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.

Great sushi. Visiting my daughter for her birthday and she wanted sushi. We looked at several places and decided that this was the place to go. We sat at the sushi bar and loved watching them prepare everything. The surf and turf roll was a very unique experience. It had shrimp tempura and covered with beef medallions torched with a...

The food is becoming more and more bland. It might as well be slopped in a trough. Same "gravy" on everything, be it beef, chicken, or shrimp.

Went for lunch and everyone seemed to be doing the buffet. The server was very nice and informative. After looking at the buffet, the server seemed surprised I requested a menu. There were just the average buffet items which were almost out. I ordered the Kung Po instead and some Hot and Sour Soup. The soup was excellent (I was... More
