Not a bad place, food was OK, just a little pricey and a little limited on the buffet/Mongolian grill. I went specifically for the grill, so the rest would have just been a bonus. Again, it's not bad, just not quite what I was hoping for. I'm used to a big more variety of meat and sauces on the mongolian... More

My partner and I arrived at this restaurant 30 minutes before closing time on a weeknight but were allowed to stay almost 45 minutes. We were able to eat what we wanted and to enjoy it although it would have been better if we had arrived somewhat earlier. The buffet offered the usual Asian fare plus Mongolian fare. Everything seemed... More

As expected the Buffet King in Capital Plaza provided the variety of food from noodles, rice and honey glaze chicken to pizza, Mac and cheese and jello. I tool a group of employees out to lunch and the bill was reasonable for 5 people, it was a little over $50, but everyone left full. From what I could tell the... More

The best part about this place is the Mongolian Grill. I really enjoyed choosing from almost fresh ingredients they had available. The only reason why I say almost fresh, is because the meats were frozen. It tasted good though. It was pretty clean however the ventilation was sub-standard giving off a "not so airy" feel. Didn't feel quite clean because... More

After reading the reviews my family decided to give this place a try since my granddaughter loves Chinese food. There was plenty of food but here is the kicker... very expensive for what you get and the food is not even mediocre. I literally cut the roof of my mouth when biting into crab Rangoon so bad that it would... More

I have never been here in the evenings, so will have to say that at lunch there is a mix of working folks, families, and those in need of Chinese. There is a large variety of foods served including sushi, fruit, Mexican dishes, ice cream, desserts, salads and Chinese. It is rather odd watching a table where some are eating... More

We like this place and often take out of town guests here. It is a great buffet for the price. If you go during typical lunch and dinner hours, and if you have a large group, then be prepared to wait on a table. If it is a small party of 4 or less then it shouldn't be an issue.... More

The tables were clean, buffet was okay, nothing over the top. We came here last Friday dinner so they had crab legs. They were a little bit on the salty side but we still ate a lot. The other food was average asian buffet food. However, the sushi bar was better than most other buffett sushi. The mongolian grill is... More

Great selection of many different Chinese dishes. Discount for senior citizens. Boiled shrimp is tops. Highly recommend!
