It is just oK by my standards. Hot and Sour soup was good. Lunch buffet, eeh. On the other hand probably the best this town is gonna get.

After having a terrible, overpriced "Chinese" meal in West Yellowstone, my friends from China who were visiting the U.S for the first time were not sure if we could find a taste of home. Chinatown Restaurant did not disappoint. My advice to anyone visiting this restaurant is to pass on the buffet. Ordering from the extensive menu is definitely the... More

Took the kids to the buffet and 1 child was charged as an adult. The food was okay, nothing special. Total bill was almost $60 for a family of 4 and both my daughters would never have been able to eat enough to justify the price, OR my wife and I. Won't return unless the items to choose from justify... More

My wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a meal out and settled on Chinese meal. Chinatown Restaurant was close to where we live so in we went. The restaurant is in a small strip mall across from the high school. It is small but very homey. Both of us had the combo of chicken chow mein. After an... More

This place was our favorite for over six years but the food (cook?) has declined in the past months and we stopped eating there. Sad, it was very good. The service is still great and they keep the seating clean. May give them another shot next year. Kind of following the "three strikes" rule.

We ate dinner there last week and I would call this fair to poor. The cashew chicken was pretty good but everything else was an affront to chinese people. I got through about half of my meal before I decided that I was just unjustly punishing my body by eating the food on my plate. I will not go again.

Lunch buffet kept fresher than most places, and mostly tasty, with a range of sauces available to season, and acceptable hot & sour soup. If you're really in the mood for a Chinese lunch buffet it's OK and I'd recommend it before any of the other places in Bozeman. Dinner buffet clearly not worth the extra money.

$14.95 for the Buffet mostly empty trays at 6:45 -7:PM was ridiculously expensive and the dishes that were there were not very fresh or even very good. The only item I enjoyed were the mushrooms. No shrimp dishes at all. :-( We have come here several times over the last 10 years. Seems it has gone down hill. Maybe if... More

The buffet choices were limited and what food was there seemed to be left out for a long time. Service was indifferent.

My daughter really wanted Chinese for lunch. We found this place on trip advisor and as far as we could could see it is one of two choices. We had the buffet. Too bad we wasted a meal here because there are so many other great places in Bozeman. Buffet trays were nearly empty. Food was lukewarm. Fried food tasted... More
