Just came from eating at China Buffet in Kannapolis. The food would have been good but it was not even warm. Therefore, I did not enjoy my meal.

Lots of choices on buffer bar. A bit expensive for lunch though. 9.00+ each. You have to time it right. I often have the thought that they refry and wok last nights food and stick it out first thing since it usually looks like warmed up and extra crispy. Time it right, early eaters 11:30 (as we made the mistake)... More

I was first introduced to this place about 6 or 7 years ago by coworkers when I was working in Concord. My wife and I were in the area about a week ago wrapping up Christmas shopping and decided to stop in for lunch and give it a try. Still good. Wide variety of items on the buffet spanning a... More

My food "kryptonite" is Americanized Chinese fast-food. I love terriyaki and chicken fingers and boneless spare ribs. I cannot help but eat these foods when they are available. So, during a visit to North Carolina, I had to try a place that called itself "China Buffet." All I can say is "yuck." The food here was awful and was not... More

The choices here are good to great. A lot of options. America food is available and an abundance of Chinese. Locally, this is one of the best places to get a good, quick lunch.

I always leave this restaurant feeling sick and so does my family. Always get drink orders wrong. Save your money and eat at other local restaurants.

Well, if you are reading this, I would expect that you would have some standards for eating out. Whatever those standards are, I expect this place to fall short. There isn't enough business to allow this buffet to really serve fresh food. Do you want to eat 2 day old shrimp, fish, or reheated beef? The price is fine, but... More
