Buffet and grill is basically good. Lunch for 2 is $15. Nothing exceptional. Service is sufficient, The staff doesn't speak English very well.

Food was hot and fresh with a very good variety of choices. The restaurant was clean but the restroom could've used a little work. All in all I was pleased

We frequent this place. The food is delicious even if it is buffet! They have a good variety and everyone is always more than satisfied. They are reasonably priced, friendly and clean. My only suggestion would be different desserts. I don't care for their options. They have a wide variety, but nothing that is outstanding. I avoid the ice cream... More

I visited last night. Whenever I want good Chinese food, this is where I come because there is not many inexpensive options for good food in Berea. Their food is wonderful and I absolutely love their fried rice.

There seems to be a King Buffet in every big city but this one is worth a stop. Food is fresh and they keep the dishes full with better quality food than most buffets. Make sure to try the grill. Tastes great!

Had lunch here with a business associate that used to live in Richmond. He said the place hadn't changed in the 12 years since he moved away. Food was average for a Chinese buffet but price was very reasonable.

Since its a buffet dont expect top notch chinese food. It's fairly good, never been sick from it, but a lot of meat tends to get over cooked. But the prices are fair. If you're a student at EKU you get a discount if you show your student ID.

Its a greatest restaurant I ever visit in the whole journey of my USA traveling. it is really a all in one place for Asian food, although it is more into the chinnese cuisine. you could fine almost everything, from rice, chicken to pork in every taste. You could even ask them to cook for you, according to your own... More

This is my favorite chinese place! They have the best wontons! And large variety on the buffet. The Mongolian grill is pretty good too.

I used to eat here a lot but not so much lately. There is a wide selection but it always looks and tastes like it has been warmed over and maybe a lot.
