I've been to the large Chinese buffets that are more Vegas style with 20 stations and include everything from spaghetti to mac and cheese. By the time you get to your table your food is cold. King's is the opposite! It's small and more limited...More

2 people spent about $35 including tax and tip for 2 buffets and non alcoholic beverages. We tried at least 12 small portions of different foods on 3 trips to the buffet bars. At no time was the food close to being hot. First trip...More

Love this little restaurant. My very favorite is the chicken in peanut sauce. This is a very nice clean Chinese buffet. The staff is friendly and the food is great. If you like Chinese food I would recommend this restaurant very highly.

I was able to find something for everyone at the buffet over the weekend. When you have picky kids this is great. They were accommodating of large groups and worked well with kids. The place was clean and the food was good.

Small but adequately sized buffet. Wait staff was friendly. Food was okay but nothing was a standout. Sushi, even by buffet standards (vs a sushi restaurant), was not good. Probably will not return because although it filled us up, there has to be better options.

Don't go! Find another restaurant in Palmetto, like Hideko for oriental food. Even Popi's would be a better choice, and those are cheap eats but good.

This is a small stand alone place. Am always greeted with a friendly smile and sit in the same booth. If you are looking for unique or original oriental food, this is not the place. But over the many times I have been there the...More
