Reviews of Asian King Buffet
Concerned_Citizen posted on 03/03/2014
Let me start by giving you some of my background: I have nearly 7 years experience in restaurant management for 4 different eateries, three of which are national chains. As such, I took classes in food safety and sanitation. I rained kitchen staff and front of the house staff. And as a hard rule, I would NEVER serve anything to anyone that I would not eat myself.<br />
Asian King Buffet - Springfield MO.<br />
Food - Absolutely horrible, terrible, downright NASTY. Inedible. Gross.<br />
I doubt any of the "chicken" items were rally chicken!<br />
It was mystery meat in mystery breading, cooked thrice in the filthiest oil you can imagine. The only flavor any item had was brunt oil taste. Yuck!<br />
Hoping to salvage an otherwise indescribably horrible "meal", I tried their chocolate pudding. It was worse than the entrée items on the buffet. Really!. One small taste and I was literally gagging. Absolutely horrible. So bad, eight large breath-savers wintergreen mints could not reduce the nasty after-taste. When I got home, I gargled with Listerine until my mouth was numb, and still could not defeat nor mask the horrid taste, When the numbness wore off, I could still taste the nasty filthy old dirty burnt oil taste that was the main flavor of every item there. I actually think they may use the old oil to mix the pudding - seriously. Atrocious is not a strong enough word to describe it.<br />
Cleanliness: Poor. C- ... probable health risk.<br />
Service staff: Rude, slow, barely speak enough English to pass. Won't look you in the eye, probably because they know they are serving crap. And not one employee there was eating any of the restaurant's food offerings.<br />
Summary: Poor quality "food", poorly prepared, served in a germ-infested environment with rude wait staff.<br />
You have been warned. Do not risk your health nor waste your money at this place.<br />
