King Buffet set to open next week in Chen’s location

The owners of Chow King in Dothan have bought out Chen’s Garden in Andalusia and are renovating it to become King Buffet.

King Buffet started renovations on the local building on Jan. 1, and owner Joana Wu said that they hope to be open by Jan. 29.

“We hope to be open next Tuesday,” Wu said. “We have been here working really hard and getting everything ready.”

Wu said that several people have already been calling the restaurant asking about their food and their hours.

“It is crazy how people are already calling,” Wu said. “They are calling the restaurant in Dothan as well asking about the Andalusia location.”

The restaurant is coming to Andalusia because the owners are looking to expand.

“We are originally in Dothan,” Wu said. “But there it is called Chow King. People really do like Chinese food, so we want to be able to spread a little further out, which is why we chose Andalusia.”

King Buffet will showcase food from Asia, Japan and America.

Wu said that they are still hiring for every position.

“We are still short on every position,” Wu said. “We need cooks, servers, and hostesses.”

The owners of King Buffet are originally from China, but they have lived all around the south of the United States.

“We are all Chinese, but we have lived all over,” Wu said. “We have lived in Mississippi, Georgia and now Alabama.”

The hours for King Buffet will be 10:30 a.m., until 9:30 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
