Old Town Buffet to reopen with new name and concept

WICHITA — After less than two months in business, Old Town Buffet is closed, but it will reopen with a new name and concept soon.

The restaurant was in the former HomeTown Buffet and King’s Buffet space at 6160 E. Central.

Manager Hong Zhang says the new restaurant will be a Chinese and Japanese buffet since the people running the restaurant are Asian.

He says when it comes to Asians running American-style restaurants, like he used to, "a lot of customers say they don't like that."

Zhang says there wasn't a chance to remodel the restaurant before Old Town Buffet opened, so he's doing that now.

There's not a new name yet, but there will be before the restaurant reopens in late August or early September.
