There are a number of traditional chinese buffet selections, including offerings such as lo mein, sesame chicken, steamed dumplings , egg rolls and sugar donuts. There is also an ever fresh selection of a variety of sushi & sashimi on the sushi bar. In addition to the buffet selections, Asian King also offers a full menu featuring numerous chinese favorites, tempura and sushi.
