Their buffet is a good deal, but as someone else noted it's not particularly spicy. If you want some spice, the hot and sour soup is your best bet. It's reliable, affordable, and convenient. I've only eaten from the buffet (not ordered from the menu).

The staff at King Chef are very courteous and nice. The food there is hit and miss but the customer service is what brings us back.

I got take-out General Tso's chicken with fried rice and an egg roll. The General Tso's didn't taste right...and it wasn't spicy at all. It was just a general brown sauce with a couple pieces of broccoli tucked in.
