Food was good and the service was great! Nice quite place to eat, very clean. The Buffett had a good variety of dishes and the price per person was not bad.

Overall the atmosphere was wanting but we came there for the food and that was pretty good considering that there's only one other Chinese place in Rockport.

All you can eat steak, all you can eat sushi, all you can eat of all the standard Chinese buffet staples, General Tso Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken, Beef Broccoli, Shrimp, crab legs, soup and much more! At about $14/plate you certainly get a lot of options. I've been eating here for a few years and they are consistently good and have... More

this is the Chinese Wall, not the Golden City Chinese Restaurant. Good buffet, good variety, hot stuff was hot, cold stuff was cold. Boiled shrimp tasted fresh. I liked the experience. Atmosphere is typical Oriental schtick!

Standard buffet items but also included crab legs, and other cold seafood (oysters, shrimp). I around 3PM for lunch and it seemed they were changing out a lot of items, maybe for dinner. So everything was fresh for me...not picked over or sloppy. Dishes were hot and green items (veggies) were still green and tender-crispy. I ate in, but they... More

We were visiting Portland for the holidays and were actually looking for a mexican restaurant advertised in the same area and instead stopped here. It's not great inside but we did enjoy the food.

The food was ok, nothing special over any other Chinese buffet. The wait staff was rude and unhelpful. I thought the buffet was over-priced.
