It's a buffet or carry out restaurant. Not the best nor the worst Chinese I've ever had. Not a place I would really recommend, but it's not terrible.

While there are lots of choices on the buffet. Most of the items on the buffet are not seasoned to taste as Chinese as other Chinese restaurants. The servers are very friendly and will gladly assist customers. They will help parents with children by carrying plates; and they will assist disabled customers with their plates.

I rated it average because I eat Chinese buffet everywhere I go and I have seen hundreds of places that compare exactly to this. The food is good and the staff is friendly. Meal was priced with drink after tax less than $12 during dinner hours. Less for lunch...

The wait staff are friendly and helpful. The food has little or no seasoning! There are plenty of choices on the buffet, most are clearly American--the rest are Americanized Chinese.

I've written glowing reviews of this place before, but today's lunch opened my eyes. As I was trolling the buffet, I noticed a long, black hair in one of the food trays, wrapping in and out of the food. I quietly motioned a for a server to come, and showed her the hair. Accidents happen, so I figured she would... More

My last review for this restaurant was three years ago. I've probably eaten there a couple of times each year since, so I figure it's time for an update. This place is about half the size of most Chinese restaurants you'll find in big city shopping centers, but Hazard is not a big city. Our daughter-in-law and I took my... More

When I want Chinese food with mood light, atmosphere, tablecloth and a menu, I eat at The Peiking Restaurant on Main Street. When I want Chinese takeout, I use the Panda Inn by the hospital. But when I want Chinese Buffet, China King is the place. Plenty of choices, friendly and attentive staff, and good prices. My only complaint is... More
