We went to the China Buffet for supper. There was plenty of food and one of the staff ept a good eye out when things got low. There is no reason to leave this restaurant hungry. I would recommend this restaurant to all that like to eat. As well as Chinese food, there is also the American delights. Try the... More

The variety of food is great and can't beat the price. The buffet is well maintained and fresh. There is ample parking. We visit weekly.

The food is typical buffet fare with nothing standing out as excellent. The old bat that handles the cash register does NOT belong in public. Barely speaks english, loud, and rude. That along with the mediocre food, and I will not go back.

We have been to this place before, so we waited for our waiter and order our drinks. He hardly said anything. I was hungry for a salad, but there was no salad at the salad bar and... More

Food sucky, yucky, yucky. Marginal food selection @ 6:30 PM which is usually a time of high customer traffic. My friend didn't even finish his plate. In all fairness, the place was clean!!!

This place was good. I must say I only ate a few things here but what I did ate made me very full. Great service. Kept the drinks full and the table free of plates.

The food is vet priced and they have a small selection of food. Went there while on vacation and it sinks in there. The buffet is 12.00 a person not including drinks. The China woman was not somebody you want to deal with and the food was dry. I'm so thankful we didn't stay and eat.

Was not impressed at all, thought seriously about leaving after the rest room visit but gave the benefit of the doubt. Food was only fair, soup was warm, variety was good but very limited. I also have never seen whit fried rice but I could be wrong. The staff could care less about anyone in the restaurant just talked back... More
