China hill was just terrible. The food was cold and disgusting. The deserts were dry and the ice cream was liquid. My family and I got sick after eating there. I will never go back again. I don't recommend EVER going there.

I'll echo what so many other locals have to say about The Hill- it's not as good as it used to be. Not as tasty, not as fun. Just not as good.

Went in to get take out for the family tonight and wasn't very happy when I found out that their online menu was not accurate. When I asked the woman at the register about the pricing difference and that the website was wrong, her only response was "oh, yes....he need to update website". The chicken fingers were dried up and... More

My wife and in laws had diner here and the waitress was absolutely amazing, very attentive and always on top of our every need. The food wasn't bad either. There is always a great selection in the buffet.

I usually visit this restaurant with friends but today I went myself. I ordered an excellent meal and there was so much that I had to take the rest of it home. Everything was delicious. And if you like their tea, you can buy soem to take home. The waitress, Nicole, was excellent.

It has not improved from 2 years ago. Many other places in town better and will NOT return. All appeared to have been frozen product and the veggies were also frozen out of the bag.

Coming from the New York area the buffet offering was not quite what we're use to and some of the food also contained MSG. Service was friendly and helpful. Two buses arrived towards the end of our meal and the buffet was pretty much wiped out.

I made the mistake of trying China Hill on a Friday evening. The place is obviously popular, and I had heard good things about it. I was getting takeout dinner, to drive home half an hour away. I ordered crab rangoon appetizer and a couple of main dishes, and sat in the lobby, in the chairs right in front of... More
