My husband and I are regulars here - at least twice a month. Their food is always fresh and the make-your-own stir fry is a wonderful addition that I've not see anywhere else. I love that they have sweet & sour sauce & spicy mustard available - those are perfect complements to their egg rolls. My favorite food here the orange chicken - perfectly sweet sauce over cruchy fried chicken. Hubby loves their sweet & sour chicken and always gets it first.

For families with picky children they also have several 'kid friendly' items on their buffet like chicken rings, mini corn dogs and fries. My son can always find something he likes to eat.

I would recommend Kirin to anybody.

From the nice people to the rich and tasty wonton soup to the buffet, you will not be disappointed. No MSG. Some of the best cooked vetagables you will get anywhere.
Try it, you will like it.

I can't believe I'm the first to rate this place, given how good it is. Now, it's not a menu-only, finer dining restaurant, but in the world of usual Asian buffet, it's the best we've had, hands down. We've since moved from Jonesboro and miss it so much... none of the Asian buffets in our new town come near it. Surprisingly, they're price is within a dollar of all the other local Asian buffets, though the value seems so much higher.

Lots of features set Kirin above their competitors. Firstly, the vegetables taste fresh and have a nice al dente crispness rather than overcooked mushiness as found on other buffets. They don't use MSG and they do use good oils in moderation, for better flavor and health value. They serve the usual recipes found on such buffets, but theirs have more flavor and are more interesting and distinct, making good use of seasonings and peppers rather than relying only on fried batter and gooey sweet cornstarch sauces. My favorite item on their bar is the coconut-walnut shrimp... it's sooo good! It has a touch of sweet, a touch of tanginess, a touch of nuttiness... it's a great recipe. Their teriyaki chicken on a stick is flavored really well, too.. better than most. Their sesame chicken has a neat flavour, with a touch of red chili in the sauce. They also put out those super buttery seafood casseroles, though those aren't homemade, they're still a nice treat. In addition the the buffet, and at no extra charge, they also offer a "make your own stirfry" bar, where you can choose your veggies and sauces and have the chefs fry it up for you in sight, or have it brought to your table if there's a wait. They keep a few sushi selections, though nothing fancy, they're kept covered and fresh, and include philadelphi roll with smoked salmon. They also keep good kimchee on their salad line.

Another neat feature is their section of bench booths with decorative loose pillows on wooden benches, on a raised platform with lower hanging lamps. These are fun and offer some atmosphere for small groups.

If you live in Jonesboro or are passing through, and what better Asian buffet... don't miss Kirin! They're on a main street, Caraway, near Corky's BBQ and just past Race St. coming away from ASU and the Indian mall also on Caraway. If coming from the new Target/Turtle Creek Mall, you can take Stadium to the left, then Race St. to the right, then a left on Caraway to find it within the block.
