Chinese dishes, buffet, and sushi.
I heard about this place a month or so ago & have been back a couple of times. They have a really nice variety on the buffet, including some stuff you don't see too often elsewhere...frog legs, devilled crab served in the shell...duck! OK, the duck's kinda dry, but what can you expect from a $7.00 buffet? Anyway, I was pretty impressed. Definitely a good value & the food's been good & fresh every time I've gone. As far as the service...I mean, it's a Chinese buffet! Enough said!
if you go to a buffet, and the food looks bad. walk out!
Do not eat at the Jin Shan Buffet. My husband and I ate there for dinner on August 13th and you could tell just by looking at the food on the buffet that it had been sitting there under heat lamps since at least the noon hour. Nevertheless, we filled up our plates anyways. When we sat down to eat our meal, NOTHING was good. All the chicken was dry, the brocolli was mushy, the beef was very tough, and the rice was almost gooey-like. It was all so bad, we left eating only soup. When we went up to pay for our meal, we complained to the lady at the pay counter, assuming she was the manager, and she didn't even apologize for our bad experience. As we were trying to tell her everything that was wrong, she took my cash and walked away. She couldn't even look at us...must have been because she knew everything I was saying was true. She wouldn't even give us a receipt. This was the most HORRIBLE dining experience I have EVER had, and will never eat there again. I was so infuriated with the food and the customer service that I had to post a comment to warn other customers what they could be expecting if you choose to eat there.
Once of our favorite buffets for several reasons. Of course you can order off the menu but we prefer, always, to try the buffet which features well prepared and tasty Chinese, Japanese and Sushi and more. This price is right to dive into the buffet and start with the hot and sour (great tasting with sourness to it) or egg drop soup (not bad either with a little extra flavor). The buffet selection is enormous and my kids in particular like going here when I come to Lawrence to meet them (they are living in New York City). The sushi is well prepared and fresh ( you can watch as they make it. Different kinds, set out, many types but I particularly like the fried sushi which I think is the best as it very unusual and crunchy plus I life the flavor. Little soy sauce and some green "wasabi" condiment and you are good to go. My kids love sushi and they introduced me to sushi. I know of no other place to get sushi reasonably priced, well made and fresh. Here is where I come if I am in Lawrence and want sushi. I mean for the price why would I go anyplace and then after your sushi "fix" there is so much more. else. They have unusual dishes like good roasted chicken or duck, nice and moist Asian salmon, several types of crab dishes and mussels. The crunchy and meaty chicken wings are great. The fried noodles and Chinese rice are good too. The tried and true broccoli and beef, is always good as well as many other Chinese dishes (chicken, beef, pork, seafood, vegetable). I really like the flavor and the "spin" that their chefs here put on even the common dishes. There are also frog legs, mussels, shrimp of different kinds (boiled, in shell, steamed, in combination dishes) and much more. You have to come here to believe the kinds it offers and all consistently excellent and piping hot. There is also ice cream dessert, puddings and more to finish off your meals. The staff is courteous and polite. It might be a little out of your way ( couple miles from the main drags in Lawrence but its on the way coming in or going out to Kansas City on Highway 10) but it is worth it at a very reasonable price for lunch or dinner. When I am stormchasing and come back through Lawrence from Topeka, I usually stop here too. So wether you are chasing, riding around Lawrence and have never tried this place, you are really missing out! For sushi, the Asian fare, the price, the tastes and different types of dishes from the unusual too, you can't beat it.
The service of the only old lady in the restaurant is so bad!!!!!
I have to say that the service of the old lady is so bad.
This place is awesome. It is so good and the prices are so low. I don't know how they do it.
I may not be a sushi aficionado, but damn, I like the sushi at Jin Shan. For a buffet, the vibe and service are as good as it gets. Value? Well, you can't beat less-than-$7 for fresh sushi. As for the traditional Chinese food buffet variety, even it is better than what I've had at other places in Lawrence.
It's one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. It has sushi and plenty of it and even if you don't like it, there is a delicious chinese buffet. FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's the best Chinese food in Lawrence. Nothing can beat Jin Shan Buffet.There are many varieties of food and those are very delicious.King Buffet Sucks! ! !trust me,So this(Jin Shan) is the best place to eat Chinese. I paid only $14.25 with tax for TWO people.
I THOUGHT THIS PLACE WAS GREAT ITS THE BEST WE HAVE IN TOWN..HECK MY PARENTS EAT OUT AROUND KANSAS AND THEY FOUND THAT THIS BUFFET IS THE BEST FOR CHINESE..AND THEY EAT IN KC AND ETC ...SO IF U DONT LIKE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE AN STOP COMPLAINING!!!
THIS IS A VERY NICE PLACE TO EAT. VERY CLEAN AND VERY FRIENDLY. THERE IS A WIDE VARIETY OF GOOD FOOD.
GIVE IT A TRY!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe I just had a bad experience, but I got some food from the buffet and I would rather have eaten canned Chinese food. It was not good, and the place reminded me of a dining hall at a retirement home.
P.S. Write more reviews so that people can't post fake 10/10 reviews on the website.
The Jin Shan Buffet has great food and good service. It's located on K10 on the east edge of town, but it's definitely worth the trip. They have many really excellent seafood specialities, so if you like fish, shrimp, crawfish, and crab, this is the place to go. The sushi is fresh and good, too. Try the almond cookies for dessert!
