The Khan is an Asian-fusion buffet restaurant highlighting the essence of Korean cuisine with a twist. It brings together Asian cooking styles that blends with the kiwi culture. The Mongolian style grill sits in the heart of the restaurant with new additions like steamboat. Our meats and seafood range varies beyond other buffets and that's what makes us stand apart. Give your pallets a taste of our freshly cooked food, created by yourself and we guarantee you'll be coming around for seconds.
