Frankly, the buffet itself is pretty pedestrian, but they have a sushi chef who is good enough that Japanese restaurant employees have been known to visit. My wife is not a sushi eater but loves the shrimp sashimi; my personal preference is the smoked eel. The tuna melts in your mouth. Even the simple California roll is great. It’s not... More

Went with my kids for lunch. It was a good selection of sushi. Not huge though. The food was good and fresh. Not bad for a buffet.

Has just the right variety in choice. I'm a potsticker lover, and theirs are very good. Busy and friendly staff. I always come out trying to breathe my stomach down. Surprised I haven't reviewed before. Great portions on takeout shrimp and lobster sauce. BURP

You cant go wrong at China Buffet. I have not seen anything dirty and another thing I like is they are always re-filling the items so you know it wasn't sitting there long. In most cases I havent eaten the rest of the day.

We visited this restaurant last night at around 8pm. Our initial look at the buffet looked like the food had been sitting a while, not real fresh. But, after a long day and we were already there.. we each made a plate from the limited choices and discovered that most of the food was cold, or luke warm at best.... More

They used to have a great buffet at a reasonable price, but about a year or so ago they raised their prices and we just don't feel what is offered is worth the price.

The food is ok, and a good selection and the servers are nice. There is also a sushi bar. What I found uncomfortable is this place is kinda dirty and looks kinda run down outside. We had to second guess if it was open or not.

Okay variety of choices at the buffet. Sushi was good as many other reviewers have stated, one of the reasons for going as this was our first visit. We are new to SC and are trying various locations to eat. If I were in the area I might go back but would not make the 25 minute trip. Servers were... More

About 20 minutes from the hotel in Ft. Mill. Worth the drive, maybe a couple of dollars more than others of this type. Food was hot, tasted good, staff was attentive, kept refilling my iced tea without being asked.
