Located in the heart of Long Beach, King Buffet serves up a plethora of Asian food options for hungry customers. Coming in at a mere $6.99 per person, this is one of the best deals you can get for a lunch meal. After parking in the garage behind the restaurant that provides two hours of free parking, we walked around the corner to get into the restaurant. We were quickly greeted and brought to our table for our drink order. We opted for complimentary water, and we were on our way to the buffet. The buffet had a wide range of items from various Chinese stir fried dishes, Mongolian BBQ, desserts, fruit, salad, sushi, and soft serve ice cream. Some of the more valuable dishes included meatballs, whole fish, shrimp, and beef. I made three trips to the buffet line before I got stuffed and headed for ice cream. The ice cream is more on the icier frozen side, which was not as appetizing, but still tasty. Food quality is mediocre, but you get what you pay for. Each of the buffet trays stayed pretty full as there were plenty of customers, and the restaurant refilled items quickly. A server even came by to check on us and offer refills. After you finish eating, a server brings by the check. If you are in the downtown Long Beach area and are feeling very hungry, then you can definitely get a value-filled fill up at King Buffet. If you are looking for quality flavorful food, then you will not find that here, but you are definitely getting what you pay for.
