The variety is very good with something for everyone. They have sushi, cold shrimp, oysters, salads, many Chinese selections, grill what you want upon request, seafood as well as deserts. The only complaint is that some of the hot foods were not hot - possibly the fuel cans went out. They have enough people running around and refilling food that... More

What else could they serve?? This has to be the very best Buffet around..bar none. The food is hot and very tasty. Pretty clean for all that moves around there dining. Service...you know how it is. Try this place and enjoy the best a Buffet can be.

I've been going to this buffet for well over ten years - most times solo, but in the past year a group of co-workers and I meet here once a month. They offer coupons on a regular basis, so one rarely has to pay full price. The buffet is stocked well and there usually is something for everybody available. I... More

Until a couple years ago this was a very good place. Since then it has been going downhill and I am not sure that it has bottomed out. Cold food, extremely salty. The sushi that was almost restaurant quality is not anymore. Little fish and lots of cheap material. No lobster any more in the weekends, they substituted with Chicken... More

We needed a place to eat without a wait and ended up here. A good variety of tasty food, New China Buffet met our needs. The hibachi was open and the food was well prepared. The waitstaff is very friendly and helpful.

While there is a lot of variety here the quality is not as high as it should be. The chicken is always dried out and impossible to swallow. I had dumplings that were not hot or warm at all it made them kind of gross. They have a bunch of "best of" signs when you first walk in but none... More

I have been eating here for years and have enjoyed the friendly and accommodating staff. However, last week's visit was very disappointing. Much of the food was tepid, overcooked or bland; and some appeared as if it had been sitting out too long. The sub par food quality coupled with the price increase has me questioning whether or not to... More

My grandmother LOVES chinese food. She sometimes says she actually has slanty eyes. So I have frequented many, if not all of the various Chinese places in the Lehigh Valley. The New China Buffet is consistently one of the best buffets around. The food is good, hot, and almost always fresh ( I tend to give buffets a little more... More

lots of different Chinese food from General Tso chicken to seafood shrimp wrapped in bacon to crab legs. reasonable prices 2 people were under 30 dollars. Weekends they offer a whole lobster for 4.99 more with your meal. Always eat to much when I visit.
