I have eaten at many Chinese buffets and have never seen one which offers such a huge variety at such a low price. I've paid over twice as much for 1/3 the selection. It is a buffet, and I've never had truly outstanding food at a buffet of any type. Staff is efficient and low key and the food is... More

I ate here on Sunday as I was passing through Frankfort and was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It was a large restaurant and just about full which shows me there is a lot of local support. Food was fresh and restocked efficiently. The sushi options were good and a grill your own picks was available. $8.78 including drink on... More

Pretty standard Chinese buffet food. The Mongolian grill in the back was an added bonus. Definitely worth the money if you have a big appetite.

My wife and I came to Frankfort for a dinner date and decided to come to China Buffet, the food was old and cold... The only thing that was good was the Pepsi.... Would not come back again....

I enjoy the food here - it is always fresh when I go at lunch, and the coi fish pond is pretty neat. Otherwise it is your typical Chinese buffet.

Good prices for family, I am impressed. They have a big selection of foods with a grill area you can choose what to cook. Good dessert selection, salad and Asian food. Great

Buffet has a lot of options but food doesnt seem fresh....The garlic bread seemed stale ...Rice and Noodles were ok-ish!! Only good thing is the reasonably cheap price for the buffet...

I think all the Chinese resturants in our area have the same cooks. It all tastes about the same. Usually pretty good here. The only think I can really complain about is the wait staff WILL NOT let you keep a plate on the table to put bones and other unwanted items in. What is up with that? Leave me... More

Have been eating here for years. Never again. Food has gone down hill recently and tonight was the final straw. Our waitress brought our change back to the table (nearly 18 bucks) in ones and change, then stood next to table and waited. I politely said thank you, we are fine. She then came right out and asked if I... More
