    KING BUFFET: The best Chinese buffet restaurant in...

    by Confucius Updated Apr 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Chinese restaurant follows the trend of including an authentic Japanese sushi bar as as part of the buffet. The Chinese sushi chef prepares several plates of popular American sushi with mayonaisse and avocado ingredients and just one dish of traditional Japanese sushi with crab leg kamaboko, tamago sweet egg custard, and inarizushi (vinegared rice stuffed inside a pouch of teriyaki-seasoned deep-fried tofu). In fact he only prepares one each of the tamago and inarizushi, so I had to keep going back to get more. After my fourth trip to the sushi bar, the annoyed sushi chef decided to wait for me to leave the restaurant before making any more of the good stuff.
    There is also a huge salad bar with desserts and the buffet includes plenty of popular American items such as French Fries and chicken nuggets.
    The large restaurant seating area has two televisions tuned into different channels. I sat next to the one showing ESPN and enjoyed Sportscenter highlights with my General Tso's Chicken.

    Favorite Dish: I had four each of the tamago and inarizushi and about a dozen of the crab leg sushi. The buffet also has a delicious square vegetarian pastry that tastes like croissants stuffed with spinach. "Seafood Delight" gives you the opportunity to fish for fresh shrimp and squid while jealous customers stand by impatiently waiting for you to put down the tongs.
    (Can't they be content with the abundance of artificial crab legs?)

    For dessert I took a bowl and put banana pudding on one side and chocolate pudding on the other, then topped it with fresh bananas that are cut into fourths and drenched in strawberry sauce.

    You can always get a silo in your Indiana photos!
