variety of food and the buffet was well stocked. Drink glass stayed full. This is still not a bad place to eat, but I would rate the food as... More

King Buffet has been in Lawrence for a long time and continues to serve great food at a fair price. The buffet lines are kept clean and full of hot (or cold) food. The sushi is very good and their consistency is great. Keep on doing a good job King Buffet.. we will be back!!

Had lunch at this restaurant. The service was pretty good. Drink glass stayed full. The buffet was well stocked and the food was hot. The food just had an average taste to it, nothing really outstanding. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad place to eat, just nothing exceptional.

Not real hip on buffets, but this one is consistently good. Food is fresh, hot and not over cooked, as is case on some buffets. Clean and inviting area. Easy access. Been going for years and keep going back again and again. Great value for buck when it comes to a Chinese Buffet!
