I am a selective gourmet, and had very low expectations after reading the other reviews. We went here because the buffet setup is great if you have kids. (It keeps them busy for a while)

I was postively surprized by the selection and quality. Some of the items was basic, but we found many dishes including pepper chicken with muhsroom and kung pau chicken excellent. A small and good Dim Sum bar as well as good selection of fresh fruit for dessert.

All in all, great prices, everybody found their favorite food, and we had a good time. Highly recommended.

Pros: Great selection, good prices, good quality, fresh

Cons: Service (but what the hey, its a buffet)

Went here a couple of weeks ago and I still can't get the bad experience out of my head. The place smells like no other. Seriously! Waitresses just stood around. Waitress gave us our beverages and that's the last we seen of her. Poor service! Their food was by far the worst I've ever had. The small pieces of steak were uncooked, sushi didn't taste right, soup was bland, mushrooms were too salty, fruit was either too tart or too mushy because they were old. Chow mein could have been a lot better, fried rice was alright. Soda's were great. All deserts didn't taste good. I would not recommend this place. The food is not good and it's way over priced! King Buffet makes the Home Town Buffet a 5 star!!!

Pros: Parking

Cons: Food & service

The outside seems pretty nicely landscaped now, although it's in a bit of a dumpy lot. But I didn't come here to look at the parking lot, I came here to eat a good buffet. And on that promise, King Buffet delivers.

There's a wide selection of Chinese and American foods. They have decent all you can eat steak, and the sushi is of average quality.

But when you get into the Chinese dishes, you'll find some really amazing eats. The mushroom chicken is incredible, with a slightly spicy kick, the baked seafood and spinach have baked cheese on top and are also delicious, and there's dozens of other delights as well. Dim sum is pretty good. They have stuffed mushrooms as well as many other seafood dishes, and the filet of sole is quite tasty.

For dessert, there's a wide selection, but I would recommend the cheese filled wontons and the fried Chinese rolls with sugar on them. Terrific!

The service was average - nothing great, but not unpleasant either. The atmosphere is decent and pleasant. The restaurant is clean for the most part, although on occasion they could do a better job washing the dishes.

I would rate this place a 4.5 out of 5 stars overall. There's no better Chinese buffet in San Jose that I've been to for the price ($8.65 for lunch), and the only comparable one I've seen is Super Buffet, which may be owned by the same person, since the food selection is very similar.

Go eat here!

I went to eat at King Buffet last night with my family. When we first walked in the restaurant, it had some funny smell to it, Then we went to our table and get our food. Most of the food there was not worth it for the price we paid. The steak wasn't even cooked. It was REALLY RARE in the inside. The Crab wasn't fresh so it tasted stinky and bad when you eat it. Chow mein doesn't even taste right. Their CORN was BROWN and burnt. Their soup tasted water down. Only thing that was good to eat there was the FRUITS. Plus the waitresses there are SLEEPY and can barely understand what they're asking you. We asked for 3 SODAS total...and she brought 3 SODAS and one kid drink so we had an extra drink on the table that was just sitting there. Also when my boyfriend was done with his soda, the waitress asked "NEED MORE COKE?" we said yes..then she just looked at the cup for a few seconds and walked away. And we never got our refill. SO my advice is NOT TO EAT HERE. You will be sorry you wasted your money on some nasty chinese food (Take this advice from a chinese/vietnamese person). If you want some good chinese buffet, go to CRAZY BUFFET on winchester, Super Buffet on Saratoga, or the best one everr...CHINA BUFFET in Fremont.

Pros: Fruit and ice cream was good

I don't know what king Buffet PJ went to but King Buffet is very clean, landscaped and very accessible with great parking. The food is always fresh, great selections from dim sum, chinese, grilled meats and sushi rolls to name few favorites. The price can't be beat ($7.99 to 15.99).

The restaurant has only been open a year and they have been working on the landscaping. You must have caught a bad day. I don't eat in the parking lot and everything inside is new. The service is very good. My only complaint is they resent you when you use their coupons, bday or discount. They offer a free meal for bday meals with id if you have two other guests.

I would not recommend this buffet. The facilities are dirty, the outside has weeds growing all over the place. The food selection was fine, but after seeing the filth my stomach was turned off.

PROS: good selection of foods
CONS: dirty

Kids love this place, food is always hot and tasty. They have a great selection for both adults and children. And then you get soft serve or a huge selection of desserts at the end.

Good service too.
