Just your typical run of the mill Chinese buffet. Not bad. Not the best. But a great value. Always clean and friendly.

The food was just warm which made the jel coating on food thick and strong. The pans that held the two soups had a jel coating on the top that you had to break through to get the warm thick soup. The bread coated shrimp tasted like the shrimp had been sitting in its own shrimpy water too long before... More

If my husband had not already started filling his plate, I would have left. The buffet food was unappetizing, and looked like it had been there all afternoon. Vegetables were few, and the restaurant seemed dirty. My food choices were ok, but the food temperatures was less than hot. We will not return.

Stopped for a quick bite and were not disappointed. Were offered a sample to taste before ordering. The buffet was fully stocked and the food was fresh and flavorful. Clean restaurant

Most of the dishes are chicken based. Not anything exceptional. Many of the dishes had a similar flavor. If you want fast buffet experience with nothing special this is it.

One time was enough for me. Food was awful. Buffet was minimally stocked. Drinks weren't refilled. Servers were teenaged Chinese girls who didn't seem to understand English and weren't efficient. Maybe new, IDK but food was terrible and that alone was enough to keep me from ever going back. Do yourself a favor and go to Peking Chinese Restaurant in... More

AWFUL!!! I went there once, and it was terrible.. The food on the hot bar, wasn,'t. Some of it wasn't even warm. Just absolutely nothing was good. I think the board of health needs a very serious inspection of this place. I will never go back. Granted, this is not suppose to be a fine dining experience, but it is... More

Nice staff and the deal is going for the bay buffet special. Very basic buffet and not large but should do for most seeking a good price and fill your stomach.

We enjoy the food at the Panda Chinese buffet. Great food for the price and a friendly staff. We usually eat there on the weekend.

We eat here occasionally and reviewed this establishment shortly after it opened a few years ago. Unfortunately instead of improving, the quality here has declined slightly over time so that this is just an average oriental buffet. It isn't bad and is still the best oriental in Benton, but it is not great nor a great value. Eat here when... More
