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.

It was our first time here since they moved from down south closer to the river on the same street. It definitely wasn't as good or as big a selection of food as before. Price was more than other places in Bradenton and selection far inferior. Wont go again unless we hear of a big change here

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 food has been consistent. They do have a fair selection of sushi, along with most... More

This restaurant is Chinese buffet, with added items like ice cream, snow crab, and some fruits. They never put out very much food at one time and the food is never hot. I stopped eating there all together

I've had less than desirable experiences at Chinese Buffet's, so I was apprehensive to say the least about trying Kings Buffet. But several of my friends (including a professional restaurant consultant) kept telling me it was good. So, the other day I went by myself for lunch. (By myself so my wife wouldn't get upset with me if I walked... More

If you are expecting a decent buffet, don't go there. This place merely offers poor quality food at cheap prices, which I guess appeals to some who are on a tight budget. But there are much better places to eat in Palmetto that offer much better food, for the same price or just a little more money.
