I've been coming here for years. Love the cooking and variety. I even tip the cook! Wide selection of entrees (they advertise 100, I think is true). Shrimp is at the top of my list. The comment about a grill and BBQ must have been talking about "Taste of Chine" which is down the street a few blocks. There is... More

I eat here regularly, and the the food is always good and the staff friendly and attentive. The restaurant not only has a buffet, but a small mongolian BBQ if you wish to create your own dishes.

This buffet has many traditional Chinese dishes, but the taste & quality are well below other such buffets in the Springs. Some of the dishes were greasy and the buffet is not kept well-stocked. Also, unlike other buffets, one must pay BEFORE dining.

Over the past few years my wife and I have stopped in at the Great China Buffett and had a pleasant eating experience, however our last dining experience at this restaurant on April 18, 2015 was very poor. Food was cold to lukewarm, lacked flavor, and had overcooked chicken, beef, fish and you in some cases, needed to sharpen your... More

I love Chinese food and tried this buffet. The food may have originally been Chinese food several days before but it tasted horrible. The place was gloomy. The price way too high. Save yourself the trouble...never eat at this buffet.

One of the worst Chinese places that I've ever eaten at. I do not recommend it. Most of the food tasted like it had been sitting out for too long.

I have recently been to this place for dinner. The price per person was $12.99. The number of dishes available were not limited but the quality of the food was barely OK. I do not want to re-visit here if I have any other choice in Colorado Springs.

We had just arrived in town the evening before and I had a taste for a Chinese buffet. I was drawn to this restaurant because it advertised sushi on the menu. Although the restaurant had a decent selection, pretty standard for a chinese buffet, including a grill and sushi bar, that appeared to be made fresh. The sushi was horrible,... More

Just ate at the great china buffet at 628 S Academy and it was absolutely THE worst chinese buffet I ever ate at. The food was cold, had no flavor and there was no attention paid as to the customers to see if everything was ok or not. I travel all over the US for work and have tried chinese... More
