I've been going to Buffet King since I was very young and I must say the restaurant needs renovating as it is very old looking. The food isn't spectacular chinese food but it's still good and given the wide variety of food to chose from, I would say it's good value for your money.

For aporoximately 10 years, traditionally this was where i enjoyed my birthday each year. However no longer will i be there. The place needs renovating. A modern touch is required. Also the dry shrimp is not the same and the chinee style chicken. Lots if competition in close proximity. Time to upgrade..

The buffet is acceptable re: variety and the food, Chinese, is usually good. No shortage of food as the dishes are replenished often.

Horrid and outdated the decor and staff...the options available for the price was just utterly horrible ...took my sister to this establishment for her birthday and they had tomatoes and cabbage as an entire dish option. Just bad
