A very good selection of oriental cuisine, including sushi, egg drop soup, and various flavors and heat levels of chicken and shrimp. Tailored for the general public and not for those looking for fiery food - even the wasabi was mild. Though you don't expect stellar service in a buffet setting, the particular waitress we encountered seemed not to have... More

I have decided for the 2nd time not to visit this buffet anymore. Not once but twice have I had bad experiences with cleanliness here. Even bringing it to their attention, the situation was laughed at. I will say the food was good, but it's hard to enjoy a meal when you are worried about what you may find in... More

I love their crab rangoon. The buffet has a great variety. I love their fried shrimp better than any seafood place in town. The shrimp are small, but they are very lightly breaded which is what I prefer. I love their sesame seed chicken, too. And it's all you care to eat at one low price!

Buffet was very fresh when opened, as expected. I just wished that everything here would be fresh. When I grabbed the soy sauce container on the table it was sticky and gross. Clean restaurant gets a 5 when all else is great. Cleanliness always in my eyes gets at least 1 star off.

This Chinese buffet is one of the best that I have been to. The food is always fresh and the meat so tender. I have had hot and sour soup (my favorite) at many places but none compare to Wa Chang's. If in town it's a good inexpensive place to eat.

This restaurant has some awesome Chinese food, buffet style. Try the teriyaki chicken strips, pepper steak are my favorites but all the food I've tried here is great!

Wa Chang is an Asian buffet that offers your typical stir fries, rice, fried proteins, soup, salad and dessert. As with any buffet there are some really good dishes, some okay dishes and some not much to brag on. I won't discuss those I don't care for as it may very well be a matter of personal taste but I...

Fresh, fresh, fresh! Skip the chains...go straight to the buffet at Wa Chang. The selection is 2 to 3 times better than any other place we've been to...the food is great...and the prices are very reasonable.

This place has it all...Japanese, Chinese, Sushi, salad bar and a lot of hot food. I have only eaten here once. That visit I was pleased with. I would return to this place again.

I love good Chinese food.My last two visits to Wa Changs was not to be repeated. The buffet was not heated as needed and needed to be cleaned. The chicken was a mystery meat full of gristle and fat.There was mold in the very back of the dining area of which I reported to the health dept. it was very... More
