Topekans are welcoming back an old favorite in Chinese cuisine this month.

Hong Kong Buffet in North Topeka is currently in its sixth year of business. After being closed for remodeling during the past three and a half months, the business is open again.

More food and more space are some of the most prominent changes in the restaurant.

“We now have room for 28 items on the hot bar and 20 in the cold bar,” said Wei Lin, the owner’s son and employee of Hong Kong Buffet.

The restaurant has added many new items to the buffet and plans to add these items to the menu soon, as well.

The Hong Kong Buffet offers an inviting and distinguished atmosphere.

“We only had half of this space before,” said Lin. “All new tables and chairs are also a main addition.”

With these new changes, there are still things that haven’t changed at Hong Kong Buffet.  They’re still open seven days a week and business hours have remained the same, from 11 a.m. to 10 pm. The lunch buffet is offered daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $6.29.  The dinner buffet runs from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for $7.99.

Patrons are still able to get carryout from the buffet table, as well.  For a set price, they’re able to get whatever they can fit into the to-go box provided.  For those planning on getting something off the menu that’s already available on the buffet, they could save a couple bucks by getting it in the to-go box.

While they currently do not offer a student discount, they do offer a half price buffet for 4 to 10-year-olds, while children younger than 4 years old eat free.
