Appealing both to my 90 year old mother and my 8 year old granddaughter, this place was perfect for our girls' lunch out. Very fresh dishes, lots of variety, creative sushi--this is obviously a place where the owners have a lot of pride in their product. They went the extra mil to remind us we were leaving behind an umbrella. Wish it had a handicapped space in the front..

A great variety of food which is constantly kept fresh and hot.
For me, the problem is the floor service. There are not enough servers to take care of patrons' needs. Also it would be helpful to have more English speaking help.

I've seen Asian King recommended on Facebook several times so my husband and I tried it.

Not impressed. All they had was the same old, cold, dried out food every other Chinese place has. Nothing I had on my plate was even warm, much less hot. They had some imitation crab that was so old it was like crunchy rubber.

Maybe people are referring to the sushi when they rave about this place? I don't like it so I didn't try it.

The staff, 2 younger women and an older man were very unfriendly.

I'll continue my search for a good Chinese buffet because I didn't find it here.

Wasn't bad food. Had a little bit of everything. Their version of fried rice was undercooked. Rice was crunchy. Wished they would have had General TSOS but that's okay. Lots of sushi (didn't try). Soups, fruit , dessert and most of the usual Chinese food. I wouldn't go back but if you are craving Chinese it will do.
