Went for late lunch/ early dinner, was not busy and seated right away. Friendly staff. Standard buffet, but the rice and lo mein was pretty bland overall. No egg in fried rice and seemed like just a can of peas and carrots tossed in. Prob wont go back, too many choices in Lakeland.

Lings is our favorite place for sushi and frog legs. It is a buffet, but service is very good for refills and plate removal. Sushi is fresh. Evening buffet has frog legs and crab legs. I find that patrons can be greedy with the crab legs, filling plates to overflowing, leaving everyone else to wait in a line. Suggestion would be signage asking patrons to limit the amount they take at one time. Peel and eat shrimp and mussels are always plentiful. They used to have some of the best oysters on the half shell, but stopped carrying them more than a year ago. That was a disappointment. Food is very good and price is reasonable. They also have hibachi at dinner time, soups and soft serve ice cream.

Good food and selection. Dinner buffet price to much though. Get there before 3:30 on Saturday to get lunch price.

It has been a while since we have been to Lings. But I thought it would be okay to go have a nice meal. I was not happy with what I was seeing at the sushi bar. Avocado was discolored and most was not fresh looking. Also noted that no more crab legs on the evening buffet. I have been able to eat here safely without reaction. I was not so lucky this visit, msg and xanthan gum are my triggers. Sorry can't risk my health with risky food. Sad to see this.

Sometimes worry about Asian buffets! NOT this one! Fantastic selection of sushi, hibachi grill & hot tables with desert bar. Well dressed servers & very attentive. Costs alittle more than others but well worth it!
