Not many Chinese buffets are around anymore and those that are, are not very good. This is a very good buffet with fresh food during peak hours. We have extra gone in the past later in the evening and the food wasn't replenished when empty or not fresh.

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant in the area. I am a picky eater and this place always has fresh food on the buffet. Very tasty, just a little high priced for the area.

I didn't deserve the third degree about every one that works there! I came to have a nice meal! I won't... More

Food was not bad, but rather typical. There was a lot to choose from. Salad bar, soups, shrimp, mussels, sushi bar, roast beef (but we could never catch any one there to carve it), two bars with Chinese dishes (sweet and sour chicken, General Tsos, broccoli beef, cashew chicken, etc... Also the usual AMerican dishes like mac and cheese. There... More

A step above your typical Chinese buffet, plenty of seating and lots of food choices. They keep the food coming. The biggest drawback is large American diners and their lack of table manners. Oh, and the place could be a tad cleaner. They run a lot of aforementioned large Americans through and it doesn't get cleaned vigilantly, it seems to... More

My husband and I ate at the Chinatown restaurant on a recent stay in Litchfield in October, 2015. This is probably one of the best Chinese buffets we've enjoyed. The service was great, the restaurant was very clean, the food was hot (not always the case in a buffet style restaurant) very tasty and plentiful. The only thing I could... More

Real Chinese food! Great buffet plus Menu. Ample seating. Easy location to get to, about 3 minutes off of I-55, next to the Walmart Shopping Center area. Delicious!

We went here on a Friday evening. It was very busy. The food is really good. We loved the coconut shrimp & monogolian beef. They have several different types of noodles like lo-mein - our fav is the thin rice noodles. There was frog legs, breaded shrimp, many different types of Asian food and American foods. Sushi & sliced to... More
