The service was great. The food was good but we have definitely had better. The stir fry was good though that you get to pick what you like and they cook it up for you. We probably won't go back though. Tried it twice and both times I didn't care for the food very much.

We have been here before and it was okay. Today, we were watched while we ate by the minimal staff that was there. Not sure if they were bored but very annoying. The food was luke warm at best and it was still an hour before closing. When my boyfriend ate RAW bacon and complained, the manager said some people... More

I was at this restaurant about a year ago and swore I would never return. Today, I had a craving for Chinese and I needed to do some shopping at Costco. This place is only a mile or so away so it seemed like a good time to see if they had improved. Unfortunately, they had not. The Chinese place... More

I've been to China 1 twice, once around 4:00 pm and on a separate day closer to 6:00 pm. The food was better later, probably because it was closer to dinner time. They do have some food items I haven't seen at other Chinese buffets (like crab legs), but I felt the quality of the food was sub-par. I'll go... More

China 1 fills a bit of a void for the Asian cuisine in Grandville, and although we like the place, it's nothing out of the ordinary. Its buffet is fairly varied, with a nice assortment of appetizers, soups, many different entrees, (mostly chicken, some seafood and beef), some vegetarian dishes, a few American, a huge salad bar, sushi, and a...

The food was all right but not the best I've had for the money. It was clean and staff was polite but can't say anything one way or another about the food

Visited the restaurant while traveling with my daughter The food was perfectly adequate. However, we have a restaurant in our hometown that tastes exactly the same. In other words, been there, tasted that. They do offer sushi, which was dry. The ice cream did not come from a machine and was veey good. If you need Chinese, it's okay. Though... More

Had lunch today with my Aunt at China 1 Buffet in Grandville. It was very good. The Peanut Butter Chicken and Bacon wrapped chicken were fantastic, had never had peanut butter chicken before. The Bourbon Chicken, Egg Rolls, Lo Mein Noodles, Honey Chicken, and Dumpling aka Pot Stickers were all so very good.  Didn't love the Teriyaki Chicken or Seasame... More
