This place needs a deep cleaning. Overheard the owner complaining about how expensive cleaning he carpets was to someone. Heck, rent a steam cleaner and do it yourself. Bathroom was nasty! I've had Chinese Buffets that were good. Not this place. Keep driving!

The food (buffet) was relatively good with many options to choose from. Staff were friendly but hard to understand. The cash only was the biggest issue causing some customer issues. The place could also do with a deep cleaning.

A small buffet with good quality if you like Chinese you'll like King Buffet. The egg drop soup was good enough for two bowls.

Just don't. I will leave you with a brief glimpse of my experience: Lukewarm seafood....flat, warm soda... Dirty silverware...glasses that smelled like bleach... Vomiting even before getting the ridiculously high bill.... Appalled at service and shocked at how rude management was.... Four days of getting to know the toilet in our hotel room....five of us.... So, unless you want to... More

This restaurant serves Buffet style or you can order off the menu. It is reasonably priced and food is of average quality. You can eat all you want which is usually more than I need. Good place to stop for a quick meal at a good price.

This place is terrible. Frozen stuffs dropped directly from the bags. Food is floating in molten ice. The rare fruits are rotten. I would not recommend the place to my worst enemy.

A simple place with a pretty decent Chinese buffet. Very reasonable and tasty! The decor is a bit dated and the detracts a little from the experience. but it is clean, inexpensive and good food.

The price is great for the quality and unlimited quantity. If you like chicken, white fish, or mushrooms, this is a great buffet. You can fix a salad if you want or slurp an oyster on the half shell.

Lil to pricy for limited buffet. Hopefully they can improve their selection. Server was nice. Nice and spacey seating. Just needs better food display and preparation.
