When the Royal Buffet first opened, I had a few excellent meals, but once in a while the service was lacking. It's a buffet, so I didn't expect too much in the way of service, nevertheless, I didn't get back there for a few years. I went recently and had a very good meal. The decor is nice--typical for a...

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch. We like the variety of hot food they serve. I got baked fish and green beans, fruit salad, and crab salad.

I have been to this place several times and have found the two hostess staff to be the most unfriendly and rude people anywhere. It's always the same. My wife and I were there for lunch time on Sunday 12/4/2016. The only reason we tolerate the service is because the hot and sour soup is the best anywhere, otherwise the... More

When you first walk in you expect to see a happy hostess or award winning acting yet last night the hostess looked like it was her day off and they called her in. I watched to see if it was only our interaction but it wasn't. She did the same thing to everyone who she sat. She was about 10... More

We generally do not stop at buffets but we thought we'd try this one just to be different. There was really nothing exceptional or nothing horrible it was just your average Chinese buffet. The service was good and things were kept fresh as one could expect for a buffet. So if you're into buffets this one is probably right up... More

My last review was in 2013. I must admit. Its gotten worse. I only went back because my out of town daughter wanted to go there because when she was living in Findlay it was decent. Here we go. Saturday night crab legs. Where are the legs. Never came out once with them. Even though you saw the butter and... More

I have been here multiple times over the years since Hong Kong buffet closed and the service here has certainly declined with each visit. There used to be this really nice lady that worked here and I'd always tip. Now it seems like some of the waitresses are just being rude. They want to follow you as you leave to... More

This is a distance from I-75 and I doubt anyone but locals would come here as a result, but with extra time and in the mood for this sort of dining experience, we gave it a try after finding out about it while driving through the flatlands of northwestern Ohio. We wish we hadn't. We arrived at 7:30 PM--over 2... More

This place used to be great. Now it's awful. The food sits out all day, it's not as clean and the staff seems miserable. The waitresses were confronting customers about their tips. We saw it with 3 different customers. We won't be returning.
