When you make shopping on this very big mall, I guess Great Dong Fang is a good address to eat.They have an open buffet which is quite satisfactory. The price is very reasonable. And also, if you want to try something different and are afraid of Chinese cuisine, this will be a great chance to try from everything on the... More

Since we don't have much for Chinese food in Antalya, I always look forward to eating at Great Dong Fang's Chinese buffet. The price is now 23 TL but for the range and amount of food available, it is still a bargain. I personally enjoy the sweet and sour chicken and kung po chicken. Check it out if you're hungry...

Even though we ordered two bottles of 35 Lira wine, they charged us for 45 Lira for each bottle and the waiter said "we were out of the wines that you ordered, so we brought the more expensive ones". When we asked "why nobody makes any explanation?" they said "we don't know". My husband and I were shocked. We'll never... More

Heard about it from a friend before going to Istanbul, and the day we arrived, we headed straight to Cevahir mall and up to the last floor. Not a big place, but a decent place for a good cheap meal, full of flavor. good to try when you get tired of the normal barbecue food you find everywhere...

I have eaten at this buffet a couple of times now and plan to go back. The price is 18 TL which another reviewer has already mentioned. The first time I went, the fried rice was very good and the 2nd time only so so. I think the price, combined with the fact that it is quite easy to find... More

One of the best restaurants in Istanbul, for 18 TL (9$) you get chinese food open buffet. Drinks are extra, staff are nice and friendly, food quality is very good. If you love Chinese food I would highly recommend this restaurant

Average buffet by international standards of the "eat as much as you like" genre, however the grilled meat dumplings on the buffet are excellent. Ordered the crispy duck from extensive menu but it was very dissapointing. If the same effort that went into the home made dumplings was applied to the rest of the menu this could be both a... More

Wow. a 15TL all-you can eat buffet (drinks are extra, but priced normally). That is a bargain enough in Istanbul, but the food is so GOOD, which is what makes this special. A beautifully-cooked assortment of Asian dishes, some salad, rice, noodles etc, and it really is no limits, go back as many times as you want. Superb
