First food review ever posted... Ate there at 5:00 p.m., the food was edible, but not good. Absolutely not gourmet as their sign says. Salmon tasted old and was sitting in an excess of poor quality oil. General Tso's chicken was soggy and I was told that they prefer to serve it that way. Battered shrimp was oily and no... More

The restaurant was very clean and the service was excellent! The variety was good but I thought the sauces were a little sweet for most of the meat sauces. The kids really loved the egg rolls and chicken teriyaki. I liked the chicken in peanut sauce over the mei fun noodles and I thought the sesame balls were very fresh.... More

As locals, this is one of our regular stops. This is family owned, the staff is always polite, pleasant and efficient. The quality of the food is reliably very good. As with most Asian food restaurants, some offerings are "americanized," potato skins and fried doughnuts. But, overall, good food. The coconut shrimp is pretty great and many of the standard...

We went there 2 times and each time whatever food they did have filled was OK. I have definitely had worse but they never filled the food enough and the trays were always empty. It's also not a big selection of food either and the place was always empty when we went on regularly busy nights. If you do go... More

As buffets go this is pretty good. Six different food stations, one being salad items and another desserts. Two soups and several appetizers. Chicken, beef, pork, vegetarian and one seafood offerings. White and fried rice plus two noodles (one rice for GF folks). Meats are sliced very thinly but I prefer that for tenderness. Service was fine with young man... More

Generally, I'm not a fan of Chinese buffets because the food all tastes pretty much the same, it's often lukewarm, and definitely has the texture of having sat around for far too long. At China King, the food is great! Piping hot, fresh, flavorful, and the veggies are always crisp, not soggy. I'm partial to their chicken dishes and their... More

Had a very good lunch here and will definitely go back. Cleanliness, good food and good food options make this one of the better Chinese buffets. Great value at $7.99. That currently includes a beverage but signs all over say Oct 1 beverages will be 99 cents additional. Six buffets islands; the last 2 are mostly sweets and there are... More

The place is tucked behind the OLIVE GARDEN on JUAN TABO near the freeway, easy to find , and well worth it. Fresh food with lots of choices, includes rice, and noodles, with seafood. Also comes with Ice cream bar, witch is really great, nice quit place, good service.

The selection is somewhat limited and consists of mostly chicken dishes, but it is good and reasonably priced. Will be going back.
