Atmosphere: There are several small dining areas situated around the restaurant, made a little more private with the creative use of live plants. The dining areas all surround the centrally-located meat and vegetable buffets. All seating is limited to tables, but there is at least one dining space that allows for tables to be pushed together for larger parties.
Within the restaurant there is a small bar area to accommodate patrons who may have to wait for a table on a busy night, or for those who would like to try one of the specialty tropical drinks or wines.
Menu: The concept of Khan’s is one that allows diners to customize their own stir-fry dishes. Patrons choose from a buffet containing a variety of sliced frozen meats (beef, chicken, pork, lamb, shrimp and imitation crab). You take a bowl, fill it with the meats and noodles of your choosing, and then move down to the vegetable line where you can choose from a large selection of fresh vegetables to be used in your custom stir-fry.
After filling your bowl with your preferred meats and vegetables, you then add sauces to flavor your stir-fry, such as Garlic Sauce, Cooking Wine, House Sauce, Dragon Sauce, Teriyaki, Curry, Lobster Sauce. There is a sign over the sauce bar that suggests which sauces and flavorings you should choose, depending on how spicy you would like it. After you have your bowl filled with meats, noodle, vegetables and sauces, you take it to the Barbeque Area, where your stir-fry is cooked right in front of you.
Price guide: $15 All-You-Can-Eat Buffet or $10 for a single plate
What I ordered: Everyone receives an appetizer as part of the cost of the buffet. There is Hot and Sour Soup, a Fried Wonton, and a tender BBQ Marinated Chicken Wing.
My first plate consisted of beef, thin noodles, peppers, zucchini, broccoli, onion, carrot, and pineapple. I love spicy and flavorful food, so I used a ton of the garlic sauce, fresh cilantro, several scoops of the dragon Sauce, cooking wine, house sauce and teriyaki. It was delicious!! I have been to Khan’s several times and have finally figured out the amount and combination of sauces that I like the best. One thing i have noticed is that it seems safe to go a little overboard with the sauces, because a lot of the moisture is cooked out and the noodles also absorb a lot of sauce. Despite how much spicy Dragon Sauce I added, it wasn’t as hot as I like it. The best part is that if you don’t care for your stir-fry, you can always go back to the Buffet line and start over with a new combination!
Sticky Buns are also served with dinner, a dough-like pastry filled with a buttery cinnamon/sugar sauce. I did not try this because I was already too full from the other good stuff!
Service: Our server was very friendly and prompt, kept drinks refilled and removed dirty plates in a very timely fashion. It can get extremely busy on weekend evenings, so it is a good idea to call-ahead for a reservation, especially if you plan to have a party larger than four.
Overall Impression: If you enjoy stir-fry, Khan’s is your place! The endless trips to the buffet for only $15 is a great deal.
