Kings Island has a popular lunch buffet and this rating only applies to it. I was disappointed that it did not include wonton soup--a personal favorite--but did have egg drop and hot and sour. The latter tasted kind of oily. The number of selections available is limited and they are not labelled, but they are quite tasty. For a Chinese... More

Old style, New York style Chinese food. The food is always hot and spicy and fresh. Excellent menu. Many choices. Including sushi! Best Asian in town.

King's Island is a wonderful Asian restaurant. Their food is delicious and the portions are large. I ordered the shrimp lo mein and it was delicious. The service is good even on a busy night (we went Christmas Eve). It is a family friendly restaurant that serves delicious food!

My husband and I had the lunch buffet. The food was delicious, a lot of variety and the food on the buffet was constantly changed out. Lots of seating, reasonably priced and great service. Drinks were consistently refilled which is important to me and the servers were very friendly.

I have been coming to this restaurant for 35 years and have never been disappointed. Whether you decide to go for the lunch buffet or for dinner the service is always top notch and the food is out of this world delicious. You must try if you like Chinese.

Both the buffet and the menu are good choices here, as is the sushi bar. A staple in Lynchburg culture, Kings Island is a great restaurant for birthdays, events, and holidays.
