“Now called Oriental Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Lots of food. Some good but some not so good. Salmon was dry and roast beef tough. Good stuff, butter shrimp and fried shrimp. Steamed clams were very good. There was a lot to chose from so you won't go away hungry.

“Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2013

Went here for lunch last week. Have passed by this restuarant for YEARS and was really surprised at the overall quality one I decided to give it a try. Very clean restaurant, great selection for lunch and a great price ($6.95). The food was very fresh & there was a good selection. Very attentive employees. I will definately be returning, maybe this time for dinner & will see what menu items are different.

“Great food at A1 Buffet King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

My sister and I went to A1 recently and enjoyed a fantastic lunch buffet, the foods on the buffet were well cooked, hot and tasty. I especially loved all the fresh fruit offered such as strawberries, grapes, watermelon and cantaloupe.

When we were first seated we were given a booth which was within arm's length to a table with two adults and two children, it felt crowded and noisy especially when the place was nearly empty so we moved ourselves to another booth. I have eaten here before and they tend to always seat people this way, on top of others!

There are vast choices, even for lunch, lots of chicken and shrimp dishes, lovely looking salmon (I don't care for salmon though) and wonderful seafood puffs that are so delicious.

Many Chinese buffets only serve hard ice cream but A1 has the choice of hard or soft ice cream and even have topping available.

The meal was so reasonable, will return when I am in Ogdensburg area again.
